Make sure your attic is rodent and mold free.
The best thing about having a clean attic is not only piece of mind it can also save from massive expense later on down the line. Here is why a good insulated and maintained attic can help you with making sure you don’t have to spend in the future.
Attic cleaning identifies if you have any rodents living up in there. If you have heard scratching in the night it could be because you have raccoons or squirrels, rats or mice nesting above you. It does not take much for them to find their way in and if your attic is not sealed properly this can spell trouble. Not only can they chew through cables, this can become a major fire hazard and we have heard many cases where wild animals have sparked a fire through their actives. To get around this have your attic cleaned if you have not already done so recently. An energy efficient expert will come and inspect your attic first to identify any problems or foreseeable issues. Once found they will work to seal the areas where an animal can gain entry and cause issues. If they notice the insulation is looking dirty and covered with animal droppings they will suggest changing it out. Animal droppings can carry disease so you really don’t want to have that sitting in your attic. A change of insulation really does not cost that much and if your house is older there is a good chance it’s never been changed since it was first installed. Pictures will be taken before and a decision is made so you can see for yourself and make the call on what you wish to do.
Mold can form in an attic.
If you live in a humid location and your attic is not ventilated properly then mold can form and that can be a major issue. You have damp stagnate air stuck in your attic with no way to vent and that will stick to any timber and next thing you know mold is being formed. This can be an issue because if your vents are not sealed properly before you know it the spores are being blown in to your home and you will have an even bigger issue. Our experts will make sure this does not happen with preemptive action. And if you do have mold it’s not an issue because we can remove it and make sure your attic is 100% clean from any mold.
