Insulation Remove/Reapplication, Decontamination
Attic Flooring Installation
Insulation Remove/Reapplication: Insulation can become damaged in a number of ways. In many cases, insects & animals are the culprits. Insects, squirrels, mice, and other critters are notorious for making their nests in your attics and ruining the effectiveness of the insulation & bringing many diseases and germs.
Most insulating materials are designed to keep their shape for decades. However, they can still settle or press down over time. When the thickness drops, the material is no longer as strong as it once was. Today’s insulation is far superior to the stuff sold 15-20 years ago. In some situation, you won’t need to fully replace it. Simply adding another top layer should be sufficient. The U.S. Dept. of Energy recommends certain levels of insulating material based on the area of the country in which you live. For Georgia, most recommendations are between 10 to 15 inches of Insulation in the attic. Adding heavy layers of insulation in an attic can drastically restrict airflow and ventilation. This creates moisture issues on the top floor and in severe cases, can even lead to a mold problem which would affect the quality of the air throughout the interior of the property
Mold and mildew can threaten the health of everyone in your household. When portions of insulating material harbor mold spores, then you should replace it. Even if the material dries out, mold spores can become airborne and travel to other wet areas of the house. If you catch it early enough, then you’ll only need to replace a small section of insulation.
Since tattered insulation cannot retain heat properly, it is unable to provide the benefits it once did and it must be replaced. The same goes for wet insulation caused by a leaky roof.

The flooring can pave the way for you to be able to finish off the attic in the future and can help you access your attic by making it easier to walk on and generally a safer environment to be in.

Light & Minor Electrical: Minor problems with light fixtures or electric outlets in your house are a good time to get help. A two plug outlet where only one plug works or a light fixture that sputters on and off are annoying and should be repaired. There are two great reasons to change to more energy-efficient light fittings and lamps: you save money, and you help your organization to be more environmentally friendly. Safety is a key issue when doing any kind of electrical project especially when a repair calls for messing around with live wires, outlets, ceiling fans installations, or light fixtures. When working on any sort of wiring project, it is important to use the right wiring and connectors. For example, inside wiring that stays warm and dry will not be safe to use in external outlets where water can be a hazard.
