Rat control

Health, Safety, Damage

When it comes to rat control, we can’t stress enough the importance of maintaining health and safety standards. Rats are notorious carriers of diseases like leptospirosis, Hantavirus, and salmonellosis. These diseases can easily spread through their urine, droppings, and even saliva.

When we’re dealing with a rat infestation, the first thing we think about is how to protect everyone’s health. Our team is trained to RSPH level 2, so we follow strict protocols to make sure that we minimise any health risks during and after the extermination process. We use protective gear and safe pest control methods to guarantee that your family or employees are not exposed to harmful pathogens.

Safety is another vital aspect of rat control that we take very seriously. Rats are not just a nuisance; they can also create hazardous conditions in your home or business. They chew through electrical wires, which can lead to dangerous electrical fires. Additionally, their gnawing can compromise the structural integrity of your property by weakening wooden beams and insulation.

Our trained staff are skilled at identifying these risks and addressing them before they become a bigger problem. We conduct thorough inspections to find all potential safety hazards and eliminate them effectively, ensuring that your environment is secure and safe.

Damage caused by rats can be extensive and costly if not dealt with promptly. We’ve seen properties where rats have chewed through walls, furniture, and even plumbing, causing significant water damage. The financial burden of repairing such damage can be overwhelming, especially if it’s left unattended for too long.

Our team is adept at not only removing the rat infestation but also advising on preventive measures to avoid future issues. We offer tips and solutions like sealing entry points and using rat-proof materials to protect your property from further damage. Our goal is to provide a thorough service that leaves you worry-free and your property rat-free.
