Homeowners face a lot of different types of damages from animals. The most common damage caused to homes is from animals chewing through fascia boards, roofs, tearing vent screens, and attic fans. Most commonly this type of damage is caused by bats, raccoons, and birds. These types of damages are a result of an animal trying to access an attic. As our communities become more urban and or rural areas get smaller animals are searching for alternative birthing places. And what makes a better place than an attic. Our homes are a great place for an animal to have a baby especially attics! They are high up away from danger, dry and comfy. This type of environment gives them a feeling of safety. Great for them, bad for the homeowner.
The problem with animals in our attic is the damage they create. These animals are not house trained so they urinate and poop everywhere causing foul odors and spreading bacteria, and destroying our homes insulation by smashing it. Smashing the insulation decreases our homes heating and cooling ability. It is important to have the animal removed as soon as it is discovered. An animal removed quickly can be fairly inexpensive but an animal that has been in an attic for a long time can be very expensive. The longer the animal is in an attic the more damage they have time to do. Don’t delay call Animal Control Solutions to resolve all your animal problems.
