Keep Your Attic Pest-Free
One place where pests can fly under the radar is in the attic. It’s important to remove pests so they don’t cause damage to your home or increase the chance of a fire. If exposed wires are in the attic, you must ensure that there are no pests, as they can nibble on exposed wires and cause a fire. Make sure your attic is well sealed from the outdoors to prevent pests from coming in.
