Attic Cleaning San Diego
Many homeowners store things in their attic and then do not have a second thought about what is going on up there for months or even years before needing to go back up for some reason. This makes it is easy to forget about the state of the space overhead until an issue becomes apparent that calls for an attic cleaning.
Attics are prone to becoming dusty, moldy, water damaged and infested by rodents, all which can damage your stored possessions, the home itself and even your health. For these reasons, it is necessary to get your attic inspected by professionals to prevent health hazards, repair structural issues, clean out mold and rodent infestations, and to make sure the space is insulated properly.

Attic Cleaning After A Rodent Infestation
Discovering a rat’s nest in your attic is one of the most dangerous situations you can find in your home. Not only do rats have the ability to cause property damage, but they spread disease to both humans and pets inside the home.
The longer rats live in your property, the more damage can be done. They can infest the walls, leave droppings throughout the home, ruin your insulation, and chew through your personal items.
The best way to limit this level of damage is to be aware of your surroundings. If you hear scratching sounds in the attic and walls do not ignore them. This could be the sound of mice, rats or even squirrels invading the premises.
It is also common for animals to die inside the walls of the home, creating a foul odor that can last for weeks. If you notice an unusually pungent smell inside your property, this may be another sign that rodents are dwelling in your attic.
By calling 911 Attic Services we can provide you with the thorough inspection you need to determine the extent of the rodent infestation. We will then get to work cleaning up droppings, urine and any debris found in the attic.
If the insulation, walling and electrical wires are found to be damaged, we will repair and replace whatever is necessary. Getting your attic completely decontaminated is our goal, and we won’t stop until the area is spotless, so give us a call today.
Comprehensive Attic Cleaning And Mold Removal
Along with a rodent infestation, your attic may be exposed to another type of infestation- mold. Mold and rodents actually go hand in hand, because when these critters take up residence in your home, they begin creating nests, urine and feces.
All these substances cause mold growth, which can rapidly infest an attic and go unseen for quite some time. Mold only needs a mere 24 hours to blossom, so it is important to to stop an infestation as soon as possible once it has begun to infest.
Mold has the ability to affect the health of those living inside of the property. By inhaling the spores you can begin to experience allergy-like symptoms and respiratory issues, which is why we work so hard to thoroughly clean your attic and clear out all debris that may be contributing to the infestation.
Making sure your attic is clean, dry and free of any traces of an infestation is the best way to limit the health risks associated with a contaminated attic.
We are available to inspect and clean new and old homes alike, including properties that you may be interested in buying or selling. So, give us a call and we will schedule an appointment with our San Diego attic cleaning technicians today.
