How Do I Mouse Proof My House?
Most homes are not built to keep mice out. Common areas where mice enter include where the foundation meets the siding, utility lines, conduit and pipe penetrations, weep holes, and even under the front door.
Since 1976, our experts have been helping people just like you identify how mice are getting in, and seal mice out with mouse-proof materials such as rodent-proof door sweeps, expanded steel, angle iron, and stainless steel mesh. Over the last 45 years we have developed proprietary techniques to keep mice from getting inside.
They’re looking for shelter. They’re looking for warmth. They’re looking at your home, no matter where you live. Find out how we get mice out, and keep them from coming back.

Once You’ve Had Mice, You’re More Likely to Keep Getting Mice
Like humans, mice are a social species so they want to live with other mice. As each mouse travels into and through your home or business, they deposit over 100 droplets of urine every day. This urine begins to saturate walls, insulation, and wood which makes your house smell like mice. Not only is this odor permanent, but the odor can be smelled by all of the mice still living outside your building, which causes them to choose your home or business over another.
Unless the holes through which the mice are entering are permanently sealed with mouse-proof materials, then it will continue to become infested year after year. Landmark seals mice out.
Why Are There Mice in My House?
A mouse will squeeze through any hole that is ¼ inch or larger to enter a building. Once inside they breed quickly, compact insulation by tunneling through it, ruin insulation with their feces and urine, become a fire hazard by chewing through wiring, and spread disease. Unless every hole through which the mice are entering is identified and sealed with mouse-proof materials, then mice will continue to enter indefinitely.
Landmark is more than just a pest control company, we’re a pest exclusion company. Our team of biologists and structural experts understand all of the ways through which a mouse can enter your home. We identify every hole that is ¼ inch or greater and then use mouse-proof materials that mice cannot chew through to seal mice out.
Don’t let mice ruin your home and destroy your peace of mind. Call Landmark to seal mice out.
What’s That Musty Smell?
Mice are prolific breeders. Within a year, two mice can grow to over 64 mice. The sooner mice are sealed out, the safer your home will be. We seal mice out to keep them from getting inside in the first place.
Mice Cause Fires
Everyone knows that mice spread diseases like salmonella and E. coli, but did you know that rodents such as mice are responsible for causing fires? In the wild they use their sharp teeth to cut grasses. In your home they use their teeth to gnaw through wiring, often causing a fire. Sealing mice out does more than just protect your family or business from the diseases they carry, it reduces the chance of your building burning down.
Repair Mouse Damage and Lower Energy Bills
Mice are excellent climbers and often enter buildings at the roof level. When mice get into an attic, they tunnel through insulation and tear it apart for nesting material. As they move through the insulation, mice contaminate it with their feces and urine, which spreads disease and destroys the insuation’s ability to properly function, leaving your home under insulated.
Landmark’s experts eliminate the mice in your home, seal up the gaps, and repair the damage that mice leave behind. Our team safely removes the contaminated insulation and replaces it with new clean insulation. Not only will your home be more comfortable, but you’ll save money by lowering energy costs.
Do Steel Wool and Expanding Spray Foam Keep Mice Out?
Having mice in your home is stressful, and homeowners will try anything to keep mice out. However, unless mouse-proof materials are installed correctly, you may waste a lot of time and end up with a lot more mice.
For instance, steel wool and expanding spray foam are materials that do not keep mice out. Steel wool rusts and shrinks and allows mice to enter. Expanding spray foam is even worse, and can be easily chewed by mice. The best materials to keep mice out contain stainless steel and are made specifically for sealing rodents out.
Since 1976, our team of biologists and structural experts have been sealing mice out with rodent-proof materials that mice cannot chew through. Our proprietary techniques ensure that the job is done right. Our work is fully warranted against mouse entry, so you can rest easy and live mouse free.
