    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.

    Why Hire Professionals For Attic Insulation Removal?

    The economical thing to do is to remove the insulation on your own; after all, how hard can it be? While that may be true, hiring a professional to do the job for you comes with a plethora of advantages.

    For one, the attic insulation removal company knows how to dispose of the insulation safely.

    Proper equipment. Professionals have all the necessary equipment to remove the insulation from your house, even in those hard-to-reach places. They also come dressed in the right protective gear, including masks, so they are not exposed to contaminants.

    If the insulation is contaminated, it will be risky and even dangerous if it is blown into the rest of the house. Professionals provide insulation removal safely, ensuring that the particles will not be blown into the air or the house.

    After performing a removal, professionals can assess the area and determine how much insulation will be enough to replace the old one and what type is best suited for every space. They will also conduct an energy inspection and tell you how much R-value you require.
