Why Remove Old Insulation?

In this situation, leaks or water seeping through your roof or attic can result in wet insulation. This can lead to water damage, mold growth, and all types of structural degradation. Removing your old insulation allows for proper inspection of your attic condition and prevents these issues from occurring. 

Important to realize that over the years, your insulation wears down and becomes less effective at temperature control. Innovation in insulation technology is rapidly advancing, leaving your old insulation much less effective in filtering out dust and allergens in the air or in creating a warm and comfortable living environment.

In due time, old Insulation can be an attractive nesting ground for rats, mice, birds, and raccoons. By inspecting and removing old insulation, you can ensure you don’t meet unwanted roommates or face any health concerns.

Above all left untreated, wet insulation can be a breeding ground for mold. Rather than being reactive to new mold development, a complete insulation replacement will attack the issue at the source and provide you peace of mind.

Factors to Consider When Removing Insulation From the Attic

Type of Insulation

In recent years, blown-in insulation has gained popularity as the primary choice for insulation. Before installing blown-in, it is essential to remove existing insulation materials like fiberglass, mineral wool, and blown-in insulation. Each type necessitates a distinct approach to ensure thorough preparation for the installation of new insulation.

Contaminated insulation

You’ll want your insulation contractor to thoroughly investigate contaminants such as mold and asbestos before the removal and disposal process.

Safety Precautions

Safety is a big concern when removing insulation. You want to ensure the removal team wears the proper gear and uses the proper techniques to contain and transport the hazardous material from your home.

Benefits of Attic Insulation Removal

Mold Prevention

If mold is already present, removal allows you to rid your home of the current infestation and clean the area. Once removed, our team can adequately identify and address the source of the mold and make a plan to protect you from future mold growth.

Pest and Rodent Exclusion

We clean, disinfect, and deodorize your attic. This step is important to preventing the spread of potential diseases and deterring future rodent infestations. We do a thorough inspection of your space, removing existing rodents and rodent nests as well as sealing off any identified entry points to block rodents from entering into your attic, giving you peace of mind for healthy and pest-free living.

Preparation for Upgrades

Rather than periodically patching and replacing old insulation, complete removal allows you to upgrade to a new, more efficient insulation option with superior performance and energy efficiency.

Improved Indoor Air Quality

As insulation ages, it collects dust and allergens, slowly reducing its ability to correctly filter out the air you breathe. Old insulation can also become a breeding ground for mold and mildew, worsening your home’s air quality. Complete removal and new insulation will drastically improve the air you breathe.

Identification of Underlying Issues

Once your old insulation is cleared out, our team has a clear field of vision of your attic, allowing us better to identify potential damages or vulnerabilities in your space. Leaks, mold damage, compromised roofing, and other issues can be addressed before your new insulation is installed.

Health Considerations

If your current insulation has been contaminated by mold, pests, or other damages, there are certain health concerns you may be at risk for. Similarly, insulation that is over 10 years old may contain formaldehyde, which can pose concerns for carcinogens and long term health issues. Reinstating proper air filtration with new insulation can drastically enhance air quality and improve your overall health.

Our team is equipped with top-of-the-line protective gear and trained in the latest insulation removal techniques to leave you with peace of mind that your home is in the best hands possible.

Our team can remove any live or dead rodents if furry friends are an issue. We offer additional rodent exclusion and sealing services that may be beneficial depending on the severity of the infestation. We thoroughly clean all lingering pest remnants, ensuring your attic is clean and ready for new insulation.

More than damaging your old insulation, water can affect the structural integrity of your home, which is why we prioritize treating any signs of water damage. Our team will evaluate and recommend comprehensive solutions to existing and addressing potential vulnerabilities to attic ventilation or in your attic space. Before installation, we dry out your attic and treat the area, combating further growth.

Once all insulation has been removed and the area has been thoroughly cleaned and deodorized, it’s time to install your new insulation! We adhere to all Washington State Energy Code (WSEC) guidelines to ensure your home is up to code and you will be staying warm! We recommend blow-in insulation as the most functional option as it forms itself into every inch of your attic, filling in small gaps and creating an air-tight seal in your space. Traditional batting insulation comes in pre-cut sections that do not offer a custom-made fit to your space and will leave you with gaps allowing for air to leak in and out of your attic. Our team is trained in all types of insulation installation and is ready to tackle all insulation needs.

Lastly, we’ll recycle applicable materials and carefully discard hazardous and contaminated materials according to local guidelines. We strive to be environmentally conscious in all stages of installation and removal. We always look for ways to improve our process and be eco-friendly.
