Restoring an attic can also assist in a clean and more energy efficient home/building.
Rats & Squirrels
Rats and squirrels can do significant damage to an attic. They destroy air conditioning duct work, rip apart electrical wiring, gnaw on plumbing, and ruin dry wall. Rats, mice, and squirrels need to chew in order to file their teeth. If they do not, their teeth grow inward obstructing the ability to eat, and eventually starve. These rodents will leave feces and urine throughout insulation, producing the terrible scent that is infamous with rats and squirrels.
Opossums, Ducks, Birds
These critters will most likely not cause physical damage to drywall, or duct work, but they will ruin insulation with their feces. They will nest, and defecate throughout their hideaway, which is extremely dangerous to any inhabitants of the building because their urine and feces can cause great health risks and respiratory issues.
(The most common duck that one will see in an attic are the Muscovy duck.)
Raccoons will normally nest in the insulation. Their nesting is common with cats; they will nest in a specific area, and urinate and defecate in another. The damage in your attic can be extensive due to contamination; considering their feces can carry a type of roundworm that is fatal. More than likely when raccoons nest in an attic it will always require restoration.
Guano (feces) from bats is extremely dangerous. The disease they carry, histoplasmosis, can release fungal spores into the air, endangering any inhabitants of the infested establishment, and can lead to chronic illness and even death. It is common that once bats are in an attic, they can find their way into the home or building. They do not cause physical damage to an attic, the main concern are the health risks that can arise.
