Inspection For Raccoon Feces In Your Attic
Apex Wildlife Control will send one of our wildlife technicians to your home to clean and disinfect your attic the same day. However, we do need to ensure the animal is no longer present in your attic before the clean up begins. The technician will first perform interior and exterior inspections of your home. For the interior he will be looking for signs of recent activity in the attic and other areas of your home. The technician is checking for damage to the HVAC and ducts work and chewed wiring, and they take pictures of any damage as they go. The exterior inspection is done to locate all possible and actual entry points. Once completed, the technician sits down with you to review all the pictures, the damages found, and will provide you with a detailed quote that includes trapping the raccoons and the sealing of your home.
While it may seem like the animal is gone that is not always the case. Wildlife will sometimes leave an attic during the day due to excessive temperatures, forage for food, and seek water. We want to make certain that they are not still hanging out in your attic.
