Stop Rats in Drains

Stop Rats in Drains

80% of rat jobs we go to originate from drainage defects. 5% of house fires are caused by rats chewing through electrical cables. This is concerning for all of us. Luckily we are the leading experts in rat prevention from sewers and drains.

If you can hear rats around the pipes, toilets, under the floor or in the roof and there are no obvious entry points around the house then its likely to be the drains. Here at PGH Pest Control & Prevention we can stop rats in drains getting into your property or home.

The types of typical drainage defects

Root growth in drains

Broken or stepped pipework

Holes caused by impact or weight damage

Redundant drains – not capped off correctly following building of an extension or conservatory

The above are just a few areas, though rats are opportunists and sneaky – it’s vital to stop access and all entry points rats use.

We have specialist cameras, tracking dies, smoke detectors and drain equipment to inspect all these areas effectively.
