3 ways racoons can damage your home

If you have racoons in your house, you will probably need to hire contractors like us to repair your insulation and walls. Here are three of the most common ways racoons can damage your home:

  1. They tear holes in your walls. Racoons are surprisingly strong for their size, and they can tear holes in your vinyl siding if they want to get out.
  2. They tear up your air ducts. If you hear scampering noises and your heating or air conditioning has stopped working, you probably have some uninvited guests in your attic.
  3. They leave droppings in your attic. Their droppings contain parasites and diseases that can be harmful to humans.

Don’t’ wait – contact HART Animal Control today to repair your racoon damage.
