Roof Rat Damage to the Ducts in a House in Marietta

Rat gnawed a hole through a flexible heating duct in a house in Marietta. The homeowner tried to seal the hole with duct tape, but the rat gnawed through it.

Roof rat damage to ducts in Marietta

The reason this damage is serious is because the rat actually got inside the duct. That means that the whole duct system will have to be inspected for damage, and cleaned if necessary.

The good news was that it never made it into the air handling equipment itself. When that happens, at a minimum, dead rat will have to be scraped from the fan. At worst, the blower and motor (and sometimes more) will have to be completely replaced.
