The Redi National Difference
We go above, below and beyond to discourage pests.
Redi National has been an industry-leading provider of attic insulation and crawlspace cleanout services for the past 15 years. During this time, Redi has reconstituted thousands of crawlspaces and attics for homeowners to ensure that their homes are better insulated and pest free.
Reconstituting an attic or crawlspace often includes the removal of old, inefficient and/or contaminated insulation and replacing it with new and more efficient insulation. The benefits of this service include increased heating efficiency, decreased energy bills and qualification for immediate tax rebates.
Redi National performs the following services to reconstitute your home’s attic and crawlspace to enhance the efficiency, health and safety of your home:
- Insulation removal
- Insulation installation
- Vapor barrier replacement and installation
- Debris removal
- Rodent and animal carcass removal
- Sanitizing and deodorizing services
- Exclusion of openings and re-entry points
There are many benefits of having your crawlspace and attic reconstituted. First and foremost is the peace of mind homeowners experience knowing that their home is better insulated (saving money on energy bills) and free of not only rodents, but also secondary pests such as carpet beetles, flies and mites. A clean, well-insulated attic and crawlspace enhances the efficiency, health and safety of your home and family. In addition, Redi National excludes openings and other entry points to prevent unwanted pests from re-entering these areas. All of our service technicians take pride in each job they perform and have the knowledge and expertise required to treat the most challenging spaces.
There are also many financial incentives offered by state and federal governments that help with the cost of re-insulating your home. Having Redi National perform your attic and crawlspace work will qualify you for these immediate federal tax credits and rebates. We will provide you with all the details necessary to take advantage of these tax credits and rebates. In addition, we are able to offer instant rebates at the time of estimate so there is no need to fill out any paperwork or wait for reimbursement checks. This includes all rebates offered by state and local energy companies.

Before our technicians perform any work, we prepare the entire area and path leading to your crawlspace. This helps protect the rest of your home from further contamination.
Once inside the crawlspace, our technicians will remove all contaminated insulation, vapor barrier, debris and rodent or other animal carcasses. During this process, we use a HEPA filter vacuum to maintain a healthy environment and eliminate the possibility of air contamination. Once we have thoroughly cleaned the crawlspace, a decontaminating /deodorizing spray is applied to further sanitize the crawlspace.
All contaminated insulation, feces, vapor barrier and debris will be bagged in specialized disposal bags designed to trap all contaminants.
Before re-installing the new insulation and vapor barrier, Redi National will seal all crawlspace entry points that rodents might use. The most important part of this process is to determine how they entered the home and seal each point of entry in order to keep the pests out permanently. Since rats can get into openings the size of a dime, Redi National technicians use their years of experience to detect the infiltration point(s). This fact alone makes us the best company for the job.
Once the cleanup, decontamination and exclusion work is completed, a Redi National technician will then install new insulation and vapor barrier to code, while abiding by all regulations.
Before our technicians perform any work, we prepare the entire area and path leading to your attic. This helps to protect the rest of your home from further contamination.
Typically, there are two types of insulation used in the attic: loose fill (blown-in) insulation or batted insulation, which comes in strips or rolls. For loose-fill insulation, Redi National utilizes a specialized vacuum system connected to approximately 150 feet of hose. The vacuum is positioned outside the home and a large volume filter bag is used to collect the insulation. This process is not only efficient, but also keeps the home from being further contaminated by the insulation removed from the attic. Batted insulation will be bagged and properly removed in 3M industrial strength trash bags. Redi National will then use a HEPA filter vacuum to remove all remaining contaminants.
Before reinstalling new insulation, Redi National will seal all attic entry points utilized by rodents and birds. This ensures your attic will be closed off and pests won’t be able to infiltrate. Once Redi National has thoroughly cleaned and excluded the attic, a decontamination/deodorizing spray is used to further sanitize the space.
Redi National will then install new insulation (blown or batted) to code. Redi National technicians are trained in installing insulation while abiding by all regulations.
As part of our Quality Assurance Program and guaranteed customer satisfaction, all work is inspected by a Redi National Supervisor to confirm that each job passes our 15-point quality checklist. This ensures all work is completed to Redi National’s and our customers’ high standards.
