Rats and Mice pose serious health threats to people and structures. Rodents are well-known carriers of diseases such as Plague, Hantavirus, Salmonella, Rat Bite Fever, Murine Typhus, Leptospirosis (Weil’s Disease) and Trichinosis.
Rodents will cause extensive damage to insulation, vapor barriers, and HVAC systems in your crawlspace or attic. In some cases, they have been the cause of house fires, due to gnawed electrical wiring. Many times, the contamination becomes so severe that a crawlspace cleanout will be necessary to remove contaminated materials from your home.
