Aside from the obvious health concerns regarding their feces and urine; a rodent infestation can also be the cause of severe damage to your home as well.
Rodents will chew their way into a building and gnaw on timbers. Many residential fires have been attributed to rodents chewing on wires inside the walls. Every year thousands of dollars are spent cleaning and sanitizing areas where rodents have nested or harbored. Any way you look at it, rodents don’t belong in your home.
Closing open vents and filling gaps around plumbing can go a long way in helping to prevent a hungry rat from crawling into the house. While no building can ever be made 100% rodent proof, with a little creative maintenance and some attention to detail, together we can make your property more secure.
