With cold weather comes rats, raccoons, possums, mice, squirrels, birds and bats seek shelter and can find their way into attics and crawlspaces.
During a Blackhawk inspection, the home inspector discovered that wall insulation had been pulled down and shredded by visiting rodents.
Insulation makes great nesting material, which usually becomes contaminated with rodent droppings and urine – a health safety concern.
Rodents will chew through wood, plastic, PVC pipes, roof underlayment, rubber, electrical wiring, fiberglass insulation, and paper with great ease.
The threat to electrical wires is a serious fire-hazard. Many unexplained house fires are attributed to rodents in the attic or crawlspace.
