With the proliferation of primarily rats, but also including mice, bats, raccoons and bird activity in the Okanagan, it is not uncommon to find attics (and other areas of the home) severely soiled by feces and urine. These droppings may contain Hantavirus and other pathogens, which are hazardous to your health and a healthy living environment. Ridding the space of these uninvited guests is of primary importance.
Remediation efforts involve removal of the existing soiled insulation (usually down to the vapor barrier) barring access holes, sanitizing, bacteria spraying, and reinstallation of fresh insulation. As many older homes are not up to current insulation code we are able to provide the required R50 thermal barrier through this process.

Our insulation technician is widely regarded as the best in the industry. We use only the best bacteria spray available and are constantly in touch with laboratories for updates to the performance capabilities.
