With Our Help, We Can Make Your Attic Rodent-Free
It is common for rats and rodents to move into your attic without you being aware of their presence, giving them time to infest the area and cause significant damage. These critters can cause a lot of destruction in a short amount of time, which it is why it is so important for you to be aware of the signs that they might be living in your attic.
If you hear scratching in the walls and ceiling, notice droppings and find ripped up food packages in your kitchen, then you need to have professionals come inspect your attic for rats and mice. Once it is determined that rodents are living in your home, then we will get to work rodent proofing the area.
The first thing that needs to be done is closing up any holes inside or outside of the home that are 2 inches or smaller with sheet metal or metal mesh cloth. It is necessary to also seal around doors and windows, as well as closing any gaps around the door and window frames that is 1/4 inch or greater.
It is crucial to inspect the roof for any damage that could be allowing wildlife to get into the attic. Make sure to check that the chimney is capped to prevent animals from crawling inside. Your pipes may also be allowing rodents inside your property. If any run vertically up the side of the home then it creates the perfect runway for rats, mice, and squirrels to get inside your attic.
By removing any food nearby, including pet food and bird feeders, you may not attract as many rodents onto your property. If there are any water dishes, leaking pipes or puddles of water outside, get rid of them immediately. We can assist you with any questions about rodent proofing that you may have, so call us today.
Understanding The Importance Of Insulation
By maintaining proper insulation in your attic you will find yourself enjoying regulated temperatures in your home and lower energy bills every month.
When cared for properly insulation can last up to 20 years, but there are many factors that can contribute its deterioration.
Signs that your insulation may be old and damaged could be uneven temperatures in different areas of your home, higher monthly electricity statements, musty smell coming from your air ducts and sounds of small animals and rodents in your walls and attic.
911 Restoration San Diego will come inspect your insulation and determine whether it needs to removed and replaced. Rodents like to chew through insulation and will leave it filthy and filled with feces and urine. This can then lead to a mold infestation.
By taking out the damaged insulation you will notice a more temperature controlled home and cleaner surroundings without rats and mice living inside of it. We work with all different types of insulation and will determine if batts or blown-in is more appropriate for your attic space.
