Handyman Attempt to Mouse-Proof at a House in Carrollton, Georgia

Handyman left gaps between wire mesh on a foundation vent and a dryer vent going through it when trying to mouse proof a Carrollton Georgia home.

Handyman mouse-proofing fail in Carrollton

This is an example of why you don't hire a handyman to mouse-proof your home.

First of all, the hardware cloth the handyman used to screen the foundation vent is much too flimsy. Mice can gnaw right through it.

Secondly, there are gaps between the wire screening and the dryer duct that mice can literally walk right through.

Thirdly, the dryer duct itself needs to be replaced because the flapper door no longer closes tightly.

In short, nothing about this job was done right.

That's why we'll be replacing the foundation vent cover and the dryer vent, as well as sealing up any other openings that we find, to keep mice out of this Carrollton, Georgia home.
