Attic Cleanouts

If you suspect you have pests in your attic, our licensed pest control technicians can perform an attic clean out. We trap and remove nuisance wildlife, clean up droppings, remove damaged insulation, and sanitize for pathogens prior to installing new pest control attic insulation.

We also perform attic clean outs for worn insulation that has become inefficient over time, as well as wet, moldy or damaged insulation – regardless of whether or not you have pests present in your attic.

Common Signs of Attic Pests

You may hear scratching or scurrying noises, particularly at night, or notice unusual odors, but it’s not uncommon to find no outward signs of an attic infestation. As a precaution, we recommend inspecting your attic at least every two years, more often if you’ve had nuisance wildlife problems in the past.

Contact us for an attic clean out if you find any of the following:

  • Nuisance wildlife (living or deceased)
  • Chewed, torn or missing insulation
  • Pieces of insulation littering the attic
  • Evidence of nests, such as leaves, twigs and paper
  • Droppings or excrement
  • Unpleasant odors
  • Wet or moldy insulation

Common Attic Pest Problems

Mice, squirrels, chipmunks and even bats love attics, especially those with fiberglass insulation. The fiberglass is not only warm, but easy to chew, tear, and move from place to place, which makes it ideal for building nests.

In addition to damaging insulation and sending your heating and cooling costs through the roof, attic pests can chew through electrical wires and cause a house fire. Many pests also carry viruses, bacteria, ticks, fleas, parasites and disease, and their droppings contain pathogens that can become airborne.

To prevent pests from entering your attic through vents in your roof ridge, our licensed pest control technicians can install Ridge-Guard®, a patented pest-proof mesh that secures the edges of your roof’s ridge cap. Contact us for a free estimate.
