Why Hire Experts To Remove and Replace your Insulation?
Fiberglass insulation material is used to insulate an estimated 90% of American homes. While this material is inexpensive and extremely effective for retaining heat and dropping energy bills, it does require care when being removed, as inhaling or otherwise contacting it poses mild health risks. Leave your insulation removal and replacement to the experts at Best Attic Cleaning and know that your project will finished safely and hygienically every time.
Mice, rats, and even bats or birds are the most common culprits when it comes to insulation damage. These creatures, when they can get to your attic, readily chew through the insulation, making nests in or above it. Once they’ve settled, the organic material they leave behind causes bacteria, flees, mold, and mildew to spread, damaging the insulation layers further.
When this happens, repairing your property to keep the critters out is an important first step, and replacing your insulation to better maintain your home’s temperature is the second. However, because fiberglass insulation is made from recycled glass or sand spun into tiny strands and layered together, it isn’t something you want to interact with on a regular basis—even if it hasn’t been contaminated. Skin contact with the insulation can cause redness and itching, and breathing or accidentally swallowing it in the air, after it has been disturbed, can cause severe lung and throat irritation.
