Because your attic is a dark, hot, and humid place, rodents and other small animals are tempted to make it a sanctuary. These include rats, bats, raccoons, mice, and even squirrels. This can result in annoying scratching sounds and other noises during the day and night. It can diminish your overall air quality in the home due to dead animals, urine, and feces. Small animals and rodents can also damage your attic and any equipment that may be in it.
In Los Altos, this is a very common problem. That is why you need Attic Cleaning. Attic Cleaning is essentially the same thing as Attic Restoration.

Our Attic Cleaning & Restoration Process
Attic Cleaning In Los Altos prioritizes your attic cleaning and restoration process. We begin with a thorough assessment of your attic to determine damage and entry points. Afterwards, we begin our restoration process will take the majority of a day – and we provide pictures of our progress at every step of the way.
Step One: Attic Inspection
One of our certified technicians will meticulously comb through your attic and associated air ducts to locate any rodent droppings, mold growth, cracks, holes, and gaps in your home sealing. Upon completion, the inspector will schedule an appointment to complete your attic cleaning and restoration.
Step Two: Containment
When the Attic Cleaning In Los Altos cleaning and restoration crew arrives, our first task will be to create a containment unit from the attic door to the outside of your home. This allows us to seal our work from any environmental influence.
Step Three: Insulation Removal
Existing insulation will be removed from your attic using a high-powered truck-mounted insulation removal vacuum. The containment site is then inspected one last time to remove any remaining contaminated debris.
Step Four: Disinfectant & Sealing Your Attic Properly
We remove the contaminated drywall. Then depending on the bacterial or fungal infections prevalent in your home, we use special (environmentally-friendly) chemicals to disinfect the frame of your attic. To ensure their safety, this step requires that the homeowner/s leave their home for up to four hours.
Once the disinfection process is completed, gaps in your attic will be filled with foam sealant; large interior spaces are covered with a wire mesh; and protective wiring is used to cover all fixtures.
Step Five: Insulation: Blown-In, Batt, and Foam
Finally, Attic Cleaning In Los Altos will replace your insulation with either blown-in or batt insulation.
Blown-in insulation is the most common. It’s performed in homes with average ceiling heights and shapes. In this process, a truck-mounted machine blows fiberglass insulation into your attic. Upon completion, our team will thoroughly inspect the attic to ensure every inch has been insulated.
Batt insulation on the other hand, is used in ceilings with unusual heights or diagonal shapes. This insulation is rolled in and hand-installed, requiring the installers to cut each piece to perfectly fit the sides of your attic. The batt insulation installation process is a hands-on approach and requires a much longer time.
Attic Cleaning In Los Altos does not perform foam insulation installations, as we believe foam insulation often negatively affects the ventilation of a home’s A/C system and can lead to recurring mold issues.
