Home Sealing

Cockroaches and other pests can compromise your and your family’s health. The best way to prevent an infestation is by sealing off entry points. This is where home sealing can prove invaluable. Bugs can fit into the tiniest of spaces. Seal bugs out of your home by filling the cracks, crevices, and holes.

What is Home Sealing?

Home sealing blocks those paths that pests can wiggle through and gain access to your home. Professional home sealers can seal all of the cracks, gaps, and holes on your home’s exterior. This includes screening and sealing doors and other entry points that pests such as scorpions, cockroaches, and crickets can use to get inside.

If you see any pests and insects, you can bet there is more to what meets the eye. There is an entire army of pests in your home that is skilled at hiding. You will only realize their presence when the infestation gets too large to remain unnoticed. Take action fast before it is too late.

The service will deploy a full-time team to your place during the home sealing process. The team will use a step-by-step home sealing process, by first identifying potential entry points. and then blocking any access to your home. Some of the areas they may seal are, the area around door frames and AC vents, roof vents, and where the foundation meets the siding.

Top Benefits of Home Sealing

Besides pest prevention, home sealing can also provide benefits that can last for years:

Seal holes, gaps, and cracks

These entry points can be found in the seams where your roof meets the wall or even in the basement, attic, the space where pipes come out of walls, or crawl spaces. Pest prevention services such as KY-KO Pest Prevention use weather-resistant caulking materials to seal these off from species such as red and black ants.

Block flying insects

A ripped or missing screen on your windows invites flying pests inside. Some also have missing screens in attic airflow vents. Flying pests such as bees and wasps can easily pass through them and build hives in your attic. During the home sealing process, these tears will be fixed, or the entire screen may be replaced via a screen patch.

Barricade doors and windows against crawling insects

Windows and doors have small gaps around their frames that can allow pests in. Sliding ones are usually the main culprits since they are difficult to seal off completely. Improperly sealed or open doors and windows allow crickets, moths, and scorpions to enter your home. A pest control service uses silicon caulking to seal windows and weather stripping to seal doors. These create a tight seal that prevents small pests from getting in.

Stay safe from scorpions

Scorpions love to live in block walls that surround Phoenix homes. The gaps between the segments are their ideal breeding ground and offer them the perfect entry spot onto your property. A pest control service can use special caulking to seal those spaces.
