Why sealing your home is an effective way to keep pests out

No one wants pests like roaches, ants, and scorpions in their house. But once these creatures find a way in, it can be challenging to get rid of them—and your house won’t feel quite so much like home until you find an effective pest control solution. If you don’t want to deal with an infestation, consider sealing your house so that these unwanted intruders can’t find their way in.

Why sealing your home is an effective way to keep pests out

Once pests get into your home, they’re good at finding places to hide, such as walls, baseboards, and other crevices. This can make getting rid of them a lengthy process. A better (and simpler) option is to have a professional seal your home, preventing them from coming inside in the first place.

Pests are opportunistic. They invade people’s houses in search of comfortable temperatures, food, and water. If they can’t find a way into your house, they’ll most likely move on in search of other shelter.

Here in the Valley, this is especially true for bark scorpions. As predators, scorpions will only invade your home in search of prey and water. If neither is there and there are no easy pathways in your home, you’re going to see a lot less scorpions in coming summers.

What you can expect when you have your home sealed

Many people don’t realize just how many points of entry their home has for pests. Small cracks around doors, windows, and the foundation can all let unwanted bugs in. Attics, basements, and crawl spaces are also high-risk areas for pest invasions.

As part of our home seal, we’ll take a look at your home and identify all the potential trouble spots that could let pests in. After that, we’ll go through a comprehensive 25-step home sealing process to close off these openings. From your attic to your basement, we’ll lock bugs out of your house to give you better peace of mind.

Older homes are often at greatest risk for pest infestations, but newer buildings aren’t necessarily safe, either. If you’re building a new house, our team of technicians can seal it during the construction process, keeping it bug-free from day one. It’s never too early to think about protecting your home from pests!

What are the other benefits of sealing?

A home seal is a long-lasting, permanent solution to pest problems. It can be effective at deterring pests in concert with insecticides, or done without it for an insecticide-free means of pest prevention. Plus, some aspects of the home seal can actually save you money: by reducing cracks, openings, and other gaps in your home’s insulated layer, you’ll boost your energy-efficiency in the summer and winter.
