If you think raccoons may be in your attic, you’ll want to get them out as quickly as possible. Raccoons can cause a lot of damage (and fast). The longer you wait, the worse off you’ll be. Not to mention, if the raccoon is a momma, it won’t be long before her babies are grown and having little ones of their own.
It’s clear – the time to act is now! If you’re wondering just what these rodents are capable of, let us fill you in. Then, give us a call, so that we can get them out of your chimney the right away!
One thing is for certain… raccoons like to explore! And they are pretty much willing to work their way through anything to help them get where they want. They can cause damage to walls, ceilings, ducts, crawl spaces, and more. They will form numerous pathways, allowing them easy access to just about anywhere in your home!
Raccoons are also known for ripping apart insulation, flashing, vents, soffits, and electrical wires. All of these things can lead to some serious hazards, such as leaks, electrical fires, water damage, issues with the air conditioning, and lots more. Solve the problem now, before you are forced to spend time and money on various repairs.
Making Themselves At Home
On top of their destructive personality, raccoons are known for using your space as their own for breeding, defecating, eating, and more. They are drawn to food, so they will likely spot and steal anything you leave lying around. On top of that, they look to your attic as a perfect spot for having babies. It is a warm and protected area, that is rarely disrupted by visitors. Once babies are born, you’ll have an even bigger mess on your hands!
And their urine and feces can lead to big issues, too. Not only will these things cause a lot of damage, but they’ll stink up your home, and let’s not even get started on the cleanup process. To top it off, raccoon feces can be extremely damaging to one’s health and often carries ringworm and the Giardia infection.
Keep A Safe Distance
If raccoons have found their way into your home, we strongly suggest staying away and letting us handle the problem. Raccoons can be very aggressive, hurting loved ones and family pets, and they often carry rabies. It’s definitely not worth the risk and is a job best left to a professional.
