whY is attic cleaning and insulation IMPORTANT?
Keeping your home clean and air safe with over 10 years of experience
A recent study showed that over 90% of all homes in the United States are under-insulated. A properly-insulated attic is able to regulate indoor temperatures. This in turn ensures the air conditioning unit works efficiently to cool the home during summer. Likewise, the heating system is not over-burdened during winter. This in turn results in lower energy costs.
Attic cleaning and insulation is equally important. Most attics are rarely visited by the home’s occupants. A vast majority are used as crawl space to throw away junk. Over time, the attic becomes a breeding ground of rodents and small animals including squirrels, rats, mice, raccoons, skunks, and even bats. Additionally, attics harbor dust, mold, mildew, rust, bacteria, and rodent droppings leading to:
Bad odors and poor indoor air quality
Health hazard including allergic symptoms and respiratory issues
