If you keep seeing raccoons on your property and one of them got into your attic, you need to get it removed. A raccoon can cause damage, such as chewing through roofing or any gaps you may have in your home, as well as leaving behind very bad smells from urine and feces. Fortunately, you can get the raccoon out, by calling an animal removal company.
Most states allow you to kill raccoons, but only during hunting season. If you want to kill the raccoon or keep it alive, contact an animal removal company. They can trap the raccoon and then release it in another area far from homes. If you do not mind the raccoon from being killed, the animal control company can put poison in the attic the raccoon will eat. The contractor will know of the rules and regulations they must follow.
Once the raccoon is out the animal control contractor will make sure there are no baby raccoons in the attic as well. A few babies can cause even more damage when they become adults. In some cases, the female raccoon will protect her babies and get aggressive, which is why you should never do this on your own.
The animal removal company may set up traps outside to trap raccoons there. This is important as these raccoons may also get inside your attic, especially if the weather is turning cooler or if there are any pregnant raccoons as this will be a safe place for them to have their babies.
The animal removal company can clean up once the raccoons are gone. This may be replacing insulation, fixing walls and flooring, and more. You should also contact your insurance company to see if they cover any of these repairs as things can get expensive.
The animal removal company will also do everything they can to get the odors out of the attic. They use special chemicals that have enzymes that will take the smell out and leave your attic smelling fresh. If your attic smells very bad this smell could easily get inside your home.
This company will look outside to see if there is any damage the raccoons may have caused when trying to get inside your home. This may be roof damage, holes in the wall, and more. All of this can save you a lot of time and money as you would not have to hire another contractor to come to your home.
