How to chose the best attic insulation

    If you answered yes to any of the questions above, an attic abatement / restoration / remediation is highly recommended. All of these situations are the main reasons why a home owner may need an attic restoration. We will cover each unique attic problem below. But first, allow us to explain exactly what we do. Our attic restoration process is a four part process outlined below:


Step 1 - Insulation Removal: The first major step is to remove the existing insulation from the attic. This is done using specialized industrial strength insulation vacuums, along with other specialized attic equipment. Our equipment safely extracts and collects the old insulation material through large hoses that run directly from the attic into giant insulation bags. The best part about hiring professionals with the proper knowledge and equipment is that we are able to remove dirty, contaminated insulation without anything passing through the home. Additional care is taken to ensure a thorough removal, including insulation present in hard-to-reach areas and corners.


Step 2 - Thorough Cleaning: After the insulation is removedthe attic space undergoes a secondary cleaning process. This includes removing everything that wasn't collected during the insulation removal process, such as construction debris, rodent droppings, raccoon feces, nesting materials, dead bugs, and any other contaminants present in the attic.


The goal is to create a clean environment or a blank slate for the next stages of the restoration. We feel it's important to note that this step is often over looked by most insulation companies and this is why it's important to hire an attic restoration company for your attic abatement or remediation project, rather than an insulation company that only focuses on removing insulation, as most will not perform that secondary cleaning. We take great pride in our position as industry leaders, committed to providing exceptional service. As part of our expertise, we guarantee the thorough removal of up to 99% of all items and contaminants present in your attic.


Step 3 - Disinfecting the Attic: Our attic sanitation process involves the application of hospital-grade disinfectants in the form of a fog. Fogging the disinfectant ensures thorough coverage and sanitation of the attic air space, as well as its surfaces. This specialized treatment effectively eradicates any lingering bacteria, viruses, fungus and/or odors that might have been caused by rodent infestations, mold proliferation, water damage, musty attic smells, or other contaminants present in the attic, leaving it clean, fresh, and free from harmful pathogens.


Step 4 - Installing Your New Insulation: With the attic now cleaned, disinfected, and properly prepared, new insulation is installed. After 15 years in the industry, we have chosen blown in white fiberglass as the superior attic insulation for our customer's attics. Our team of expert insulation installers utilizes state-of-the-art insulation blowing machines, known for their industrial strength, in combination with meticulous insulation techniques. This approach guarantees uniform coverage and optimizes energy efficiency to its fullest potential. Please click here to learn more details about the type of insulation we recommend.







Old, Dirty, Stinky Attics: The biggest issue we see with attics is when insulation gets very old, because it begins to break down, not only losing effectiveness but becoming a health hazard! When old insulation particles begin to breakdown they become airborne. This typically begins to happen around 30 years. 

However, the real problem begins if there are holes in your air ducts, because these airborne particles get into your air conditioning vents and start floating all over your home creating dust. That means you could potentially be breathing in fiberglass, which is obviously VERY aggravating to the lungs. *If you or a loved one are suffering from unexplained health issues, itching, sensitivities, aggravated asthma or allergies, or mysterious breathing problems you may want to consider if your old insulation and/or damaged air ducts could be a potential source of the problem.






Another source of health issues from contaminated attic insulation is the situation of rodents or wildlife gaining access to your attic. These animals make your attic their home, and unfortunately that also means their bathroom. These animals are not polite house guests. Rather than being considerate and using the bathroom in one corner of your attic, they're likely to leave their urine and feces mess all over every inch of your attic's insulation.


Then to be sure they've really outstayed their welcome, they'll chew holes in your A/C ducts, opening up your home to a fresh, daily dose of breathable bacteria. Rats and raccoons both carry a variety of bacteria in their feces, making a contaminated attic a very serious health hazard. Raccoon poop in the attic is such a serious health issue that some homeowner's insurance policies will pay for your attic restoration, clean up, and exclusion services (and we will work with your insurance company to get your claim approved. Please note - insurance will not cover any issues with rats.)
