Professional Proofing & Prevention
Rats have an uncanny habit of finding their way into properties through all manner of entry points including:
- Gaps around your pipes
- Gaps underneath eaves
- Gaps around your window and door frames.
Rat-proofing is essential to preventing future problems, as it prevents rats from re-entering your property and returning to their preferred nesting area.
We will identify the root of the problem and find all the openings that rats use to enter your property. These are then sealed using steel, mesh and other strong materials, making your property 100% rat-proof.
We have full liability insurance which provides peace of mind for our staff, customers and the general public. We pride ourselves in providing the highest level of customer service possible and we aim to leave every client feeling happy with the service provided.
Once the initial service is complete a detailed inspection report will be provided to you. Our pest controller will then arrange a convenient time to carry out a follow-up visit.
We generally need to carry out 3 follow-up visits after the initial service has been completed. These follow-ups are usually once a week or every second day.
The first and second follow-up will let us know how bad the infestation was and where you have had evidence of rats.
During the follow up visit the pest controller will re-bait as necessary and arrange the second follow-up with you. On the last follow up, we would carry out a final inspection of your property to make sure it’s all clear, before advising you how to prevent rat problems in the future.
