Mice and pests can cause serious damage to your home, which if left unaddressed long-term, can compromise structural integrity, and pose safety problems aplenty.
Yet despite the fact that rodent activity is an all too common occurrence, many homeowners tackle the problem, without wondering how it arose in the first place.
However, without discerning the underlying cause, the problem will usually resurface in time, with pests making a reappearance at a later date.
Prevent Pests for Good with Spray Foam Insulation
When considering the cause of pests, the majority of property owners fail to understand how insulation materials influence rodent activity.
Traditional insulation methods are not only less efficient at retaining heat; they also act as a food source for pests, as well as providing the ideal nesting grounds for whiskered intruders.
And the problems don’t end there.
Having rodents in your home also poses a serious hazard to your family’s health, leading to infection and disease if left unchecked.
Fibreglass and cellulose are the main guilty culprits, closely followed by rockwool and sheep’s wool insulation.
In contrast, spray foam stops conniving critters in their tracks, by providing an airtight barrier that is neither a food source, nor a breeding grounds for pests.
