Bats, mice, rats, raccoons, squirrels – these animals are frequent encroachers in attics in New York and New Jersey. They will often set up nests in warm and dry attics where the often unvisited space means they can go undisturbed for months. During this time, their presence can cause destruction in your attic that poses risks to your home as well as your health.
In addition to removing these nuisance wildlife, NY and NJ Animal Control Trappers also performs the restoration services to correct animal caused issues in your attic. We can remove dangerous bacteria animals spread, replace damaged construction materials, and remove debris. If you need support for attic wildlife damage in NY and NJ, contact us today at 646-741-4333.
Our Animal Damage Repair Techniques for Common Household Damage
The longer an infestation is permitted to occupy an attic, the more extensive the damage. To restore your attic, we address different concerns:
- Droppings and Urine
Excrement can contain bacteria and parasites, while the moisture will lead to mold, staining, odors, and weakened insulation and wood. We seal off the area and remove this debris without releasing harmful particles into the air. Then we replace any damaged insulation, drywall, or joists.
- Oil Stains
Rats and bats excrete a protective oil that will rub off on the areas they crawl through and nest. Eventually, dust will collect, resulting in black stains. We scour surfaces to remove grease buildup and replace insulation and drywall where it cannot be removed.
- Torn Insulation
Rodents, squirrels, and raccoons will often use pieces of torn drywall in their nests. This damage results in less efficiency for your cooling and heating systems. We remove and replace damaged insulation.
- Holes in Walls
Teeth and claws can tear holes in the drywall as animals attempt to get to hiding spaces behind the wall. For small holes, we can patch the area with joint compound. For large holes, we cut out the damaged section of drywall and replace it.
- Chewed Pipes
To keep their teeth maintained, rats and mice chew constantly. Many will chew on exposed pipes, causing leaks and inefficient water flow. Our restoration services isolate the damaged section and replace it with new pipe.
- Chewed Wires
Wildlife will also chew through wiring which can lead to flickering lights, shorted circuits, and even fire if there are sparks around flammable surfaces. We can replace the damaged wires before any electrical damage can occur.
We also have solutions for other damage caused by invading animals in your attic and other areas of your home. If you suspect wildlife in your attic, call NY and NJ Animal Control Trappers for removal, exclusion, and restoration so that we can bring your attic back to a pristine state.
