Assessment and Estimate
Our goal is simple!
We figure out how the animals are getting in, make sure they are out, and ensure they will not get back in.
First we will talk with you by phone to get a few details and schedule an assessment.
Once the on-site assessment is scheduled it will include an investigation of potential entry points. The assessment usually takes about an hour and will help us determine what animals are there,
how they are getting in, and what damage has been done.
Our investigation may include the following areas:
attic, crawl space, basement, garage, roof, chimney, siding, vents, pipes, ducts,
the outside periphery of the structure and relevant interior rooms of the home.
The assessment can also help us to identify any vulnerable or predisposed areas that may become a problem in the future. This is an added benefit which provides you with some preventative alternatives.
Through the findings of the assessment, we will determine the BEST solution for your current wildlife problem and provide you with a detailed summary and estimated cost that covers exclusion, repair, and remediation work.
* Note: While checking various areas of the structure we often find water damage, leaks, rot, termites, and plumbing or electrical issues that may need to be addressed separately.
Any work outside of our capabilities will need to be referred to other professionals.
Upon approval of the assessment & estimate work will be scheduled as soon as possible.
Each Situation Is Unique!
Some jobs are simple and others more complex. As a result, completion time and pricing varies.
Some jobs require simple exclusion work and minor repairs, while others require intricate exclusion methods
and significant repairs. Either way you can rely on Humane Homes NC to provide you with
a high quality and effective solution to your wildlife woes.
Exclusion And Repair
Did you know there are multiple ways that wildlife can get into your home or business?
A few examples are gable vents, crawl space vents and doors, pipes and conduits, chimneys, roofs, and eaves.
Bats love to hang on the inside of gable vents and squirrels find them quite easy to gnaw through.
Mice, rats and birds can easily find a way into your attic through holes and gaps throughout the building.
Crawlspaces are a highly susceptible entry point for various wildlife.
And, unfortunately, some birds and squirrels love to nest in chimneys.
We provide humane exclusion techniques so these creatures are NOT harmed upon their departure.
Once out, our methods for permanent exclusion are highly effective.
Call us if you have wildlife who has taken up residence in your home. We can help!

Once we have concluded that all the animals are OUT, and all the repair work is done, we will proceed with cleaning, sanitizing and restoring the affected areas. When wildlife decides to make your home it's home they can leave behind quite a messy mess! Urine, droppings, and nesting material are left behind and the area can be troubled by unpleasant odor. Our non-toxic, environmentally safe remediation process will remedy all of your concerns around this. We adhere to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines.
We guarantee animals will not get in through areas we have fixed.
We use top-notch materials and provide excellent craftsmanship in our reparative processes.
All exclusion systems and repairs are guaranteed for 5 years.
Preventative Wildlife Assessments
Are you buying or selling a home? Are you a realtor or property manager?
Did you know home inspections may not include information about how animals could get into the home?
We do preventative assessments for buyers or sellers to determine if animals are present.
We also offer our Preventative Wildlife Assessment service as a monitoring program to detect animal activity
as early as possible. This could save you thousands of dollars in future repairs due to damage some animals
may cause. The preventative assessment can be helpful for any home or dwelling, and especially useful
if there has been a history of wildlife activity in the past.
All solutions are humane and non-harming. Poisons and kill traps are NEVER used! No euthanasia.
