While critters such as
squirrels appear small, all of them can cause a large amount of turmoil to your
home. While the damage is being done, repairs will take a toll on your
wallet and your safety is compromised.
The following are the most common types of structural damage caused by critters:
Fires – Many rodents, such as rats and mice, love to gnaw in order to keep
their ever-growing teeth trim. Unfortunately, they can go after any type
of material. When these critters chew on wires and strip off their protective
insulation, exposed wires can spark a dangerous electrical fire.
Floods – On the other hand, rodents often gnaw on pipes. When they’ve
chewed a hole in one, leaks can occur and cause water damage to your property
and potentially resulting in a flood.
Damage to building systems – HVAC units and duct work can be infiltrated by rodents, who may
live inside these systems, chew through insulation, and build nests. This
infestation can significantly reduce the efficiency of the equipment or
propel hazardous germs in the air.
Penetration damage – These critters typically create holes in roofs, attics, basements,
crawl spaces and ground-level areas as entry ways into your home or building.
They can even undermine foundations, resulting in expensive home repairs.
