TACOMA CRAWL SPACE & ATTIC CLEANING
Crawl Space and attics may become clogged with debris limiting access for cleaning or repairs. Our crawl space and attic clean-out job starts with removing all debris, rodent feces, loose roof shingles, or any other junk.
After the crawl space and attic debris removal, mold spores growing on surfaces such as mold and mildew require removal. Mold can be dangerous, and some variations are hard to see. We use a special spray compound to remove mold. We also offer a non-toxic and toxic method depending on the severity of the mold growth.
The awful odor in your home may be dead animals in the crawl space. We safely dispose of any animal droppings and carcasses. Specially formulated sanitizing and deodorizing sprays remove excess contaminants.
A crawl space’s insulation can serve as a breeding ground for pests, which chew and damage the insulation. Before sealing up the crawl space, we will remove any damaged or torn materials.
Air sealing is an important step before installing new insulation. All plumbing, ducting, holes, gaps, or nooks can cause air leaks which will cause warm or cold air to escape from the inside of your home which is one of the leading causes of higher energy bills.
After proper removal, disinfecting, and air sealing are completed it is time for the new insulation to be installed. All insulation installs that are done by Insulation Co. follow the Washington State code so you can rest assured that if you decide to sell your home you will have no issues!
Moisture naturally rises into a house, affecting wood, insulation, and drywall. We can install a vapor barrier to protect your home’s crawl space by delaying the migration of water vapor. It is critical to properly install a vapor barrier. If not installed by a professional this can cause more moisture-related problems.

EXPERT CRAWL SPACE AND ATTIC INSULATION REPLACEMENT AND INSTALLATION
Insulation Co. does crawl space and attic insulation replacement as well as crawl space and attic cleaning. We have more than 25 years of combined experience replacing old, soiled, or damaged insulation. Crawl spaces consist of two types: ventilated and unventilated. Ventilated crawl spaces offer better moisture protection. Generally, we install rolled fiberglass insulation between floor joists and against the subfloors. Unventilated crawl spaces need insulation along the foundation walls. Consequently, ducts and pipes do not need to be separately insulated. An unventilated crawl space requires less insulation. Additionally, we recommend installing a waterproofing agent like a vapor barrier to protect your home from damage.
CRAWL SPACE AND ATTIC AIR SEAL
Your dry and freshly insulated crawl space and attic are at the top of every rodent’s dream home list. Bats, rats, mice, and other pests can quickly damage insulation and spread disease into your home’s air. Since up to 40% of the air in your home is drawn in through the crawl space, it is crucial to keep rodents away.
Our animal & rodent exclusion services include:
- Foundation entry point sealing
- Crawl space access door replacement
- Ventilation screen repair/replacement

FAQ'S ABOUT ATTIC AND CRAWL SPACE MOLD REMOVAL
How Do You Spot Mold in the Attic or Crawl Space?
While inspecting the attic, check for discoloration, dampness, and unusual odors. Colored spots are the most common sign of mold. Mold rapidly multiplies, so it is not uncommon to find large areas affected by it. We suggest inspecting the attic once every six months.

Mold has many variants and colors. White mold grows in damp areas, while black mold grows in warm regions. Fungi and other molds are yellow or green.
Black mold is dangerous and causes health hazards. Be aware not to touch, inhale, or consume any mold. Mold can cause severe health complications such as allergies, shortness of breath, and asthma.
What is Attic & Crawl Space Mold Remediation?
Mold remediation in the attic refers to the process of removing harmful mold. The mold is thoroughly cleaned, tested, and contained. By stopping mold at the source, we ensure it will not return.
What Are the Reasons for Mold Growth?
Mold requires three things to grow: organic materials, oxygen, and water. Common reasons for attic mold include leaks, poor ventilation, condensation, and high humidity.
