Mice Damage

The True Cost of Mice Damage

Mice are a far bigger threat to your home than you might realize, and the cost of dealing with an infestation could be a lot higher than you realize. Below, you will get a better look at just what is at stake when you have mice in the home.

Monetary Costs

First, you have to consider the monetary costs. Not only will you have to think about how much money you will have to spend on the exterminators, but you also have to consider the cost of disinfecting the home. There is the cost of chewed wires, insulation, and damaged woodwork to think about, as well. All of the property damage that needs to be repaired, and getting rid of the odors, can end up costing a lot.

This could cost hundreds of dollars, or thousands of dollars depending on the extent of the damage to the home. Regardless of the number, it is more than you want to have to pay. Of course, you have to realize that the cost of this type of damage is far more than just financial.

Health Hazards

Mice carry disease and fleas, and they leave their urine and droppings everywhere around your house. This increases your risk of coming into contact with a wide range of health hazards including the hantavirus, hemorrhagic fever, and Lassa fever. These illnesses and others can cause serious problems for you and your family.

Fire Hazards

Mice like to chew, and they don’t know that they shouldn’t be chewing through the wires in your home. When they chew, it runs the risk of starting a fire because of the frayed wires. It’s believed that a lot of the fires of unknown causes in the United States each year are because by rodents chewing on wires.

Even if they don’t cause a fire, they can cause quite a few other issues for you. It could mean that your appliances are short out, or that you have major issues with your electrical system.

If you have seen evidence of mice in your home, or if you think that you might have a mouse problem, you will want to get in touch with the specialists at Mice Mob Exterminators, sooner rather than later.
