Viking Pest Control Rodent Services
Rodent problems in your home or place of work can happen for a number of reasons such as; drainage issues or building faults which rodents will then exploit to enter your property. Once inside your property Rodents can spread out and where possible will enter the living spaces to look for food and nesting materials, therefore good housekeeping can be pivotal in ensuring rodents do not get a foothold in your property. Left unchecked rodents can present a serious risk to your health through the spread of diseases found in urine or droppings, they have the potential to cause serious damage to possessions and stock and may even cause fire through chewing and gnawing on electrical cables.
Common places in your building where you may find rodent activity include; loft/roof spaces, under kitchen units, floorboards and stairs or in cavity walls. As part of out inspection Viking Pest Control check all of these areas whenever possible. For a business a Rodent problem can be devastating for the reasons already mentioned but in addition a Rodent issue may also cause loss of reputation or even closure, this is especially true for food retailers.
