Worker insulate the attic with mineral wool – Old Insulation removal/installation in Berkeley CA | Residential & Commercial Insulation near me
Areas in your home that need to be well insulated include the attic, walls, crawl space and basements.
The common reasons why homeowners need to remove their insulation are; either because the insulation is too old and has lost its R-value, rodents have nested in the insulation, the insulation has been water damaged and it leads to mold or mildew, and lastly in very rare occasions the insulation is smoked damaged.
Removing old insulation is not easy, having the right equipment and personal protection can help a lot to get the job done. It is important to periodically have inspections of the attic and crawl space to catch any problems before they get to bad. In a worst-case scenario, the insulation may require removal in order to eliminate pre-existing materials that are dangerous and harmful (sometimes hazardous), like vermiculite that contains asbestos. Insulation has life expectancy of about 20 years. Rodents nesting in the insulation is the primary reason in the United States why homeowners need to replace the insulation. It is impossible to effectively clean insulation since most insulation materials are made out of fiber. Any attempt to clean or vacuum insulation will be inoperative, as insulation absorbs rodents urine and scents. In these specific cases damaged insulations need to be removed to efficiently eliminate rodents scent and areas should be disinfected to kill bacteria left by rodents. Removing contaminated insulation is an important improvement for your home since damaged insulation can cause structural damage and can directly affect the air quality inside your home. Poor air quality can cause major health issues and put you and your family in danger.
