Attic Restoration Central Mountains

Attics are usually used to store things and they don't get a lot of traffic. It's not unusual for them to accumulate a lot of dust and dirt over time. Animals can find their new homes in attics. AAAC Wildlife Removal can help you remove any evidence of a wildlife infestation in your attic insulation. Our team will take out all animal waste from your attic and install new insulation to restore it to its original condition

How We Restore Your Attic

Even though they cannot chew through insulation, pests can still tear it apart. The insulation material becomes much more than just bedding. After all, the animals that tear down your attic’s barriers can also make a home there and leave behind their contaminants like urine or feces. With less insulation integrity these areas allow air to enter or escape, so you are losing money! Here are the steps we take to when performing attic restoration:

Scoop out Larger Feces Clumps

The first step in any attic restoration project involves removing larger feces from the attic. This can be done using tools and containers that are secure. To remove the feces on the walls and ceilings we use a long-handled, flexible tool. If the droppings are dry or stuck on hard surfaces we will soak them in water, and then use a wire brush for scraping them off.

AAAC uses a special tool with an extendable handle to climb on top of your house and reach the areas where squirrels or raccoons leave their droppings. Technicians may have to remove large amounts of droppings from the rafters or eaves in order to safely vacuum it out.

Vacuum Small Feces

Next is to clean out the attic of small rodent feces pellets by vacuuming. This is the best way of getting rid of small rodent feces from an attic. AAAC uses a specialized machine equipped with a long enough tube that can reach every corner of your attic. It has an extra-long, powerful vacuum tube, high-speed suction, and HEPA filter that removes animal hair and droppings. AAAC will use a special brush to reach corners and other areas around the roof.

Small feces in an attic can be hard to see with the naked eye, so AAAC uses UV light to locate them. The UV light will create black dots on surfaces where feces have been left by animals, such as rats, bats, and raccoons.

Air Duct Cleaning & Repair

AAAC Wildlife Control also offers air duct restoration and repair services to remove animal hair, droppings, and urine from the ductwork. It can be difficult to clean the inside of the conduits but AAAC Wildlife Removal uses a special tool that can remove all debris from ducts. Once the cleaning is complete, we can apply a disinfectant to the ducts in order to kill any remaining bacteria and viruses.

Decontaminate the Attic

The most important part of an attic restoration project after removing the critters is the decontamination of the attic of rodent feces and urine. This is an extremely important part of any attic restoration project. It’s done in order to protect your family against microbial pathogens which could be harmful if inhaled.

AAAC Wildlife Removal uses a UV light to identify areas that may have been infested with rodent droppings. The technicians will then spray a disinfectant spray on the affected surfaces to kill any microorganisms from the animal feces.

AAAC Wildlife Removal will fog the attic with a fine mist to kill microorganisms that may be present in animal feces. They use an electric sprayer to make a mist of microscopic drops that is invisible to the naked eye. As the droplets evaporate, they produce a chemical residue that’s toxic to microorganisms such as algae, molds, bacteria, and viruses.

Drying is an important part of the attic restoration process as any moisture left behind can cause mold growth. AAAC might use a dehumidifier in order to dry out the insulation and wood attic. This helps to prevent mold growth in the attic space during re-insulation.

Technicians will then remove insulation and install new insulation to complete the restoration process. To avoid causing damage to adjacent areas and leaving a mess, the insulation must be carefully removed. Insulation is normally wrapped around rafters or joists, so be careful when pulling them, lest they cause damage to some of the wooden structures.

Insulation also often contains mold spores and other potentially dangerous materials, which can be released into the air when the insulation is removed. Our technicians wear masks to protect them from any hazardous airborne particles entering the air-ducts.

After removing the insulation, technicians will then place new ones. This insulation should be cut to fit snugly around rafters, joists, and other structures. Although cutting things close can lead to some leftover insulation. The technicians also use masking tape and a duct sealer to keep everything in place during installation.

What is full attic restoration?

Attic restoration is a process to restore the function and appearance of an attic. Attic restoration can include insulation, cleaning up waste, and decontamination.

Attics typically lose their ability to insulate when they become dirty or dusty from accumulated dust, animal droppings, or ice accumulation. This loss of insulation allows more energy to be lost through your home than if the insulation had been left intact. Fans are used to dry interior areas affected by moisture, such as bathrooms or closets that have suffered water damage.

How do you disinfect an attic?

Take out soiled insulation then disinfect the attic’s surface with an ultraviolet sterilizer or disinfectant. Finally, clean the surfaces to kill bacteria. To prevent reinfection, it is also important to clean all surfaces that have been in contact with contaminated material.

In order to disinfect the area safely and efficiently, you must first remove insulation. A powerful suction system is used to remove harmful substances from surfaces like wood joists and rafters. The biocides wash-down kills any remaining mold and leaves behind antimicrobial compounds that will prevent future mold and mildew growth. Finally, the area will be sterilized by light sterilization using UV lights similar to those used for hospitals.
