Attics play a vital role in the condition of your home, especially when it comes to air quality. If your attic is dirty and the insulation is old, moisture and dirt can get trapped inside, resulting in poor air quality, bad smells, and an increased risk of pest infestations.
At Clean Crawls, we provide premium attic restoration services throughout the Seattle area. Whether we are cleaning your attic or re-installing your insulation, we strive to create a safe and clean environment for your home and your family.
You may not realize it, but attics often have many holes and cracks that let the outside air and pests inside. If those gaps aren’t filled, moisture, dirt, and small animals can get inside and create a space full of mold, mildew, and nasty odors. Moisture in your attic can damage the insulation and wreak havoc on the wood structure.
Maintaining a clean attic will produce better air quality in your home and maintain energy efficiency. This will ultimately lower energy costs and promote the long-term health and safety of your family.
If you have inadequate, old, or no insulation in your attic, you are doing yourself a disservice. You are losing valuable energy through your attic because the insulation isn’t doing its job. When that insulation is old or dirty, it’s getting filled with water and dirt, causing mildew and mold to grow. The air quality circulating in your home is being filtered through dirty insulation, causing the air you breathe to be of poor quality. Also, energy is being lost because the insulation can’t adequately trap the heat in the winter and cool air in summer, causing your HVAC system to work overtime. In time, that lost energy will wreak havoc on your energy bill, costing you even more money.
At Clean Crawls in Seattle, it’s important to us to get the air quality restored by replacing your insulation.
When your attic is dirty and has cracks or holes, pests are able to get inside and live in that space. They make homes for themselves and reproduce, allowing thousands of critters to flourish in the safety of your home.
Pests can damage your home’s structural integrity. Certain pest species eat the soft rotting wood that’s already damaged from the moisture coming inside. They leave droppings, causing unpleasant odors to spread throughout your home. Sometimes if they can’t get out, they die in that space, leaving behind unsightly remains and even disease
The pest removal team at Clean Crawls is ready to exterminate the pests in your home and clean up any evidence of them from your attic space.
