your Brentwood home today!
If you live in Brentwood, a rodent infestation is the last thing you might expect to find in your home. Homeowners are often surprised to learn that rats sometimes move into clean spaces. At 360 Rodent Control, our specialists understand what attracts rats. Therefore, we know how to make them leave and never want to come back. Brentwood homeowners count on us to solve all their rat problems.
What attracts rats
It's not always filth that attracts rodents. Rats and mice generally look to make their home in areas that provide three main things:
- protective shelter
You have all three elements present in your home. The challenging part of overcoming a rodent infestation is keeping rats out of your amenities. Fortunately, the team at 360 Rodent Control can help.
We’ll get rid of them and clean the mess they left behind.
Brentwood rodent control service
The team at 360 Rodent Control understands how rats behave. When a rat decides to make an area on your property its new home, the rodent creates a scent path. The rodent can always use the scent path to find its way back after venturing out. Other rodents can also detect and make use of the original scent path. As the rodent comes and goes, it brings additional rodents back with it. Soon you have an entire community of rodents traversing your property and creating a growing network of scent paths.
In addition to ousting the rodents and their nests, we eliminate the scent trails. With no paths to follow back to your home, the rodents will be out of your space for good.
Rodent proofing your Brentwood home
Whether you are eliminating an existing infestation or if you are looking for preventative measures, rodent-proofing keeps rats out. Rodents squeeze into your home through narrow cracks that can be as small as ¼-inch wide. We seal every crack to prevent rodents from squeezing through.
Air duct sealing
Your HVAC system’s air ducts can develop cracks and become damaged over time. Rodents can enter the cracks and infest the ducts. They can also migrate from the air ducts into other areas in your home.
Our repair technicians can seal the cracks in your air ducts. If the ducts are very damaged, we can repair or replace them. Rodents will have one less point of entry. Your air conditioner will work more efficiently and may lower your cooling bills.
Rodents like to settle in dark, dusty attics. Because attics are generally secluded areas, rodents can live there for extended periods before you suspect their presence. As rats make their home in your attic, they leave waste and other biological contaminants. We’ll clean and decontaminate your attic and eliminate the bad smells and rodent scent paths.
Crawl space cleaning
Outdoor rats want to have a protective roof over their heads. Your home’s crawl space may be the most readily accessible area. Most people rarely access their crawl space. When rodents move into your crawl space, they often have enough time to build nests, get comfortable, and plot their invasion into your home’s interior.
Similar to our attic cleaning service, we can also clean your crawl space. We’ll get rid of the potentially toxic remnants of your rodent infestation.
Repairing damage caused by rodents
Rodents cause damage to your home that can amount to thousands of dollars in repair bills. In addition to resolving infestations, we can also repair the damage rats leave behind.
Attic insulation repair
While rats are living in your attic, they’ll help themselves to your home’s insulation. Rodents love insulation. They burrow into it cozily, shred it with the claws, and eat some varieties of insulation foam as a food source. While rats destroy your attic insulation, your air conditioner will be required to work harder to maintain a comfortable, consistent temperature throughout your home.
Our repair technicians are qualified to repair, install, and maintain attic insulation. We can repair the damage rats’ teeth and claws have done.
Electrical wiring repair
If you have rodents living inside your walls, your electrical wiring may be at risk. Rats gnaw on electrical wires to the extent that they are sometimes electrocuted while chewing. The damage rodents do to your home’s electrical wires can increase the risk of blackouts and electrical fires occurring.
We employ licensed, experienced electrical repair technicians. Our technicians will neutralize the elevated risk by repairing and replacing the damaged wires according to your needs.
Roof rats gnaw through your roof’s shingles, wood, and other materials to make themselves at home inside your roof’s structure. As rodents expose parts of your roof to the weather and other elements, more severe damage can occur. We can eliminate the rodent infestation and repair or replace your damaged roof.
For rodent control strategies that work, contact the specialists at 360 Rodent Control. We provide holistic rodent service in Brentwood and surrounding areas.
How can I tell how many rodents are on my property?
If you’ve seen one rat, it’s likely there are many more. The best way to determine the size of the rodent infestation is to call a rodent control specialist and receive a consultation.
Do rats really spread diseases to humans?
Yes, rats can spread diseases to humans through several means. Rodents can directly infest humans by biting or scratching. Humans can also contract a rodent-borne illness if they eat food that has been exposed to rodents. Rats also carry fleas, ticks, and parasites into your home and potentially expose you to the diseases biting insects carry.
What are signs of a rodent infestation?
Seeing a rodent is the most obvious sign of an infestation. However, there are often signs before you see the first rat. Rodents generally leave droppings and urine behind. You may notice an ammonia-like odor. You may also hear the sound of rats running inside your walls or in the ceiling. If you have pets, they will likely notice rats before you do, and their behavior may change.
