The Dangers That Rodents Can Do To Your Home and How We Can Help Address Them

As a homeowner, a rodent infestation is one of the last things you’d want to deal with. You might go up to your attic one day and be welcomed by the pungent, foul-smelling odor of rodent urine. Or you could open a kitchen drawer and find it filled with rodent droppings. If you’re facing a rodent problem, be sure to contact Mammoth Restoration right away for restoration services in Flagstaff, AZ.

If you wait too long before calling a restoration company, the likelihood of the following hazards increases.

Fire Hazards

Many fires attributed to “unknown causes” likely occurred due to rodents. This is plausible since rodents spend most of their time gnawing on something, chewing anything that comes their way, including paper, cardboard, plastic, insulation, and, you guessed it, electrical wiring. Exposed and damaged electrical wires spark, overheat, and can very well be the cause of a house fire. While we do offer quality fire damage restoration services, it’s best to eliminate the things that could prompt you to need our help.

Health Hazards

Rodent urine, saliva, feces, and blood can transmit several diseases, including Tularemia and Hantavirus. They can also carry lice, ticks, fleas, mites, and other pests into your house, meaning they can also spread more diseases indirectly. Since rodents present numerous health hazards, it’s imperative that you call for emergency restoration services so that the infestation can be taken care of.

Food Contamination

Rodents can easily get inside your cupboards. They have a strong sense of smell, enabling them to sniff out a particular food location through containers, doors, and even walls. Once inside, rodents will gnaw on bags and boxes of food and find hiding places near the food sources. If you don’t seek prompt restoration services, the rodents will keep on getting into your cupboards, resulting in considerable food loss.

Apart from helping you deal with the aftermath of a rodent infestation, we also offer other services such as water damage restoration.
