Sanitize | Disinfectant Treatment

Does your home need a Duct Sanitize | Disinfectant Treatment?

There are many key issues in a home that contribute to a dirty crawl space. Plumbing, electrical, and HVAC are the first that come to mind. But what about airflow, humidity levels, leaks, and contaminated insulation from rodents, mold, or fungi? Some of these problems can be fixed by controlling the humidity levels with a dehumidifier, removing contaminated insulation, or treating for fungi. With these performed, you still have the effects left behind. A sanitizing | disinfectant treatment application to the crawl space may still be needed if a rodent or wildlife issue is present. A simple yearly termite inspection may not tell the story of what is lurking under your home. The inspector may not be qualified to discover the need for a sanitizing | disinfectant treatment application.

    Dealing with a Dirty Crawlspace or Attic

    Sanitizing Treatment

    Crawling under your home can be a scary task. Not knowing what is living or growing under there
    is enough to hire a professional. Health-related issues have been attributed to the air a person may
    breathe from an attic or crawl space. The question is: What can you do to help reduce the risk of dirty or
    musty air? Let’s start with the easiest and first step; hire a professional. Universal has been servicing
    homes in the Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, and Newport News regions for over 20 years. We specialize in dirty crawl
    spaces and attics. Our professionals have performed hundreds of sanitizing | disinfectant treatments in
    Hampton Roads.

    What Is a Sanitizer Application?

    Disinfectant Treatment

    Sanitation involves applying an antimicrobial chemical to kill bacteria and/or airborne
    contaminants and to minimize the chance of re-contamination. However, unlike spraying your kitchen counter,
    or cleaning your bathroom sink, duct, attic, and crawl space sanitation applications must be done with care
    and only when necessary to kill excessive microbial growth. At Universal Insulation Doctor, Universal Pest
    & Termite and Universal Duct Cleaning™ our technicians take the utmost care to sanitize only in safe and
    effective ways.

    How often should you have your attic or crawl
    space sanitized? We offer a yearly service to re-apply a sanitized product using a fogging machine. This allows
    for a more complete coverage and reaches small areas that may not be visible during an inspection.

    Common problems found in a dirty crawl space include:

    • Growing fungus and mold
    • Housing animals and other pests
    • Housing Hantavirus (a pathogen carried by rodents)
    • Developing standing water or sewage
    • Wasting energy due to poor insulation
    • Poor or damaged wiring
    • Structural collapse due to wear and tear or damage

    How about my Dirty Attic?

    Your attic could be the perfect home for a rat, mouse, or even a squirrel. Hiring a professional to remove or
    eliminate the pest issue is simple enough. But what did the little critters leave behind? A rodent of any kind
    will leave their droppings and urine behind everywhere they go. When a rodent urinates in your insulation it is
    considered contaminated and should be removed. In addition, a sanitize | disinfectant treatment application should be
    performed with a fogging machine (after removal). The fogging technique will allow for a more thorough
    application and allow the product to enter small crevasses where the rodent may have traveled. Schedule an inspection here.

    Attic issues that need attention:

    • Rodents and mice: Once these pesky creatures get into your attic, they can breed and multiply to enormous
      numbers. They carry harmful bacteria and disease that can be transferred directly or indirectly and leave
      rodent feces in the attic. Furthermore, they can chew exposed wiring increasing the risk of a house fire.
    • Mold and mildew: Not only can this blight be hazardous to air quality, but it can cause structural damage as
      well, leading to rapid deterioration of structural members. If overlooked, your safety is compromised.
    • Old and outdated insulation: There’s no question that advances in insulation products has led to better
      efficiency capabilities. Additionally, insulation may need to be replaced as the result of a rodent
      infestation or excessive mold and mildew. Learn more about our attic insulation services
    • Worn out insulation: If you or previous owners used the insulated attic for storage purposes, the weight of
      the items may have flattened the insulation. Improperly installed insulation is not much better than having
      no insulation. Therefore, replacement is necessary to obtain insulation’s benefits.
