Attic Insulation Removal and Clean Up Services

 

 

Over the years your Attic Insulation will get damaged and need to be removed. Typically insulation that has been in the attic for 30+ Years will build up lots of dust, rodent/pest droppings, moisture and become very inefficient. Most houses have had the same insulation in their attic for 30-60+ Years and in most cases the New Insulation will be installed over the old, damaged, rodent infested insulation. Other issues occur in the attic to cause your insulation to need to be replaced, such as time, moisture, rodent/pest activity, incorrectly installed insulation & unventilated attics. 

When the insulation in your attic is removed you get a chance to remove 50+ years of build up and start fresh. There is no way to know what is exactly under your insulation unless you remove it. Majority of attics have or have had rodent or pest activities at some point in the lifespan of the house. Another major benefit is that you get a chance do complete Attic Air Sealing. That is very important because when old insulation is present you will not be able to Air Seal properly. Air sealing occurs on all ceiling fixtures such as recessed lights, ceiling fans, lighting fixtures, sound speakers, bathroom fans and any other fixture that is cut into the ceiling. Typically those air leakages are not seen because the trim of the light or other fixture covers up the gap between the unit and the ceiling. When adding up all the gaps throughout an average house, the size of the gap will resemeble the sized of a Basketball in your ceiling. Some homes will have more light fixtures and have gaps the size of multiple basketballs. Even if you put the best and highest R-Value insulation those gaps will still have air flow going through them. 

A percentage of the Air you breathe in your home comes from the Attic and Crawlspace areas. The attic is usually filled with old insulation that have rodent droppings and other contaminants. The more air gaps you have in your ceiling, the more of that air that you will be breathing in your home. That is why removing the old insulation is very important to not only the efficency of your home but a major factor in the indoor air quality in your house.
