Raccoon Crawl Space Damage Repair
Crawl spaces are a nice, warm, and dry nesting place for critters. While it may not seem like too much of an inconvenience for raccoons to make a home beneath a house, they can actually cause considerable damage, odors, and bacteria build-up.

Portland Raccoon Crawl Space Damage
Raccoons Destroy Insulation – They gather the insulation into piles, making it less effective. Raccoons chew on ducts and pull away areas where insulation has been tacked down. This creates drafts so insulation is not able to do its job.
Raccoons Chew through Electrical Wiring – This produces a fire hazard as well as costly damage. Chewing can also occur around the foundation of a home and damage anything wood or plastic.
Raccoons Urinate and Leave Droppings in Crawl Spaces – The urine seeps into the insulation and the surrounding area. Urine and droppings eventually create an unpleasant odor. As the temperature heats up in the summer months the smell becomes more pronounced. In some cases a raccoon will die and decompose inside a crawl space in Portland, also creating a terrible smell as well as a health threat.
Raccoons Attract Bacteria, Fleas, and Mites – They chew holes around the foundation, which increases access for smaller pests. Not only does this create a health threat to people in the house, it is also unhealthy for pets. Raccoons are also very aggressive and pose a threat to housepets.
