Rat problems associated with Drains
Rats are known inhabitours of drains and sewers.
When these systems are compromised through drainage defects, rats can leave the sewer network, typically close by to your house foundations and wall cavities.
Working with Rat Detection drainage specialists, Countrywide carry out site surveys to find the defects that allow rats into your property.
What type of defects are there?
We carry out specialist drain surveys utilising top of the range CCTV equipment.
Defects in the drainage system could include:
- Displaced joints,
- Broken or fractured pipework
- Redundant junctions
- Incorrectly fitted connections into the drains
How do rats then get into the home
Once rats leave the drainage system they can tunnel along pipes or come straight under the foundations of the house.
Cavity walls then allow rats free movement around the property which normally ends up in the roof/loft space.
Redundant drain systems beneath house extensions can also provide an easy route in under the property if they are not apped off properly.
