One of our most crucial services is locating every point of entry rodents use. Some critters can squeeze through an opening the size of a dime. But our experts know what to look for and will seal entry points, set traps, and eliminate food sources to prevent your unwanted guests from returning.
Mold spores are everywhere, but you do not want them to colonize your home. Technicians from Attic Projects understand where these contaminants hide, so we’ll inspect your home for mold and eliminate moisture sources like standing water or blocked bathroom vents. We’ll kill and remove mold before applying antimicrobial treatments.
Vapor barriers protect your home against dampness, mold, and mildew — they make your home less desirable to pests that will destroy the space. This protective layer is composed of one or more specialized plastic sheets, which are fully sealed to encapsulate the crawl space.
Home modifications can improve your property’s indoor air quality and overall environment. Our technicians can upgrade access doors into your attic and crawl space to minimize points of entry for rodents. We can install a ventilation system that reduces moisture and reinforces structures to secure your property and protect your family.
Insulation removal is the first step in cleaning your attic. Old and dirty insulation is inefficient and may increase your energy bills. Rodents and other pests may have contaminated the material, leading to an unhealthy home. Our technicians have the protection and expertise to remove old insulation safely.
We can retrofit your attic using batt and roll or foam board insulation upon removal. Regardless of your choice, we’ll follow current installation codes to ensure your home is as efficient as possible.
Radiant barriers are thin sheets of aluminum placed over your attic insulation. According to the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, they stop heat from accumulating in your attic, deflecting approximately 40% of incoming heat. Attic Projects technicians will assess your needs and recommend a reflective radiant barrier based on the conditions we find.
Many people neglect their attic or crawl space because it is only a storage area. However, it can increase rodent activity or lead to a significant amount of mold and dust accumulation. Attic Projects technicians can remove debris and sanitize, eliminating dust and allergens.
Bellingham has a temperate climate characterized by mild winters and beautiful summers. Across most of the area, winter months see average low temperatures near 31 degrees Fahrenheit, while summer brings a warmer average low of around 74 degrees Fahrenheit.
Like much of the Pacific Northwest, Bellingham receives an average of 39 inches of rain yearly. This heightens the importance of having proper attic ventilation. Whether it is rain or snow, some form of precipitation falls 166 days of the year, causing the winter humidity to rise to approximately 86% and summer humidity to hover near 74%.
With some houses in Bellingham dating back to 1856, you can expect to find dirty and infested attics and crawl spaces. Many homes in this region were built pre-World War II, so they lack the built-in seals that modern homes have.
Bellingham has a consistently damp climate, and the resulting moisture is an ideal breeding ground for mold. Nearly 70% of homes have a mold problem, but this can be prevented.
Many rodent species are found in Bellingham, but fortunately, only some will find their way into your home. The rodents you should be most concerned with are:
These creatures carry harmful bacteria that can be transferred through their feces.
Insulation requirements depend on the type of insulation used, but the recommendation for most attics in Bellingham is R-38 or approximately 10 to 14 inches. The right insulation also depends on the age of your home.
