Getting rid of a rat or mouse can help you prevent household issues and avoid serious health risks, ultimately saving your home.
Here are the top 5 reasons why removing rodents can save your home:
Safe Fence Installation
Professional removal of rodents involves a specialist inspecting the fence around the house. They look for gaps, holes, or cracks that mice and rats can use as entrances. Whether you use a professional team or do it yourself, it’s important to keep your home airtight to prevent future rodent infestations.
Attic Insulation is an important part of the attic and can be very expensive. You can save on replacement costs by sending rodents like the black rat to try to destroy them.
Your attic space has a key role your in your home operation regulating the heating and cooling. A house mouse will invade the attic seeking food, water, and shelter. When your attic becomes compromised by house mice, your energy efficiency becomes compromised too. You`ll see a major spike in your monthly energy bill!
Cold weather will drive house mice into the garage and even into your vehicles! They’ll try nesting in your leather seating and getting warm in your engine.
In North America and many parts of the world, mice and rats are more than just annoying, they pose a serious health hazard. They carry highly harmful bacteria and infectious pathogens.
These are some of the dangerous diseases carried by rodents:
- bubonic plague
- Rat-bite fever
- Hunter virus
Rodents removal includes not only rodent recovery, but also disinfection for further prevention. Decontamination and disinfection of your home will help prevent reinfection by rodents.
Rodents often spread the disease by accessing food sources in the kitchen and pantry. Rats easily chew plastic bags and paperboard, so you need to use sturdy Tupperware to store groceries. Be careful, contaminated food can cause more than just food poisoning!
