Taking care of a wildlife problem properly is very important for your biggest investment, which is your home. It’s important for you to hire a company that is working for your best interest. When on your property, you want proper and humane raccoon removal or squirrel removal services. We have seen too many problems involving roofers attempting wildlife removal services in Toronto. You want to rest assured that professionals have arrived to fix a problem and not cause a new one. You want to avoid people falling through your ceiling, not applying caulking to screws or trapping animals inside your attic etc.
Any wildlife issue inside an attic is generally destructive to a degree. Animals can do damage to your roof if they are blocked from their shelter or inside it. Which is why we discourage DIY (do it yourself) wildlife removal. And if you are handy enough to do it yourself, you should be aware that raccoons and squirrels are capable of chewing or damaging aluminum, wood, and plastic. The picture above is the result of roofers repairing an entry point without using one-way doors.
Trapped Animals After Roofing Repairs
If you have trapped animals in the attic, call for professional help immediately. Trapped animals will panic and cause damage in the attic in a desperate attempt to get out. First, the animal will chew or damage another area where it will be able to leave and re-enter your attic. In the worst case scenario, it will die inside your attic or between your walls. You will probably smell the animal, especially if it’s a raccoon. A raccoon is much bigger in size than a squirrel, so it would decay for a longer period of time. Don’t take chances, doing it right the first time will save you headache and unforeseen costs.
