Types of Damage Caused by Raccoons

If you have raccoons living in your home’s attic, chances are they have caused damage to the interior and exterior of your home, where they can enter and exit the property. The team of animal control specialists at Tanuki Wildlife Control have the training to quickly identify these common signs of a raccoon infestation and make the necessary steps to capture and remove it. If left unchecked, not only will the raccoons keep you up at night scurrying around in your attic, they could do thousands of dollars worth of damage to your home.

Torn Insulation

Raccoons love using torn insulation as their nest. Whether they're raising a litter of babies or on their own, insulation is the perfect material for them. Unfortunately, for homeowners, once the insulation has been torn and trampled on, it will begin to lose its R-rating. Not only will your home's energy costs rise, but you'll also need to pay to replace it.

Damage to Wood

Raccoons will chew on just about anything on their quest to find food, including wood. Wood is a sturdy material used in almost all home construction. However, if it's damaged, it can compromise the structural integrity of your home and lead to an expensive repair bill.

Chewed Electrical

Damage to your home's electrical wires is not only inconvenient but can create a significant fire hazard as well. Raccoons often chew on electrical wires to gather materials to make their nests.

Destroyed Air Ducts

Raccoons are also known for tearing apart air ducts, whether for nesting materials or simply for fun. Regardless of the reason, the result is still the same for many homeowners; expensive repair and energy costs. Protect your home's heating and cooling system from raccoons.

Health Concerns

Raccoons carry diseases, and their uncleanliness can lead to insect and cockroach infestations in your home. Not only that, their waste can lead to illness in members of your family. Leave cleaning up raccoon waste to a professional company to ensure proper removal.
