Unlike organic biological treatments, insects cannot build an immunity to TAP. This EPA-registered pesticide is safe enough to use around pets and people but strong enough to kill ants, cockroaches, silverfish, termites and other pests listed on the EPA label. TAP will form to your attic perfectly, reducing outside noise and maintaining temperature in your Tucson, Oro Valley, and Oracle, AZ home year round!
Our home was hot in the summer and cold in the winter and we had other issues of rodents in our attic that we inherited from the previous owner.
First Inspection initially solved the rodent invasion problem by sealing off all possible entries to our attic from the outside.
After that problem was solved we needed to address the insulation issue which was inadequate and infused with rodent feces and other debris accumulated in attic and the piling up of insulation from all the previous invasions of the attic space from contractors.
Our 3 patios were not insulated nor was our large garage.
First inspection first removed the soiled and useless insulation from our attic and installed can light boxes, sealed around exhaust vents with foam on a Thursday. The following day, on Friday, they installed 170 bags of TAP insulation using their wonderful equipment and did so without making a mess and interrupting our daily living activities.
The results are outstanding as the temperature in our home is consistent throughout even with one unit in the main living area spreading the heat throughout the remainder of the house without the second unit participating at all.
This is true of the air conditioning units as well.
The bottom line is if you have an older home you need to consider First Inspection's insulation upgrade to your attic.
A neighbor who was in the solar industry his entire career said this First Inspection Process was as important and could possibly save as much money over a similar period of time as installing solar panels.
Another advantage that my wife (who hates dusting more than any other household chore) enjoys from this procedure is that dust in the home has been greatly reduced.
As a long time First Inspection customer, I know first hand they do excellent work. After I saw that our attic had a pack rat infestation, I reached out to them for their Remediation service to handle the situation. They provided me pictures of work in progress, did all the work in a timely and professional manner, they even humanely removed the packrats from the attic. Additionally, they were able to use a high end insulation that mitigates further insect/vermin issues as well as helps keep heating and cooling costs down. I'm completely happy with the work and would highly recommend them.
