Wild animals like raccoons, skunks, and bats often find their way into attics. Attic insulation can get infested with animal waste which is very bad for your health. Fortunately, there are professionals (like us!) who offer attic restoration services to remove all traces of wildlife from an attic after removing any bat guano or other kinds of droppings that may have accumulated.
How We Restore Your Attic
Wild animals invading your attic will surely do a number on your insulation. They will chew and tear it to make a nest. They’ll also leave massive amounts of waste behind. If you are lucky, they’ll just get your attic dirty and not tear it apart entirely. Here’s how our team at AAAC Wildlife Removal will restore your attic:
Scoop Out the Larger Feces Clumps
We first all larger feces left by the animals. We’ll use a special long-handled tool to scrape the droppings on walls and ceilings. We’ll then soak the dried-out ones on hard surfaces with water so we can easily scrape them up.
Our technicians use a tool that will let us reach the highest areas of your home like the rafters and eaves. Raccoons and squirrels will often leave huge amounts of feces in these hard-to-reach areas.
Vacuum Small Feces
The next step in the restoration project is to vacuum smaller feces. This is the safest way to remove the tiny pellets of waste that will surely be stuck in the nooks and crannies of your attic insulation. We use a specialized machine with long enough tube extensions to reach the deepest part of your attic.
We utilize an extra-long, high-speed suction, HEPA-filtered hose that will allow us to reach places like the corners or hard-to-reach areas near the roofline. Additionally, we use UV light to find fecal matter hidden in these dark spaces. The UV light will create black dots on surfaces where feces are present.
Air Duct Cleaning & Repair
Aside from attic cleaning, our specialists at AAAC Wildlife Removal also provide ductwork cleaning and repair. This process is integral to a complete restoration project. We will clean your air ducts and vents to remove any animal hair or dust that could have been left behind by the animals.
AAAC Wildlife Removal uses a specialized tool for this purpose. Once the ducts are cleaned thoroughly, we will disinfect them to make sure there are no viruses or bacterias left behind.
Decontaminate the Attic
After removing wild animals, one of the most important parts of the restoration project is the decontamination process. Animals may have left feces and urine throughout your attic, which is why it must be disinfected thoroughly.
This is very important as it will ensure the safety of your family. Wild animals can carry different types of diseases and parasites that can easily spread to humans. We use industrial-grade disinfectants to kill all germs, viruses, and bacteria.
AAAC Wildlife Removal also uses a fogging machine to kill any existing fungus or mildew that may be present in the attic. The electric atomizer sprayer we use creates a cloud of microscopic mist that will reach every nook and cranny of the attic.
Evaporating droplets will leave a chemical residue that will kill algae, molds, and mildew that could have developed during the animal infestation.
Drying is a vital part of the process because moisture can lead to the growth of fungi and mold in your attic. We use a dehumidifier machine after we’ve fogged, disinfected, and dried the entire attic. This way it can dry out completely so that there’s no chance of mold and mildew developing.
Full Attic Insulation Replacement
As a final step in the restoration process, our technicians will perform a full insulation replacement. We will replace existing insulation with brand new ones. The old insulation must be removed carefully so that they don’t mess up adjacent insulation materials.
Mold spores and other potentially dangerous allergens can be found in the insulation. These can be aerosolized and released into the air. These spores, when inhaled, can cause serious health problems like pneumonia and bronchitis. This is why our technicians wear full-body suits and breathing masks to protect themselves.
Our technicians are experts at removing insulation and installing new materials. They will make sure to leave your home with a clean, debris-free attic that is ready for use again.
What is Full Attic Restoration?
Attic restoration is the process of restoring the look and function of an attic. Attics can become infested with nuisance wildlife like bats, raccoons, and squirrels that will cause much damage to the insulation over time.
Damaged insulation will decrease the effectiveness of your air conditioning and heating system, which will put more strain on these appliances. This will increase the heating and cooling costs, which is why it’s important to take care of the problem as soon as possible.
The restoration process will restore your attic to its original condition, which means your home will be more energy-efficient than ever before.
The restoration procedure involves insulation, decontamination, and animal waste removal. Attics over time become dirty from accumulated dust and animal droppings, causing them to lose their ability to insulate efficiently, leading to energy loss.
How Do You Disinfect an Attic?
Attic disinfection usually involves removing soiled insulation, washing surfaces, and spraying disinfectants. The soiled insulation will be removed carefully ensuring no contamination of other materials in the attic.
Removal of the old insulation is necessary to stop the spread of disease, which is why it must be done properly. Animal waste can carry different types of viruses and bacteria that could infect humans.
After insulation removal has been completed, disinfectants will be sprayed throughout the attic to kill any remaining germs or spores left behind by animals’ droppings. A biocides washdown will be conducted to kill any germs that may have survived the disinfection process. It will prevent future mold growth in the attic.
Sterilization is the final step in the disinfection process. We use ultra-violet light equipment that will guarantee any remaining germs and viruses are killed. This is the same ultraviolet light used by hospitals to sterilize equipment. Our technicians use this process to ensure your home is truly habitable again once the disinfection process is finished.
