These last couple of years have made everyone more aware of the importance of excellent hygiene in order to stay healthy. While hand washing and keeping a distance are a good start, you should also think about healthy home upgrades and simple tips for a healthy home.
Great residential air quality is key if you want to strengthen your immune system while avoiding diseases and allergies.
Here are some of the services that Atticare provides that will protect the health of your family.
Attic And Crawl Space Cleaning
Is there an unpleasant smell coming from your attic or crawl space? If you can smell it, you’re breathing in whatever toxin it contains too.
Both attics and crawl spaces can suffer from dampness and rodent waste, which are all terrible for indoor air quality and your health. If you have cracks in your attic or crawl space, it means that contaminated air can easily flow around the rest of your home.
Dampness, Mold And Mildew
This is especially common in a poorly sealed crawl space or in an attic with a leaking roof. You can worsen asthma and allergies, catch sinusitis and more.
Inhaling rodent feces, urine or saliva as you breathe can cause very serious illnesses such as hantavirus.
A simple way to make your home healthier is by having these areas professionally cleaned and sanitized. When the Atticare team comes for attic and crawl space cleaning we totally clear it of anything that will cause you health problems, and sanitize the area. You’ll be able to breathe easily from day one.

Wondering how to remove toxins from your home in a way that’s simple? Air sealing is an easy way to keep the air in your crawl space and attic from leaking into the rest of your home. It’s one of our most economical and rapid healthy home upgrades.
Keep Contaminated Air Out
After some time, your attic and crawl space are likely to get dusty. And when there’s a lot of rain, they can get damp.
It’s best to keep that dirty air from traveling around your home and triggering allergies, or even worse if it’s contaminated with mold or rodent waste.
Effective Temperature Control
When the air doesn’t escape, it’s easier to keep your home at a constant temperature too. This is great news for anyone with a sensitive immune system including seniors or infants.
Good Humidity Control
When you can control the air coming into your home, it’s easy to keep it at the humidity level you want. After all, dry air worsens a range of health issues like breathing problems, sore throats and nosebleeds.
If your insulation has come into contact with any of the following, it may be contaminating the air quality in your home.
- Flooding in your crawl space.
- Leaks in the attic.
- Mold and mildew growth.
- Rodent infestations leaving feces, urine or saliva.
Insulation can only work effectively when it’s dry and intact. So if yours is contaminated, insulation replacement is an easy healthy home upgrade. Call the Atticare team and we’ll come right away to replace it.
Cleaning needs to be done regularly, so wouldn’t it be good if there was a way to remove toxins from your home constantly?
Introducing the QuietCool home fan. It delivers fresh air from outside into your home and attic. What’s amazing is that it totally renews the air in your home every 3-4 minutes.
How Stagnant Air Can Affect Your Health
One of the most important qualities of a healthy home environment is fresh air that’s flowing and doesn’t have the chance to get stagnant. When air stays still and everyone’s breathing it, it depletes the oxygen and we can get lethargic. Even worse, viruses, bacteria and allergens spread easily.
These same tiny pollutants can stick around damaging your health for months if you don’t have adequate ventilation.

Rodent proofing keeps rodents out by blocking off all the tiny entrances to your home. In fact, if you have rats or mice, rodent proofing is one of the best ways to remove toxins from your home.
Toxic air flows where it can. So just because rodents are only present in your attic or crawl space doesn’t mean the toxic air stays where it is.
Why Is Rodent Proofing Important?
Rodents are more dangerous than you might hope. In addition to carrying a number of serious diseases, their feces and urine contaminate the air and can make you sick.
Rats and mice just breed and breed the longer you leave them. So take decisive action and make your home healthier by calling Atticare to remove them in an effective and humane way.
Additional Health Benefits To Rodent Proofing
We also sanitize the whole area so it’s safe again. Your attic or crawl space stays clean for longer and the whole home has greater protection against dampness and all the health problems that come along with it.
Disinfection And Sanitation Services
Has anyone in your household been sick recently? A thorough disinfection and sanitation service is a great way to get peace of mind that no-one else is going to catch anything.
