If you’ve recently had squirrels in the attic of your home, you may be wondering if you should get attic restoration. After all, the squirrels were removed, right? Well, not quite. When squirrels invade your attic, they cause damage to your home that needs to be fixed immediately. Additionally, they leave behind feces, urine, and microorganisms that can cause harmful disease. At Animal Remover, we understand the importance of restoring your attic after a squirrel infestation. If you’ve recently had squirrels in the attic of your home, here are some reasons why you should look into attic restoration.

Squirrels in the Attic Leave Behind Feces and Urine

After a squirrel infestation, it is important to safely remove any feces or urine the squirrels left behind. If the squirrel droppings are not properly dealt with, they can spread bacterial and viral infections, such as salmonellosis, that can harm you and your family. To minimize the spread of these diseases, we recommend that you do not remove the squirrel droppings yourself. Instead, hire a professional attic restoration service, such as Animal Remover, who is equipped with the proper gear and equipment.

Squirrels in the Attic Damage Insulation

The longer you have squirrels in the attic, the more damage is done to your insulation. As squirrels run along your insulation, they compress it and beat it down. Over time, this compression decreases the R-value, or the effectiveness of your insulation, which increases your heating and cooling costs. During the attic restoration process, Animal Remover will remove and replace any insulation damaged by squirrels in the attic, either by hand or with large, insulation removal vacuums. After your damaged insulation is replaced, your heating and cooling costs should return to normal.

Squirrels Leave Behind Disease-Causing Microorganisms

Even if the squirrels are effectively removed, they can still leave behind dangerous microorganisms and bacteria that can damage your health. To effectively remove these microorganisms, your attic must be disinfected during the attic restoration process. At Animal Remover, we use an atomizer to spray disinfectant and fully sanitize your attic.
