What is Rodent Proofing and Why it is Important for Homeowners Who Spot Rodent in their Home
Updated: Jan 3
Every homeowner strives to keep their home free of rodents and other harmful critters. Rodents such as mice and rats can be very sneaky and dangerous. These creatures may look harmless at first, but it is a well-known fact that rodents, like many other dangerous critters, carry with them many diseases and bacteria that can affect human health adversely.
Rodents spread diseases by contaminating food. However, diseases can also be contracted when humans come into contact with rodents and their droppings. Furthermore, rodents themselves can be a complete nuisance that not only cause unwanted disturbances in the home, but they can also cause extensive damage to your home that can be costly to repair.
As such, when you are dealing with a rodent infestation, rodent control and rodent proofing must be done immediately by a reliable rodent proofing company that you trust.
What exactly is rodent proofing?
Rodent proofing your home, office, apartment or farm is a process that consists of identifying and eliminating the conditions and the environment that makes it possible for rodents such as rats and mice to survive. Rodents can get into homes in all sorts of ways. For instance, they gnaw at walls and climb or swim up through your drainage system to get where they want to go.
Rodents tend to seek warm and dry conditions indoors such as in your attic or basement, which is where they build their nests and multiply rapidly. Therefore, Rodent proofing companies are charged with the responsibility of eliminating food, shelter, and water, needed by the rodents to survive comfortably.
Does rodent proofing involve attic cleaning?
As mentioned above, since rodents need warm and dry conditions in order to survive and breed, most Rodent proofing services also offer Attic cleaning services so as to completely exterminate the rodents and prevent them from coming back.
