Attic Insulation and Rodent Proofing in Westchester
Attic Insulation and Rodent Proofing in Westchester. As attics are generally not commonly used, they are not furnished like the rest of our homes, and there are many openings through which rodents can travel around your home. Because of these reasons, attics are one of the more commonly infested areas of your home and will be highly contaminated with bacteria they carry as well as from their urine and feces and the carcasses of dead rodents. When you call the specialists from Neo Attic Solutions, we will do the dirty work for you and get your attic cleaned up and decontaminated.
Air Seal & Install High-Performance Insulation
Once your home performance expert has gathered more information about your attic, they can seal air leaks and install high-performance insulation as needed for optimal home comfort and efficiency. Air sealing with spray foam insulation eliminates holes and gaps that allow air to travel between the attic and your living spaces, while high-performance insulation creates a thermal barrier that prevents heat transfer into and out of the attic. An experienced home performance specialist will select the best insulation materials for your attic depending on your needs and budget.
Ensure Proper Attic Ventilation
Many homeowners focus on air sealing and insulation in the attic while neglecting the importance of attic ventilation. Proper attic ventilation, when combined with air sealing and professionally installed insulation, cools the attic down during warmer months, when heat might otherwise enter through the roof and accumulate in the attic. It also allows warm, moisture-filled air to escape the attic during colder months. This protects your attic and the structure of your home from water damage, as it prevents moisture from condensing on rafters, trusses, and other attic structures. Ultimately, proper attic ventilation can protect your home from fluctuating temperatures, help keep energy bills down, and prevent mold and rotting due to water damage.

It is not uncommon to see rats outside, scurrying about, scavenging for food in dumpsters and trash bins, but when you see them right outside your home, you may be in the process of having your house infested with rats, which can be a very serious problem that may require the help of an exterminator to solve. If you suspect that rats may be entering your home, you need to check your home’s exterior for any entry holes they may be able to squeeze into (rats can squeeze into holes as small as a quarter) and patch them up. As rats reproduce very quickly, a few of these rodents in your home can quickly grow into a full-blown infestation.
