Attic Restoration: Deodorizing, Disinfecting, Replacing Insulation

squirrels in the attic

When there are squirrels in the attic, they can cause a lot of damage to your insulation and ceiling. Raccoons, bats, birds, or other animals invading your attic bring just as many problems. Animal Remover is able to deal with all of these issues.

Insulation Damage

As animals walk on top of the insulation, they compress it down and that decreases the R-Value which will increase your heating and cooling cost. What’s even worse is when these animals defecate and urinate in your attic space it puts you at risk for many animal-related diseases including but not limited to Raccoon Round Worm, Histoplasmosis, Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis, Leptospirosis, and Salmonellosis.

Insulation Removal

Animal Remover provides a full attic restoration insulation removal and insulation install service. Regardless of the type of attic insulation that you have, we can remove it along with all the animal droppings. We use large vacuums for the insulation removal process. The compressed, dirty insulation is sucked out of the attic through large hoses that transfer the insulation into large collection bags.

Some types of insulation such as fiberglass bat or other rolled insulation must be removed by hand. In this case, we bag all the insulation with heavy-duty 3mm vinyl bags and tie them tightly to keep the insulation and droppings contained in the bags and out of the living space of the home. We dispose of these hazardous materials according to environmental standards.

Deodorize, Disinfect

After your attic insulation is removed, we will deodorize and disinfect the attic using an atomizer. This will help to eliminate the harmful microorganisms and bacteria that cause disease. Our formula will deodorize to eliminate any odors in the space that the animals or their droppings have left behind. Our formula has a special enzyme that eats away bad odors. This means we don’t just cover up odors, we eliminate them.

Insulation Replacement

Animal Remover uses large insulation spraying machines for the insulation installation process. When we blow in insulation, a machine is mounted on the truck and bags are fed into the machine and shredded as it feeds through a hose up into your attic. No insulation or dust will enter into your home during this process.

We also install fiberglass, batt, and rolled insulation. The insulation installation process is done by hand due to the fact that it cannot be shredded through a machine. During this process, the insulation will be carried up into your attic through bags which will not be opened until it is in your attic. This again keeps the insulation out of the living space of the home.
