Does Your Attic Need Cleaning?
Everyone cleans their home regularly – vacuuming the living room, mopping the kitchen, dusting baseboards, but do you clean your attic regularly? Chances are, you don’t, and most people never even think to clean their attic. It’s not a place you enter often or think much about.
Attics can be havens for pests, dust, and mold – all of which can have adverse effects on your health, even if you are not in your attic regularly. Allergens and toxins in your attic can make their way through the air into other parts of your home. Attic cleaning is an essential chore, just like keeping your living spaces clean.
Is a Dirty Attic Making You Sick?
Do you have a sore throat that won’t go away? Maybe you just can’t shake that cold that started in the fall. If you have unexplainable illnesses, colds or allergies that just won’t go away, it might be time to hire attic professionals to determine whether you need an attic cleaning.
Dust in the Attic
Most attics can be very dusty. And dust can wreak havoc on your health. Dust is made of tiny particles of solid waste matter and can be lifted into the air in your home.
Mold in the Attic
Mold could also be lurking in your attic and making you very ill. Mold loves damp, dark places and can be extremely toxic. Signs of mold sickness include trouble breathing, irritated eyes, and even arthritis!
Animals in the Attic
Pests love to reside in attics, from rodents to bats and insects like roaches – they all may be renting space in your attic. Droppings from these pests can have very adverse effects on your health. Also, pests chew holes in walls, destroy insulation, and chew through electrical wires.
Our attic cleaning services can eliminate dust, mold, pests, and their byproducts. Removing all these contaminants from your attic can freshen your home and have you breathing easier again.
How to Tell If the Attic Needs Cleaning
Most homeowners don’t know when they should clean their attics or if their attic even needs cleaning. Your attic may not be a living space but still requires cleaning like the rest of your home.
Some signs of a dirty attic include:
- Increased utility charges
- Health issues
- Changes in home temperature
- Animal infestations
We recommend a thorough cleaning of your attic every few years. Our attic professionals can tackle your attic cleaning job, so you don’t have to.
Why Hire Professional Attic Cleaners
Hiring attic cleaning professionals can ensure you do not expose yourself to hazardous contaminants like black mold and bat droppings, which can have very harmful effects on your health. Attic cleaning professionals have the skills and professional-grade equipment to quickly and easily clean your attic.
Many people think cleaning the attic on their own can save them money and yes, it can, but you could be overlooking issues that our attic professionals see every day, including:
- Chewed electrical wires from pests
- Damp or moldy insulation
- Damage to HVAC systems.
All of these critical components in the attic can be overlooked to an untrained eye and in the long run, cost you a lot of money.
