Attic insulation prevents your home from becoming too cold or too hot and helps with energy efficiency. Most attics are well insulated but there are times when you need an attic professional to remove and replace the insulation in your attic.
When Is It Time to Remove Attic Insulation?
If you recently had a rodent infestation in your attic, or think you may have other animals nesting in the attic, chances are you will need the insulation removed and replaced. Rodents chew and burrow in your insulation, urinating and defecating all over the attic and ruining the insulation. The harmful and toxic contaminants left behind are unsafe in your home, while the damage they do renders insulation useless.
Our professional contractors from Attic Projects come in and remove the ruined insulation, squeezing into the tight spaces and getting the job done quickly and efficiently. Our technicians are also trained in rodent removal as well as rodent waste removal, ensuring a clean attic space.
Have you noticed a musty odor in your home or evidence of water damage in your attic? You may need to replace the insulation. Wet insulation is a perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. Mold is toxic to your health and breathing it in constantly can cause respiratory issues. Only an attic professional should remove the moldy insulation from your attic.
During attic insulation removal, our contractors will also remove the wet insulation and replace it with new insulation. We can also help you identify the source of moisture and seal up any holes or cracks to prevent water from damaging your insulation.
Older homes may need insulation removed and replaced just simply due to age. Even insulation installed ten years ago may not be as energy-efficient as today’s insulation. If you are uncertain as to whether your older home needs the insulation removed and replaced, contact an attic services company. Our technicians can audit your attic for its energy efficiency and determine if you need to remove your current insulation.
Attic Insulation Removal Process
The process for removing attic insulation greatly depends on the type of insulation currently in your home. Blanket insulation and foam boards are some of the easiest to remove. Although you may be tempted to remove them yourself, we highly recommend you consult a professional first. Spray foam or blown-in insulation should only be removed by an attic professional. This type of insulation is typically removed with special equipment.
Before any attic professional removes insulation, they will perform an audit of your attic, looking for rodents and other pests, and making sure there is no mold or mildew. If any of those things are present, remediation will need to take place before removing and installing new attic insulation.
Attic Projects is a full-service attic company. If our professionals do find evidence of pests or mold on the inspection, our technicians can remove them and professionally clean your attic. Thorough cleaning and sanitation of your attic may be needed when removing old or ruined insulation - which is why homeowners should call on the professionals for the job!
