As part of our process, Skedaddle’s wildlife technicians will perform a thorough inspection of your attic to determine the extent of contamination and damage. We will be sure to take lots of photos so you can get a good idea of exactly what you are dealing with.
The amount of damage you can expect to find after removing uninvited raccoon guests depends on the length of their stay. The longer they have been up there the worse it usually is. In some cases, especially when the raccoons are evicted quickly, only spot treatments and removals of soiled insulation are required.
Due to the harmful bacteria that are easily transmittable through raccoon feces to humans and pets, it is important to always hire professional wildlife removal specialists to clean the area. Skedaddle technicians perform a thorough inspection of an attic to determine every contaminated area, and come prepared with the proper protective equipment to safely remove the waste without spreading bacteria. In the case that you find yourself cleaning up after raccoon feces in your attic, be sure to take the following measures to protect your safety:
To remove the feces from your attic:
For attics with severe raccoon damage and contamination spot cleanups are not possible. In these cases, it is important to hire a professional to safely remove all contaminated insulation and materials and blow new insulation back in.
During their stay a single raccoon, or a family, will constantly be walking across insulation, flattening it, and destroying its ability to keep your house warm. Mother raccoons will also often rip up large amounts of insulation to make their den more cozy for their growing babies. Once a raccoon has rearranged an attic to their liking, there is a big mess to be cleaned. While quick action can result in simple spot cleaning, when the attic is in need or restoration you can trust Skedaddle’s proven process to return your home to a healthy state:
