An Australian woman who could take living alongside some of the most poisonous snakes in the world in her stride was shocked to find “revolting” mice had taken up residence in her London flat.
The senior business executive was so disgusted to find mice in her home that, at one point, she considered moving out to live in a hotel.
She said: “I’m used to dealing with snakes and other creepy crawlies like cockroaches in Australia, but I couldn’t stand it when I found mice running around my home in London. I had to do something about it really quickly.”
No-hassle mouse removal a must
The woman, who does not want to be named, called SUPERPROOF because she wanted to get rid of the mice in one step and permanently, without the hassle of trying to kill the rodents with poisons and traps.
She said: “Using mouse poison and traps would have been just as bad as having the mice running around, because you’d be dealing with the bodies of dead and injured animals. The idea of that was quite revolting.”
SUPERPROOF carried out a programme of mouse proofing in the flat in Brixton, South London, which our customer shares with a flat mate. The work came with a certified guarantee that the flat would be free of mice for at least a year.
Mice returned – so we did too!
Later, she found evidence of more mice, so SUPERPROOF returned and carried out further mouse proofing, completing the process of preventing mice from getting into the property’s living space.
Our customer said: “It was disappointing when the first round of mouse proofing didn’t work completely. But SUPERPROOF straight away arranged for a second visit. Since then we haven’t seen any more mice, which is a huge relief.”
She and her flat mate kept their ground-floor home very clean. They would see two or three mice a year, so they were shocked when the mouse infestation suddenly and rapidly took serious hold. They found mouse droppings everywhere, and the flat, including the inside of food cupboards, began to smell of mice urine.
“Determined and smart” mice
The SUPERPROOF customer said: “These mice seemed very determined and quite smart. They could chew through plastic storage boxes to reach food. There were signs that they had tried to get through the packaging of some very expensive olive oil I had brought back from Greece.
“Thankfully, SUPERPROOF solved our mouse problem before that happened. It would have made a huge mess, and it would have been very sad to have to throw away all that nice oil.”
SUPERPROOF Technical Director Gulliver Hill said: “We’re very pleased to have removed the mice for our customers. We have a first-time fix success rate of over 90%, but in some cases, like this one, we have to return to fine-tune the mouse proofing process.
“Because we provide customers with a certified guarantee for our work, and because our reputation as the UK’s leading mouse proofing specialist rests on the quality of our work, we will always do everything it takes to make a customer’s property mouse-free.”
SUPERPROOF works by stopping mice, which live in cavities in walls, floors, and ceilings of properties, from getting in to human living space to forage for food. Therefore, they must move out to find food, or they perish.
