Wild raccoons are capable of causing an extensive amount of damage and mess to a home or property. They are known to take shelter in residential and commercial areas, commonly invading attics, crawl spaces, roofs, vents, ducts, garages, sheds, porches, and more. They use these areas to protect themselves and their young from harsh weather and cold temperatures; as well as, for breeding grounds and feeding.
Once raccoons are occupying a particular area of a residential or commercial property, they immediately begin their destructive tendencies. For instance, raccoons can chew through wood beams and electrical wiring, rip down attic insulation, and saturate dry wall, sheet rock, ceilings, and other areas of a home with urine and feces.

There are several approaches a property owner can choose when it comes to cleaning up post-raccoon mess and debris. Raccoons can affect a broad area of a home or building; from structural damages to residual odors, and more. Depending on the degree of mess a raccoon implements, a person might require a carpet cleaner, landscaper, roof repair technician, general contractor for dry wall and insulation repairs, a handy man for electrical and home repairs, professional painters, and a cleanup or sanitation company for feces and odor removal.

Not only can they provide raccoon exclusion and removal, they can also facilitate repairs, restorations, and more. They easiest way to facilitate the cleaning and repairs needed for your recent raccoon invasion would be to hire each individual contractor and pay loads of money; or, simply use the raccoon removal company to remove raccoons, and clean up after them as well. Here are some examples of common raccoon cleanup services offered by licensed wildlife removal companies:
- Odor Removal

- Insulation Replacement

When wild raccoons have nested, burrowed, and hibernated in a home or building for an extended amount of time, the chances of structural damage is high. Dry wall is ripped, torn, and saturated with animal urine and droppings; while attic insulation, ceilings, and more are also saturated with urine and ripped away for nesting and playtime. On top of these damages, extreme structural damage is likely too. Porches, decks, roofs, and more have to be gutted or replaced at times; depending on the degree of damages. In other cases, restorations can take weeks or months to complete because of the extensiveness of harm and destruction.
