If you own your own home, at some point you will need to have a proper attic decontamination job completed by a professional attic cleaning company. Although it can be tempting to tackle this job on your own, it is definitely something you should reserve for the professionals.
There are many reasons why it’s critical to prioritize having your attic sanitized and decontaminated by a professional. The biggest probably, the presence of airborne germs, allergens, dust, and mold, which can trigger many adverse health reactions. All of these reasons signify that it is simply not a do-it-yourself job.
Chemical Detoxification and Sterilization
During the attic sanitation and decontamination process, you will first want to perform a thorough deep cleaning.
A professional attic cleaning company will scrub the attic with brushes, sponges, water, and other cleaning solutions. This will help remove dust and dirt, which has inevitably collected over the years.
Additionally, during the evaporation and vaporization process, dirt will be separated from vapor, removing any residual and unwanted material.
Additionally, the attic decontamination process also includes washing the space with pressurized water to remove any loose dirt and dust. A professional will use steam jets and a thermo-compressor to essentially blast away any unwanted dirt, allergens or other material from hard-to-reach areas. Dry-heat sterilization uses electricity to kill any harmful microorganisms present in the environment.
