Apex Wildlife Control will come to your home and clean and disinfect within the same day. However, we need to ensure the animal is no longer there before we do any cleaning. We will come out and do an interior and exterior inspection first. The technician will look for signs of any recent activity in your attic.
Our technicians will check for chewed wiring and visible damage to the HVAC and duct-work. They also take pictures of those areas and report back to you. Next they will do the exterior inspection. They will locate all possible and actual entry points. Once completed, they will send you all of the pictures and submit a detailed quote. The quote will include sealing your home and trapping the animals.
Sometimes it seems like the animal is gone, but this is not always the case. Wildlife will sometimes leave during the day due to excessive temperatures for food or to search for water. We check to be sure they are not currently still remaining in your attic.

Attic restoration is your best option at that point and we have companies we can recommend. These restoration companies will come into your home and evaluate what can be salvaged and what is ruined.
If you leave insulation that has been saturated with urine, the odor will build up and drift into your home. If there is enough urine it will start to show on the walls and ceilings of your home. The urine moisture in the insulation will eventually start to grow mold. Breathing mold particles can make members of your family very sick.
