Attic Cleaning & Restoration

An attic that contains old or contaminated insulation is a potential health issue contributing to asthma or allergy problems.

We specializes in attic insulation restoration. Our process is not just to remove and replace attic insulation but to also perform a sanitize application. This sanitizing treatment is very important if there has been a rodent or wildlife infestation.

We often see attics that are strewn with animal feces from squirrel, raccoon, bat and mice infestations. Sometimes it is a home improvement project which warrants removing and replacing the insulation in an attic.

Other times it is something as simple as old blown insulation trickling out of cracks around light fixtures and attic doors.
