“You’ll love what we’ve done to your place!”


Let’s take a look around.

Calm down. We specialize in raccoon damage, and your insurance pays for home restoration.

Got raccoons? There’s more to the story. Because as cute as they are, they leave behind damage to your home, including some 27 diseases and parasites.

If you just ignore them and hope they’ll go away, you’re mistaken.

Even re-insulation like new does nothing to eliminate the health dangers, to fix your home or stop new raccoons from entering. That’s why you need A-Plus


They’re a health hazard of significance.
Children and pets are particularly at risk.

Raccoons can carry tuberculosis and host thousands of common fleas.
According to the USDA, “Since free-roaming wildlife does not receive veterinary care, all wildlife species can carry diseases and parasites.

“Raccoons are known carriers of rabies, canine distemper, encephalitis, histoplasmosis, trypanosomiasis, coccidiosis, toxoplasmosis, tularemia, tuberculosis, listeriosis, leptospirosis, roundworms and mange.

“They are also infested with fleas, ticks, lice and mites – which are known transmitters of disease. Children and pets are particularly at risk.”

Offspring usually stay with the female for up to a year. As easy as it is for cats and dogs to get fleas, it’s far easier to infest raccoons. The fleas can hatch up to a year after the raccoons are gone; you can have an flea infestation when you least expect it. And remember the diseases they carry.

The next year, at breeding time, any other raccoons can follow the scent to your house. Multiple families can live there at any given time.

Who knows? You might become a popular vacation destination!

Raccoons can rip out soffits; their feces just pile up. Here, the raccoons gnawed right through the roof to get in. We repair ceilings, soffits, roofing and more. We evacuate the old insulation and re-insulate to today’s building standards.

“Care to share my diseases?”
“Fleas! Can't live with ’em. Can't live without ’em!”
“Smells just fine to me!”

Aren’t they cute?

Yes, until they bare their teeth.

Raccoons look like cats, wearing an adorable black mask, with a bushy, ringed tail. They’re actually related to the bear family – with a hand-like front paw and long, well-separated toes – giving them almost the facility of a monkey. And they are extremely strong. Killer, your rottweiler, doesn’t stand a chance.

Raccoons are attracted to urban areas by the easily accessible food, water and shelter. They’re climbers, capable of seizing and pushing or pulling objects with considerable force. And so, they break into your house.

Their diet is diverse. Raccoons eat eggs, poultry, insects, rodents, small livestock, birds, pet food and garbage. Females bring food into your house, for the whole raccoon family to eat. And they deposit it there.


Here’s how we work.

Give us a call, and we’ll inspect your home for damage. We go up on the roof, looking for the holes they gnawed. We check the soffits for sources of entry and exit.

Did they chew wires? We inspect the attic and make note of any nests, feces, urinary deposits and torn air conditioning ducts, which contaminate your living space.

We take pictures. And check your insurance to make sure you’re fully covered. Raccoons are always a health hazard.

We even deal with your insurance company directly, with your permission, and submit a proposal and negotiate with them. In most cases, it goes smoothly. On rare occasions, an insurance company does not want to cover the damage. However, for years, the Office of Insurance Commissioner, Tallahassee, has taken our side. They agree that the health risk is too great.

When you have raccoons, you don’t just have raccoons. Disease and parasites accompany them into your home, and must be eliminated, too.

This is how we protect your family’s health.

Capturing the raccoon is just the first step.

Their damage persists, unless you take remedial action.

When your house has been broken into by raccoons, you hear them, because things go bump in the night. Your first step is to call a trapper. Next, call us.

A-Plus Restorations restores your home to its A-plus condition, before the raccoons moved in and trashed the place.

Our personnel includes a former Fish and Wildlife law enforcement agent, a former trapper and building contractor; plus insurance negotiators. We’ll inspect your home thoroughly and work with your insurance company to assure that you get the full extent of coverage for raccoon damage.

As a licensed contractor, we’re experienced in home building and remodeling, and for years, in repairing animal damage.

We’ll close up all points of entry and exit. Remove the insulation, feces and urine. Disinfect the entire area, replace the insulation at up-to-date building code requirements. And treat the perimeter.

When we do the work, you needn’t leave your house. We’re precise, careful and thorough. And it takes just a few days to complete the job. It’ll be as though no one was there.

Your home will be free of raccoons and the contaminants they bring with them. And you’ll enjoy peace of mind, knowing you’ve protected your family and yourself.

Call us today for FREE inspection.
