It’s important not to try and clean up after animals and rodents yourself because you could be exposing yourself to Hantavirus. Even though you might think it’s an easy job, it isn’t. Plus, if it’s not done right – there could be health and safety issues. If your attic or crawlspace has uninvited guests, you should contact a professional like Envirosmart Solution.
Besides chewing on cables and wiring, rats and rodents can also gnaw away at your walls, drywall, and structural supports. Rat prevention is a must. Think of these small pests like goats – they eat anything. Rats can chew through 2 x 4s, walls, aluminum, and concrete! They are very determined to get where they’re going.
Effective rodent sealing is the way to outsmart these pesky critters and make sure they get their meal someplace other than your attic or crawlspace.
Rodents love to gnaw on anything you can think of including cables, wires, insulation, and wood flooring. Once they’re in your home–watch out. In a short amount of time, they can wreak havoc. The solution is to keep them out in the first place with animal and rodent sealing, and especially mice sealing since mice can crawl through the smallest openings.
So if you haven’t had proper attic sealing and live in the Puget Sound area, you will have uninvited guests.
If you live in Washington, you’re aware of the ongoing problems with rats. One rat can create 50 droppings in just one day – just think about what that can do to your insulation. And once rats have made their nests in your insulation, it’s completely contaminated with waste and urine.
At that point, you will need to have a professional insulation services contractor remove the old insulation and seal up the space to keep animals out. Once that’s done, they can install nice, clean insulation that’s energy-efficient too.
The most effective way to prevent rodents and animals from entering your home is to have it professionally sealed. You have to make sure that any holes or gaps and holes in your attic and crawlspace are completely sealed. Crafty mice get into tiny openings as small as 1/4 inch!
