Insulation can lose its effectiveness over time for several reasons and can begin to break down especially if moisture, pests, or other contaminants start affecting it.
For these reasons, many homes in Southeastern Wisconsin are in need of updated insulation, and some require insulation removal. Our insulation experts will inspect your old insulation to determine if removal is necessary before the installation of any new insulation.
If your insulation is wet, moldy or rodent infested, you’ll want it removed before new insulation is installed in your home. Not only is it doing you no service once it’s disturbed and compacted, but if it’s wet or infested, it can actually do you harm.
Mold, mildew and other contaminants in wet insulation will find their way into your living area, deteriorating your indoor air quality. These contaminants are known health hazards, so the sooner the old insulation is removed, the better it is for the health of you and your family.
Insulation removal may appear to be something you can tackle yourself, but it needs to be done properly to ensure your health and safety. Also, the money you might potentially save is not worth the risk of stepping through your ceiling, breathing in mold and allergens or possibly stirring up asbestos, commonly used in older loose-fill attic and wall insulation.
