Attic CLEANING & RESTORATION
Keeping your home clean and air safe with over 10 years of experience
Why Attic Cleaning and Restoration in Houston?
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 Houston, this is a very common problem. That is why you need Attic Cleaning. Attic Cleaning is essentially the same thing as Attic Restoration. If you live in Houston, it is recommended that you clean your attic at least once a year. That is because, over the course of time, it can harbor contaminated insulation, rodent feces, rotten wood, and much more. This can negatively impact your indoor air quality and energy efficiency.
Cleaning or restoring your attic can ultimately save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars in energy costs, utility bills, property damage, pest control services, and even healthcare costs. Air Quality Express is one of the leading attic cleaning companies in Houston. We help you avoid these additional costs. Whether you need minor insulation work or a significant clean-up, give us a call.

Our Attic Cleaning & Restoration Process
Air Quality Express 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 Air Quality Tech 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, Air Quality Express 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.
Air Quality Express 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.
The insulation materials we use is determined by the results of the attic inspection. Each home is different and the type of insulation used can have a different effect on your home. Some materials may be more efficient in certain areas than others. Overall we ensure we use the most effective, efficient insulation for your attic.
Air Quality Tech takes into account the high humidity levels prevalent in South Texas. As a result, we only utilize options that have excellent heat and moisture resistance. Additionally, all of our options have highly rated fire-resistance, low toxicity, and long-lasting support. Our materials include fiberglass, mineral wool, cellulose, and much more, all of which are safe and environmentally-friendly. To inquire about other materials, please contact us.
Attic Cleaning and Installation Methods
When embarking on your attic cleaning and restoration, we always ensure we meet all the industry standards and adhere to all applicable Houston codes. We may use either blown-in or batt insulation, depending on the property. The methods we use may also be determined by the dimensions of your attic. We distribute blown-in insulation in a unified format using a specialized machine. On the other hand, we roll out and install batt insulation by-hand. In either case, both methods are cost and time-effective, particularly when our experienced team installs it.
