Why should homeowners have their crawl spaces and attics inspected and cleaned periodically? Since crawl spaces are closed off and not readily visible most homeowners tend to forget about them. This is a mistake because these spaces are a common entry point for rodents and insects who can cause expensive and dangerous damage to these areas. Properly insulating and securing these spaces can avoid future damage. There can also be a build up of water from storms that can undermine the home. A good Crawl Space Cleaning in Tacoma company can clean crawl spaces and attics and replace or refurbish compacted, soiled, or insufficient insulation.
Homes that have crawl spaces instead of basements or cement slabs, may have insulation, vents, ductwork, plumbing, and wiring located there. Insects, reptiles, and rodents can gain entry to crawl spaces that are not secured and make their homes in that area. When this happens and goes unnoticed, the pests can soil and contaminate the ground, insulation, vapor barrier, and other systems located in the crawl space. The rodents can damage duct systems, chew wiring, damage plumbing, and even disconnect vents and unseal seams in duct work. Even if the rodents or other pests leave the space, waste, urine, dead bodies, and other pathogens can remain behind causing health hazards. Contacting a company that specializes in Crawl Space Cleaning in Tacoma can be the start of correcting any problems. These specialists can do an inspection, find the problems, then clean the crawl space and repair any damage. Finally, they can seal the crawl space so no rodents or other visitors can get in.
The same company can inspect attics and restore them to the best condition. Attic insulation can be missing or insufficient, soiled by pests, or compacted. These conditions can affect the costs of heating and cooling a home. A well-insulated attic can also act as a sound dampener. Specialists can examine an attic and determine what needs to be done to restore it or bring it up to optimum condition. The cost of replacing damaged or compacted insulation in an attic can pay for itself over time by lowering heating bills. For more information on crawl space and attic services, go to the website.
