Cleaning the attic sounds like something easy to do that does not require the help of a professional. However, in most cases, it is actually complicated to do and, therefore, requires the help of a cleaning crew. It is complicated because it often involves heavy lifting, working in a hot and dusty environment, rodent removal, and protecting oneself against toxic insulation.
CAPITAL INSULATION RESTORATION has experienced technicians and workmen who can expertly clean up your attic regardless of how it looks like right now.
Below are some of the reasons why you should consider getting expert attic cleaning services instead of cleaning up your attic yourself.
1. Water Damage
A leaking roof, plumbing system, or severe weather can cause water damage in your attic. And although everything may look dry up there, you never know how bad the damage is inside the beams. This means that it is nearly impossible for you to tell if your attic is structurally safe. For this reason, you should get expert attic cleaning services as the companies have experts who will be able to assess and do things professionally without posing any danger to you or to themselves.
2. Rodent Removal
If your attic needs to be cleaned then it probably has rodents and other wildlife in it. And if that is the case then you need professionals who can safely remove the wildlife for you. Why? Because removing rodents is not easy and once rodents are removed, the places where they were hiding must be thoroughly disinfected using the right chemicals to kill any organisms in their feces and urine that could cause diseases such as salmonella, leptospirosis, and Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome. Moreover, if you didn’t know, dead wildlife is considered toxic and, therefore, should be handled properly.
CAPITAL INSULATION RESTORATION offers wildlife removal, insulation replacement, and attic cleaning services. So if you want professionals who can handle rodent removal, contact CAPITAL INSULAITON RESTORATION now.
3. Toxic Asbestos Insulation
Old homes built prior to 1985 have asbestos insulation. Although good for insulation, the material was later linked to cancer, and to chronic respiratory diseases because its fibers get airborne quickly when it is disturbed resulting in infection upon inhalation.
While some people attempt to remove toxic asbestos insulation on their own, it is not advisable. There is a need to use the right equipment and skills to remove asbestos insulation and to prevent the material from spreading its contamination to other areas. Do not do it if you do not have the right equipment and skills.
CAPITAL INSULATION RESTORATION has got skilled technicians and the right safety equipment to remove asbestos insulation and replace it with non-toxic insulation at a fair price.
4. Installing New Insulation
Attic cleaning is hard. What is even harder is replacing old attic insulation with new insulation. This is especially true if you have no expertise. And it is the reason why people contact professional attic cleaning service companies such as CAPITAL INSULATION RESTORATION Ottawa to help them clean their attics and replace their attic insulation.
