When attics become damp or trap high humidity, Mold may begins to grow in your Attic. This is the beginning of an Attic Ecology. Once Mold begins grow and form colonies, it will attract other species of Mold, Bacteria, Dust Mites, Insects, Rodents, and more. This environment, if left untreated, will continue to grow and contaminate the Indoor Air Quality.
Animals in Your Attic
Animals live in your attic, they can create significant damage and leave a big mess behind. Attic restoration is the process of restoring your attic to the original condition prior to the animal infestation. This can involve repairing chewed electrical wires and air ducts, but it most importantly involves the cleaning of animal waste. The droppings and urine can act as a vector for disease, such as Leptospirosis, Salmonella infection, Raccoon Roundworm, Hookworm, Cryptosporidiosis, and more. Most of these are of lower risk, and only occur if feces is accidentally ingested or in some cases if dust is inhaled. Feces and urine can also be a fertile place for mold growth, which can cause harmful spores or Histoplasmosis.
Other reasons to clean the attic may come from odor issues. Even in you don’t notice the odor, other animals will, especially since animal waste often contains pheromones that attract other animals. Even the smell of rodents can attract snakes into the attic. Your attic may contain nesting material, and parasites such as fleas or mites, which can get into the house and bite.
How much does attic restoration cost? It is usually priced by the square foot. But other factors, such as the level of contamination, can impact price. There’s really no way to know for sure unless a full inspection of your attic is performed. If you want to find out the cost to clean and decontaminate your attic call Flash Restore today!
