The following terms and definitions can help you better communicate with your local attic cleaning service and crawl space decontamination service.
A space immediately below the roof of a home is known as an attic. Not usually a room meant to be used as living space, attics can be used for storage and are often the location of insulation, wiring, piping, and roof access.

Crawl spaces can become contaminated by rodents, pests, mold, debris and rubbish, or other material and should be regularly inspected and cleaned for safety and health reasons.

drying wet attic
Wetness and moisture can cause mold, mildew, structural damage, and other problems. That’s also true in attics. Rain water that seeps into the attic, moisture that can’t get out of the attic, and standing water or steam and moisture can create unhealthy air that spawns mold spores, damages structures, and degrade surfaces.

Rodent waste, mold and other contaminants can make crawl spaces and attics smell musty or worse. And that odor can invade your home via ventilation systems and air transfer, and the presence of rodent urine can act as a welcome sign to other rodents. Good attic and crawl space cleaning companies can provide odor removal for crawl spaces and odor treatments for attics. This may include waste removal and decontamination of insulation and surfaces.
Also known as: attic odor removal, attic odor abatement, crawl space odor removal, crawl space odor elimination, rodent odor removal, pest odor decontamination
pest decontamination services
Pests like spiders, ants, termites, and rodents like mice, rats, squirrels, and raccoons create messes including urine, feces, nests, structure destruction, and other problems. And not only do they create messes that are both physical and odor-related, their waste can signal to other pests and rodents that your crawl space or attic is a good place to live. So it’s important that any local crawl space or attic cleaning service you hire not only clean the visible debris but also provide pest and rodent decontamination services that also remove urine and scents that can continue to contaminate homes.
