Attic Cleaning, Insulation Removal, and New Insulation Installation

Most people hardly think about their attics, except during the holidays when they’re retrieving their festive decorations. A cluttered attic means more than a mess; it attracts pests and makes your entire Seattle home an unhealthy environment.

What Does the Attic Have to do with Pest Control?

Our Croach® pest control technicians often find insect and rodent infestations originating in the attic. That's why we’ve added this service for our pest control customers in Seattle, WA area communities.

Pests in the Attic

Rodents and other pests gain access to your dark, quiet attic through even the smallest of cracks or holes. Once inside, your attic’s warm and dry insulation provides a perfect hiding place for them. And, in the process of nesting, the pests chew electrical wiring, cause structural damage, and destroy your insulation. There's a very strong connection between attic health and pest control.

Let's look at the five steps of attic cleaning, restoring and insulation installation in an attic.

Step 1: Attic Clean-out

The first step is to clean out your attic. Remove all the contents and assess what you want to keep, give away, or throw out. De-cluttering is an important part of pest management in all areas of your home.

Step 2: Insulation Removal

Once the attic is empty, we remove the old, decayed or damaged insulation. Next, we sanitize, disinfect, and deodorize your attic with eco-friendly, non-toxic cleaning solutions.

Step 3: Pest Inspection

After removing the old insulation, our technicians inspect the attic for further evidence of pests. They may find nests, rat or mouse droppings, chewed wires, or gnawed drywall, which are all indications of a Seattle rodent infestation. Small holes in wood and fine dust particles are signs of insects like drywood termites.

Aside from the fact that these pests threaten the integrity of your home, they often carry harmful bacteria and viruses that put the health of your family in jeopardy. In addition, pests in the attic make noises that keep you awake at night, and often emit foul odors.

Step 4: Pest Exclusion

After our techs remove the evidence of an infestation, it’s time for non-chemical pest control called exclusion. Exclusion is the process of closing gaps and blocking entry points to prevent pests from re-entering your property. As necessary, if we need to catch rodents or other live critters, we set traps.

Step 5: Attic Insulation Installation

Once the proper preparations are complete, we are ready to apply the loose fill or blown-in insulation. One of the most important benefits of our blown-in attic insulation is that it fills and seals the areas around pipes, beams, and other spaces where pests get in.

 

Ongoing Pest Control

It’s a good idea to inspect your attic every 2-3 years to catch or prevent small problems before they become expensive repairs. Ongoing pest control services makes your home less attractive to new pests and wildlife while preventing infestations.
