Wildlife Nesting in Your Attic? Get Them Out!

Critter Control Truck with Attic Restoration EquipmentYou've called a professional to remove the wildlife animals from your attic, but your journey to a critter-free home doesn't stop there!

Wildlife animals that have nested in the attic may create serious problems that you are not considering. Many wildlife animals carry ectoparasites, which seek a new host (unfortunately, this is often you!) immediately as soon as the wildlife host has been evicted. Ectoparasites, or parasites that live on the outside of their host, that could be found in your home after a wildlife infestation include mites, ticks, fleas, or bat bugs. Mice in the attic, bats in the ceiling, and raccoons nesting in attics are all infamous for bringing pests into your home. Critter Control of Grand Rapids will inspect your attic and treat the affected area for these pests.

The droppings left behind inside your attic will result in matted, soiled insulation, and a reduced "R" value. "R" value refers to your insulation's resistance to heat flow. The higher the R value, the more effective the insulation — and the most energy savings to your wallet. It's worth investing in the proper amount of insulation in order to have the most efficient attic as possible.

Wildlife droppings inside the attic can also lead to stained ceilings and highly unpleasant odors. Our attic restoration professionals will remove soiled insulation and replace it with your choice of insulation product. We can prepare insurance bids with most major insurance companies and get your attic back into shape in no time!
