Attic Restoration Dayton

Attics are usually used to store things and they don't get a lot of traffic. It's not unusual for them to accumulate a lot of dust and dirt over time. Animals can find their new homes in attics. AAAC Wildlife Removal can help you remove any evidence of a wildlife infestation in your attic insulation. Our team will take out all animal waste from your attic and install new insulation to restore it to its original condition

How we restore your attic

Although they are not able to chew through insulation material, they can tear it apart. The insulation material becomes much more than just bedding. After all, the animals that tear down your attic’s barriers can also make a home there and leave behind their contaminants like urine or feces. These areas can easily allow air in or out, which is why you could be losing money. Here are some steps to follow when attic restoration is completed.

Scoop out Larger Feces Clumps

The first step is to remove any larger feces that have been left behind by pests. We use a long-handled tool to remove the feces from the walls and ceilings. We soak any dropped materials that are stuck to hard surfaces or dried in water and then remove them using a wire brush.

AAAC technicians use an extended handle tool to climb onto the roof of your home to find high-risk areas where squirrels and rats often leave feces. Technicians may have to remove large amounts of droppings from the rafters or eaves in order to safely vacuum it out.

Next is to clean out the attic of small rodent feces pellets by vacuuming. This is the only way to remove tiny pellets of feces found in attics from rats, mice and other rodents. AAAC uses a specialized machine with a large enough hose that can reach the furthest point in your attic. It has an extra-long, powerful vacuum tube, high-speed suction, and HEPA filter that removes animal hair and droppings. AAAC will use a special brush to reach corners and other areas around the roof.

AAAC uses a UV lamp to locate small feces found in attics. The UV light will appear as black dots on any surface where feces have been left behind by animals such as bats, rats, and raccoons.

AAAC Wildlife Control also provides ductwork repair and restoration services. We can remove hair, droppings and urine. This can be hard to do, but AAAC uses a special tool to clean the inside of the ducts and remove all debris. Once the cleaning is complete, we can apply a disinfectant to the ducts in order to kill any remaining bacteria and viruses.

Decontaminate the Attic

After removing rodents, the most important aspect of any attic restoration project is to decontaminate the attic of rodent urine and feces. This is a crucial part of the job. It helps to keep your family safe from potential microbial pathogens.

AAAC Wildlife Removal uses special ultraviolet light to detect areas that are contaminated with rodent droppings. The technicians will then use a disinfectant spray to clean the affected surfaces and areas, killing all microorganisms that may be present in animal feces.

AAAC Wildlife Removal will fog an attic with fine mist to kill any microorganisms from the animal droppings. An electric atomizer sprayer is used to create a cloud of tiny droplets that are invisible to humans. Droplets that evaporate leave behind a chemical residue that is toxic to microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, and algae.

Drying is crucial in attic restoration services because it eliminates moisture which can promote mold growth. AAAC might use a dehumidifier in order to dry out the insulation and wood attic. This can also prevent mold growth from occurring during the re-insulation of the attic.

Full Attic Insulation Replacement

Technicians will complete this portion of the restoration by removing insulation and installing new insulation. To prevent damage to neighboring areas or leaving a mess, it is essential that the old insulation be removed carefully. Insulation is usually wrapped around rafters and joists, so it’s important that you don’t pull it too hard or you may break some of the wood structures in your attic.

Mold spores or other potentially dangerous substances are also common in insulation. Our technicians wear masks to prevent them from inhaling any particles that may get into the air ducts.

The technicians will remove the old insulation and install the new insulation. The insulation must be cut so it fits snugly around the joists and rafters. Although cutting things close can lead to some leftover insulation. To keep everything in its place during installation, technicians use masking tape or a duct sealer.

What is full attic restoration?

Attic Restoration is a process that restores the function and appearance to an attic. Attic restoration includes removal of animal waste, decontamination and re-insulation.

When attics are contaminated with animal droppings, dust, and ice, their insulation ability decreases. This causes more heat loss through your home than it would if the insulation was intact. The decontamination process begins with using fans throughout interior areas that have been affected by moisture such as closets or bathrooms where there has been leakage from water carrying away dirt and dust.

How do you disinfect an attic?

Remove old insulation. Use an ultraviolet sterilizer and disinfectant to decontaminate it. Finally, sanitize the area to kill bacteria. To prevent reinfection, you must clean all surfaces that come in direct contact with the contaminated material.

It begins by removing insulation in order to perform safe and effective disinfecting. For attic restoration, you will need to use a powerful suction device to remove any harmful materials, such as mold and bacteria, from surfaces like wood beams or rafters. This is followed by a biocides wash-down that not only kills remaining mold but leaves behind an antimicrobial compound that prevents future mold and mildew growth. The final step is light sterilization, which disinfects the area using ultraviolet lights similar to those used in hospitals.
