Cute and fuzzy until...
Squirrels in the attic can be a big problem. While most squirrels do not carry serious diseases,
squirrels can actually make you sick indirectly. Getting rid of squirrels in the attic and other
areas of the home is sometimes difficult but it must be done to insure the safety of your
health and your home.
A squirrel comes into the attic typically through the eaves and burrows through the walls, chewing through wood and insulation. Many older homes have been insulated with asbestos insulation. Asbestos insulation that is damaged will release asbestos fibers into the air causing harmful dust.
Squirrels chew through wood, wires, insulation and more. Chewing through wires has a potential to cause house fires. Squirrels can chew holes through the eaves of your home creating the potential for water damage which can promote an environment that may cause mold or black mold to get into the home. Black mold is extremely dangerous and difficult to remove without a professional... the list is long of the potential problems to your health and budget.
How do you get rid of squirrels?
All access into the attic has to be repaired and exclusion methods inplemented so that the squirrels cannot get back into the attic. Once entry has been made they will try to return.
