Part of our comprehensive pest and termite control service
This specialized material provides all the excellent benefits of quality insulation while also serving as an outstanding pesticide in your attic and inside walls. TAP insulation is environmentally safe, containing a borate material in its paper fibers that pest control professionals use to rid Tampa homes of insects.
Our fully trained and licensed technicians install TAP insulation—a loose-fill cellulose material— with specialized equipment, blowing it in over current insulation. We make this service available to homeowners through our comprehensive pest control services in Tampa as well as through our termite control services. For more information, simply contact us online or call (813) 565-7333.
Insulation can become damaged over time, perhaps because small wildlife get in the area and make tears in the material. No matter how it happens, disturbed or substandard insulation doesn’t provide full benefits to you. Energy bills go up and moisture can further damage the material, which means that your HVAC system will need to work harder to keep you comfortable. Plus, a harder-working HVAC will also unnecessarily cost you money.
Insects and small animals in your attic will naturally leave urine and feces behind, which can translate into significant health risks for you and your family. Here’s how the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) explains one version of the problem: people exposed to rodent urine and droppings can become sick after spores containing rat and mouse waste become airborne. How? People breathe in the spores, and they can get into your ears and eyes, and illness can occur.
Spaces in your home with insect or animal waste can also create the ideal atmosphere for mold growth. Plus, bacteria and other microorganisms will feed off of this organic waste and insects will be attracted to the area. Small wildlife that settles in your attic or walls can also carry diseases that can spread to people: encephalitis, histoplasmosis, tuberculosis, and rabies. Another concern? These animals can introduce parasites to your Tampa home with the elderly, children, and pets most susceptible to the diseases and parasites.
Our skilled, trained, and licensed technicians can inspect the attic in your Tampa home, remove current materials (if needed), and replace it with TAP pest control insulation. We are committed to your satisfaction, just like our other pest control services. As the first step, you can schedule your free inspection online.
First, TAP stands for “thermal, acoustical, pest control,” a type of insulation largely formed out of recycled paper—typically sourced by landfill diversion. Recycled paper saved from the landfill is reduced in size and fed into a disc mill until the material resembles cotton. Next up is a proprietary borate infusion. This creates a loose fill material that’s environmentally sensitive, offering ongoing protection and reduced energy costs.
If conditions are right, this material could last a full century. Factors that could affect longevity include a roof leak, which could shorten the lifespan of TAP insulation blown into your attic. Now compare TAP pest control insulation to traditional insulation which, until optimal conditions, would last only decades, and it’s clear that TAP insulation is the long lasting solution.
No, it isn’t. In fact, this kind of pest control insulation is environmentally friendly, consisting mostly of recycled paper. This material is specially modified through a process that gives it the right texture to be air blown into attics and wall voids. Before that happens, it is infused with a specific kind of borate that pest control professionals are already safely using in numerous applications.
To see how beneficial TAP pest control insulation is, consider what could happen without it. Wildlife could settle in your attic, spreading diseases through the air when their droppings, urine, or saliva is infected. This is what TAP pest control insulation protects your family against, preventing you from being in this type of toxic situation.
First, this highly effective form of insulation can be blown on top of already existing insulation in your Tampa home’s attic. Or, if you’ll have a newly constructed home, this material can seamlessly go into wall voids and the attic to provide superior protection from the start. TAP insulation can significantly reduce energy costs—up to 30 percent per year—keeping homes cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
As another type of benefit, TAP insulation provides superior pest control, protecting your home and family from wildlife like raccoons, squirrels, birds, rodents, and more that might otherwise settle in. These animals could spread diseases both directly and indirectly to people: directly, if people come into contact with them; and indirectly, if people inhale infected airborne spores from animals’ urine, feces, and saliva. Thanks to the specialized, borate-infused TAP insulation, however, you will enjoy ongoing protection.
