GET RID OF YOUR RAT PROBLEM PERMANENTLY
Rat Control Services
Rat occupation of building fabrics is a rapidly escalating problem and something that most pest control companies really struggle to successfully remedy.
Why? Because the vast majority of these scenarios arise from drainage defects which are hidden from view and which the pest control industry knows very little about. Problem is the drainage industry knows very little about rats and so proper diagnosis and hence the right treatment strategy usually drops in the knowledge gap between them both.
Modern plastic drainage and its installation has gone backwards at a rate of knots since the Victorians pioneered the whole business with their skilled installers and over-engineered clay/cast iron pipes.
Modern PVC plastic drainage is easily chewed through by rats, very often installed incredibly badly and difficult to successfully join to the old clay pipes due to vastly different wall thicknesses.
Luckily this is an area Pestology specialise in and we fill this gap between drainage contractor and pest controller.
Also, adaptations to older buildings – such as extensions – often leave part of the original drainage network open under concrete floors allowing rats to burrow out and emerge into floor voids with great mystery to the property owner.
Even in the few scenarios where the source of the problem is not the drains but an external defect, we have the relevant construction experience to still be able to deduce the root causes and implement the right action.
If rats are infesting your property, there is no scenario we can’t solve but we always survey rat work due to the wide range of possible causes.
In the vast majority of cases, we offer a 1 year defects period for any rat work we undertake so your investment is underwritten.
SO HOW DOES THIS WORK?
YOU CALL THE OFFICE AND EXPLAIN YOUR SITUATION
We’ll ask some questions, answer your questions and generally get an idea of what is going on and what you as the customer want to achieve.
WE'LL BOOK A SURVEY
We’ll need to visit site to get a proper idea of how your building is constructed and how the rats are most likely gaining access. This will usually involve a drainage survey which we’ll conduct ourselves regardless of whether this has already been done by another contractor – we’ve got better equipment, better knowledge and know what we’re looking for.
WE'LL PUT TOGETHER A SCOPE OF WORKS AND A PRICE
Although it’s all discussed on site,we’ll put in writing our diagnosis of the infestation route and the remedial works required. Provided we undertake these works, we’ll also issue a one year guarantee.
IF YOU WANT TO PROCEED, WE CARRY OUT THE WORKS
No subcontractors, no hired in kit – we need to control the process to ensure it all gets done right so it’s all done with our own full time staff, supervised by our own management and using our own plant & equipment.
