Raccoon Poop Removal
Our feces removal services follow a three-step process. First, we disinfect the area. Then, we remove the feces manually and disinfect again. Finally, we steam clean the area to destroy any surviving roundworm eggs. This process removes germs, parasites, and odours.
We carefully remove all organic matter and take it away for safe disposal. No raccoon poop is left behind.
We use hospital grade commercial disinfectants to kill all pathogens in the area that the raccoons used to defecate.
We use high heat in the form of steam to treat the affected area. The high heat destroys all roundworm spores in the area.

Raccoon Poop is Dangerous
Raccoons are the definitive hosts of a dangerous parasite called Baylisascris procyonis, also known as raccoon roundworm. This roundworm lives inside the animals’ intestines and passes its eggs in their feces. Eggs then permeate the soil or become airborne when the feces dry. Roundworm does not cause much harm to raccoons but is lethal to humans and pets. Accidentally touching a contaminated surface or inhaling eggs may result in serious illness. Raccoon poop should therefore be removed immediately and treated for in a way that kills germs and roundworm.

Raccoons Don't Flush
Raccoons tend to defecate in the same spots, creating piles of feces known as latrines. Locations are chosen for hygienic purposes, away from the animals’ dens. Latrines are commonly found in or under decks, in sheds, on rooftops, and in attics. They may also be found on the lawn, in the garden, or on a fence. As long as they feel safe, they will continue to use the same locations. This makes latrines get worse with time. Raccoon latrines smell awful and contain harmful diseases and parasites.

What Does Raccoon Poop Look Like?
Raccoon poop looks a lot like dog poop. Droppings are light to dark brown, 2 to 3 inches in length, and blunt at the ends. The only differentiator between a raccoon’s droppings and a dog’s is the presence of undigested berries within the poop. Raccoon poop is also usually found in piles, known as latrines. Latrines are usually found on raised surfaces, such as the top of a roof or the base of a tree. Latrines may also be found in attics.

How do you clean it up?
We remove raccoon feces with commercial-grade disinfectant and steam cleaners. First, the feces are physically removed and bagged.

Our technicians wear protective equipment to ensure that they do not touch or inhale any feces.

Our raccoon removal treatments are totally safe. We use hospital-grade disinfectants that are safe to use in a multitude of environments, including daycare centres and retirement homes. The surfaces we clean are safe for you to use as soon as the disinfectant has dried.
