Usually, we expect insects and rodents to stay inside crawlspaces and make sure to keep them sealed and clean. Although attics are way above the ground, the distance doesn’t stop rodents from seeking shelter there. They can easily hop and climb through the vents and invade attics.
Most homeowners don’t do regular attic cleaning or visit it only once a year, making it the perfect home for rodents and insects. When they take steps to clean it, it’s already too late, and rodents have successfully infested the space.
Rodent-proofing your home is the most practical way to keep the rodents out. Here’s why you must consider getting this service.
Rodents Carry Diseases
Do you know that mice and rats carry dangerous diseases like hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome, Lass fever, rat-bike fever, hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, etc.? They also carry mites and ticks that transmit diseases. Rodent infestation can make your family and pets sick, so it’s best to keep them away from your house.
Rodents Droppings are Unhygienic and Dangerous
Rodent droppings or saliva are disgusting and dangerous for your family’s health. When dried, these droppings emit airborne particles that can be inhaled, making your family sick. These particles can also contaminate exposed food and spread diseases and infections.
From plastic to wood, mice and rats can chew through anything. This causes structural damage to your house’s structure and furniture. Their teeth never stop growing, and they must chew on hard surfaces. If they chew any electrical wires, it can cause electrical fires.
How Rodent Proofing Works
Our experts at Pure Eco Inc. start the process with an inspection to discover the possible rodent entry points in the attic, crawlspaces, etc. If you have any existing rodents, we set traps to get rid of them and identify the damage done to your home.
For rodent proofing, we seal off all the entry points with a foam sealant because rodents can chew through the tiniest hole or crack in your attic. Our experts also put metal screening as a backup to prevent them from chewing (in case they chew through the foam). We will ensure that all the areas, including pipes and drains, are sealed, so there’s no way for rats and mice to enter the home.
Whether you have rodents in your home or not, our services can help prevent their infestation. We also offer attic insulation Westlake Village, Los Angeles, and Santa Monica. Reach out to us for appointments and pricing details.
