You’ve heard squeaking and scratching sounds coming from your attic, and now you’ve even seen a live rodent scurrying around your house. You called a rodent control company and they’ve confirmed your worst fears – you have a rodent infestation. So how much will the rodent removal and rodent infestation cleanup cost? And, is it really worth the investment to have the job handled by professionals?
Hiring A Professional Team Is Worth The Cost
When you can buy traps and rat poison online, you might think that investing money in a professional rodent control and cleanup company is a waste of money. But, hiring a professional company really is the way to go. You can’t put a price on your family’s health, and if your cleanup and rodent control efforts aren’t done correctly you can put your family’s health and safety at risk.
Damages Determine Cost
Rodents can cause serious damage to a home. Rodents tend to destroy the area they build their nests in. Additionally, all rodents need to gnaw on things to wear down their teeth. In a home, this means that everything from wooden doorframes to attic insulation to electrical wiring could be damaged during a rodent infestation. The damage done to your home during a rodent infestation, and the size of the active rodent infestation in your home will determine your rodent infestation cleanup cost. Frayed electrical wiring can put your home at risk of catching fire. Depending on the extent of the damages, you may need to hire a professional to patch or replace damaged wiring in your home. The same goes for your attic insulation. Rodents like to build their nests in attic insulation, which can completely destroy the insulation in your home. If your attic insulation is damaged or contaminated, your insulation will need to be cleaned and decontaminated or, in some cases, removed and completely replaced.
Rodent Infestation Requires More Than Normal Cleaning
Rodents carry a wide variety of dangerous, highly contagious diseases including hanta virus, hemmorhagic fever, salmonella, rat bite fever and typhus. In addition to this, rodent droppings and urine are a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. All of this means that regular cleaning will not be enough to restore your home to a safe, healthy environment. Hiring a professional cleaning and decontamination team with specialized equipment and successful track record of handling rodent infestation cleanup is the best way to ensure that your come is completely decontaminated.
