When wildlife such as raccoons, rodents, and birds take up residence in your walls or attic, they leave behind quite a mess that can include: feces, nesting material, fleas, ticks and lice. This type of contamination can damage insulation, reduce energy efficiency, compromise structural elements of your home and produce mould and odour. Not only are these problems very taxing economically if left untreated, but they can also cause serious and sometimes incurable illness. In order to help make this unpleasant reality a simple fix, Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control’s team wants you to know that their process has your family’s health, home and wallet in mind.
Here is how Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control can help assess, remove, clear and clean problematic contamination from your home:
Assess and Remove
The first step in our process involves a specialized assessment by one of our trained and experienced Wildlife Technicians. They go where the animals go to determine the level of contamination and damage that exists inside your attic. Our technicians will assess the quality of your insulation and building materials and provide recommendations for repair.
Clear and Clean
Employing the industry’s leading techniques and equipment, like powerful trade vacuums and advanced breathing equipment, our equipped technicians make it priority to clear contaminated materials from your home and return it to a healthy, livable state. Once the area is clear and clean, the team prepares to install environmentally conscious cellulose insulation to replace what has been removed.
Remove Wildlife with Care
Cellulose Insulation Information
Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control’s trained and experienced technicians will begin your insulation strategy with a situation analysis. This includes considering if your present insulation is up to Environment Canada’s recommended energy efficiency level (R-Value) — a method of measuring thermal resistance.
Our Insulation Removal and Reinstallation Strategy is unique because:
It’s Environmentally Conscious
The cellulose insulation we use to replace your contaminated insulation contains 87% recycled content and is the greenest insulation product on the market today. Cellulose insulation is better at keeping your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter because it’s scientific structure blocks air much better than its fibreglass predecessor, effectively saving energy and money.
It’s Health Conscious
Our insulation strategy begins with the careful removal of contaminated insulation. A powerful and accurate blower system minimizes traffic through the home and quickly covers each nook and crevice with fresh insulation for your attic. Cellulose insulation does not introduce harmful pollutants or chemicals into your home. As an added bonus, cellulose insulation is also mould, mildew, pest and fire resistant!
It Makes Economic Sense
If your home’s insulation has been damaged by wildlife, the safest course of action might include removing and replacing your insulation. However, it shouldn’t have to mean bad news for your bank account. In fact, our cellulose insulation can decrease your energy bills by up to 60% in two years depending on the severity of the prior situation.
