Our Attic & Crawl Space Clean Up Process - Step By Step
We begin the attic and crawl space cleaning process by removing everything from the space, including the old insulation. Attics and crawl spaces are frequently home to pest and mold infestations due to their secludedness and tendency to trap moisture when not sealed or insulated properly. This is especially true in a moist climate like the San Francisco Bay Area. By removing all of the waste, debris and old insulation, we can make the area free of pests and odors as well as identify any problem areas that were formerly hidden beneath. The Atticare team will take care of collecting and vacuuming anything that remains and disposing of it properly.
Sanitization and Decontamination (Optional)
Beyond just removing the old insulation and remaining debris, it is crucial to eliminate any germs, fungi, bacteria and parasites that may have been left behind by rodents or otherwise. If any evidence of rodents was present, this stage is particularly important because rats, mice, and squirrels are known to carry bacteria that can be harmful to our health.
If the space is not properly sanitized and decontaminated, these contaminants can cause serious respiratory conditions, bacterial infections, and viruses in those who are exposed to them. Our trained experts will make sure your San Francisco Bay Area home is completely free of contamination, bacteria and odors before moving forward with the cleaning process.
Rodent Proofing (Optional)
Following the decontamination process, the next step is to ensure that unwanted pests and rodents don’t have the opportunity to return and make a home in your attic and crawl space. In the San Francisco Bay Area, where the rodent population is so high, the odds are you have probably had a few unwanted visitors already.
In addition to introducing bacteria into your environment, rodents can also have an impact on the structural integrity of your home by chewing holes in insulation, air ducts, walls and electrical wiring. Our team uses wire mesh and expanding foam to seal off any potential entrance points, which also prevents drafts and makes your home more energy-efficient.
Air Sealing & Duct Repair & Replacement
(Optional, Attics Only)
In addition to sealing off any potential entrances for rodents, we also caulk any gaps between the attic and the rest of the home to prevent heat or cool air from escaping. This crucial measure is required by California’s Title 24 Standard for energy efficiency any time a contractor removes insulation.
In order to make your home even more energy efficient, our team can also do a full inspection of your HVAC system to make sure air is not escaping through any of your ducts. If necessary, we also offer duct repair and replacement services that will lower your energy bills and bolster the lifespan of your HVAC system.
Now that your attic and crawl space are sanitized and properly sealed off from drafts and rodents, we recommend that our clients replace their old insulation with new, high-quality insulation. We offer a variety of options when it comes to insulation and our team can help you decide which is the best choice for your home and budget. Installing upgraded insulation material will reduce your energy bills by keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The new, clean insulation will also ensure the quality of the air in your Bay Area home remains high for years to come.

The cost of having your attic and crawl space cleaned varies depending on the size of these areas, their condition and the extent of any damage we find during the insulation removal stage. Some may seem in good condition at a glance, but beneath the surface often lie issues that require more attention and resources in order to properly address.
