Creates a Safe Space
Unfortunately, pests can harbor infectious diseases, and their feces and urine are highly unpleasant to find (and smell) in your attic. So, removing these creatures from your home and having a complete cleanup and restoration take place is essential to make it safe.
Our team will work on removing all the mess and damaged insulation created by wildlife in your attic. After carefully removing the damaged items, we will disinfect and deodorize your attic to make it fresh and clean for you to use.
Helps to Improve Temperature Control at Your Home
The cold and warm air generated by your furnace and HVAC escape through your roof. It is for this reason that having effective insulation is so important. Unfortunately, your attic insulation is an attractive resource for wildlife, and they will pull it apart to use as bedding and to gain access to areas of your roof space.
This destruction is messy and impacts your ability to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. As part of our attic restoration service, we will replace your insulation to ensure your home is fully insulated.
This will allow you to have effective temperature control in your home and keep it at a comfortable temperature throughout the year.
Could Reduce Your Energy Bills
The use of insulation to reduce your home’s energy consumption is something that the EPA recommends. While insulation in your attic is essential to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, it also reduces energy bills. A poorly insulated home places additional pressure on your HVAC system and furnace as they need to work harder to keep your home at your chosen temperature.
This is because the hot and cold air they generate escape through your uninsulated roof. So, the better insulated your attic is, the less chance there is of warm and cold air escaping through your roof. This means less work for your furnace and HVAC and lower energy bills.
Provides You with Extra Room in Your Home
After your attic has been cleaned up, new insulation has been installed, deodorized, and disinfected. You will again have a functioning attic. With your attic back in great shape, it allows you to make the most of this extra room in your home and use it to its full potential.
A clean, dry, well-insulated attic makes the perfect storage space and is an excellent asset for your home. You may even decide to transform your attic into a living space. Whatever you decide, once the cleanup is complete, you will have the opportunity to use your fresh, clean attic however you wish, without any uninvited creatures in sight.
