Attic Cleanup Curtails Growing Hazards!

Droppings are a telltale sign of infestation. And yes, these leavings can be dangerous. Roundworms and similar parasites are common. They are not the only risk, though. Prolonged infestations can also cause major property damage. Rodents particularly make their homes in walls. They chew through belongings and pollute insulation. Mold develops as a result. Its presence alone can jeopardize residents. Bacteria and viruses are prevalent in such fungus. Threatening for residents, mold damages the house too. Ignoring it can lead to sickness and serious property damage.

The longer residents ignore vermin the bigger such ecosystems grow. The bigger these ecosystems become the sicker residents can also become. Most people, however, lack the skills and equipment to address the problem. They are also unaware of its source. The problem becomes apparent after droppings appear in living areas.

The intensiveness of an attic cleanup depends on the duration of an infestation. Vermin breed like…vermin. What begins as a small nest can slowly become vermin city. Correcting the problem, likewise, increases in cost.

Attics can contain a host of diseases and hazards. Here are just a few:

Save Yourself from the Headache of Do it Yourself Attic Cleanup

Attic cleanup can become a complex affair. Residents must connect with a variety of contractors depending on damage:

 

Needless to mention, this is expensive. Residents typically also deal with the headache of management. Guess who’s contacting all these services? You! Guess who’s scheduling them? You! And guess who must handle misunderstandings? You!

To make matters worse, there can be complications. Relying on comprehensive solutions can be a big mistake. Pest control is usually the simplest step. Good at eliminating vermin, exterminators may be inexpert at decontamination. Ditto for construction. The simplest route is not always the most effective. Selecting experts within each field usually leads to the best results.

We offer comprehensive attic cleanup exactly for this reason. We also strive to make your experience satisfying as possible -circumstances being what they are, of course.

Attic Cleanup is Crucial for Your Health and Property!


Vermin infestations ruin your insulation, walling, and electrical connections.

Contaminated insulation is home to a number of molds and other pathogens, including toxoplasmosis, salmonella, rabies, parasites, rat bite fever, leptospirosis, plague, hanta virus, murine typhus, and eosinophilic meningitis

Houses can be overwhelmed with the odor of feces, urine, and decomposing animals.

How Much Does Rodent Infestation Cleanup Cost?

The cost of cleaning up after rodents varies depending on several factors including the extent of the infestation, the type of insulation which must be removed and replaced, and the size of the attic or crawlspace. Talking to our experts will help you understand how they can help with cleanup, sanitization, and rodent proofing. Schedule a free inspection and we’ll come to your home to provide an estimate.

Do you have rats in your attic?

Rodent traps help, but they don’t address the real issue – sealing the path that rodents use to get to your attic and crawl space.

If you’re dealing with repeated rat and mice infestations, you need attic professionals who can show you how to rat-proof your home.

Poisoning rodents work, but just like traps, it doesn’t address the real problem. Even worse, it’s not a safe option. And yes!

But don’t worry, at Attic Construction, we are experts at locating these hidden entry points and sealing them without affecting your home’s natural ventilation.

Rodents cause millions of dollars in damage to electrical systems and buildings every year.

The purpose of adding insulation is to regulate the flow of heat inside of your home, keeping the temperature in one space from leaking into the other. Inadequate insulation can result in higher energy bills along with uncomfortable temperatures in your home. Proper insulation installation in your home can dramatically reduce your heating and cooling costs. In the winter it will retain your home’s warmth, and in the summer it will keep your house cooler.

Insulation is measured by R-values. R-value measures insulation’s ability to reduce the rate of heat flow from one space to another, aka thermal resistance. The higher the “R” value, the more effective the insulation.

Attic Re-Insulation

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the average homeowner, removal and replacement of insulation can be a very difficult, labor-intensive and possibly dangerous process. Some of the risks posed to the homeowner include spreading airborne contaminants, mold spores and even disease. Rat droppings in particular, are frequently found embedded within the insulation.

The wise choice is to leave this process to one of our home insulation contractors at Attic Construction. Our staff is fully certified and heavily experienced with insulation replacement; we have the equipment and knowledge to handle any job.

Attic Construction is proud to offer complete attic space insulation removal & replacement service throughout San Diego, Escondido, Chula Vista, Ramona, Alpine, La Jolla and all of San Diego County. Many homeowners perform the removal process themselves, and when they are finished they carry the soiled insulation through their home to dispose of it, further spreading the contamination throughout their household. Our customers’ well-being is our top priority, which is why we use safe, sanitary methods of insulation removal to prevent further contamination.

 

EXCESSIVE ATTIC SPACE INSULATION

You might think that it is better to have too much insulation than too little, but excessive insulation may actually harm the overall performance of your home’s HVAC system. Over-insulation restricts airflow through the ducts and reduces your home’s ventilation capability. This, in turn, gives rise to a host of issues, such as moisture problems, and harmful mold growth. Damage and Contamination from Pests & Environment.

Insulation that is damaged is insulation that is not performing its job properly. Rodents that make their home in your attic have a tendency to destroy insulation fibers, and the droppings they leave behind cause contamination. Not only is efficiency reduced, but these contaminants and airborne particles will now be spread through air vents. Additionally, excess moisture in the environment can cause mold to grow, which creates significant health risks.

 

INSULATION REPLACEMENT

Insulation technology has improved drastically in the last couple of decades.If you have an older home, new insulation will help increase efficiency and significantly reduce your energy costs.

Our goal is to provide superior insulation removal & replacement service for all our clients throughout San Diego, Oceanside, La Mesa, El Cajon, Escondido, Chula Vista, and the rest of San Diego County.

Rodents LOVE Your Insulation

Rodents Make Attic Insulation Their Home

Using insulation contractors to properly remove insulation due to rodent contamination is crucial to a healthy living space, and is truly one of the best home improvement projects for homeowners in San Diego. Removal of contaminated insulation helps eliminate unsanitary conditions and the urine and fecal odors caused by rodents and other pests. But most importantly, it can be the solution for you and your family’s health problems, including allergies and respiratory infections. The removal of contaminated insulation must be executed with proper precautions so that the contaminated insulation, debris, rodent droppings, and urine don’t make their way into your living area and into the air. During the attic insulation removal and replacement process, we our team of insulation experts will make sure this does not happen by using the proper equipment and appropriate procedures.

  • Improve air quality in your home
  • Clean out old insulation to install new energy-saving insulation
  • Decontaminate rat and mouse infestations & prepare the attic space for rodent-proofing

 

The Attic Insulation Removal Process

Every one of our insulation removal projects starts the same way, with meticulous initial preparation. The floor and walls leading to your attic entry are covered with a durable protective plastic sheeting. Pictures, furniture, and other valuables are moved to a secure location to ensure that they are not damaged or harmed in any way. Attic insulation removal costs vary by attic size and insulating material types. The best way to get a cost estimate for your project is to schedule a free inspection with us.

 

Removal of Blown-In Insulation

Blown-In insulation (fiberglass, cellulose and rockwool) is vacuumed out of the attic into large insulation removal bags. This is done via a powerful 19 HP vacuum insulation removal machine which is placed outside of the structure. A 6’’ extended hose is then fed into the attic area where the insulation is to be removed. The insulation is then vacuumed out, along with any rodent waste and debris, leaving your attic space clean and free of rodent droppings and insulation, and ready for decontamination and rodent proofing.

 

Removal of Batting (Roll) Insulation

Batting insulation cannot be vacuumed out. Instead, the insulation must be removed by hand. As each piece is removed, it is rolled up and placed into heavy duty insulation removal bags. These bags are removed from the attic, transported offsite, and disposed of properly. We go above and beyond to ensure no attic contaminates to enter your living space, so every square foot of your home stays clean.

Next, the attic needs to go through a vacuuming process. Just like the removal process of the blown-in insulation, we use our powerful 14 HP vacuum insulation removal machine. Any remaining debris & rodent waste is then vacuumed out completely bypassing the hose between each and every one of the joists.

 

Decontamination, Rodent Proofing, and Re-Insulation

Once the insulation removal procedure is done, the attic is ready for our decontamination process, rodent proofing, and re-insulating. Call today to schedule a free estimate with our experienced technicians. We will evaluate the job and see how we can help you with your insulation removal needs!

Health Concerns for Your Family

When you have rats and mice in your attic, you’re storing much more than old Christmas boxes and clothing. You could be harboring a plethora of harmful diseases and health concerns. Such as:

 

Doing a new insulation installation on your attic space doesn’t just improve your air quality, it will also make your home more energy-efficient, saving you money on energy bills in the future. Just remember, when you remove old insulation, you’re benefitting your family’s health now and in the future.

Air Duct Cleaning & Repair Services in San Diego

All buildings with air conditioning or forced-air heating systems have a ductwork system made of supply and return ducts. Supply ducts convey air that has been conditioned to your living space, and return ducts move the air back to your AC system for reconditioning. After years of use, these ducts can fill with dust and debris, causing a lower indoor air quality than before. To keep your heating and cooling systems running in optimal condition, you’ll need regular air duct cleaning and maintenance. 

When to Call an Air Duct Professional

As a rule of thumb, if your ducts have stayed for years without maintenance, they need to be inspected by a reputable repair firm. Sometimes, you may even need an air duct replacement if your systems aren’t working properly. In addition, if you note any of the following in your home, call us and claim your first time, free inspection:

The Cost of Defects in Your Ductwork

1. HIGH ENERGY BILLS

Well, ducts do a great job keeping our attic cool during the hot summers, but according to information given by the U.S. Department of Energy, “In typical buildings, 20% to 30% of the air that’s carried through the ducts system is lost through poorly connected ducts, leaks, and holes in the system.” What’s worse; leaks and holes in the duct system contaminate your indoor air with toxins, dust, and mold, posing serious health hazards. These contaminants also cause your air conditioning unit to work harder, resulting in a decrease in the useful life of the unit and high power bills. In some of these cases, the homeowner may need a full air duct replacement. 

Attic Construction is a full-services attic care firm offering air ducts repair services, and radiant barrier installation to both homeowners and businesses. Request a free inspection today!

2. HEALTH PROBLEMS
Allergic reactions are common health problems caused by leaky ductwork systems. Others include headaches, stuffy nose, and the general cold symptoms which together make sleeping a big challenge. Serious lung problems can also arise if you consistently inhale the mold coming to your living space through a leaky duct system.

Benefits of Investing in Air Duct Replacement or Repair

A well designed and properly maintained duct system makes your building energy efficient, more comfortable and safer. Here are the specific benefits of investing in professional air ducts replacement services:

1. IMPROVED AIR QUALITY
Fumes from garden and household chemicals, dust, and insulation particles can find their way in and out of your defective duct system, aggravating allergy and asthma problems. Ducts repair improves your living space air by lowering the risk of contaminants finding their way and circulating in your home.

2. MORE COMFORT
Air ducts repair and sealing alleviate common comfort concerns such as rooms that are too cold and/or too hot during the winter.

3. SAFETY
Appliances in your home such as water heaters, clothes dryers, furnaces, and gas appliances release combustible gases such as carbon monoxide via their ventilation systems. With a leaky duct work, back drafting – a process that draws these gases back to your home, rather than letting them escape to the outdoor – may occur. Air ducts replacing ductwork in attics lowers this risk.

4. SAVE MONEY
A ducts repair can save you up to 20% of your energy bills. It can also allow you to use a smaller cooling and heating system meaning more saving.

5. GO GREEN
The energy we use in our home is sometimes generated by the burning of fossil fuels in power plants, which creates smog, climate change, and acid rain. In simple words, the less energy you consume in your home, the lower is your carbon fingerprint. By investing in regular Air duct repair and duct cleaning, you will reduce the energy required to comfortably cool your attic, and thus, be a great friend of Mother Nature.

How to Boost Your Duct System Performance – DIY Tips

San Diego Radiant Barrier Installation

If you have ever entered into your home or car after leaving it in the direct summer sun for a few hours, you know first-hand exactly how hot it feels. It gets super-hot, and it may take your air conditioning unit quite some time to cool the air.

So, why does your car get so hot compared to the air outside? It’s because of solar heat from the sun that keeps on accumulating in your car. Radiant barriers for attics can do just that for your home. We are professional radiant barrier attic installers serving San Diego county.

During the hot summer days, your attic, just like your car’s interior, can get uncomfortably hot. As the temperature rises to 110, 130, 140 degrees or more, the air in your home heats up intensely. Consequently, your home cooling system works harder, your power bill spikes, and you end up paying a lot more. A better alternative is to invest in a radiant barrier installation.

This article will teach you everything you need to know about radiant barrier attic installation, but first things first, radiant barriers are materials designed to help keep your attic cool. They deliver the same benefit as power attic ventilators, only that they go to the root cause rather than treating the symptoms.

The attic gets hot because the radiant energy from the sun beats down on it all day long. The sun emits heat energy in the form of electromagnetic radiation (EM). Once the electromagnetic radiation hits the earth or any other surface, any of the following three things happen:

 

The percentage of the EM radiation that goes to any of these 3 categories depends on the properties of the materials it hits and the wave length of the specific radiation. Radiant barriers installation tries to reduce part 3; the amount of the electromagnetic radiation that is absorbed into your roof.

Initially, the heat accumulates in your roof (shingles in most residential buildings) then it follows the second rule of thermodynamics – it looks for cooler places, so it begins to conduct down via your roofing material till it gets to the bottom of the roofing surface. It’s then transferred through convention into your attic. Most roofing materials, particularly OSB and plywood, are good radiators so everything in your attic heats up too. The diagram below describes this process:

Radiant Barriers

 

How your attic heats up can be described in 4 simple steps:

 

So, the primary sources of heat flow in an attic is solar radiation, which warms/heats up any substances it finds – ductwork, framing, Christmas decorations, insulation, etc. This is one reason radiant barrier  attic insualtion installation is better than attic ventilators installation. The latter tries to cool the air (treating the symptoms), but the air is only hot because all the surrounding materials are hot. On the contrary, and rightly so, attic barrier installation reduces the attic temperature by going after the root cause – the solar radiation that blasts the attic from the downside of the rafters and roof deck.

 

Effectiveness of Radiant Barriers

A radiant heat barrier attic installation delivers optimal heat reduction when it’s perpendicular to the solar radiation that hits it. Also, the higher the temperature gradient between the opposite sides of the radiant barrier, the higher the reduction benefits that a barrier can deliver.

It’s good to note that radiant barriers installation are more effective in hot regions that in cooler climates, particular if the attic has cooling air ducts. Research shows that done well, radiant barrier installation saves between 5% and 10% of your energy bills when used in a warm, sunny climate.This can significantly improve the energy efficiency of your home. What’s more, the low heat gain may eradicate the need for an elaborate air conditioning system, thus, saving you more on energy costs once again. 

A quick note: In cool climates, it’s normally cost effective to install additional layers of thermal insulation compared to installing radiant barriers.

 

Types of Radiant Barriers

Typical radiant barriers are made of materials with high heat reflective ability, commonly aluminum foil, which is applied to both or one side of the substrate materials such as plastic films, orient strand board, cardboard, Kraft paper and/or air infiltration barrier materials. Some radiant barriers are fiber-reinforced to boost durability and ease of handling.

 

Radiant Barrier Installation

The effectiveness of radiant barriers depends largely on proper installation. If you opt for a DIY radiant barrier installation, carefully read and adhere to the manufacturers’ instructions and/or guide and safety precautions, and confirm your local fire and building codes. You can also visit the reflective insulation trade association; they offer useful radiant barrier installation tips.

Note: It’s best to use a certified radiant barrier installation specialist. Give us a call, and claim your free, first time consultation.

It’s also easy to install radiant barriers in a new home, but it’s also possible to incorporate them into existing buildings, particularly if they come with an open attic. If you want to save on energy costs and improve the quality of your home, consider doing barrier insulation for your attic. This service will not only give your energy savings in the long run, but it will also help to regulate the temperatures throughout your home and keep your heating and cooling systems running in optimal condition.

How a Dirty Crawl Spaces Impacts Your Home

At Attic Construction, we know that you need to understand why it’s beneficial to invest in a crawl space cleanup. A dirty crawl space impacts your home in 5 major ways.

1. POOR AIR QUALITY

A dirty crawl space is a cozy haven for allergens, mold, and all sorts of pests. Once moisture gets into your dirty crawl space, it facilitates the growth of mildew and mold. Also, it attracts more pests and insects into your home.

Since some of the air in your living space comes from the crawl space, a dirty crawl space consistently throws allergens, germs, and mycotoxins into your living space.

2. HIGH ENERGY BILLS

Because about 40% of the air in your home comes from the crawlspace, if your crawl space is dirty and cold, chances are your air conditioner will have a hard time heating your home. The end result is always drafty rooms, cold floors, and high energy bills.

4. PEST INFESTATIONS

Pests love warm spaces that are dark and infrequently visited and have quick access to food. This makes your dirty crawl space the ideal habitat for ants, spiders, roaches, squirrels, mice, rats, hornets and even snakes.
