Damaged insulation can present many concerns. Birds, rodents, or other animals will often find ways into attics or ventilation ducts. When the animal displaces insulation to build their nest, it creates areas of extreme heating/cooling energy loss in your home. These areas provide a safe, warm area to build nests or dens, but cause concern for the homeowner. Any animal or pest that creates a nest inside the attic area, ceiling, floor, or walls of your home will often use anything available for their building materials. Most often, this material is insulation. The insulation gets saturated with the animal’s urine and feces — not just in the nest area, but throughout the entire area it travels. This poses a very serious health risk; animal waste leaves toxic vapours in the air that are harmful to humans.
Insulation that has been exposed to water (either from leakage or excess humidity) can pose a potential long term hazard for both the home and its occupants. Mould can be a very serious concern when insulation has become saturated with moisture; it can affect every area of the home and cause illness. Mould can spread throughout the walls or ceiling, releasing harmful spores into the air and damaging the structure of the home. Removing any moist or contaminated insulation is essential to protecting yourself and your home.
Our technicians are specially trained to ensure harmful contaminants aren’t spread through your home during the removal process. All insulation is removed with our specialized vacuum and transferred directly outside into the removal bag, providing a clean and effective process.
