Hearing heavy thumping sounds in your attic? Almost like a person is walking around up there or a bowling ball moving across your attic floor? You more than likely have a raccoon or two living up there.
When searching for a winter home, raccoons look for high, safe warm places to nest in. Your attic with its soft, warm insulation makes the perfect nursery for a choosy mother raccoon. Raccoons are extremely strong, and their sharp teeth and claws help them tear through your soffits, gable vents, roof vents, rotted wood and even right through your shingles to reach that perfect “raccoon apartment” at the top of your house!
The technician will then inspect the outside of your home for entry points that raccoons will use to enter your home. Sometimes it may be a hole in the underside of your soffit, your siding or even holes chewed right through your shingles.
We don’t just walk around your home for five minutes and give you a quick estimate asking for thousands of dollars. Our technicians take their time and thoroughly inspect your entire home from foundation to roof line for entry points such as holes in your soffits, torn screening, rotted wood, unsealed ground vents, chewed gable vents, and holes in your roof. The technician will take photos of all raccoon entry points he sees on the outside of your home as well.
After taking photos of the entry points on the outside of your home, the technician will provide you with a comprehensive inspection report along with all the photos he took during the inspection. This inspection report will list damaged areas of your home such as soiled insulation or damaged HVAC ducts. This report will also list areas where the raccoons are entering your home, and recommendations for sealing these entry points. He will take time to answer all your questions so that before he leaves, you will know exactly what needs to be done to solve your raccoon problem.
The technician will also provide a trapping estimate on the spot, and in most cases can set traps that very day. So if you’re ready to get rid of these little freeloaders, give Apex Wildlife Control a call today. We are here to help!
