There are a lot of things out there that can cause damage to your home. You might be worried about flooding, earthquakes, or severe weather, but there is something a lot smaller that can destroy your home. They might look small and furry, but there problems caused by mice and rats loom large. Rodents are equipped with super front teeth. Unlike your teeth, rodents’ front teeth never stop growing. In fact, a rat’s tooth grows fast enough to replace the entire thing in about 45 days. That means that their front teeth are never more than 45 days old.
Because their teeth constantly grow, rodents are continuously chewing. They have to keep those front teeth sharp. If you get a rodent infestation in your home, their chewing is going to ruin everything. Rodents love to chew, but their teeth are also super strong. Rats can chew through plastics, wood, drywall, glass, even cinderblocks. The good news is that if you have a rodent infestation, you don’t have to live with it.
