For cross ventilation, use an exhaust fan or if it is easy and possible. Leave the cleaning area immediately until the airing out period is accomplished.
  • After the venting is accomplished if there is a possibility to contaminate the ventilation inlets or outlets in the space during the cleaning, seal these inlets and outlets before cleaning starts.

I had an issue in my home that I couldn’t figure out other than knowing there was some sort of raccoon removal in my attic. I called Wildlife Pro on a recommendation from a friend. Steve came on the same day and during his inspection he took the most detailed video to show me everything he was looking at and why. I was honestly shocked to see him up there and to see the quality of the after video he sent me as well. Full accountability from this company and they have my full support as a return customer if need be or my recommendation to someone else.
