In the average loft in the UK, you can find a wide variety of rodents and pests, including rats, mice, squirrels, birds, and more. If the infestation issue is neglected, your loft will become a pest-infested breeding ground that will be unusable. And that isn't everything. Rodents and pests can be particularly destructive if no control is established.
Not having a plan in place for adequately controlling or eliminating rodents and pests in your loft can lead to serious issues that you will be forced to pay attention to in the future. Some of the most significant issues you will face include:
Property damage: Rodents and pests are renowned for being destructive. Over time, they will chew away your loft insulation, electrical wiring, and in some cases, even the wooden structure of your roof. Having to fix any of these issues later down the line can be pretty expensive.
Health risks: Rodents are known carriers of diseases and bacteria, meaning being exposed to them over a longer period of time can put your and your pet's health at risk. Some of the diseases they carry include rat-bite fever, hantavirus, and salmonella.
Spread of unpleasant odours: Droppings and urine from rodents and pests will start to accumulate, and over time, especially in the summer, you will start to notice unpleasant odours coming from your loft.
Increased risk of fire: If a rodent chews up the wrong wire, that can put your property at risk of fire.
And if you happen to run a business, the problems for you don't end there, especially if you're in the business of dealing with any type of food or beverage. In such case, an infested loft can result in:
Hefty fines & risk of getting your business shut down
