Make Sure these Parts of Your Home Are Sealed to Keep Out Pests

Make Sure these Parts of Your Home Are Sealed to Keep Out PestsYou might keep your doors and windows closed, but if your home isn't properly sealed, pests are likely to find their way inside. And you might be amazed at just how little space pests need to wiggle, slither, or crawl into your home. In fact, mice can fit through gaps that are only one-fourth of an inch. This makes it very important that your house is correctly sealed, which will have the added benefit of making your home more energy-efficient. At Eco-Logic Management, we specialize in home seal-ups in the greater Scottsdale, AZ area. Here are some areas of the home that commonly need to be sealed up.

Roof Gaps & Cracks

Cracks, gaps, and holes in your roofing infrastructure can provide an inviting entrypoint for a variety of pests, including squirrels. If squirrels get into your attic, they can wreak havoc by chewing up wires and damaging insulation.

Doors & Windows

Gaps along the sides of doors are often to blame for letting bugs into the home. In particular, sliding glass doors are notorious for having little gaps. Window frames also often have gaps along them that need to be properly sealed. Doors are commonly sealed with weather stripping, while silicon caulking is often used for windows.

Screens & Vents

Window screens are an important line of defense against bugs and other pests getting into the home. However, window screens often become torn or otherwise damaged, creating an easy entry point for small pests. Damaged screens should be replaced or patched. Vents also allow pests into the home, particularly flying insects. This is why it's important that vents have effective screens.
