Older homes are full of charm and beauty. Unfortunately, they can also be full of pesky stowaways in the attic and crawlspaces. If you’ve noticed unusual noises from the attic or walls, have found bat guano or droppings, or seen damaged, chewed wires, then you may have an infestation of some kind. Rodent infestations are a nuisance, but with the help of an experienced rodent removal team and proper prevention tactics, your home will be rodent-free in no time.

It’s common to find pests such as rats, raccoons, squirrels, or bats, in attics and crawlspaces, especially in older homes. Rodents and other pests can do significant damage to wiring and plumbing, and they can even carry disease, so it’s important to remove them as soon as they are detected. Smaller pests such as mice or rats can often be taken care of with species-specific traps. Larger pests such as raccoons, squirrels, or bats will require professional removal. At Atticare, we’ll identify the type of infestation in your home, and then we’ll identify the points of entry and any nests. When we remove the dead rodents, we’ll make sure they can’t come back.
Thoroughly cleaning your attic and crawlspace is just as important as removing the rodent infestation because accumulated droppings and urine can he a health risk. Our professionally trained team will vacuum and remove waste from the area, cleaning the space so that it’s clean and safe for human use.
Whether you’re in an older home or new construction, it can be a smart idea to invest in rodent prevention tools and materials to keep out pesky critters. During our inspection, we’ll identify points of entry and vulnerable spots in your home, and we’ll install mesh or expandable foam to block those entries. After cleanup, we’ll clean out your old insulation and install new, rodent-proof insulation (internal link to: New Page – Insulation Services) to restore a healthy environment and keep your home rodent-free. It’s a smart idea to regularly check the exterior of your home for holes or cracks (in the foundation, behind gutters, or in the roof), so you can repair these immediately.
Hiring a Removal Company
If you’ve identified a rodent infestation in your home, it may be time to hire a professional removal company. When hiring a rodent removal service, make sure the company can respond quickly and that their services are comprehensive. Service should include inspection, removal, cleanup, and repair of any damage. Also, look local and get recommendations: local companies serving your community should have good reviews for service and customer care.
