If there is a rodent pest in your attic or if you have a rodent-resistant attic, it is important to note that pests can easily spread further to other parts of your home by using the openings as crawl space.
Destruction and cleaning becomes much more difficult and expensive if you wait for the problem to spread, causing even more damage. Also, without a track cleaning service, you might not even know the extent of contamination damage.
