The Importance of Attic & Crawl Space Services
Having worked in the attic and crawl space industry for well over a decade, we have found that most homeowners we speak with take an “out of sight, out of mind” approach to these areas of their home. Unless a significant problem arises that impacts other parts of the home, attics and crawl spaces are traditionally neglected and rarely provided with the care and attention they require.
Many homeowners are largely unaware of the potential issues related to energy-efficiency, climate control and air quality that are linked to an unmaintained, under-insulated attic or crawl space. At Atticare, we place a high priority on educating our clients in the New Jersey, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay areas about these spaces on how they stand to benefit from outfitting and maintaining them properly.
Assessing Your Attic & Crawl Space
Depending on your home and the climate in which you live, issues can arise in your attic and crawl space that lead to various problems with the structure, air quality, energy-efficiency and more. The following signs suggest it’s probably time to seek the expert assessment and advice of an industry professional:
- Drafts that lead to inconsistent indoor temperatures and higher energy bills
- Poor, stuffy ventilation that leaves allergens and contaminants in the air
- Noise from rodents and other creatures in your home
- Damaged insulation and electrical wiring from critters nesting and chewing
- Unpleasant odors from hidden animal carcasses and excrement
- Gaps and holes in woodwork
- Water and moisture damage in the ceiling or floor, such as rust and rotting wood
- Mold or mildew presence
Some of these symptoms are minor nuisances, but in many cases, they are indicative of potential health hazards, drains on your savings and disruptions to your daily life. Many homeowners are unaware that a contaminated attic can cause health complications like weakened immune systems and respiratory problems.
A clean attic helps the air in your entire house stay healthy and breathable. Over the years, Atticare has been able to help countless families noticeably reduce allergies, the effects of asthma and cardiovascular diseases.
A clean and completely insulated attic ensures your family sleeps well at night knowing that there’s nothing contaminating the air, while also improving energy-efficiency. Therefore, if you notice any of the signs listed above, the wisest course of action is to address them immediately before they put your health, home and finances at greater risk.
At Atticare, we understand that many homeowners have never even been to their attic or crawl space. If you have concerns about these areas of your home, our experienced technicians can conduct a full inspection and report along with any recommendations on how to address any issues we find in an effective and budget-friendly manner. Together, we can prioritize and strategize toward helping you achieve a more healthy, energy-efficient home.
During this initial inspection, we:
- Look at the insulation´s R-value (resistance to hot or cold air traveling through it). 95% of homes are under-insulated according to the Insulation Institute, so this is an important step to help save energy.
- Check for damage to air ducts, pipes and electrical wires and the structure itself caused by rodents.
- Inspect the HVAC system and the roof for signs of leaks or wood rot. We help our customers identify hazards like exposed electrical wires, asbestos, mildew and mold.
Once our technician is done presenting the overall report of their findings, they will show you pictures and help you prioritize which services are most urgent in order for you to achieve a healthier, more energy-efficient home.
