Reasons To Use Attic Boys

Batt Infestations in Attics

In the Midwest, it’s common for bats to roost in attics, especially when female bats seek safe spaces to give birth. Unfortunately, bat infestations can severely impact indoor air quality. Bat droppings, or guano, can cause histoplasmosis, an infection triggered by inhaling spores from fungi found in bird and bat droppings. When guano becomes airborne, it poses a significant health risk to homeowners.

Raccoon Infestations in Attics

Raccoons frequently invade attics, particularly in winter, searching for warmth. These crafty creatures find unique ways to enter attics and homes and cause significant damage. Raccoons can tear apart drywall, create unsanitary conditions with excessive droppings and urine, damage HVAC ductwork, and create openings in soffits and roofs that allow water and weather elements to infiltrate.

Mold in Attic Spaces

In southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois, mold growth in attics is a common issue. It often results from inadequate insulation or ventilation. Poorly insulated attics suffer from condensation due to temperature differences, while improperly ventilated attics experience excessive heat and moisture buildup. Other causes include improperly exhausted bathroom vent fans, roof leaks, algae buildup on shingles, and ductwork condensation. Mold in attics signals underlying issues that can compromise home health and roof integrity, posing significant health risks and potentially halting home transactions during inspections.

Lack of Insulation

Insufficient insulation in attics is a widespread problem. An inadequately insulated attic leads to energy inefficiency, as conditioned air escapes, wasting energy and increasing costs. Additionally, under-insulated attics can suffer from roof decking condensation, leading to mold growth and premature shingle failure. Fortunately, enhancing attic insulation is a straightforward and cost-effective solution.

Poor Attic Ventilation

Improper attic ventilation can result in mold growth and excessive heat buildup, leading to shingle failure. Modern building practices recommend passive ventilation systems, including soffit vents and continuous ridge vents. For older homes, retrofitting ventilation with solar-powered attic fans can effectively exhaust hot air, maintaining a healthy attic environment.
