Why Is There a Mouse in My House?
Mice can squeeze through the tiniest holes. If there are mice in your home, then undoubtedly there are holes allowing them to enter. Our team of structural experts find these tiny holes and seal them with rodent-proof materials.
Some homes are built with structural issues that allow mice to enter, like a gap around the whole house where the foundation meets the siding. Another common area where mice enter is around utility lines that enter the house. Our team will install rodent-proof door sweeps, and seal gaps and holes to keep mice out of your home.
Even the best built homes contain holes that mice can use to get inside. A mouse will enter through any hole larger than ¼ inch. Once inside they breed quickly, tunnel through insulation and compact it with their feces and urine, contaminate food and spread disease. We don’t just eliminate the mice inside, we seal mice out.
Mice have their place in nature, not in your building.

If You’ve Had Mice Once, You’re More Likely to Keep Getting Mice
Mouse urine contains pheromones, the chemical signals that mice use to communicate with one another. The mice in your house saturate your home with urine. The mice outside smell this and choose to come inside your house. Unless all entry points are discovered and sealed with mouse-proof materials, mice will continue to enter year after year.
What’s That Musty Smell?
Once inside, mice breed quickly. In one year, two mice can grow to 64. Each one of those mice deposits 50 fecal pellets and over 100 drops of urine each day inside your home. Their feces and urine leave an unpleasant odor that lingers for years. We seal mice out to keep them from getting inside in the first place.
Mice Cause Fires
In addition to spreading diseases like salmonella, mice are a fire hazard. In the outdoors, mice gnaw grasses to build nests. In your home, they gnaw wires instead. Our team will find how they’re getting in, and seal them out with mouse-proof materials that they can’t chew through.
How Do I Mouse Proof My House?
Mice have strong teeth that contain iron, so they can chew through wood and other materials. Our special rodent-proof materials contain stainless steel that mice cannot chew. You can have a mouse-free home by having our team of structural experts look for all of the holes through which mice are entering and seal them with rodent-proof materials.
What Doesn’t Work to Keep Mice Out?
Some of the most commonly used materials to keep mice out of homes are actually really bad at keeping mice out. Steel wool rusts and shrinks and allows mice to enter. Expanding spray foam is even worse, and can be easily chewed by mice. The best materials to keep mice out contain stainless steel and are made specifically for sealing rodents out.
