What attracts rodents into homes?

One of the main reasons why rodents enter homes is because of the chance of food and shelter. In the warm and dry conditions our properties provide, they can find solace and the chance to reproduce.

Leaving food out in the open, or leaving rooms untidy, are some of the habits that will cause rodents to come into your home.

Danger rodents can cause

Now let's take a look at some of the main dangers rodents pose to properties, and ways they can be prevented.

quickly use their initiative to make themselves at home in your building, so it is important that you take steps to stop this.

Harm to the building’s structure.

Rats continuously chew through anything they can, as their teeth never stop growing. Unfortunately, the results of this are often costly and significant repairs.

Rodents can enter your property through the smallest of holes, sometimes leading to structural damage. This could result in harm to facades, electrical work or pipes within your walls.

To avoid this happening to your building, it is recommended to seal up any holes in the premises. You should also take care to regularly check your home for signs of cracks or holes – consistent maintenance should reduce the chance of these pesky rodents.

However, if you need it, our pest control services are here to help. We have plenty of experience in dealing with infestations, and only use non-abrasive and non-toxic products during the treatment.

Destroying electrical equipment

As mentioned previously, rodents love to chew on things. In some instances, this can become a dangerous hazard.

If the protective layer around electrical wiring is bitten through, this could cause a fire to start or for the electricity to falter.

Throughout your home, check that all electrical outlets are in working order and ideally kept out of reach of rodents’ teeth. This could involve protecting them in casing or storing them away when not in use.

The results of a fire can be catastrophic and may involve you having to move out whilst repair work is undertaken. In the instance this happens to you, our fire damage cleaning services will be able to help. Our teams will work to return your home to a safe environment.

Sewage Cleaning Service Breakdown

Specialist decontamination and cleaning

Working by IICRC guidelines, we will use our specialist equipment to undertake deep decontamination and cleaning of your property. It’s imperative that this stage is undertaken by a professional, as sewage can cause severe damage to properties.

Odor removal

As you can imagine, odor removal is one of the most critical parts of our sewage cleanup service. We have a number of methods for complete odor removal, including wet fogging, thermal fogging, ozone treatments and sealing. Our odor removal service is thorough enough to ensure that no lingering odors remain in the property.

Specialist drying

Once your property is thoroughly cleaned and decontaminated, we will use drying equipment that incorporates the latest technology to ensure your property is completely dry. We are thorough in our drying process and make sure we also dry underfloor insulation and any voids. This prevents mold from growing in the future.

Mold remediation

If mold has already begun to grow in damp areas of the property, we will first carry out a mold survey to determine the extent of the problem. We will then work to eradicate the problem before it worsens, using the latest mold remediation techniques.

Eradication of harmful pollutants and bacteria

Both grey and black sewage water has the high potential to transmit harmful diseases to those who come into contact with it. Most commonly, this includes pathogens such as bacteria, parasites, and viruses. Therefore, we do more than just clean up sewage; we use the latest decontamination techniques to eradicate all traces of bacteria and viruses.
