When pests such as cockroaches, mice, or rats infest your home, get the problem solved as soon as possible. Expect even more problems and dangers to arise if you don’t. Pests can cost you money through the following:
1. Rodents Can Be A Cause of Fire In Your Home
Your home is at greater risk of fires if it’s infested with rodents, such as rats or mice. Always remember that rodents gnaw on things. If these pests chew through wires, it can lead to a fire, which then puts you and your family in danger.
2. Pests Can Go Through Anything Quickly
West Valley’s A1 Pest Control and other pest control companies deal with different kinds of infestation, from slight nuisances to major health problems. That’s because rats, mice, cockroaches, and a variety of other pests eat almost anything. They can damage almost every part of your home.
They can chew, bite, and go through both organic and inorganic structural components of your home. Aside from creating unsightly marks on your otherwise beautiful home, these structural damages can also be potential health hazards.
3. Pests Can Cause Damage Not Only to Your Home’s Structure, But To Your Health As Well
Aside from damaging the structure and the integrity of your home, pests can also bring about numerous types of health problems. For example, cockroaches can carry deadly bacteria such as salmonella and E coli.
Rodents, particularly rats, can carry not only salmonella, but also the fatal Hantavirus. Mosquitoes can also be deadly, as they can carry the West Nile Virus and can cause dengue.
Most insurance companies don’t provide coverage for pest infestation problems. Always be on the lookout for potential infestation to avoid unnecessary expenses and health problems.
