Rat Proofing In London
Rat proofing your business is essential to deny access to rodents such as rats. Rats need a constant water supply to survive; they will also eat anything available, making it necessary to remove these sources or prevent access to them. The most common areas we proof to protect you from rats include:
- Drains and sewers: Rats are known to access buildings through drains and sewer pipes. Our rat-proofing techniques include drain covers or screens to prevent access.
- External ingress points: Holes on the exterior of your building need to be rat proofed. Holes located around pipework cause the most concern; however, rats can jump high, so all holes need to be filled with wire wool, concrete or steel plating.
- Doors: As apparent as this may seem, rats squeeze through small gaps under doors. Fitting specialised strips to doors help prevent access.
If you’ve noticed any signs of rats in your business, the problem may be more substantial than you realise. Contact our team to arrange an expert survey to remove rats from your premises quickly and legally.
Why should you deal with a Rat infestation?
- Property damage: rats have a constant need to gnaw and chew. Gnawing can cause more harm than you think, and rats are known to chew through pipes, doors and pretty much anything else.
- Diseases: rats have spread infections for thousands of years, and nothing has changed. The pathogens they carry through their urine and droppings can transmit diseases such as Weil’s disease, Listeria, Toxoplasma and Hantavirus.
