You Never Know What Might Be Lurking In Your Attic
During my buyer's home inspection process a few weeks back, the inspector found a crawl space door in a tiny closet and commenced to climb up to take a look. It was an older home, built in 1960, and at some time in the past years, the attic vent screen had gotten displaced.
The result? The attic of my prospective buyer's home had become a haven for birds...for YEARS, if the scene was anything to go by.
So of course, to protect my buyer, we requested the problem be taken care of prior to closing.
Yesterday we got a copy of the invoice.
- Removal of umpteen dead birds
- 19.5 bags of poo-infested insulation (and these bags weighed 30-40 lbs - I picked one up!)
- Over 30 hours of labor mucking out, disinfecting, fumigating, reblowing insulation, and disposing of waste
- Cost of cleanup and removal - close to $2,000
Verdict? Make sure your attic screens, vents and bird guards are in place.
