    Learn From Previous Clients of Santa Clara County Attic Cleaning and Crawl Space Cleaning Companies

    If you can’t find Diamond Certified attic cleaning and crawl space cleaning companies within reach, you’ll have to do some research on your own. In that case, it’s wise to call references provided by your top candidates.
    Keep in mind, though, that references provided to you by contractors themselves are not equal in value to the large random sample of customers surveyed during the Diamond Certified ratings process.

Still, the information you learn from references, even handpicked references, can be useful in understanding what previous clients have to say about the companies in question.
    If you do call references on your own, specifically ask for a list of the Santa Clara County attic cleaning and crawl space cleaning companies’ 10 most recent customers.

    Sample questions you may want to ask include these:
    1. What services did you hire the Santa Clara County attic cleaning and/or crawl space cleaning company to provide for you?
    2. Were you satisfied with the attic cleaning services/crawl space cleaning services provided by (company name)? Why or why not?
    3. Did the attic and crawl space cleaning crew respect your property and leave your home clean after the work was completed?
    4. Was there any damage to your home as a result of the cleaning?
    5. Did you get a written estimate before the service?
    6. Was the quoted price what you paid? Or were extra fees added to the service? If so, what were they for and were they avoidable?
    7. Were the attic and crawl space cleaning technicians pleasant and easy to work with?
    8. Did the Santa Clara County crawl space and attic cleaning company show you your attic or crawl space when they were done to gauge your satisfaction?
    9. Did they provide video inspection services if needed?

  • How To Work With
    Encourage Santa Clara County Attic and Crawl Space Cleaning Companies to Want to Help You

    Just like most homeowners are selective about who works in their homes, local contractors can be equally selective. That’s because the best companies often have limited resources and prefer to work with consumers who value their services and are easy to work with.
    That doesn’t mean you have to be a pushover. It does mean that good customer behavior can encourage local attic and crawl space cleaning companies to want to work in your home.
    So how can you be the kind of customer local crawl space sanitation and attic cleaning companies in San Jose, Santa Clara, Mountain View, Milpitas, Palo Alto, Cupertino, Gilroy, Campbell, Morgan Hill and your area want to serve?
    1. Show you want to find value and quality services rather than simply the lowest bid. Many homeowners simply ask about price. You can show your interest in quality by asking questions about inspection methods, cleaning and repair techniques, warrantees and lasting value rather than price alone.
    2. Be upfront with the Santa Clara County crawl space and attic cleaning contractors. Let them know if you’re interviewing other contractors and accepting competing bids. But only consider companies that offer quality work, and don’t accept more than three to five bids. Again, resist the urge to shop on price alone and choose to hire licensed, insured, honest contractors that provide reliable and detailed service.
    3. Tell your attic and crawl space cleaning company representative exactly what you want done and every specific direction or request you have. This will allow them to give you the most accurate bids possible and helps them understand exactly what you want and expect. If the Santa Clara County attic and crawl space cleaners you’re interviewing can’t provide what you need or want, it’s better to find out before you’ve wasted your time and theirs.
    4. Hire local crawl space and attic remediation companies in Santa Clara County. Most contractors prefer to work within a local area so they can provide faster service and be available for their customers. Hiring companies that are only in town for a short time or that are from several counties away can limit the quality of service you get and can prevent the company from being available to you if you need them again, call on them for warranty work, or have questions or concerns about their services.
    Now That You’ve Found the Best Crawl Space and Attic Sanitization Contractor For You
    Once you’ve done your research and found the Santa Clara County attic and crawl space cleaning service that best suits your needs, you can move forward and sign a contract. Good contracts should include details about the scope of the inspection and work, any materials and products to be used, payment terms, the expected timeline for the job and any warranties and guarantees.
    Your local attic cleaning service should provide a contract and allow you to read through it and ask any questions you may have before signing. This agreement protects you, your property and the contractor, so it’s important that you understand all terms and exclusions and that you never sign an incomplete or blank estimate or contract.
    If you’ve made any verbal agreements with your crawl space cleaning contractor, write them into the contract before you both sign it. These may include expectations and instructions, start and end dates, and any other items that you want part of the official job contract.
    Then schedule the work and follow through with your end of the job.
    Tips for Successfully Working with Local Attic and Crawl Space Remediation Companies
    Whether you live in Gilroy, Cupertino, Campbell, Palo Alto, Milpitas, San Martin, East Palo Alto, Los Gatos, Monte Sereno, Permanente or another city, there are a few things you can do before your Santa Clara County attic and crawl space contractor arrives and while they’re working to help the work move along smoothly.
    • Have a list of specific tasks and questions you want the crawl space and attic cleaning company to do and answer. This can help ensure you get the service and answers you need and may cut down on the billable hours.
    • Clear unnecessary items from the area where the contractor will be working. Make sure the entrance to your attic and crawl space are clear of debris and items and easily accessible. If you store items in your attic or crawl space, remove them to allow your contractor to get right in and get the job done. The easier the access and more convenient the working environment, the less time your contractor has to spend working to access or clear your attic, crawl space, or the entrances to them.
    • If you have valuable or important items stored in or near crawl spaces or attics, remove and store them prior to the contractors’ arrival. If there is furniture or art near the access points to the attic or crawl space, you may want to move and store it in a safe place to prevent damage or breakage.
    • Ask ahead of time whether your Santa Clara County attic and crawl space cleaning service will need access to parking (for regular or oversized vehicles), power, water, or other utilities or materials. Nearby parking for vacuum trucks or ease of access for cleaning equipment and having other items available or ready can ease the job and keep the work on track.
    • Keep pets and children out of the area while the work is ongoing, and steer clear of the area so you aren’t in the way. The contractors may need to go in and out of your home, and doors or windows may need to be open to allow for vacuums, cleaning equipment, hoses, plugs, or other items to go through. In that case, it’s smart to keep pets confined to a closed room and keep children out of the work area or areas where equipment or workers are present.
    • Ask your crawl space and attic cleaning service representative what you can do to help speed the job along or make the work easier. There may be simple steps you can take to increase the contractors’ efficiency, cutting down on the amount of time spent and the overall cost of the job.

Crawl Space Remediation and Restoration in Santa Clara County
When crawl spaces become infested with pests, rodent waste, debris, mold, and other damaging materials, local crawl space remediation and restoration services can help. This includes removal of toxic and harmful materials, pest waste, rubbish, and other debris. Most can also restore the crawl space to a healthier environment, which leads to a healthier home.
Crawl Space and Attic Odor Treatment
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. Santa Clara County 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.
Santa Clara County Attic Decontamination / Crawl Space Decontamination
When toxic or potentially dangerous substances like mold, rodent waste, and pest debris are present in attics and crawl spaces, decontamination can prevent them from attracting more rodents or being spread throughout your home and causing allergies or other reactions. Santa Clara County crawl space and attic decontamination services in Sunnyvale, San Jose, Campbell, Gilroy, Morgan Hill and other locations can help.
Removal of Moisture in Attic / Drying Wet Attic
No matter where it’s found, 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 problems such as standing water or steamy moisture can create unhealthy air that spawns mold spores and creates structural damage that can degrade surfaces. Good attic cleaning companies can offer moisture removal and water drying services in attics, as well as installing permanent attic moisture drying systems and attic moisture solutions like vapor and moisture barriers.
Removing Water in Crawl Space / Removal of Moisture in Crawl Space
Like with attics, crawl spaces can experience water and moisture problems. This can create mold, dry rot, mildew, and structural problems if it’s left untreated for too long. Santa Clara County crawl space cleaning services can provide water removal and moisture treatments in crawl spaces, as well as moisture barriers, crawl space vapor barriers, and dehumidifying and venting solutions.
Santa Clara County Attic Solutions
Most people only use their attics for storage, if that. But moisture, pests, odors, heat, debris, insulation degradation, and other problems can create the need for attic solutions that keep attics clean, healthy, and useable. Attic solutions from Santa Clara County attic cleaning services in San Jose, Santa Clara, Mountain View, Milpitas, Palo Alto, Cupertino, Gilroy, Campbell, Morgan Hill and beyond can also keep air within the home clean by virtue of prevention of the transfer of unhealthy air from the attic to the home.
Pest Decontamination in Crawl Space and Attic
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 in Santa Clara County or the Bay Area 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.
Santa Clara County Attic Vacuum Services
Attic vacuums are generally used to remove old or degrading attic insulation. These attic vacuums can remove loose fill attic insulation, pests, pest and rodent waste, debris and rubbish. Good attic cleaning companies can provide attic vacuum services.

Q: Why should I have my crawlspace and attic cleaned?
A: Even if you don’t use your crawl space or attic for storage or other uses, having a dirty or contaminated attic or crawl space can still cause problems in your home. That’s because contaminated air can flow into your home, aggravating allergies or sensitivities, negatively impacting your energy bill, and creating poor air quality. Local attic and crawl space cleaning companies are able to remove dirt, debris, rubbish, rodent droppings, mold, and other contaminants and repair or install vapor barriers and insulation.

Q: How often should I have my crawl space and attic cleaned?
A: Many experts recommend having your home’s attic and crawlspace cleaned and inspected annually. This includes inspecting the insulation, looking for the presence of pests or rodents, damage to the roof or attic/crawl space structure, and clearing away debris and rodent/pest waste products. Many local crawl space inspectors and attic cleaning services will provide annual inspections and cleaning for reasonable rates that offer peace of mind and a cleaner home.
Q: What is attic decontamination or crawl space decontamination?
A: When pests including rodents like mice, rats, squirrels and raccoons take up residence in your attic or crawl space, they leave behind waste. This can spread disease, allergens, and toxic particles, and can signal to other rodents that the space is livable. Attic decontamination and crawl space decontamination services remove the visible waste and debris, and the best ones will use a sterilization solution to eliminate bacteria and diseases.
Q: Can I stay in my home while the attic cleaning or crawlspace cleaning is underway?
A: In most cases homeowners can stay in their homes during crawlspace and attic cleaning. Most cleaning and decontamination services only take a few hours, and even repairs and replacement of damaged or faulty materials can be done without disrupting the household. Only in rare cases will you need to make other living arrangements during the services. Talk with your attic cleaning company and crawl space cleaning service to ensure that you can be in your home during the work.
Q: Can local attic and crawl space cleaning services rodent-proof my home?
A: Many good crawl space and attic cleaning companies also offer rodentproofing and rodent prevention. This often includes an inspection to look for areas of access, chewing or nesting damage to the structure, access holes, cracks, structural damage, or other areas where pests such as rodents and insects are gaining access or living. Then the company will create and implement a plan including blocking holes and cracks, repairing damage or replacing damaged items, and otherwise rodentproofing and pestproofing the space. Talk with your local attic cleaning service or crawl space decontamination company to learn what they can offer in terms of preventing future rodent and pest access.
Q: What is attic insulation removal?
A: Attic insulation ages and can become brittle and disintegrate, creating a mess in your attic and even pose a health risk if insulation particles are transferred around your home via your ventilation system. The same goes for attic insulation removal. If you or your attic cleaning company don’t remove old attic insulation in the right way, it can create an even bigger mess and a health hazard. Removal must be done correctly, as must bagging and disposal.
