Pasadena and Arcadia (PRWEB) January 16, 2014
Rat and rodent infestations are common in house attics and crawlspaces in Southern California homes. These animals are unsanitary and carry diseases that are unhealthy for humans. These rodents also chew wiring and other materials causing significant damage if not eradicated immediately. This makes rat removal in Pasadena and Arcadia, CA important for home safety.
The damage from rodents can cause fires, create leaks in roofs and walls, as well as contaminate food goods in the pantry. Fires have been caused by rodents chewing on wire exposing the protective sheath meant to insulate the hot wire. Once the wire is exposed and flammable material comes in contact with the wire, it has the potential to ignite and catch fire.
Since often times rodents chew their way into a Arcadia or Pasadena, CA home, they leave a hole at their entry point. This hole now allows for future rats and mice to enter, along with the outside weather, including cold air and rain. These holes in the structure will need to be fixed with material that keeps out the rodents and the weather.
Rats and mice are known to frequent the food pantry leaving evidence behind. Because rats and mice defecate indiscriminately their feces are left inside of the food containers they gnaw into. It is recommended to throw away any food rats or other rodents have gained access to.
One of the most damaging materials rats and other rodents destroy in a home is the insulation. The animals nest inside of the insulation and use it as a bathroom. The attic insulation becomes less effective because of the urine saturating the insulation, which compresses it down. This compression leaves less air space, letting out more of the home’s conditioned air.
The insulation absorbs the feces and urine creating an unsanitary attic space and overhead rodent toilet for the homeowner. Removal of rodent droppings from rats, mice, raccoon, opossums and other animals is recommended. This should be done by a professional company familiar with the proper safe techniques for this hazardous material.
In more extreme cases it is recommended to remove and replace the insulation. If the insulation is saturated with feces and urine the attic needs to be cleaned, sanitized, and the old hazardous insulation removed. The recommendation is that this be done by a company specializing in this type of removal. The insulation can be replaced with material that is less desirable to rodents and gives better than average insulation value to the home.
