Attics and crawl spaces fill up with garbage, damaged insulation, remnants of rodent infestations and other miscellaneous debris. Cleaning these areas improves energy efficiency, indoor air quality and prepares your home for upgraded insulation.
The attic is more than just a storage area or a space to hide electrical and plumbing equipment, HVAC ducts, and AV cables; your attic and crawl spaces play an essential role in whole-home (or business) energy efficiency. Accumulated debris impacts insulation performance, can damage HVAC ducts and can infiltrate your home’s forced-air heating/cooling system, which negatively affects indoor air quality.
Attic Solutions services homes and business in and around the San Francisco Bay Area, cleaning attic and crawl spaces, making homes more comfortable and energy-efficient. We also provide a range of additional attic services as needed. Feel free to visit Yelp! to read reviews and testimonials from previous clients.

If your home is 15-years old or older, and you’ve never had your attic cleaned or inspected, we’re confident you’ll benefit from a professional attic and crawl space cleanup. Older homes weren’t sealed nearly as well as those built in the past decade. As a result, dust, pollen, and other debris, rodents – and their dead bodies and feces – or leftover scraps from contractors, water damaged remnants, etc., begin accumulating on the attic floors.
If rodents, water damage or mold issues have caused a significant problem, we’ll complete our cleanup with a thorough sanitizing process to prevent the development or spread of further bacteria, fungus, viruses or other toxins.
Additionally, airflow from poorly sealed attics can blow loose-fill or damaged insulation around over time, making it less effective. By having your attic and crawl spaces professionally cleaned, these issues are eliminated, getting your attic back into great shape so you can replace the old insulation with a higher-quality product.
In well-insulated or soundproof homes, rats in the attic may only seem like a minor sound nuisance that comes and goes according to the weather. In reality, any rats, rodents or other pests that take up residence in the attic are wreaking havoc. They chew cords and pipes, make air ducts their warm/cool home and their waste products erode insulation and structural components.
We’re experts at clearing up existing or former rat infestations, and we’ll also clean and sanitize the attic and affected surfaces or equipment before we leave. This provides peace of mind, as well as cleaner air quality.
Often, a small attic leak from the roof or flashing results in water damage that clients are unaware of. This water infiltrates insulation, wood framing and/or other interior spaces but doesn’t always make its visible way into your living spaces until much later. By this time, structural damage and rot, as well as mold/mildew growth, may already be an issue.
The Attic Solutions team offers attic sealing as well as the installation of attic vapor barriers, preventing future leaks and mitigating potential water damage. These services also improve whole-home comfort and energy efficiency. Plus, catching leaks and water damage on the front-end saves thousands of dollars in future repair and replacement costs due to unchecked structural damage.
How often do you look into your attic and crawl spaces to check the status of your insulation? If you’re like most homeowners, the answer is “never.” However, multiple situations compromise insulation – particularly if your home was built before 2005.
If needed, our team of experts is happy to remove the old insulation. We’ll clean everyhing using our specialized industrial HEPA vacuum and containment systems, keeping debris disturbance to an absolute minimum.
Once the attic and crawl spaces are prepped, we’ll install replacement insulation that meets the standard EnergyStar guidelines for the Bay Area. Afterward, you’ll notice a difference in terms of lower energy bills, a more efficient HVAC system and improved interior comfort and air quality.
Over time, air ducts can crack, dent or even break apart in sections, unbeknownst to you. In some cases, your HVAC system simply works harder – and more expensively – to make up the difference. In other cases, damaged air ducts allow dust and/or rodent feces and debris to get into the HVAC system, spreading through your home via the vents. This compromises indoor air quality and can cause or exacerbate respiratory issues for home and/or business occupants.
If we notice your ducts need some help, we’ll let you know. Air duct repair and replacement is a service we offer or we’re happy to refer you to a qualified, local HVAC expert if your entire system is in need of updating.
