Reasons To Remove Insulation

Water Damage

If the attic has suffered water damage after a storm, it is important to have attic insulation removal performed immediately. Wet insulation is not only inefficient but will also encourage mold and mildew, causing health issues.

Old Age

Over the years, building insulation has been improved by leaps and bounds. If your insulation was installed decades ago, likely, it is not as efficient as today’s version. You can remove the old insulation to clean up the spaces and install a new, more efficient insulation with a higher R-Value.

Rodent Infestation

Rats, mice, and raccoons can wreak havoc on your insulation by urinating and chewing through the material. If the insulation is too damaged or contaminated, it is wise to remove it, get rid of the pests, and install a new one for health reasons.

Factors To Consider Before Removing Insulation

Type of Insulation

The attic insulation removal process is highly determined by the insulation you have because some are easy to remove and others are not. If you have foam boards on top of the walls or floors or the blanket type of insulation, you can remove them manually without hiring someone or equipment. However, if you have spray foam or blown-In insulation, you may need a vacuum for the attic insulation removal process.

Contaminated Insulation

Before starting an attic insulation removal, you must be sure that it is not contaminated or dangerous to your health. You can buy a home test kit to check for asbestos and other bacteria or hire a professional to deal with the contamination first.
