The energy experts at USA Insulation furnish attics with heat-absorbing blankets of loose-fill fiberglass and formaldehyde-free insulation. After wrapping attic hatches with batten insulation, USA technicians deploy up to 200 square feet of Johns Manville Climate Pro R-19 insulation, sealing in heat and obsolete VHS home movies lining your attic. All USA Insulation is free of CFCs, safe for the environment, and can help to decrease monthly energy bills and the release of greenhouse gases. USA Insulation schedules appointments 6:30 a.m.–7:30 p.m., Monday–Friday; for an additional cost the company can also provide homeowners with complimentary baffles and attic rulers, as well as air-seal recessed lights and ceiling fans ($35 each). Each additional square foot is $1.29.
When it comes to keeping your home clean, there's only so much you can do alone. After the sinks have been scrubbed and the pile of laundry has been conquered, there may still be dust lurking somewhere sinister—in the vents that run through your home. Thankfully, that's where All Services Pro comes in. The family-owned company's licensed technicians have an average of 10 years of experience, so they know exactly what to do when they come across dust, mold, and ghostly apparitions. Their job only just begins inside the walls, though. After they're done removing allergens and particles, they can head outside to pressure-wash the exterior, clean the chimney, and remove leaves from gutters.
