What is Attic Cleaning?
Attic Cleaning refers to the services undertaken to eliminate junk, dirt, debris, rodents, mold, and rodent droppings in the attic or crawl space. In many cases, attic cleaning is undertaken together with attic insulation.
How Often Should I Clean my Attic?
Experts recommend attics should be cleaned at least once every 6 months. Failure to do that can result in your attic being home to rodents and other small creatures. It can also be overrun with dirt, dust, mold which in turn are not only a fire hazard, they can drastically affect the indoor air quality.
During fall and winter, rodents, birds, bats, and other small animals like to get away from the weather. This is the time they are most likely to make their home in your attic. This includes squirrels, mice, chipmunks, and raccoons. This requires a professional attic cleaning service like Air Quality Express.
Why is Attic Cleaning Important?
The attic is typically located in the region just above the rooftop. Unfortunately in most homes, it is also one of the most overlooked parts of a home. This should not be the case given that it can mean the difference between perfect indoor air quality and battles with allergies, mold, unwanted noises and more. Professional Attic cleaning by Air Quality Express can help restore your home's indoor air quality and also lower your energy bill. Additionally, your attic can be the perfect home for rodents given its seclusion. These rodents (and their droppings) can in turn attract bacteria, viruses, dirt, and more. They can also be a source of bad odors in the home. Attic cleaning and decontamination services can also help in ensuring that your insulation is functioning properly and that any leaks or damage to your roof are caught before they cause big problems down the road for insulation services.
How Long Does Attic Cleaning Take?
This depends on the size of the attic and the amount of cleanup to be done. In some instances, some attics have not been cleaned for years. Usually these types of attic contain a lot of junk, rodents (both dead and alive), dirt, dust, mold and more. In many cases, the cleanup process can take a day.
