This Mouse Damage Could Have Been Avoided

The home owner says Rid-O-Mice is an inexpensive solution compared to his renovation bill.

This beautiful brick home with fully finished basement didn’t see this $4000 plus damage coming. A mouse accessed the wall space via the weephole in this photo. Its possible the mouse frequented this spot for a long time, the owners don’t know as they recently purchased the home from the previous owner who was the builder, but what they do know is that it decided to chew on the plastic water line. (that’s right, it was not copper like many home owners are used to, rather it was plastic which professes to have many benefits over copper. I guess the manufacturers marketing department didn’t think about mice in their comparison material).

The water damage took out 2 finished rooms including a bedroom, carpeting and engineered flooring, the walls, studding and insulation.

When it came time to spend $60 on weep hole covers their comment was – what a bargain, given the damage resulted in more than $4000 and  a massive headache and inconvenience dealing with it.
