Hello From StinkInc
,
It is that time of year again when our little friends start to nest in our homes and our businesses.
Ya, you guessed it, MICE.

How much damage do mice cause?

By chewing, nest-building, and defecating, mice can cause structural damage to homes, apartments, offices, and virtually any other type of building.
Each year, mice cause roughly $20 billion in damage to homes, businesses, and agriculture in the United States.

Does homeowners insurance cover damage from mice?

Homeowner's insurance generally only covers wildlife damage caused by animals like deer or bears.
The insurance company generally does not cover damage caused by smaller pests such as squirrels or mice because the infestations are preventable.

What keeps mice out of the house?

1. Use caulk or steel wool to seal cracks and holes on the exterior of the structure.
2. Ensure that the basement foundation and windows are weather-stripped and that loose mortar is replaced.
3. Make sure that exterior doors have door sweeps and that damaged screens are repaired.

If you have any questions on how to take more necessary precautions on preventing mice from nesting in your home or business, you can call us for free today.

If you have mice in your home or business now, call StinkInc today to have a free consultation on the removal process.
We take the necessary precautions and procedures to ensure your health and safety.

Even spotting just one mouse in your house may not seem like a big deal,
but one mouse can do a lot of damage not only to your home but also to your belongings
Furthermore, mice reproduce rapidly, so a single mouse can quickly turn into a huge infestation.

What Are The Chances Of Only Having One Mouse?

It is highly unlikely to have just one mouse.
The reason for this is that mice breed incredibly fast.
Each female gives birth to between five and fifteen offspring per litter.
In addition, the females reproduce 5-10 times a year.

How Many Mice Are Normally In A House?

Nests of mice can contain anywhere from one to more than twenty mice on average.
As a result, it is essential to take action as soon as possible before the situation worsens.
Invading mice brings all types of diseases into the home with them.
A single mouse isn't going to cause a lot of damage to your living spaces, but a nest of mice will.

Call StinkInc today if you see mice in your home
or place of business.

We will dispose of the droppings properly and eliminate any odor issues.

Minneapolis Residents And Surrounding Areas,
Freezing weather is upon us.
Temp's are going to stay below freezing.
If you have an unfinished basement,
You have a good chance of having your water lines freezing.
You will wake up in the morning, turn your water on,
and nothing will come out.
When water freezes, it expands. This will cause your
water lines to burst or break.
A water line only needs to be at freezing temperatures for at least half a day before freezing.
😳 Scary isn't it??
There are some preventive steps you can take to avoid this.
1. Let water drip from a faucet furthest away from where your
water comes into your home. This will keep the water circulating.
2. Exposed pipes are more likely to freeze. Wrap any exposed pipes
with pipe insulation. You can buy this at your local hardware
store.
3. Open up your cabinet doors to let heat in for any exposed pipes.
4. Use pipe insulation or even an old rag or towel to insulate
any exposed water lines outside, like to your water spigots.
Use duct tape to wrap around the towel to keep secure.

Frozen water lines happen all the time in this weather.
Even if the lines start to freeze, the expansion can cause
any weak lines or joints to burst.
As you know, this will cause water damage to your home.
If you are away, water will be pouring into your home.

If you have any questions, or problems with water damage issues,
you can call us any time, or visit us at:

What Is Asbestos?

Minerals such as asbestos have many diverse uses and are used for a variety of reasons. Asbestos is derived from Greek words that mean "not extinguishable"; asbestos is very resistant to fire and heat.

The strands of asbestos can be extracted from the rock, woven, and spun much like cotton or other conventional fabrics. Additionally to being fireproof and woven into cloth, asbestos is an excellent insulator, has high tensile strength, and is chemically stable. Since asbestos, which has been used for more than two thousand years, has these unusual properties, it has been used for an endless variety of household and industrial applications.

Asbestos is now universally known to be associated with health issues due to prolonged exposure. Long-term asbestos exposure can cause health problems such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. While the negative effects of asbestos exposure may not be noticeable immediately, the cumulative exposure over time may be harmful, so it is imperative that asbestos be removed in Denver establishments as soon as possible.

To perform asbestos abatement in Denver, it is vital that families with older homes with asbestos insulation find an experienced and qualified company. By choosing a Denver asbestos removal company, you ensure the job will be done efficiently and safely, ensuring that you have peace of mind.

or any #waterdamage, #mold, or any #odor control issues that you
might be having.
