Attics & Crawlspace Cleaning
and Insulation for Gig Harbor Homes

 

Gig Harbor Crawlspace Cleaning & Attic Clean-Outs

Ignoring crawlspaces and attics and their need for regular maintenance is a consistent cause of roof and foundation damage to Gig Harbor businesses and homes. Guardian Home has been in the business for years, so trust us when we tell you how important it is to schedule inspections and cleanouts for these spaces.

But how does this result in structural damage? Throughout our work in Western Washington, we’ve seen mold establishment and growth, leak development and resulting water damage, and pest infestations – all because homeowners and business owners have left their attics and crawlspaces untouched and unmaintained for too long.

To make sure residents and property owners in Gig Harbor have the resources they need to keep these areas in good condition, Guardian Home provides a range of inspection, cleaning, and maintenance services specific to attics and crawlspaces.

Gig Harbor Attic & Crawlspace Services

Attic Cleanouts

In our experience, the only way to truly ensure that your Gig Harbor attic is in good shape is to schedule an annual or bi-annual attic cleanout. This cleanout includes a complete inspection, during which our Guardian Home technician checks for the presence of pollutants, rotten wood, pests, mold, and roof damage. They’ll provide you with a treatment plan recommendation if they find anything that needs to be addressed.

Gig Harbor Crawlspace Cleaning

Scheduling a crawlspace cleaning on a regular basis means that a professional will check the entire area for damage, missing insulation, and pests. This area between the structure and the ground below is prime real estate for unwanted critters. To avoid an infestation and ensuing damage, call Guardian Home to schedule your cleaning. Debris will be removed, insulation will be installed if needed, and the vapor barrier will be swapped out for a new one. 

We Replace Gig Harbor Insulation

It’s likely that most owners of Gig Harbor homes and businesses don’t think much about the status of their insulation. However, if your utility bill has increased unexpectedly, and if your indoor temperature is not as consistent as it used to be, the source of the problem may be thinning or missing insulation. Contact Guardian Home to address the issue. We’ll check out your insulation and, if you’re in need of a new and better quality product, we’ll take out the old stuff and install new insulation.

Vapor Barrier Installation

Most home- and business-owners are probably unaware that they have a vapor barrier installed on the ground below their buildings. The vapor barrier – a 6 mm piece of plastic cut to fit exactly in this space – is important for several reasons. It keeps pests from getting to the crawlspace from underground, prevents moisture accumulation, and thus keeps mold from growing.

Call Guardian Home to install or replace the vapor barrier in your Gig Harbor crawlspace. Our technicians know to accurately measure, cut, and fit the material below your home or building, and we use industrial-grade plastic, buttons, and staples to properly secure a barrier that will last.  

Gig Harbor Pest Control

If you suspect the presence of unwanted critters in your Gig Harbor home, schedule a pest control appointment today. A Guardian Home expert will visit your property and first perform a pest inspection. This includes checking the area for animal droppings, frass, chewed wires, and holes in the wood. Aside from these obvious signs of damage, some pests – such as cockroaches and rats – carry diseases and can present a health risk.

Our pest control experts perform a series of effective and thorough measures to ensure any pest population is eradicated. These include using targeted pesticides and traps. To finish, they make sure all entry and access points are sealed off to keep critters out in the future.
