As many East End property owners know, a pest infestation is beyond problematic. In addition to causing health hazards, pests adversely affect the structural integrity of your residential or commercial property. Our team of certified IICRC professionals at SERVPRO of The East End is trained to safely remove biohazards and properly dispose of them in accordance with OSHA and health regulations. Equipped with the recommended safety apparatus and specialized cleaning products, we turn these unhealthy environments back into clean, safe homes and offices, ‘Like it never even happened!’
Rodents Can Invade Your East End Home or Business
Pests can cause serious damage to your property and your health! Property owners are often surprised to find rats, squirrels, raccoons, bats, birds, mice and other pests invading their property in search of warmth, water, and food, especially after they may have left their seasonal homes for an extended period. These creatures contract and transmit numerous diseases and introduce parasites that carry disease into your home. Rats and other invaders breed rapidly and are capable of squeezing through spaces that appear much smaller than their bodies.
There are numerous prevention tips you can implement to decrease your property’s susceptibility to an infestation. One effective strategy is to keep food sources away from open areas. Garbage and crumbs can become food for rodents, as can dry goods like cereals and grains. Make sure that these items are kept sealed away in glass containers to decrease the likelihood of contamination. Also make sure that you properly store vegetables and fruits. This means that you should never leave waste on your counters and sinks. Did you know that cardboard can be attractive to rats and other pests because they chew them up and use the material to make nests. So, be sure that you're not leaving cardboard material out in the open.
Call SERVPRO of The East End for Cleanup and Restoration
It is not surprising that many property owners seek quick solutions that may help eliminate unwanted creatures. Often, property owners attempt to limit or eliminate the presence of rodents with repellents like mothballs or essential oils. But these homemade treatments are not effective in combating a rodent infestation, or eliminating the health hazards they carry. Rather than attempting to complete a do-it-yourself remedy, we strongly recommend that you call a high quality pest control company to exterminate. Following extermination, call SERVPRO of The East End to effectively remediate and restore the property. We even replace any insulation that has been infested. Because of the potential health risks, many homeowners insurance policies may pay for cleanup and restoration. Check your policy provisions with your insurance agent.
Cleaning up after an infestation of rodents is not as easy as it seems. The decontamination of a home or business due to infestation can be dangerous. Specialized experience and training is important when choosing a qualified cleanup company to resolve these problems. Protect the safety and health of your family, friends, customers, and business by having hazardous materials properly removed by the professionals at SERVPRO of The East End.
