An unhygienic home is dangerous. Why live in a rodent-infested household when you can call Air Quality Express? Rodents are known to carry different types of diseases. Sitting on this problem not only endangers you, but your family as well. Do you hear strange noises like scratching in your attic? Did you inspect it only to find many droppings infesting your attic space? Excrement from rodents carry contaminants which spread through the air, which can potentially harm you in the long run.
Rodents can find their way into your home through any opening. For example, rats and mice can fit through cracks or holes the size of a quarter. They can also easily tear through or chew any fabric, plastic, or organic material in your attic. Due to their relentless nature, it is not a good idea to keep any items containing these materials such as clothes or cardboard boxes in your attic.
Steps to Proofing the Attic
Deterring rodents is a necessity for any homeowner. Keep in mind, these pests chew through electrical wires and tamper with insulation in your home, causing multiple issues. It is best to get on top of this issue as soon as possible. The last thing you want is a part of your household not to function properly. If not dealt with immediately, these rodents can cause damages that may require an electrician or home remodeling.
We here at Air Quality Express are available even before things get to that point. Our professionals take preventative measures before a small situation becomes erratic. For instance, a combination of steel wool, caulking, and chicken wire or metal mesh are used to prevent pests from entering problematic spots. Steel wool is stuffed inside of a hole to prevent rodents from entering and biting through the caulk. If none of these solutions do the trick, then we implement a metal screen barrier to prevent entry.
Outside influences also contribute to rodent infestation. If you see a spot where rodents can easily access, you can also take steps in altering the place, preventing them from entering. Trees can also grow to the point where branches hover over your rooftop. It would be a good idea to trim tree branches to limit the ways rodents can enter your home, primarily through your attic. Your attic is probably one of the least visited places in your household since it is typically used for extra storage. Take a peek now and again! If you think it needs more in-depth inspection, Air Quality Express is here for you!
