Wildlife Exclusion Services

Animals can cause a lot of damage and a huge headache when they make their way into your home. Squirrels, raccoons, bats, rats, and mice are small animals that can cause a problem that is going to need to be taken care of. They are a lot stronger than their size lets on to and they can tear, dig, and chew through all sorts of materials like concrete, brick, drywall, and metal much easier than one would think. It is going to require a process in order to remove them from your home.

Wildlife Proofing Service Areas



Animal Proofing

When you have figured out that you are dealing with an infestation there is an important process to follow to make sure that there are no lasting effects. A professional needs to be brought in to identify all of the areas they have occupied and where they have created their nest. They are going to take all of the necessary measures to make sure that all the animals have been removed from the home. This is important because if all of them are not removed, it can lead to another infestation.

Guano, Feces, and Droppings Clean Up

Then all the damage needs to be repaired and all of the urine and feces needs to be cleaned up in a professional way. This will require the use of an enzyme-based cleaner that is going to break down all of the biohazardous materials they leave behind. Damaged insulation, wood, pipes, and wires need to be found and replaced and their points of entry need to be closed up as well. If someone doesn’t adhere to the proper clean up instructions, it can cause illnesses and parasites to infect your home and this can be dangerous.

Animal Exclusion

Once the animals have been removed, you should take the extra measures to make sure it doesn’t happen again. The best idea is to “animal-proof” your home with materials and equipment that are guaranteed to keep them out. This can be achieved through a process known as wildlife exclusion. This is a process that utilizes metal materials that are much stronger than what you would find at your local hardware store.

These materials are used in the construction of equipment that has been designed specifically for this purpose. Professional installers will install these devices in areas that are seen as weak points where animals can get in and cause damage. These areas include brick or concrete stoops, attic vents, ductwork, roof ventilation grates, decks, soffit boards, and chimneys.

It can be a long process to handle the infestation and make sure that it doesn’t happen again. This is an investment that can be costly but will save the home that you have worked so hard for from becoming a home for nuisance animals. They are a necessary part of the environment but they are not the type of things that people want to cohabitate with. These processes should be done by trained professionals because they are going to have the knowledge necessary to make sure the problem is seen through to a successful end.
