Frequently Asked Questions
How do you know if an animal is in your roof?
Generally if you hear noises in the attic consistently for more than a couple of day’s, it is safe to assume there is something up there.
How do you know what type of animal it is?
Upon our roof inspection we can determine what type of animal it is by size of the entry point the animal has made, the hair that rubs off their body upon entering and exiting the entry point. Finally the smell of each animal is very distinct to our staff.
How do you know how many animals there are inside?
With our one way door techniques it really does not matter how many are inside. We just make 100% certain that all animals can and are safely vacated.
How do you get the animals out?
Generally animals are removed by one way door systems.
What is a one way door?
It is a spring loaded door which permits the animals to open the door with there body. It than shuts automatically behind them. The door from the outside can no longer be opened.
What if there is more than one animal inside?
The beauty of a one way door is that it does not permit a certain number. It is very much like an emergency exit door that can continuesly be opened from inside but not vise versa.,
How long does an average job take?
2-3 days. Generally a standard job requires two trips. One to set this one way door system on and a secondary trip 48 hours later to remove the door and repair the area.
What if I have animals around the house without a den site?
We always have an alternative solution. One option is a trapping program.
How do you get rid of skunk smell?
The number one solution is time. Depending on the time of year and what material actually has been sprayed will determine approximately the duration of the smell. We also have products that you may want to try. Check our product section.
What if I have babies in my attic?
If one has babies, we must be able to access the babies physically. Usually this means going into an attic and retrieving them by hand. We remove and place them in an insulated box. We place the box near the entry point. We proceed to push the mother raccoon out by various methods, including the one way door. She will then take each of her babies one by one to another location, other than your home. The mother raccoon will not feel safe in that area any more.
