As the weather cools down here in the Valley, you’re probably seeing less pest activity inside of your home. Don’t take this to mean you should lower your defenses! To the contrary, now’s the perfect time of year to start getting your home ready for summer and keeping pests out. Sealing your home this winter just makes sense.
In this article, we’ll discuss the benefits of home sealing, how it works, and why you should call Arizona’s Best Choice Pest & Termite Services. We’ll also review some of the other reasons to have us seal your home.
Benefits of sealing your home
#1. Eliminates points of entry
Many pests can fit through a tight squeeze. The Arizona Bark Scorpion, for instance, can squeeze between spaces as thick as a credit card. If you’re going to block pests from getting into the living spaces of your home, you’re going to need some expert help.
That’s where we come into the picture. Our home sealing specialists are experts when it comes to identifying pest points of entry and how to best seal them for deterrence.
Every home’s pest situation is unique. There are, however, some common ways that pests use to get into people’s homes. Here’s just a few:
- Unsealed doors or windows
- Openings around pipes or faucets
- Torn screens
- Cracks in walls and foundations
- Broken screens or mesh on weep holes
By addressing these pest superhighways into your home, you can prevent a lot of pests from getting in, leading to a better, pest-free summer.
#2. Save energy and improves your air
Air leaks are a major cause of energy loss in the home. You spend a lot of money cooling your home in the summer and heating it in the winter: wouldn’t it be better for some of that money to stay in your pocket? By sealing air leaks around doors, windows, and elsewhere, our team can help you keep your home comfortable for less.
Plus, sealing these entry points will help keep your indoor air pollen- and dust-free. That means easier breathing for you and your family when you’re enjoying time inside the house.
#3. A thorough and effective form of pest control
Arizona’s Best Choice Pest and Termite Services works hard to comprehensively seal your home. Our state-certified pest control technicians inspect your home, close spaces between doorways and windows, and seal cracks and crevices. All-in-all, the 21-step process includes the use of wire mesh, caulk, and weather stripping. It’s individualized to your home, which means we inspect for pest points of entry and then deal with them, one-by-one.
