Attic Cleaning is an Essential Home Care Activity
Attic cleaning is one of those essential activities that homeowners don’t think about until something goes wrong.
In contrast to other visible spaces of your home, an attic is forgotten for anything other than storage. Nonetheless, an attic requires the same attention and care you give to the rest of your home.
Homeowners are unaware of the problems that can occur in attics that can lead to severe damage and hazardous health conditions if left untreated.
An example of this danger is when raccoons, mice, rats and bats have nested in your attic. This leads to contamination of your home insulation with feces, and urine. Without attention these contaminants and fumes could spread all over your home and you and your loved ones could be in danger.

Help Minimize Mold and Mildew
The terms that are dreaded most by homeowners are “mold and mildew,” particularly when linked to their home’s environment.
If you can’t distinguish between the two, then remember that the black and green colored fungi is mold, while the one having a white or gray color is mildew. Research illustrates that mold occurrence is found to be 20 percent in certain U.S. areas, while the figures climb up to almost 60 percent in other areas.
These unpleasant agents target dirty attics, especially the ones with any hint of moisture. Therefore, keep checking your attic regularly in order maintain its neatness. If you find any sign of mold and mildew, contact Crawl Pros for cleaning and mold removal.
