Attics are commonly utilized by many species of wildlife in Tennessee. With fluffy insulation and shelter from predators, it’s easy to understand why these animals like to call attics home. Unfortunately for homeowners, this can cause numerous problems very quickly. Significant loss of efficiency with insulation will occur. Exposed wires will often be chewed on or pulled and contamination build-up is likely.
No matter the species, as animals run back and forth through your attic, the insulation is compacted down and likely destroyed. Blow-in insulation offers ideal nesting materials. Animals will move large amounts of insulation to create their perfect “bed.” As this insulation is disturbed, R-value decreases, which will cause heating and cooling costs to skyrocket.
Chewed wires are also a big concern. Squirrel and raccoons are notorious for pulling and chewing on exposed wires that run throughout attics. Eave lights and even inside plugs and lights are at risk. This is the most common cause of house fires in our state. When dealing with larger animals, such as raccoons or opossums, feces accumulation on top of the insulation is common. If left unaddressed, this can lead to drywall stains and unwanted smells. This type of contamination under your roof is a health hazard and should be properly removed.

We are fully equipped to handle clean-up services, blown-in or batted insulation removal and installations, as well as sanitation and deodorization.

When dealing with nuisance wildlife, removing the problem of animals is the first step. The second step is to repair ALL entry points and other vulnerable openings leading in to the attic or crawlspace. AWR technicians specialize in exclusion repairs of all sorts. We pride ourselves in the aesthetic appearance of our work.
Typical attic entry points for wildlife include gable vents, eave gaps, soffit/fascia openings,ridge caps, attic vents, and roof line openings. Common crawlspace entry points consist of breezeway vents, A/C unit flashing, foundation holes, and even holes dug under the foundation by wildlife. Once all openings are sealed, we treat the area with an enzymatic fog that neutralizes all animal scent. Much like a dog on a fire hydrant, all animals communicate by scent. It is imperative that your attic or crawlspace be rid of nesting, fecal build-up and animal scent. This is a key step to preventing future wildlife problems.
Middle Tennessee wildlife specialists, Active Wildlife Removal, is confident in our ability to provide professional wildlife removal and prevention. No wildlife issue is too big or too small. Give us a call today and rid your home of these varmint that can make sleeping and life in general a misery.
By nature, nocturnal animals are drawn to dark, cool places. Residential crawlspaces offer the perfect habitat for these animals. Once inside, the animals find useful resources such as floor insulation, vapor barrier, and HVAC lines, that when ripped, provide heat or cool air. To wildlife, this is a great discovery. To the homeowner, it can prove to be quite costly if ignored.
AWR specializes in restoring crawlspaces back to new. We understand how wildlife works, and the importance of proper clean-up. Our technicians are highly skilled in vapor barrier removal and installation, floor insulation services and sanitation and deodorization services.
