Can I repair damaged insulation?
In most cases the answer is no. Your attic insulation can easily become damaged by wind, leaky roofs or water lines, insects, rodents, and even excessive settling. Once it's damaged, it becomes less effective and may not do its job at all. Replace any damaged insulation promptly before the issue becomes an even bigger problem. Contact our experts to make a thorough examination of your attic's insulation and let us make recommendations if it needs to be replaced.
Why should I have mold treatment preformed?
Mold is the source of many problems both to do with your home, as well as the health of those who live in it. Mold can damage everything from wood to insulation, which will weaken the overall integrity of your home and how safe an environment it is to be in. Your belongings may also be harmed, including books and clothing. People with breathing disorders like asthma, or even children and the elderly, can all face health hazards if they breathe in mold.
Why should I have my attic cleaned?
A clean attic will not only reduce the messiness in it, but it's beneficial to your family's health. Air circulating through your home means that even if the dust layer is only in the attic, it can be transferred down into the household by polluted air. The quality of it is lowered in the process, which can cause breathing issues for those with asthma or other such disorders. Allergy sufferers will also be affected and have their symptoms remain present even when inside.
How can I be sure all the mice are gone?
If you tried having the mice removed yourself, you can sprinkle some baby powder or flour along the base of your walls and check for fresh footprints the following day. Or, you can check for any fresh droppings. Fresh feces are dark and soft and old ones are hard and crumbly. If your DIY mouse removal solutions failed, you can always give us a call!
