A customer from Matthews called one evening wondering how to get rid of squirrels from his attic. Since every squirrel removal situation is different, an inspection was scheduled for the following morning to assess their problem and to come up with a plane to get rid of squirrels from their home.
Get Rid of Squirrels From Matthews Home
During the exterior inspection, we found many available entrances. The customer had a large gable vent that was open and the squirrels had chewed to a hole in order to access the attic. The next area was a hard-to-find hole that was in the rain gutter and only seen from the ladder.
The interior attic inspection was concerning. This was due to the amount of electrical wires that had been chewed down to the copper wire. These wires were actually touching the wood rafters (as shown in the picture above). This is a serious situation which can lead to a devastating house fire. Also, large construction gaps were found (as shown in the picture below). We knew we needed to get rid of squirrels from this home as soon as possible.
Squirrel Damage & How We Solve The Problem
We first ensured that accesses were sealed to keep squirrels from re-entering the home. We then installed the “one way” door to allow any squirrels to leave. Our technicians waited four days to ensure that the squirrels were out of the attic. Our licensed electrician then returned to take care of the very dangerous squirrel electrical damage. Next, was the decontamination process. Our team cleaned, disinfected, deodorized and sanitized all areas where the squirrels had their “bathrooms”. Lastly, we fluffed the compacted insulation to bring it back up to code.
