When customers call us regarding their problem with wildlife infestations, they usually also ask us to help out with the damages left behind. In fact, the first thing that most homeowners notice are the damages caused by the animals and not the animals themselves! Larger animals, like raccoons, are actually capable of creating holes in your soffit or roof. Other types of animal damage include ruined insulation, animal feces and chewed wiring.
Not all Damage is Physical
When we talk to our customers about the damage repair to their home, we primarily discuss three different things. The first is obviously, the physical damage as stated above. The next two dimensions to animal damage that we are concerned about are the effects to your resale value and energy efficiency. What will a prospective buyer say when their home inspector tells them that the attic has feces in it? Any time a heavy animal like a raccoon is able to spend a period of days or weeks in your attic you will see heavy trampling, damaging the R value of your insulation, resulting in higher utility bills until it has been fixed.
We Can Fix the Damages for You
Many insurance companies will help pay for animal damage to your home. Whether out of pocket or through insurance, we can bring your home back to pre animal infestation condition or better!
Preventing Future Animal Infestations
It is important that no other wildlife animals are left inside the building before we seal any holes and crevices because once they get stuck inside, they will cause more damage. They could also die inside your house and eventually rot, and nobody likes a rotting animal in their home! Once we are sure that all animals have been safely excluded from your home or business establishment, we can start fixing the damage. We will tightly seal all the holes that have been caused by the animals. Larger holes may need advanced fixes, which we are also capable of fixing. Cracks and crevices can be sealed to prevent small creatures, such as bats and mice, from re-entering.
