Common Damages to Your Home and How to Fix Them

Many kinds of animal damage can happen to your furniture or carpet. The following is a list of damages and how to fix them.

Vomits and Excreta

Vomits and excreta are the most common damages created from animals. Like humans, animals need to also relieve themselves from time to time, and their instincts direct them to relieve themselves wherever they may be. What do you do when you meet such a mess around the home?


Like every mess, the first thing to do is to clear and clean the area immediately to prevent more absorption. Although some couches do not require abrasive cleaning, others may require professional help. 

Start by using a cleaner designed to eliminate animal stains and smells on furniture. Ensure you follow the guidelines and instructions written behind or underneath for effectiveness. If you find vomit or excreta in your home, and you’re unsure of what kind of animal left it behind, please call us at Creature Catchers right away.


Raccoons and squirrels may seem harmless, but they can cause a great deal of damage to homes in Massachusetts. These animals are known for rummaging through garbage and possibly eating fruit off your trees and raiding your gardens. The real monetary harm comes when they create nests in your attic. Raccoons and squirrels often chew through electrical cords, move insulation, gnaw on wooden support beams, and eat through your ceiling leading to numerous costly repairs. Not to mention, raccoons can carry rabies, a lethal disease carried in their saliva and transmitted through bites.


Creature Catchers professionals have dealt with the removal of raccoons and squirrels for years. Not only do we safely and effectively remove these animals from your attic, but we can repair the damages they’ve made to the roof, insulation, and more. Contact our team today to discover how we can be of assistance.

Gnawing, chewing, and scratching

Many New England animals have claws that help them function properly. However, these claws cause damage to furniture, walls, ceilings, flooring, and more. 


For clawed wooden furniture, you can apply restorative products like polishes that help disguise the scratches and add radiance to the floors. If the damages appear severe, professional help might be needed to repair the holes and deep scratches. Our team at Creature Catchers has plenty of animal damage repairing experience.
