Raccoons in Attic, Valparaiso, IN

Raccoons in Attic, Valparaiso, IN

It won’t go unnoticed if you have raccoons in your attic. They aren’t exactly the type to live quietly and peacefully up there. They like to scamper and have fun. They scratch and are very vocal. To them, your attic is a playground, along with being their favorite type of safe home. There are a number of reasons why you don’t want to continue to have these uninvited boarders, and our team at AdvantaClean of Michiana will be glad to help you with attic decontamination once these critters have been evicted.

  • Insulation DamageRaccoons in attic spaces love to mess with the insulation. The insulation cannot do its job properly when it is removed from some areas and bunched up into others.
  • Duct Damage – It may seem implausible, but raccoons in attic spaces can and do tear apart ducts in an attic. If you hold your hand up to one of your air conditioning vents and don’t feel as much air coming through it as usual, you might just be cooling the attic instead!
  • Structural Damage – Even more unbelievable is that raccoons in attics will even cause damage to more solid structural components such as beams, the roof and pipes. They will use anything they can find for bedding materials and simply love to cause havoc.
  • Wiring – This is probably one of the most quickly noticed problems, but can also be the most serious in terms of potentially damaging your home. A chewed wire can short out and set your house on fire in rare instances. Sometimes they just manage to chew enough to electrocute themselves, which may result in no loss of electricity, but the smell of a decomposing raccoon will soon become quite evident.
  • Health Hazards – Unless you have highly evolved and trained raccoons (highly unlikely), they are not going outdoors for elimination, and thus are filling your attic with urine and feces. Raccoon feces contain roundworms, which can be spread throughout your home through airflow. You might also find the odor become overwhelming in the home at some point.

Don’t wait until you have a raccoon fall in your lap, your Valparaiso, IN home burns down, or your family becomes ill with roundworms. Send those raccoons or other critters packing, then give us a call!
