Hearing noises from above? It almost always means a critter is scurrying about! Let us give you an attic inspection to find the cause.

Attic inspections for nuisance noises

Attics are a favorite new home by many Georgia critters. With warm insulation and shelter from predators, it’s no wonder that they’re naturally drawn to attics. Unfortunately for homeowners, this can be a big headache.

When insulation is torn apart by nesting raccoons, possums, squirrels, etc., heating and cooling problems are quickly realized by massive gaps in the attic insulation. Other big problems include exposed and damage wiring and even completely open holes, allowing anything inside your home.

Restoring a damaged attic from intrusive wildlife requires extra attention to detail that most home contractors just don’t have experience in dealing with. Choosing a wildlife management service like Grade A Critter gives you peace of mind that your restoration is complete. We’re equipped to handle the ultra-important clean up service of your attic to prevent fungi & parasites from thriving and growing from any droppings or nestings the animal may have left behind.

Raccoon Faces in Attic Insulation

Nearly all wildlife commonly carries parasites such as Fleas and Ticks, and diseases like Rabies, Leptospirosis, and Roundworm just to name a few. Even leaving animal scat behind can be dangerous, as this is where many of the bacteria and diseases are found. When an animal leaves, his scent will remain and attract other wildlife. Rodents leave a pheromone scent that will attract other rodents.

If you hear noises in your attic, it’s extremely important that you find the cause before parts of your home are torn to shreds and contaminated, creating a huge problem.
