Is your attic's insulation over 25 years old?
Has your attic insulation been contaminated by rats, wildlife, water, or mold?
Do you feel like your insulation isn't working as effectively as it should?
Does your house have a musty, old attic smell?
Does your attic insulation look like dirt, dust, crumbly and/or dry rotted?
Do you suspect your attic could be making you sick? Do you feel like your home's air quality is affecting your health? Do you feel sick when you're home and well when you're away from home?
Did your house fail inspection due to the condition of your attic?
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. Please see pictures below for examples of old, dirty, contaminated insulation that needed to be removed from the attic.
Step 2 - Thorough Cleaning: Discover the Florida Attic Pros difference! This is the step that separates us from all other attic companies. After the insulation is removed, the 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 and replacing 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 contaminants present in your attic. Please see pictures below for examples of our pristinely clean attics.
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. Blown in white fiberglass ranks highest for energy efficiency and carries a Green Guard Gold Certification for air quality. Our team of expert insulation installers utilizes state-of-the-art insulation blowing machines that offer uniform coverage which optimizes energy efficiency to its fullest potential.

Top Reasons for Needing an Attic Remediation:
#1 - Old, Dirty, Stinky Attics: The biggest issue we see with attics is when insulation gets old. Just like we remodel our kitchens and bathrooms, we also need to restore our attics. This is recommended every 25 to 30 years, because the original insulation in the attic begins to break down due to constant exposure to heat and moisture. This causes the insulation to lose effectiveness and it also can potentially become a health hazard, especially for people with allergies, lowered immune response, asthma, and/or sensitivities. This is because when old insulation particles begin to breakdown they become airborne.
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 and 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 attic could be making you sick. Old insulation and/or damaged air ducts could be a potential source of the problem.
#2 - Rodent and Wildlife Contamination: Another source of health issues from attic insulation is the situation of rodents or wildlife gaining access to your attic and contaminating your insulation. 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.)
#3 - Water Damage from Roof Leaks and Hurricanes:
If you have experienced water damage from roof leaks or hurricanes in your attic, it is crucial to address the situation promptly to prevent further damage and potential health hazards. Here are some reasons why you might need to remove and replace attic insulation after roof leaks and water damage:
Mold and Mildew Growth: Moisture from water leaks can create a conducive environment for mold and mildew growth. Attic insulation can trap and hold moisture, allowing mold and mildew to thrive. Mold spores can spread throughout your attic, leading to health issues, including respiratory problems, allergies, and asthma.
Structural Damage: Prolonged exposure to water can weaken the structural integrity of your attic, including wooden beams and joists. Over time, this can compromise the overall stability of your home.
Insulation Saturation: Insulation loses its effectiveness when it becomes saturated with water. Wet insulation has a significantly reduced R-value (insulation's ability to resist heat flow), making it less energy-efficient and potentially leading to increased energy costs.
Odor and Air Quality: Water-damaged insulation can emit musty odors, making your living space uncomfortable. Additionally, it can lead to poor indoor air quality as the odors and contaminants from the damaged insulation circulate through the ventilation system.
Electrical Hazards: If water comes into contact with electrical wiring in the attic, it can create electrical hazards. Damp insulation can conduct electricity, increasing the risk of short circuits and fires.
Future Damage Prevention: Replacing the damaged insulation will help prevent future issues caused by compromised insulation, such as reduced energy efficiency, mold growth, and potential damage to the attic and roof.
Insurance Requirements: If you plan to file an insurance claim for the water damage, your insurer may require you to remove and replace the affected insulation as part of the remediation process. You may also request that your adjuster add insulation removal and replacement to your claim if you've had water damage to your attic.
Given the potential hazards associated with water damage and the complexity of attic insulation removal and replacement, it is advisable to seek professional assistance. We're experienced insulation contractors and attic remediation specialists who can handle the task safely and effectively.
