Are there any rats, mice, or other rodents in your Tampa home? Obviously, you want these dirty intruders out of your house. No one wants to turn a corner and see a rat appear or the damage that they leave behind. Rat removal is a good idea for more than just the obvious reasons. Getting rid of a rat or mouse can help you prevent future household issues and avoid any serious health risks.
Here are the top 15 reasons why removing a rat, mouse, or other rodents can protect your home, family, and pets:
When a professional rodent removal expert inspects the outside perimeter of your home, they will look for any hole, crack, or crevice that rats and mice could use as an entry point. It is crucial that you keep your home sealed up tight to prevent rodent infestations from happening in the future.
One of the significant damages a rodent can cause is chewing up your home’s electrical wiring, which can cause electrical fires. Rodent’s teeth are always growing, and they constantly gnaw. Secure your home from rats, mice, and other rodents that chew, and you will reduce your risk of electrical fires.
Rodents contaminate food and spread disease, so they cannot safely coexist with children and pets. A dog or cat’s natural instinct may be to hunt down and kill the rodent, but in the process, your pet could pick up harmful bacteria. Eco-friendly rodent control services are a must for homes with children and furry loved ones. A child could easily be hurt by a trap set for a rodent if they come upon it and become curious.
Attic insulation can be expensive and is an integral part of your attic space. By removing rats, mice, and other rodents, you will save yourself the cost of replacing your attic’s insulation from rodents living in the area.
Your attic helps to regulate the heating and cooling of your entire home. A rodent will invade the attic while seeking food, water, and shelter, especially during the winter or summer months of extreme weather. Your energy efficiency can be compromised when your attic becomes compromised by rodents. You can see a significant increase in your monthly energy bill.
Rats and mice are not just a nuisance, but they are a serious health risk because they carry harmful bacteria and contagious pathogens. These are some of the dangerous diseases carried by rodents:
Removing your rodents goes beyond just getting the rodents out. It also includes sanitization for further prevention. Sanitizing and decontamination will help keep rodent infestations from reoccurring.
Rodents often spread disease is by gaining access to your food sources in the kitchen and pantry. It would be best if you used sturdy storage containers like Tupperware to store food because Norway rats will gnaw through plastic bags and cardboard easily. Contaminated food can cause more than just food poisoning!
Rats and mice are notorious for nesting in hard to reach places, including inside walls and in ductwork! You will smell a foul odor that becomes carried through the ductwork and spread all throughout your home if a rodent is in your walls or ductwork, especially if one dies.
Rats and mice find a way into your car in the garage during colder weather to stay warm. They will even nest in your vehicle’s leather seating and get warm in your engine.
Refrigerators, ovens, entertainment centers, and more can all be destroyed by rodent droppings or gnawing! The wiring can be compromised as well.
Humans have sentimental and heirloom items that we store. Unfortunately, storage spaces are isolated and a prime location for rodent infestation.
When winter hits, a roof rat will seek shelter in your shed to stay warm. Rodent infestations happen inside and outside of your house. Protect your shed and garage.
Rats, mice, and other rodents will ravage your garden and hide in the woodpile. Removing rodents will also benefit your lawn care.
When you hire a professional rodent removal expert to remove and keep rodents out of your home, you will have total peace of mind.
