What Type of Property Damage Can Squirrels Cause?

Similar to beavers, a squirrel’s teeth will grow for their entire life. To maintain their teeth, they will constantly chew and gnaw to keep them short. Consequently, this is one of the reason why it is very dangerous for squirrels to inhabit your home. They will chew on wood and electrical wires, which can lead to major property damage and even house fires. The other major reason to remove squirrels is the mess they can make in your attic. For example, they will deposit nesting material, feces and urine which will contaminate your attic insulation.

Exterior Damage

There are three main reasons why squirrels want to come into your home. First, they want to find a safe area to nest and give birth. Second, they need to be warm for the winter months. Lastly, the lure off the smell of previous animals which makes your home a potential safe haven. Hence, squirrel exterior damage may include chew holes through eaves, soffits, gutters, trim, construction gaps or other weak areas to gain access into your home or business. This behavior can cause extensive property damage to the fascia and roof area of your home. In addition, these holes could lead to server water damage in the form of ceiling damage and mold growth. That is to say, that rain will work its’ way inside the accesses.

Electrical Damage

It is important to note that squirrels have a instinctive need to chew. This is a threatening situation when a squirrel is in your home because they gnaw on wires in your attic which can cause squirrel electrical damage. They like to use the plastic covering for the wires to create a nest for their young. First, this can lead to lighting issues, such as flickering lights. Next, it can also create HVAC failure, which is very expensive to fix. Lastly, when squirrels gnaw on wires, it increases your risk of electrical fires. Squirrels are to blame for about 30,000 house fires each year! Most notably, if squirrels are not removed, you are putting your family at risk.

Insulation Damage

Squirrel insulation damage is a situation in which you should be aware of the consequences. Squirrels have babies twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. Attics are a favorite place for squirrels to build their nests. However, squirrels cause damage to attic insulation. They do so by creating a bathroom area in your insulation, which can ruin it and have potential health effects on your family. For example, squirrel droppings can contain common diseases, such as Salmonella and Leptospirosis. They also stamp down insulation overtime, which can reduce your insulations’ “R-factor”. When these two events happen, it creates numerous issues. First, it increases your heating and cooling costs. Second, you may need to add to the cost of your repair to replace your insulation. Lastly, you have to make repairs to your sheetrock ceiling, which can be costly and time consuming.

If you do not stop the entry of squirrels in your attic, then they WILL return each season. Protect your family and your investment by calling 888-391-3330 or schedule an inspection inspection with Varmint Gone today!

How Do You Get Rid of Squirrels?

Have you seen squirrels run through your gutters? Do you hear scratching or scurrying noises in the ceiling or walls? Have you seen chew holes in the soffit, siding, gutter or trim of your home? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, it is very likely that you have squirrels in the attic of your home. To remove squirrels from your attic can be a tricky job, it is best left to a professional.

Squirrel Removal

When you realize that you have a squirrel issue, then you need to find a company who can remove the squirrels humanely, preferably. You also would like to permanently keep the squirrels out of your home. Comparing the different methods and techniques of different companies can be tedious and time-consuming. So what is the best way to remove squirrels and keep the out of your home?

The One-Way Door System is the best way to remove squirrels for a number of reasons. First, it is humane, or it will not harm the squirrel. Second, this method ensures that all of the squirrels, whether there is just one or five, will be gone in 2-3 days. All of the squirrels will have to leave through the One-Way Door System to get food and water. The squirrels will not be able to re-enter the home due to the one way door system design.

To ensure that the squirrels can’t re-enter the home, you need to seal all other possible entry points. Sealing just the current access hole is never a good idea! The squirrels will just scurry down your roofline until they find another way to get back into your home. By sealing all the potential access points, the squirrels will move on to a home they can easily access, leaving you permanently squirrel-free. That being said, you should only hire a company who spends the time to meticulously seal your home so your squirrel problem is done right the first time.

Squirrel Decontamination

The longer the squirrels have been inhabiting your attic, the larger the mess they have created. The decontamination process removes squirrel nesting material, feces and urine from your attic. The technician will also exterminate any fleas, disinfect the attic area from mold spores and repair electrical damage. Lastly, the technician will fluff the insulation to its’ original condition. If squirrels have severely contaminated your current insulation, you may need to consider adding new blow-in insulation to improve the R factor or your home.

Homeowners Insurance

Generally, rodent damage and removal aren’t covered by most homeowners insurance policies. Infestations and the damage that results from squirrels are usually considered matters of home maintenance. Unfortunately, this usually leaves the squirrel exclusion and squirrel damage repairs to the homeowner to pay for out-of-pocket.

However, your policy could help pay for repairs if squirrels entered the home through physical damage that’s covered under your homeowners insurance. In other words, they might pay for the storm damage repairs, but not the rest of the exclusion project. It is helpful to know what your homeowners policy will and will not cover before a technician comes to your home.

Not all companies that provide squirrel removal services are equal! Place your home in the hands of a squirrel removal specialist that can do your job right, call Varmint Gone at 888-391-3330 or schedule an inspection online.
