Rat Control at Accelerated Drain Services
Rats carry diseases such as Salmonellosis and Leptospirosis. They eat and contaminate stored food – not to mention creating fire hazards by chewing through electrical wires. So if you see a rat scuttle across the floor, or hear them running around inside walls or the loft – you need the problem dealing with, fast.
Your instinct may be to handle the issue on your own. But if you want to deal with the problem in the fastest and most efficient manner then you need an expert rat exterminator, like us at ADS. We have a proven track record for vermin control, along with a wealth of experience in this field.
Rat investigations aren’t limited to drains, however, it’s safe to assume that this is the prime suspect for rat entry.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Vermin Control?
Vermin control is usually a service provided by experienced rat exterminators. It is a program designed to prevent and eliminate the presence or infestation of pests.
What’s the best way to get rid of rats fast?
One of the most effective methods to prevent rats from entering in the first place is to arrange a CCTV drain survey. The survey will identify defective pipework which could allow rats to enter.
Setting traps is also ideal for rat removal. However, rodenticides (rat poisons) are considered the best way to get rid of rats and come in pellet, metal and block form. These effective poison baits can be used in areas that aren’t accessed by children or pets – making them a fast yet safe option for vermin control.
How much does a rat exterminator cost?
The cost of a rat exterminator in London varies depending on a number of factors, including property size and the severity of the infestation.

How do I know if I have a rat infestation?
Worried you might have a rat infestation and need vermin control in London?
Once rats enter your home, they will hide in clutter, make nests and breed. But the good news is, there are a few tell-tale signs you have a rat problem.
• Rat droppings – rats produce up to 40 droppings each night. These are oval-shaped, like an olive.
• Rub marks – rats have terrible eyesight, so rub along the skirting boards and walls to navigate their way around your home. Grease and dirt on their bodies leave a mark on the objects and surfaces they brush up against.
• Scratching noises – rats are most active in the evening and tend to scratch around in the loft or walls.
• Nests – rats often shred cardboard, loft insulation and other soft items to make nests in the attic, under eaves and in cavity walls.
• Footprints – rats leave feet and tail marks, especially in dusty areas of the house (e.g. the attic or basement).
• Nasty odours – when rats live, eat, multiply, defecate, die and decompose, they produce a foul smell that’s unavoidable.
If you spot any of the above signs, you more than likely have a rat infestation. But don’t panic – the team at ADS specialise in vermin control in London and will help to eradicate the problem safely and efficiently.
Why is vermin control so important?
Rats and other rodents carry diseases that can be detrimental to human health.
If you have a rat infestation, you’re at risk of developing Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome. This can be spread by inhaling dust that’s contaminated with rat urine or droppings or getting bitten by a Hantavirus-infected rat.
Rat-bite fever is another health risk, spread by a rat bite or coming into contact with a dead rat. Salmonella can also be caused when rats contaminate the food and water you eat and drink.
On top of being dangerous to your health, rodents can also cause serious property damage – resulting in expensive repairs.
Vermin control is essential for keeping you and your family safe and sound, as well as your home.
So, if you suspect you have a rat problem, make sure you act quickly and contact the team at ADS.
Specialising in rat control in London, we’ll arrange a CCTV drain survey to establish how rats are getting into your property and how to prevent it from escalating further.
What is the best way to keep vermin out of my home?
There are several things you can do to prevent vermin from entering your home and multiplying, such as keeping food in sealed containers, minimising clutter and laying traps.
However, the most effective way to keep vermin out of your home is to inspect for structural damage and ensure that any cracks and openings are filled in. This will make it much harder for rats to gain access to your property.
Even better still, we can carry out a thorough rat investigation – using our state-of-the-art CCTV technology – to identify any flaws in your drainage system and defects in the pipework. Once we’ve established how and where rats are getting in from, we can then advise on the best course of action to take and help you to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
