It is virtually impossible to achieve complete rodent droppings cleanup from an attic or crawl space without fully removing the insulation. We can remove contaminated blown insulation in attics, batt style insulation in attics, and batt style insulation in crawl spaces, and then install new insulation in its place while getting rid of rodent contamination at the same time. If you also want additional insulation added to your home on top of existing insulation, we can do that too! At Rodent Cleanup and Proofing In Mill Valley, we perform full crawl space and attic decontamination:
CRAWL SPACE CLEAN OUT
The team at Rodent Cleanup and Proofing In Mill Valley also provides crawl space clean-out as part of our rodent cleanup services. If you only need a new vapor barrier, we can do that too!
What type of insulation do you install?
We will install blown cellulose insulation where applicable. Batt style insulation will be used between floor joists in crawl spaces and basements or on walls.
How much insulation do you install in the attic?
We typically install insulation to an R30 value. However, we can install insulation as deep as you would like.
Do you remove the flooring and other items in the attic before completing cleanup services?
Yes, if accessible, we will remove everything we can so that cleanup can properly occur. Additional fees may apply in some cases.
Our Attic Cleaning In Ross process includes having all of the old insulation removed, then we perform a thorough cleaning of the attic. While the insulation is out we will apply hospital grade disinfectant by fogging into the attic and fogging onto the surfaces of the attic. After the attic sanitizing we install brand new insulation. We’re not a typical insulation company; at Attic Cleaning In Ross, we specialize in attic cleaning, attic clean outs, attic sanitizing and attic decontaminations, as well as insulation removal and insulation replacement.
There are various health issues from contaminated attic insulation. One of the most harmful ways your attic can make you sick is the situation of rodents or wildlife gaining access to your attic. If you have damaged air ducts and your insulation is dirty from rodent or wildlife droppings, your home could be exposed to toxic contamination. Rats, raccoons, bats, or other wildlife living and nesting in your attic can potentially lead to exposure to dangerous airborne bacteria. These dirty dust particles and bacteria cause unexplained health issues, itching from mites or flea bites, aggravated asthma or an increase in allergies. It is also a potential risk to those with lowered immunity, such as small children and the elderly.
