How we restore your attic
Although they won’t be able to chew through insulation, the pests can easily tear it. Insulating material is more than just bedding. Animals that tear at your attic’s walls will make their homes in these holes, leaving behind their own contaminants such as urine and feces. You’ll also lose money because these areas have less insulation integrity. Here are some steps to follow when attic restoration is completed.
Scoop out Larger Feces Clumps
A project to restore an attic is started by removing large feces, which are usually left behind by pests. To get rid of the droppings from walls and ceilings, we use a long-handled device. We soak any dropped materials that are stuck to hard surfaces or dried in water and then remove them using a wire brush.
AAAC uses a special tool that can be extended to reach the highest areas of your house where squirrels, raccoons, and other animals often leave feces. It is possible that large quantities of droppings are needed to be removed from rafters and the eaves by the technicians.
Vacuum Small Feces
Next, remove any rodent feces pellets from an attic. This method is the best for removing large amounts of small feces left behind by rodents such as rats, mice, and other rodents. AAAC uses a specialized machine equipped with a long enough tube that can reach every corner of your attic. It is equipped with an extra-long vacuum tube, high-velocity suction, and a HEPA filter to remove hair and droppings from insulation surfaces and other surfaces. AAAC uses a brush attachment to clean small droppings. It is made for tight spaces like corners and areas close to 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 show black dots where there are feces from animals like rats, bats, or raccoons.
Air Duct Cleaning & Repair
AAAC Wildlife Control offers duct repair and restoration services. This includes removing 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 this is done, we can spray a disinfectant on the ducts to eliminate any remaining bacteria or viruses that may have been left behind by bats, rats, raccoons, or squirrels.
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 a crucial part of the job. It helps to keep your family safe from potential microbial pathogens.
AAAC Wildlife Removal uses UV light to determine if an area is contaminated by rodent droppings. After cleaning the affected areas and surfaces, technicians will use a disinfectant spray. This kills any microorganisms found in animal feces.
AAAC Wildlife Removal will fog an attic with fine mist to kill any microorganisms from the animal droppings. An electric atomizer sprayer is used to create a cloud of tiny droplets that are invisible to humans. Droplets that are evaporating leave behind chemical residues that are toxic to microorganisms.
The drying process is important in the attic restoration service because it eliminates any remaining moisture, which could promote mold growth if left untreated. AAAC may use an attic dehumidifier to eliminate any moisture remaining in insulation and wood. This also helps prevent mold growth during re-insulation of the attic space.
Full Attic Insulation Replacement
To complete the restoration service, our technicians will remove the old insulation and then put in a new one. The old insulation must be removed carefully to prevent ruining adjacent areas or leaving a mess behind. Insulation is wrapped around joists or rafters, so you must be careful not to pull it too hard.
Mold spores or other potentially dangerous substances are also common in insulation. To prevent inhalation of these hazardous particles, our technicians wear masks.
The technicians will remove the old insulation and install the new insulation. This insulation must be cut to fit and fit snugly around rafters and joists. 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 that restores the function and appearance to an attic. Attic restoration can include insulation, cleaning up waste, and decontamination.
When attics become dirty from animal droppings, accumulated dust or ice, they lose their ability to insulate. This causes more heat loss through your home than it would if the insulation was intact. The decontamination process begins with using fans throughout interior areas that have been affected by moisture such as closets or bathrooms where there has been leakage from water carrying away dirt and dust.
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.
It begins by removing insulation in order to perform safe and effective disinfecting. The use of a strong suction system is also necessary for attic restoration to remove any mold or bacteria from surfaces such wood joists or roof rafters. After the suction process is finished, a biocides washdown is used to kill any remaining mold. The antimicrobial compound also prevents mold and mildew from growing in the future. The final step is light sterilization, which disinfects the area using ultraviolet lights similar to those used in hospitals.
