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. Restoring a wildlife inhabited attic requires extra attention to details that a lot of regular restoration companies lack. Let AWR professionally clean and protect your home TODAY!
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. We also remove dead animals from underneath homes and buildings. We leave “no stone unturned” and GUARANTEE that each crawlspace will be contaminant-free and inaccessible to any future wildlife.

Attic And Crawl Space Restoration
Active Wildlife Removal is here to help you throughout the entirety of the removal process. Many wildlife issues result in harm being done to your attic or crawl space. This is due to the attic and crawl space being the most popular destination for animals to live in. Luckily for you, Active Wildlife Removal is happy to restore your attic or crawl space to its original state.
Why Restoring Spaces Is Crucial
Restoring attics and crawl spaces goes much further than just making the space look better. Restoring spaces also involves cleaning out any pathogens that could potentially cause diseases. This is important because, well, your health is important! Not restoring attics can allow these viruses and diseases to continue to multiply and eventually spread throughout your household. This is going to create a multitude of issues for you, of course.
Not only that but restoring attics and crawl spaces will help you get rid of that ‘wildlife’ smell that comes along with any infestation. This smell is the result of waste and bacteria that are left behind by the animal. When we restore an attic or crawl space we always make sure that this smell is eliminated. We’ll also clean out any of the leftover nesting materials from the animal to make the space look nice and clean and decrease the chances that the animal returns. This will also help make your home look nicer in general.
How We Restore Attics And Crawl Spaces
Restoring storage spaces consists of a few steps. The first step is, of course, inspecting the area that the animal lived in. We will see what damage the animal caused and what we need to do to clean the area. We will make sure that there are no other animals present. We will also ensure that there is no sign of any offspring that could’ve hidden during the removal process. Once we’ve determined how much cleaning needs to be done it can be broken down into a few steps.
The first step of the restoration process is to clean up the actual remnants of the nest. This also involves cleaning up any other debris and the droppings left behind from the animal. This helps us do a deeper inspection as to how much damage was caused by the animal and what other steps need to be taken. We’ll also remove the insulation that lines the walls to ensure that there are no animal carcasses or any other damage that was hidden under the insulation.
After that, the main cleaning process will begin. It starts by using a powerful vacuum to pick up any remaining droppings or nesting materials left behind by the animal. We will then begin the first disinfectant spray. This involves going over the area with a general disinfectant to kill any bacteria that might be present and ensure that no diseases can be spread through the air. We will then sterilize the area and put in new insulation. This ensures that the entirety of the area is clean and that there is no other potential for the spread of viruses or diseases. This will also rid you of the ‘wildlife’ smell that’s so common in infestation cases.
Our services will always provide you with the best quality at the most affordable price. If you find yourself with any animal issues that you need to be taken care of, call Active Wildlife Removal today!
