The Problems Pests Can Cause In Homes

Whether termites or rats, having pests in your home is gross and unsanitary, increasing the sense of urgency to eradicate them. But that's not the only reason to want them out of your home as soon as possible. Pests belong outdoors, so when they make their way into your home, there's a world of damage they can do, and sometimes this damage is done right under your nose without you even realizing it.

  • Furniture Damage: Fabric furniture is ideal for pests, as they can eat and rip holes into the fabric. They will eat the wood of your furniture as well, like the legs of a chair or sofa.
  • Electrical Damage: The teeth of mice and rats never stop growing, so they need to chew on soft things constantly, But oddly enough, these pests love to chew on wiring. The softness of the electrical cords and the length and shape of cords make them some of a rodent's favorite things to gnaw on. When they gnaw on a cord long enough, they'll eventually break the protective covering over the wire and can potentially cause fire damage to your home.
  • Structural Damage: Wood-destroying pests like termites, carpenter bees, and carpenter ants will wreak havoc on the structure of your home. Your roof, load-bearing beams, and the foundation of your house are all at risk of damage if these pests get into your home.

Property damage is an integral reason why regular pest inspections are needed, not only to prevent the spread of diseases certain pests carry but also to protect the structural integrity of your house. Many don't realize it, but billions of dollars go into home repairs due to pest damage.
