Domestic And Residential Drainage Rat Control

drain surveys rat control swindon

Did you know 90% of internal rat problems within residential and business premises are caused by defects within sewer systems? Rats enter properties through defects within the pipes this could be a broken sewer pipe or a chewed pan connector the list goes on!

They can access roof areas by moving through voids such as cavity walls and nest under flooring and use the areas under floor boards to move around. A rats gestation period is 3 weeks and a single pregnant rat can quickly turn a small rat problem into a large ongoing rat issue.

But don’t fear Pestcatcher Pest Control Swindon are experts in drainage diagnosis and repair. We can carry out full CCTV surveys of drains and sewers in the Swindon, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire area.

Once the problem has been found we carry out a full repair of the broken sewer or pipe and if required install a ratlfap or ratblocker non return valve to prevent the issue occurring again. We always advise that a repair to the sewer is carried out but we understand that costs in doing this can be high especially if the broken pipe is in an inaccessible area such as under kitchen floors and require digging out.

In these situations the installation of a stainless non return valve rat blocker can be carried out to provide a semi permanent solution. We only use stainless steel non return valves and costs for installation may not be as high as you think due to the fact we manufacture and sell out own rat flaps.

We have carried out many repairs to sewers and drains including relining of sewer pipes and pipe repair.

Would just like to say Thankyou for a great service from Mark at Pestcatcher. We had an ongoing problem with rats Mark arrived and carried out a drain survey using a camera and found that we had a collapsed sewer. He repaired the pipe and also fitted a rat flap. We are now rat free which is a great relief. Many thanks Glen Wright in Swindon
