Old Water Damage
If your house has suffered water damage or an undetected leak, your fiber-based thermal protection could have been damaged. While newer varieties resist moisture better than before, your home’s original barrier might have gotten wet. This can compress it and lower its R-value. Worse, it can lead to hidden mold and mildew in your attic or basement insulation.
If fungus gets into your heating and air conditioning ducts, it can worsen allergies and lead to other respiratory distress. Insulation removal and replacement with a new layer means cleaner and healthier air throughout your house.
Have four-legged visitors been hiding out in your attic insulation? Many types of critters can get inside but the most common is rodents. They are attracted to various kinds of fiber-based thermal barriers; they shred it, nest in it and use it as a toilet. Rats alone can carry more than 30 different diseases.
Droppings, urine and natural oils may be in your thermal barrier right now. We can do a complete removal and decontamination, and add a fresh replacement. Even more important, we can block the path your tiny intruders took!
Boost Your Energy Efficiency
Is your home as energy efficient as it could be? Not if the current thermal barrier is matted down by old damage. Fibrous insulation relies on thickness to achieve its resistance to the transfer of heat. If it’s compressed, any gaps will be open to temperature changes. Warm air will escape from your home to the outside in winter and into your home during the summer.
If your energy bills have been rising, it’s time to look into it. Let us help!
Expert Insulation Removal
We take full precautions before we take out old material, including blocking vents and ducts. We take care not to stir up any contaminated material, and we use personal protection equipment while inside enclosed areas.
Blanket-type fiberglass is the easiest to remove. We hand-roll it and wrap it securely to reduce the chances of contaminants becoming airborne. And we clean up any dirty areas before we lay a fresh layer. Blown-in fibers are extracted with secure hoses attached to powerful vacuums. Because the vacuum source is outside your home, it creates a negative pressure that ensures fibers will not fly around and contaminate your indoor air space.
Is Insulation Removal Necessary?
Not always. It can save you money to add fresh insulation on top of the base you have now, even if the original layer is dusty or scattered with debris. However, contamination by fungus or bio-hazardous waste is another matter! Call our company and we will perform a thorough inspection.
Count on us for an honest assessment and reliable remediation in attic and basement insulation. Don’t take risks with your family’s health.
Sometimes insulation removal entails small areas. We will do a careful examination and take out only what’s necessary, then add more material to boost your thermal protection. This saves you money and creates better long-term energy savings.
