Animal Damage Repairs

Minor Repairs Prevent Major Damage

A small hole in your fascia board, attic vent, dormer or gable vent can allow flying squirrels, red squirrels, mice and bats into your home, where they can leave droppings, urine, fleas and ticks in your attic. Let a Critter Control specialist inspect your home and plug these entrance points before they become a larger issue.

Animal Feces Cleanup, Sanitation, Disinfectant

Feces left from wildlife in your home can be more dangerous than the animal itself. Every day byproducts of living, like fur and feces, will remain—and the latter is not something you want lingering in your home for very long. Different wildlife animals will have different excrement behaviors; for example, raccoons will use one area of your attic for living and one area known as the "raccoon latrine".

Dangers of Animal Droppings

Animal feces can grow a number of hazardous spores that, when ingested, can cause serious and sometimes fatal illnesses. Rodents can transmit salmonellosis through contamination of food, and raccoons are notorious for transmitting raccoon roundworm through infected feces.
 
Where Do You Find Animal Droppings in the Home?
By no means a comprehensive list of where to find animal droppings in the home, below are a few common areas wildlife prefer in your home:
  • Attics (raccoons, bats, squirrels)
  • Kitchens (rodents)
  • Garage (raccoons)

Attic Restoration & Insulation

Installation, Cleanup, & Repair

Wildlife in home attics, including raccoonsbats, and mice can create a variety of dangerous hazards. These animals often carry ectoparasites such as bat bugs, mites, ticks, and fleas. Without proper treatment, these ectoparasites can remain in your home even after the removal of the problem animal.

If your attic insulation is damaged or does not adhere to U.S. Department of Energy guidelines, you will need to replace it or restore it. The professionals at Critter Control are equipped to measure existing attic insulation, remove and dispose soiled or damaged insulation, and install new attic insulation.
 
Let our attic restoration professionals remove that soiled insulation and replace it with your choice of insulation products. Our specialists can prepare insurance bids with most major insurance companies and get your attic back in shape in no time. 
 
Warning: Insulation materials are potentially hazardous to your health, including vermiculite attic insulation, which could contain asbestos. Only certified insulation professionals should handle and remove vermiculite insulation.

T.A.P. Pest jControl Insulation

T.A.P. is a revolutionary green insulation product made from recycled paper that incorporates a borate-based pest control for new and existing homes and buildings. Not only does T.A.P. outperform traditional insulation in nearly every category, it also controls pests such as ants, termites, and cockroaches at the same time!
 
The critter Control team is available to remove old damaged insulation, install TAP pest control insulation and fully restore your attic.

Other Home Repairs

Caulk & Sealing
Caulking and sealing can help save on your energy bill, but also help keep unwanted pests out. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) service practices to prevent pests must include the sealing of all cracks and crevices with the appropriate materials, which also helps save energy. Inspections and monitoring for pests and conditions are conducted in order to identify problem areas and prevent small pest infestations from becoming large ones. 

Chimney Cap and Screen Installation
Birds, squirrels, and raccoons use chimneys as shelter. Screening vents, installing chimney caps/screens, and closing entry holes reduces the opportunity for future conflicts with other unwanted nuisance animals. 
Chimney Repairs, Sealing, Tuck Pointing
Chimneys are exposed to the worst extremes of the elements, and degradation of the flashing, bricks, mortar joints and concrete caps are common issues.

Crawlspace Cleanup
Your animal is gone, but what about the droppings left behind? Is there damage to your pipes or insulation? Do you smell odors, have water leaks, or notice a loss of energy 

Foundation Vents
After the removal of unwanted animals from crawlspaces, Critter Control will repair damages and implement prevention techniques. Screening foundation vents, installing chimney caps and screens, and closing entry holes reduces the opportunity for future conflicts with other unwanted nuisance animals.

Gutter Cleaning & Leaf Guards
Clogged gutters can cause water damage to your home. Let Critter Control clean your gutters and install Leaf Proof and Leaf Defier gutter guards to protect your home from foundation problems, basement leaks, rotting windows, rotting fascia boards and soffits, mold and mildew, and insect infestations.

Excellent customer service! Last week we realized a family of cute birds were nesting in our roof soffit. The nest was right above our deck, and they were getting aggressive with our dogs and us. A super friendly service coordinator answered the phone right away. She was able to get us scheduled for the next day. The tech showed up on time, in a freak April snowstorm! He quickly addressed the issue, thoroughly explained what he did and when he would be back. He showed up right on time again, made sure our squatting birds were gone for good and completed the permanent fix where they were accessing the soffit. Probably one of the easiest service calls we’ve ever had! Thank you!

We had a nuisance woodpecker driving us insane drumming on the metal chimney cap. We called Brittni and she provided detailed information over the phone as to estimated costs and methods used. She promptly followed up everything with a detailed email. Scheduling was easy. Terrance was on-time and very pleasant to work with. He inspected the chimney for damage and for evidence of nests = none found! He installed two deterrents and wa on his way! Highly recommend!

We just had Critter Control come out to catch another squirrel that breached our house trim. They chewed through the wood. We caught two squirrels. They then came back and replaced the wood trim with a piece of metal and painted it the same color as the rest of our trim. Looks really good. They do it all!! Highly recommend Critter Control!!
