Attic Restoration – Entertain Guests, Not Pests

Attic Restoration Is A Popular Service In November

OK, you’re done with Halloween and are getting ready for Thanksgiving and of course, Christmas and Hanukkah. Getting the Halloween decorations out was one thing, now it’s time to pull out the big stuff. If you’re like many Floridians, the thought of going up into that incredibly hot attic sends shivers down your spine. Not the kind of chills you associate with hot chocolate and sweaters. More the kind you just put away for Halloween. This is the season we hear from our customers the most regarding attic restoration. Once you get up there, chances are good that you may find the telltale signs of rats, raccoons, opossums, and maybe even bats. Attics are the perfect place for wild pests to nest and raise their young. Just a small opening can cause a major intrusion problem. And with these critters, come the six-legged variety that infests not only your attic but enters your home by the hundreds.

Can Attic Restoration Be Covered by Insurance?

Our technicians have found some very interesting leave-behinds that can mean major headaches for homeowners. Some wildlife droppings indicate a species that is covered by your insurance plan and there’s a good chance your claim will pay for a full attic restoration. We can help identify the culprits and will prepare your report to help you file for insurance if the situation warrants it. 

Most of the time, when we are called to evaluate an attic, we find that the insulation is 20 plus years old. And, like most things, insulation was not meant to last a lifetime. Over the years, weather, animals, humidity, and gravity tamp down the insulation making it ineffective for energy efficiency and hospitable to all types of pests including rodents, ants, roaches, silverfish, maggots, mites, parasites, and other creepy crawlies.

Certified TAP Insulation Process

Our certified TAP (Thermal Acoustic Pest) insulation process includes removing all the old beaten-down pink stuff, completely sanitizing the attic to remove the scent of enticing habitats, and sealing all entry points. Once the attic is secure and clean, we spray high-quality insect-preventative insulation which is proven to reduce or prevent future insect infestations and increase energy efficiency. Another major benefit is a reduction in outside noise. Some of our customers who have had an attic restoration who live near the airport report a significant drop in noise level from planes. 

The holidays should be about entertaining guests, not pests. If you’re ready for an attic evaluation, give us a call. What’s in your attic?
