Your crawl space may be the source of your high energy bills and poor air quality. Our experienced crawl-space cleaning technicians will thoroughly examine the source of the issues. They will bag and remove old insulation, as well as install new insulation. If any air ducts are present, the team will clean or upgrade the air ducts, whichever you prefer. They will discard any rodent droppings and carefully clean all surfaces. And they will remove any debris, seal any rodent or animal entry locations, perform a water extraction and dry out if required, and more.
Rodent Stop Proofing
Rodents, birds, and animals can be a tremendous hindrance in air quality and heating and cooling efficiency. They can enter from the exterior of the attic, through the crawl space, and even through the walls. These pest can excrete dangerous toxins into the air distributed throughout your residential or commercial space. Our certified team will stop them at the source by using a number of proofing techniques including mesh screens, cement, and foam. These methodologies prevent such pests from costing you more money each month and improve your overall quality of life.
The hot air from the attic can increase your energy bills and create ripe environments for the growth of bacteria and mold. When you install an attic fan and have it cleaned regularly, the fan will suck in the cool or cold air from outside into the attic at night which results in cooler internal temperatures as it pushes the hot air of the attic to the outside and lowers energy bills. Be sure you have the fan cleaned regularly to prevent additional toxins from entering the rest of the residence or commercial space. It is also important to note that an attic fan can also increase the lifespan of your roof.
To minimize the amount of trapped hot air from the attic space even further, a radiant barrier is essential. A radiant barrier is considered standard in most Los Angeles homes due to the excessive heat and direct sunlight most of the year. Whether you choose a foil or spray-on radiant barrier service, you will reduce the amount of hot air that is allowed to enter the attic space. By blocking additional hot air, your HVAC will operate less and keep your home cooler more naturally resulting in lower energy bills and a more comfortable environment.
