Raccoons are mischievous creatures; their curiosity often causes them to wander into unfamiliar territory in search of food and shelter. We have encountered raccoons living in the attics, crawlspaces, and sheds of homes and businesses throughout Mississippi.
To find a warm, secure place to rear their young, raccoons will take up residence in attics, which quickly leads to an infestation and health concerns due to contamination of the insulation from the animal’s urine and feces. You may begin to start smelling a horrible odor and notice stains on your ceiling. Some raccoons carry parasites and diseases which could be passed onto you and your family and pets. If your attic has become contaminated, let us help you restore it with our attic insulation and restoration services.
Raccoons are not typically aggressive but will defend themselves and their young if they feel threatened or trapped. It can be dangerous for an untrained person to try and attempt to remove a raccoon from their property without the proper knowledge and training.
ATTIC DECONTAMINATION & OTHER SERVICES: In some situations, it may be desirable to clean your attic after you've removed raccoons from the space. They can leave behind large amounts of droppings, urine, hair, oils, food, nesting material, and so on. These remnants can attract insects like cockroaches, and the scent left behind can encourage new raccoons to attempt to chew or break their way into your house. It's possible or likely that mold will grow on the areas of feces and urine, which damages wood or sheetrock. Some of the mold can potentially cause diseases that people can catch, and some of the feces themselves can cause diseases, such as Salmonella or Leptospirosis, and raccoon feces can contain roundworm eggs, which can infect people. It's also adviseable to repair any torn ductwork in an attic, along with torn pipe insulation or chewed electrical wires.
