The condition of your attic or crawl space is important to the health of your home and the well-being of everyone who lives there.
These areas are some of the most neglected areas of the home. Every day we see insulation that has been pulled down and contaminated with rodent droppings, urine, food caches, nesting materials, and even rodent corpses. Ducting is chewed through and nested in, vapor barriers are damaged, improperly set down or non-existent, and excessive moisture has led to mold and rotting wood. We find vents improperly installed or even blocked completely. Mr. Attic specializes in attic and crawl space cleaning so that we can fix and ideally prevent these kinds of problems in your home.

How it Works
When cleaning attics and crawl spaces, we go in and remove what doesn’t belong and take out everything that could degrade the energy efficiency and air quality of your home—from feces to fungi. After we clean up the space, we seal up holes so that rodents and other animals can’t access your crawl space in the future. We take all the necessary precautions to ensure the inside and outside of your home remain a clean, healthy environment from the time we arrive to the time we leave.
We provide cleaning services to help keep your family’s health in good standing. We’ve been cleaning up attic messes throughout the East Bay for over 10 years, including areas such as Walnut Creek, Concord, Danville, Lafayette, San Ramon, Oakland, Berkeley, Martinez, San Rafael, and Antioch.

Save Money on Utilities
Did you know that proper insulation actually saves you money in the long run? Attic and crawl space insulation prevents the loss of heat in the winter and prevents hot air from entering your home in the summer by resisting heat flow. This is called the Stack Effect, which is how air flows through your house in both hot and cold weather.
Heat flow is a critical element in your energy usage.
In the winter, the heat produced by your heating system moves naturally to the unheated spaces such as attics, garages, basements, and crawl spaces—or directly outdoors. To make up for this loss, your home heating system needs to run more often to keep a constant indoor temperature. Well-insulated attics and crawl spaces will prevent heat loss and keep your house warm.
In the summer, heat flows into your home, making your air conditioner work harder to keep the inside cool. Attic and crawl space insulation will help keep that heat out while also keeping your energy bills in check.
