After years of attic cleaning, we believe there are no unsolvable problems. Nor unanswerable questions, for that matter! Don’t believe it? Have a look at our FAQs below.
How often should rodent traps be set out?
Rodent traps should be placed whereverthere has been obvious activity. In most cases, more rats and mice are caught on the first night when traps are first set out than on any other night. Our experts will continue setting out traps until several days go by and no more are caught. We also advise sealing any openings where rodents can enter your home or the problem will begin all over again. Call our team for more information and to schedule a service call.
Do you install radiant barriers?
Absolutely! Our professionals can get a radiant barrier put in your attic in no time, and you'll feel confident that it was properly installed too! It's important that the entire interior of the roof is covered, and the correct side is facing upward, otherwise it won't achieve the desired effect of bouncing the sun's rays away from your home to keep things cooler. We'll take care of it for you and ensure that it's all correctly put in before you know it!
Can I decontaminate my own attic?
This would be highly inadvisable, as the sterilization spray that is necessary to thoroughly and properly eradicate all the bacteria should only be handled by experts wearing proper safety equipment and who know how to safely apply the spray to ensure that all risk of infection is taken care of. If performed by someone who doesn't know what they're doing, not only could spots be missed that would allow the viruses to linger, but it's a health risk to whomever is handling the chemicals.
Can't I clean my attic myself?
While it's certainly possible for you to clean your own attic, if it's been a while since you've had it cleaned it may be best to allow professionals to handle it. If you have asthma or other breathing conditions, it's especially important to allow those with the proper equipment to take care of it for you, otherwise the dust could pose a health risk. If not safely sucked up, it can also pollute the air of your home heavily and lower the air quality.
