Atlanta Animal Damage Repair and Animal-Proofing

We love animals. We really do. We don't mind sharing our natural world with wildlife.

But we draw the line when it comes to sharing our homes with them. They have their habitat, and we have ours.

There are very good reasons to keep wild animals out of your home. When wild critters get inside houses or other buildings, they make a big mess and do a lot of damage. They don't hesitate to make unauthorized modifications, such as gnawing on holes to make them bigger; and they don't mind using your whole attic as a latrine.

Animal damage to homes can also create water leaks that can cause additional damage that is very expensive to repair. Animals like mice, rats, and squirrels also create fire hazards by gnawing on electrical wires, and almost any animal that gets into your attic can cost you money in energy dollars and having to replace the insulation by tearing up, flattening out, or contaminating the insulation with their urine and feces.

The single best way to prevent animal damage is to make sure the animals don't get in in the first place by structurally sealing them out of your home. In our business, we call this "animal exclusion" or "wildlife exclusion." Most other folks just refer to it as "animal-proofing." By any name, we do a whole lot of it. We're North Georgia's leader in protecting homes and other buildings against wildlife. We have animal-proofed thousands of homes, offices, businesses, churches, hospitals, and even airports throughout the Metro Atlanta area.

The Difference Between Animal Damage Repair and Animal Exclusion

Rid-A-Critter has the resources to handle any animal-proofing or damage-repair job.

There are a lot of people who can repair the damage done by animals that got into your home. The problem is that most of them don't do a very good job of it.

Handymen, carpenters, and even homeowners can scab a piece of plywood on to a roof and nails some shingles on it, and it may turn out looking perfectly fine. The problem is that few handymen, carpenters, or homeowners understand wild animals' behavior and capabilities well-enough to keep new animals from getting in and damaging the house all over again. Carpenters know how to make a house structurally sound, and roofers know how to keep the water out; but animal exclusion is an additional, highly-specialized skill set with its own tricks of the trade that take years to learn. You have to be able to think like the critters you're trying to seal out, always looking at things from their point of view, to find -- and close off -- every possible hole, crack, or gap that they might use to get inside.

Another thing that sets Rid-A-Critter apart is that we can do a complete job, from start to finish. We trap and remove the animals, repair the damage, seal the house so no new animals can get in, clean up the mess the animals left behind (including cleaning up their urine, droppings, and other filth) and cart it away, replace contaminated insulation, if needed, and perform whatever odor control is necessary to make your house fresh-smelling again.

We do it all, from start to finish, so you don't have to.

That's why thousands of consumers throughout Georgia, including the Atlanta Braves' own Ryan Klesko, have chosen Rid-A-Critter to take care of his problems with a whole assortment of animals. We hope you will, too.
