Clean Out Services
Nuisance wildlife and pests can wreak havoc in and around your home. Basements and attics provide safe harbor during cold winter months, and pests and wildlife will nest, creating an unhealthy and unsafe environment.
The attic of your home contains most of a structure’s insulation and one of the most common places for animals such as squirrels, raccoons, bats, mice, etc., to nest. The animals/rodents may leave behind feces, urine, fleas, mites, ticks, and nests. Soiled insulation should be removed and replaced with new insulation and disinfected. Listed below is our scope of service.
Our clean out scope of service is as follows:
- Set up plastic containment around entry and throughout the room, covering all surrounding furniture.
- Set up a negative air machine to vent contaminated air to the exterior to prevent contamination to the household.
- Remove, bag, and dispose of soiled insulation.
- HEPA vacuum all debris/droppings.
- Disinfect and sanitize the contaminated area.
- Replace with new insulation.
Basement cleanouts require going beyond what you can see. We are a pest control company with restoration services as a critical component of a proper cleanout. Damages from natural disasters such as storms, flooding and fire can create a safe harbor for pests and nuisance wildlife to move in. It also causes damage to flooring, drywall, insulation, and materials that require restoration services to return the basement to a usable and safe environment for your family.
Our basement clean-out service can be for any problem or damages such as mold, rodent/wildlife infestation, and clutter. Clutter creates a desired home and environment for pests, mice, and mold.
After evaluating the situation and the root cause of the problem, we:
- Remove and discard damaged/unwanted items
- Hepa vac all debris or droppings
- Sanitize the area thoroughly
- Remove damaged materials such as floors, walls, and ceilings
- Reconstruct rooms, ceilings, railings
- Build and install sump pump covers
- Clean out a French drain
- Install weep holes
Don’t be overwhelmed. We make it easy, quick, and affordable. That’s why we are here. The technicians at Accurate Pest Control work in teams, each member trained in the various aspects of the clean-out. From removal to repair, our technicians ensure that your family is enjoying a safe and healthy basement living space when we leave your home.
Is the inside of your house cold in the winter and hot in the summer? Air drafts through the structure?
Temperature fluctuations may be occurring due to lack of insulation or rodent/wildlife harborage. When rodents and wildlife enter the structure, their primary purpose is food and shelter—what better place for wildlife than to nestle in the attic or wall insulation? Rodents and wildlife will chew apart and break down insulation areas to build a nest, leaving uninsulated areas of the attic or wall voids. The damage will create significant energy loss, allowing humidity to enter unwanted areas and harbor mold.
Attics, basements, and crawlspaces are among the most common areas where wildlife and rodents will harbor. Quiet, dark, and undisturbed wildlife such as bats, squirrels, raccoons, mice, chipmunks, etc., will nest in the insulation and leave behind feces, urine, fleas, and mites. Once all targeted wildlife and rodents are eradicated, technicians will provide a detailed proposal to remove all soiled insulation, sanitize and disinfect, HEPA vacuuming all surfaces, and install new insulation of choice.
What types of insulation do we offer?
At Accurate, we install many different types of insulation. Fiberglass batt, blown-in fiberglass/cellulose, blanket insulation (foundation walls), and foam ridge board are just a few examples. The best form of insulation is calculated based on your climate and structure. Below is a chart of recommended R-value.
What is R-value, and why is it so important?
There are cases where having too much insulation is worse than having no insulation at all. R-value or resistance value is the measure of any insulation’s ability to slow the flow of heat. The higher or greater the R-value, the better the insulation will be to maintain a comfortable living space and save homeowners’ annual energy costs.
