Attics are a popular place for critters to hide in. The insulation of your home provides a warm environment for these animals to build nests in and raise their young. And these critters will cause damage while doing it. Critters are known to tear at insulation and fabric to build their nests. This can lead to costly repairs and higher heating bills. Let us handle this and save you money, while keeping your home safe and free of noise, bacteria and contamination.
If animals have inhabited the attic of your home, attic restoration is a pivotal part of Wildlife X Team® Austin's complete wildlife control solution. Our technicians will restore your attic to good, clean condition — the way it was before wildlife decided to move in and make a mess of things.
Common Attic Problems
Animals can leave a long list of problems in your attic after their removal.
- Nesting debris, such as sticks, leaves, stray, etc.
- Damaged insulation resulting in lower heating efficiency.
- Droppings and urine can lead to a strong, foul, odor that can seep into your home.
- The animal scent left behind after trapping can attract other animals into your home.
Is soiled insulation dangerous?
Wildlife like rodents, raccoons, bats, and more will leave their feces in your attic, often times on top of your insulation. Rodents and squirrels will crawl through your insulation, making a cozy nest for themselves. While they’re in there, they will urinate and defecate in the insulation, making it a health hazard for you and your family.
It’s important not to attempt to remove the insulation yourself. The professionals at Wildlife X Team® Austin will remove the soiled insulation in a safe and effective way. We ensure that any contamination will not affect the rest of your home as we remove it.
