There are so many benefits to your home having a well insulated attic. An insulated attic helps lower your energy bills by keeping your house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. According to the Department of Energy, an attic that is well insulated can reduce your energy bill by 15%. Unfortunately, certain situations can cause the insulation to become damaged. When this happens, you might need attic insulation removal and replacement.
Our team of highly trained technicians at DeVere Insulation Home Performance in Baltimore uses equipment designed specifically for removing old insulation from your attic, ensuring damaged insulation and anything in it remains contained and does not contaminate other occupied space. Additionally, we take precautions to ensure your house or commercial property isn’t affected by the attic insulation removal process.
What Causes Insulation Damage?
You might be asking yourself what causes damage to insulation. Although attics are enclosed, the insulation can become damaged if it is exposed to pests or any outdoor elements. Pests cause the most extensive damage to attic insulation since they enter through many small openings in the structure of the home. They are known to build nests in fiberglass insulation and leave behind waste, which can be a health risk or attract other pests.
If your insulation becomes wet due to a roof leak or a bad thunderstorm, there’s a chance it may dry without insulation removal services. If it doesn’t dry completely, wet insulation can damage your home’s structure. If your attic insulation has been damaged by pests or moisture, it is best to call our team of professionals. We can come to your property to evaluate the situation and recommend a solution for you. Here are some of the most common reasons why insulation removal is necessary:
- Turn the attic into a livable and usable space
- Replace it with newer, more energy efficient insulation
- Mold and mildew contamination
- Insulation is wet and full of moisture
- Fire or smoke damage
