Humans aren’t the only ones who think Coquitlam is a great place to live. We share our urban environment with wildlife of all sorts. These animals are a natural part of our surroundings. Most of them called this area home before people moved in. As the city filled in and built up, they adapted to life with humans. Bats, birds, mice, raccoons, skunks and squirrels frequent our neighbourhoods, yards and sometimes even our homes.
When any wildlife set up residence in your home, it’s understandable that you would want them out. They belong out in nature and not in your house. Other companies may get rid of these unwanted guests for you, but they might injure or kill them in the process. At Skedaddle, we value the safety of all of our wild animals as much as we do our customers’ safety. With more than 32 years of humane wildlife control experience, we know that you don’t have to sacrifice one for the other.
When we are called out to a home for wildlife removal, we conduct a thorough assessment before taking any action. We look for signs of an animal’s presence, such as droppings and nests, and determine where they are gaining access into — or under — the house. Our technicians leave no stone unturned, checking over rooftops, chimneys, attics and crawlspaces. They aren’t afraid to get their hands and knees dirty!
These experts know their stuff, so they know exactly what they’re looking for. They can determine what species have invaded your turf and what damage they have done to your home. They also know how and when to remove the animals, so they aren’t injured in the process. When the animals have little ones, they ensure that they remain safe and reunited with mom. They never use harmful traps or chemicals, which are usually not just deadly for the animals but also unsafe for humans and their pets.
Once the technicians are certain any unwanted houseguests are no longer hanging around, they make sure your home is safe for you. They’ll clean and clear the area of any contaminated materials so that you aren’t at risk of getting sick from trying to take care of it yourself. When wildlife finds their way into homes, they usually leave a mess of urine and feces. This can create a health hazard. When Skedaddle is on the job, you won’t have to worry about it! After removing contaminated materials, they’ll clean contaminated surfaces as well.
The technicians also check for other types of damage. Many species are known to chew on wires, gnaw on wood, tear up shingles and rip up insulation. We’ll make sure that you know what types of damage have been done. We offer attic restoration services and can replace insulation that has been damaged or contaminated with cellulose insulation.
Once we’ve taken care of humanely removing the wildlife and cleaning up the messes they leave behind, we perform one final step to ensure your home is safe and secure. Animals like bats and mice can squeeze through the tiniest holes. It isn’t enough to seal off the places where the animal we just evicted entered. If there are more gaps or weak areas, your home is vulnerable to future intrusions.
It takes a trained eye to locate all the potential entry points around your home. Skedaddle technicians have that eye, and they’ll make sure all vulnerable spots are sealed or closed off. You get to enjoy sharing the natural environment with wildlife while keeping the inside of your home safe.
