Nate was just here doing a monthly service and spent time giving me a status of activity and sharing knowledge. Everyone at this company is knowledgeable, professional and friendly. Hard to find this level of service any more, so it is so refreshing when you find a company like this!

Nathan was very professional. He observed and fixed my issues and even chased a bird around my attic that has been driving me insane. He also went around the property and got me quotes for various other issues that I've been having.

This is the second time I've had them remove birds from my house. They came out the same week I called and were extremely professional when they got here. I had starlings making a nest this time and Cottom's removed them without having to kill any.

Followup Review ***** Seven months past since Cottom's Wildlife Removal convinced squirrels and chipmunks to leave our home. Spring is finally here, our 92 year old Tudor home is as quiet as can be. Nate and Jason were methodical in their search for access points. They sealed all but one opening and provided a one way path for the homesteaders to leave. Today, the home repairs are not noticeable and the squirrels and chipmunks are in their own habitat. Thank you Nate, Jason and Cottom's Wildlife Removal.

Had an uninvited house guest (bat).Did some late night research and called Cottom's the following morning. Spoke with Jessica who was extremely helpful and set up appointment for them to come out and do an inspection unfortunately they had a pretty full schedule so I was a couple days out but Jessica indicated if there was a cancellation she would call me and get me on the schedule if it worked for me. They did have a cancellation and I was moved up to the next day. Alex and Haden came out to the house (very respectful of the house including wearing booties when inside doing the inspection) and did the inspection for potential entry points and did find a potential entry point and provided an estimate to eliminate the potential entry point. At this point not sure as to what I am going to do as it deals with the fireplace (outside) and I have another contractor coming out to do chimney cleaning and inspection. No pressure to say yes now and left me the proposal for consideration. Would not hesitate to contact them again for any type of of wildlife problem.

I received a call back within a half hour. Was scheduled for the inspection/plan. They showed up on time and then returned a couple days later like was discussed. No animals were harmed. I’m very happy with the results and will recommend you to others.

Why Choose Professional Raccoon Removal in Cleveland?

Cleveland Raccoon Removal FAQ

Is Raccoon Damage Covered by Homeowners Insurance?

One common question homeowners in Cleveland have is whether raccoon damage is covered by their insurance. The answer depends on your specific policy. Some homeowners insurance policies may cover raccoon damage, especially if it’s sudden and accidental. However, damage resulting from long-term infestations might not be covered. It’s essential to review your policy or consult with your insurance provider to understand your coverage.

What Does Raccoon Attic Cleanup Cost?

The cost of raccoon attic cleanup in Cleveland can vary based on several factors, including the extent of the infestation, the level of damage, and the size of the affected area. This varying cost includes removing contaminated insulation, cleaning and sanitizing the area, and repairing any damage caused by the raccoons. For an accurate estimate, it’s best to schedule an inspection with Cottom’s Wildlife Removal.

What Are The Signs of Raccoon Infestation?

Recognizing the signs of a raccoon infestation early can help prevent severe damage. Look out for:

  • Noises such as scratching, thumping, or chirping in the attic or walls
  • Torn shingles or soffits
  • Unusual droppings around your property
  • Tipped-over trash cans and scattered garbage
  • Footprints or muddy tracks around entry points

How quickly can you remove raccoons from my property?
