Hearing scratches and noises coming from the ceiling? Typically, the signs of wildlife on your property are not obvious until the problem has gone on for some time. Scratching, chirps from the attic and damaged home building materials are a few obvious signs of an infestation.
However, a Dallas raccoon removal specialist can identify less obvious signs of an infestation, such as raccoon tracks or trails, during an inspection so that wildlife problems are eliminated before the damage is significant.
Why Raccoons can be Dangerous
Raccoons have found it easy to gain access into attics by tearing apart roofing and siding at split level roof points. Masters Services traps many raccoons in the attic that have caused roofing damage in Dallas. Here is a picture of what you might expect top look for if you think you might have a raccoon in your attic.

A raccoon removal company in Dallas like Masters Services has a variety of techniques homeowners can use for preventive measures. The first is to properly secure outside garbage cans. One way to do this may be to build a small enclosure or take them into a garage. Another measure is to put away any pet food left out in the open.
A raccoon in the attic can make a big mess along with causing expensive repairs if not dealt with immediately. Call Masters Services to handle all your wildlife removal needs.
