Attic Restoration Milwaukee

Attics are usually used to store things and they don't get a lot of traffic. It's not unusual for them to accumulate a lot of dust and dirt over time. Animals can find their new homes in attics. AAAC Wildlife Removal can help you remove any evidence of a wildlife infestation in your attic insulation. Our team will take out all animal waste from your attic and install new insulation to restore it to its original condition

How We Restore Your Attic

Although they are not able to chew through insulation material, they can tear it apart. The insulating material becomes more than just bedding: after all, the animals that are tearing at your attic’s barriers will also make a home for themselves in said holes and leave behind their own contaminants like urine and feces. And with less insulation integrity, these areas easily let air escape or enter – so you’re losing money left and right! These are the steps that we follow when restoring an attic.

Scoop out Larger Feces Clumps

A project to restore an attic is started by removing large feces, which are usually left behind by pests. We use a long-handled tool for removing the feces off the ceilings and walls. If the droppings are dry or stuck on hard surfaces we will soak them in water, and then use a wire brush for scraping them off.

The technicians at AAAC use a special tool that has an extendable handle so they can climb onto the roof of your house to get to the high areas where raccoons and squirrels usually leave feces. They may need to loosen large amounts of droppings from rafters, eaves, and other areas so they can vacuum or hand-clean it.

Vacuum Small Feces

To decontaminate an attic, the next step is to vacuum small rodent feces from it. Mice, rats, and other forms of rodent leave behind large amounts of tiny feces that can only be removed using this method. AAAC uses a specialized machine with a large enough hose that can reach the furthest point in your attic. The machine comes with an extra-long vacuum tube, high-velocity suction, and HEPA filter for removing animal hairs and droppings from insulation and other surfaces. AAAC uses a brush attachment to clean small droppings. It is made for tight spaces like corners and areas close to the roof.

Small feces in an attic can be hard to see with the naked eye, so AAAC uses UV light to locate them. The UV light will create black dots on surfaces where feces have been left by animals, such as rats, bats, and raccoons.

Air Duct Cleaning & Repair

AAAC Wildlife Control also provides ductwork repair and restoration services. We can remove hair, droppings and urine. AAAC uses a specialized tool to clean and remove any debris from the inside of the air ducts. Once we have cleaned the ducts thoroughly, we can spray a disinfectant onto them to get rid of any bacteria or viruses that might have been left behind from bats, rats or raccoons.

Decontaminate the Attic

After the removal of the animals, the most important part is the cleanup of the attic. This is a very important part of the job and it’s done to ensure your family stays safe from microbial pathogens that could be harmful if inhaled or ingested.

AAAC Wildlife Removal uses special ultraviolet light to detect areas that are contaminated with rodent droppings. The technicians will then use a disinfectant spray to clean the affected surfaces and areas, killing all microorganisms that may be present in animal feces.

AAAC Wildlife Removal will spray a fine mist into the attic to kill microorganisms. They use an electric-atomizer sprayer, which creates a fog that’s invisible to humans. Droplets that are evaporating leave behind chemical residues that are toxic to microorganisms.

Drying is crucial in attic restoration services because it eliminates moisture which can promote mold growth. AAAC may use a dehumidifier to ensure that all moisture evaporates from the attic wood and insulation. This prevents mold growth when the attic space is re-insulated.

Technicians will then remove insulation and install new insulation to complete the restoration process. The old insulation must be removed carefully to prevent ruining adjacent areas or leaving a mess behind. Insulation is normally wrapped around rafters or joists, so be careful when pulling them, lest they cause damage to some of the wooden structures.

Mold spores and other potentially hazardous materials can also be found in insulation. These substances can be released into the air when insulation is removed. Our technicians wear masks to protect them from any hazardous airborne particles entering the air-ducts.

After removing the insulation, technicians will then place new ones. The insulation must fit snugly around rafters or joists. It is possible to leave some pieces behind by cutting things too close. Technicians also use masking tape and a sealer during installation to hold everything in place.

What is full attic restoration?

Attic restoration is a process to restore the function and appearance of an attic. Attic restoration includes removal of animal waste, decontamination and re-insulation.

When attics get dirty and dusty due to animal droppings, accumulated dirt, or ice accumulation, their ability to insulate is often reduced. This loss of insulation allows more energy to be lost through your home than if the insulation had been left intact. Fans are used to dry interior areas affected by moisture, such as bathrooms or closets that have suffered water damage.

How do you disinfect an attic?

To disinfect an attic, you must first remove old insulation then clean the attic with a disinfectant or an ultraviolet sterilizer. It is essential to clean all surfaces which have been exposed to contaminated material in order not to reinfect.

In order to disinfect the area safely and efficiently, you must first remove insulation. Attic restoration also involves the use of a powerful suction system to remove mold, bacteria, and other harmful materials from surfaces such as wood joists or rafters. A biocides washdown is performed after which any mold remains are removed. It also leaves behind an antimicrobial compound to prevent the growth of mold and mildew in the future. Finally, the area is disinfected with ultraviolet light similar to what’s used in hospitals.
