We offer crawl space cleaning and restoration services for our customers who have discovered that rats and mice have damaged their crawlspaces and attics. Crawl Space Cleaning Hillsborough always inspects the attic of a home with a rat problem.
We know that a rat or mouse invasion in the basement makes it likely that we will find the attic insulation has also been damaged.
Crawl Space Inspections & Clean Outs
Rodent droppings, mold, dust, insulation and other contaminants commonly found in Portland area crawl spaces, are health concerns for many people. Between thirty and fifty percent of the air circulating in the living areas of most homes originated in the crawl space or basement. This, according to the heating and cooling industry’s estimates. This air comes up through the normal joints, cracks and plumbing holes in the floors of the typical Portland Oregon house.
Remember, air that comes directly from the crawl space has not been filtered by the heating system filters. Residents with allergies, mold sensitivities, and some chemical sensitivities will benefit from cleaner and dryer air in their crawl space. Pools of standing water in the crawl space and seasonal flooding are common issues here, and so are the associated mold problems.
We respond promptly to your call and quickly provide a detailed inspection report, along with a plan outlining your choices for dealing with any crawl space problems we find.
Radon gas is present in varying amounts in Portland area homes, and can be a real danger to your family. We often incorporate an inexpensive radon reduction plan when we solve moisture and mold problems.
Crawl Space Restoration Services
Rats and Mice destroy crawl space insulation and foul your breathing air. Please don’t put out poision baits. Using these poisions just makes crawl space problems worse. We specialize in rat control for your home by identifying and closing off all of the small entry points, and standing behind our work.
Air ducts get damaged from a number of factors such as age, poor design, and rodent damage.
Damaged duct work or air duct leaks affect the indoor environment in two main ways:
Cold air is lost before it effectively cools the indoor space. This makes your HVAC system work harder, using more energy and driving your utility bills up.
