What is Rodent Proofing?

rodent proofing - neo attic solutions

Homeowners face all types of problems when it comes to maintaining their property. Small rodents like rats and mice carry diseases that can be harmful to humans. They may look cute with their little tiny ears and long tail, but the destruction they do is anything but cute. They get inside your house and create quite a mess. 

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 causes unwanted disturbances in the home but can also cause extensive damage to your home that can be costly to repair. 

When you discover that you have a rodent infestation, you need to take action immediately. Rodents spread disease by contaminating food and through their droppings. They get into drawers and cupboards and leave them everywhere. You need to be very careful not to touch them. If you clean up any mouse droppings, wear gloves and discard everything in the trash immediately.

When you are dealing with a rodent infestation, you need to call a reliable rodent proofing company that you trust. 

What exactly is rodent proofing? 

You may not be familiar with the term, but rodent proofing is the process of identifying and eliminating the conditions making it possible for rodents to live in your home, office, or apartment. They get into homes through a variety of ways, from climbing up pipes to gnawing through walls. They are very resilient and can squeeze into the tiniest space imaginable.

When the weather changes, mice look for warm, dry places to like attics or basements to take up residence. They gather trash and other items to build a nest and start multiplying. In order to keep them from taking over your home, you need to cut off their access to food, water, and a place to sleep.
