The amount of damage that pests can do to an attic is mind-blowing. There are so many different parts of the attic to be concerned about: wires, foundation, insulation, etc. It’s enough to make anyone’s head spin and of course, just thinking about the amount of work it’s going to take to restore it is overwhelming. It might even cause you to wonder if you need to restore it all. The answer is yes.
It’s so important to restore your attic after a pest infestation. Pests leave behind urine, feces, prey they have eaten from, etc. All of which can be detrimental to a human’s health. But, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Pests can also chew on electrical wires and when you put those wires up against insulation, that increases the chances of an attic fire. Droppings or feces on the floor can be tracked around on your shoes and carried around from area to area. Because pests carry disease, this can be a way of transmitting it to your loved ones.
While these reasons alone are enough to get your attic restored, here are few more reasons.
- It can be better for your electricity bill
Due to the impact that pests have on insulation, it can increase both heating and cooling bills. Pests tear apart insulation so that they can use the materials to make their nests, or they simply tunnel through it to find a path through. Pests also gnaw and damage both pipes and wires, which can also increase the electricity bill.
It helps to detract pests from your attic
Smaller pests will always bring in bigger pests since they are looking for prey to eat. By removing pests and restoring your attic, you are telling bigger pests that there is nothing to see here. Bigger pests will be less likely to come into your home.
It’s beneficial to your health
This was stated in the beginning, but I think that it is important to mention again. Pests carry a lot of different diseases and while they look cute and cuddly, it’s important to remember this. So if you see one in your attic, call in a professional and get them out. Removing the pest and restoring your attic is the best thing you can do to keep you and your family safe.
