Nashville Attic Insulation Services from Wildlife Damage
When animals move into an attic or crawlspace, they cause a lot of damage. In addition to chewing holes in walls to access the areas, they will tear down parts of the structure in order to make their nests, and leave a mess of feces and urine.
In addition to removing the pesky animals responsible for the damage, Animal Pros can help restore the structure of your attic to its original condition. Other animal removal companies may leave you with the aftermath, but we’ll take care of the animal infestation problem from start to finish. One of the most common problems with animals in the attic, is damage to the insulation. Some animals that enter attics are very large, and will damage insulation in several ways. Flattening of the insulation from a heavy raccoon, opossum, or squirrel is expected as they move from one end of the attic to the other. Fecal contamination or areas that they utilize for their bathroom can quickly damage insulation. Dropping accumulate daily, and there is only so much urine and feces insulation can absorb. Contaminated insulation will need to be properly removed completely. Call our Animal Pros restoration team to help with all your fecal removal and insulation needs.
Attic Disinfecting and Sanitizing Services in Nashville
Animal droppings or feces in a attic can create a serious health hazard. As the animal continually moves over droppings, airborne particulates can be circulated. If there is duct damage, and feces present, this could be a disaster. Proper precautions should be taken for remediating animal feces in a attic. Contaminated areas should be avoided. Areas in your attic with heavy fecal accumulations need to be kept undisturbed and professional help should be contacted. Fecal accumulations in attic areas can often harbor pathogens, parasites, and bacteria. Droppings do not organically break down as they might naturally outside exposed to the elements. In a attic area with limited ventilation, bacteria and zoonotic disease can be present in animal feces. Exposure from disturbance of particulates of contaminated material in your attic can occur, and you should contact Animal Pros specialists for immediate help.
Animal Pros specialists starts the restoration process by using full personal protection equipment fully disinfecting everything in the attic before anything is touched. This includes disinfecting joists, beams, insulation, contaminates, wires, and anything else that may be in your attic. Next, removing contaminates as some droppings will be large and need to be removed manually. Once all contaminates are removed, soiled insulation can be removed by our commercial vacuums. Once all insulation is out, careful inspection of drywall and electric wires can be visually inspected. Disinfecting and sanitizing once everything is out of the attic, ensures contact to the drywall and joists, allowing new installation of insulation to be replaced.
HVAC Duct Damage in Attic from Wildlife Damage
Animals in a attic, will often associate the cool touch of the duct lines, to water. Using their hands just like we do, they can easily tear duct lines wide open creating costly problems. If the animal or animals start using the duct line as shelter, or if there is any feces or urine in the line, that leads to contamination and can result in needing to replace the entire duct system. EPA regulations suggest if any animal has entered soft insulated duct work, that there is no amount of duct cleaning that can work. The only thing that will be effective is removing and replacing the duct line. Contaminates from feces, urine, blood, and body oils do not break down in a hvac line especially a open line that contains moisture. Disturbance of the feces or droppings from the animal can spread air borne particulates throughout the entire duct system, resulting in costly damage. Quick action should be taken if you suspect animals are in your duct lines. Call our Animal Pros restoration specialists today.
Electrical Wire Damage in Attic from Wildlife Damage
Electrical Wire damage caused by animals will usually occur when electric wires are in close proximity to where animals are located in your attic. As animals move in tight places along the soffit areas in a attic, electrical wires can often get chewed, pulled, or shredded from wildlife. The most obvious sign if you have animals or electric wire damage, is if you have lights, fixtures, plugs, or appliances, that have stopped working. Prompt action is required if you feel animals have damaged your electric lines.
