Why Hire Rodent-Proofing Services?
Rodents, when left to their own devices can cause considerable property damage. In most instances of rat infestation homeowners will have to deal with broken pipes and chewed-up electrical wires, as well as compromised insulation, which spells a higher energy bill.
Rodents will also urinate and leave feces everywhere, which makes the attic a toxic and dangerous environment. If the damage is severe the insulation may be completely destroyed and a new one will have to take its place.
Having rodents living in your house poses many health hazards. Aside from bringing in diseases, they can trigger allergies and complicate respiratory problems such as asthma. The moment you suspect an infestation it’s recommended that you take care of it as soon as possible.
Rats, mice and similar pests carry with them the dreaded Hantavirus, which can cause HPS or Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome. Also, they carry tapeworms and ringworms that can get inside a human body and wreak havoc from the inside. Because these pests reproduce quickly a single rat entry can mean serious problems for you and your family.
Attempting a DIY should never be an option. The moment you notice rats and pests, immediately call a professional rodent proofing company who knows what to do to remove the creatures and restore your attic to its pre-infestation state.
Our staff can handle concerns such as removing rodent waste so as to eliminate potential respiratory concerns such as asthma and sinus inflammation. We can clean your attic so it will be free from contaminants and improve indoor air quality.
The most obvious sign that rats or mice have invaded your home is seeing their droppings anywhere in the house.
The problem with rodents is that they spread quickly and mate rapidly. One can lead to a few in just a week, then to a half dozen or more after two. A thorough inspection can determine just how many there are and the work that’s needed to eliminate the pests completely.
Rats normally make their way into your home via the attic. Inhabitants won’t usually notice it until the signs start to appear. Even a hole the size of a quarter can serve as an invitation to these pests, and these can form in the attic walls or insulation.
Rodents prefer attics because it’s warm and there’s usually nobody to disturb them. Once they make it their home they will leave droppings everywhere and chew through everything.
When you hear scurrying noises or scratching sounds originating in your attic, see gnaw marks on furniture or flooring and electrical wires, chances are that rodents have already invaded. If this is the case, the best and most efficient solution is to call up a reputable rodent proofing expert in your area.
