  • Rodent infestation and contamination
  • Molds and mildews due to moisture buildup
  • Air leaks that allows the movement of heat from the living space to the attic

It is important that attic cleaning is performed to remove these substances that contaminate the attic insulation.  There are many reasons why you should do attic cleaning. These reasons may include:

  • Inadequate insulation is costly. It will fail to minimize the heat transfer during winter and summer.
  • Rodent infestation may bring detrimental diseases. Some diseases are airborne due to dust of rodent urine and feces.
  • Moisture leads to molds and mildews that may cause bad odors and may also lead to wood rotting.
  • Voids in attic insulation may render it ineffective.

The attic is warm, and that makes it a comfort zone for rodents to dwell and breed in it. Such infestation of rodents is harmful to your home because of the filth and disease that rodents bring with them. The home will be subjected to rodents’ urine, dust and feces. An infestation by rodents will require attic cleaning. You can’t just clean the insulation. Eliminating the existing rodent entry point is crucial to prevent future rodent infestation.
