It is a great idea for upgrading existing attic insulation, but first, you may have to take care of previously-installed insulation. There are many reasons to remove existing attic insulation, ranging from a decrease in effectiveness over time as the insulation has settled, to vermin infestation and to simply wanting to remove old insulation. Our trained experts are able to effectively remove existing attic insulation cleanly, without leaving a mess.
Why Go for Attic Insulation Removal in Mississauga?
Homeowners have many different reasons for removing the insulation from their attic. A bungalow may be under construction with the addition of a second floor. All loose insulation that is in your attic, good or bad, should be removed when the roof is taken off to prevent wind from distributing your insulation throughout your neighborhood. Animals may have found a way to enter in the area creating a nice home for themselves but with a family of squirrels, birds, etc, feces and urine can cause a lot of damage to the ceiling not to mention the harm it will cause to the people living in the home.
At Eco Spray Insulation, we also provide attic insulation removal in Mississauga for cases where there has been a fire in the home since the insulation will absorb the odor from the smoke. We also remove the attic insulation in cases where the homeowners have discovered that someone in the home is allergic to what is there. And in these cases, they have us remove everything completely and then replace all of the insulation with a different material.
Why You Need to Replace Old Insulation
Especially when working with batting, there are many instances where you can simply install new insulation over the old one. But unfortunately, this is not always the case. Our professional team can provide accurate information on this after inspection. There are instances where you need to remove old insulation such as: after wildlife or pest removal, a leaking roof or other moisture issues, mold or mildew on insulation, etc.
It is dangerous to work in an attic that is not properly ventilated, working in tight spaces and with unstable attic floors. Here at Eco Spray Insulation, our professionals are used to working in all kinds of spaces and environments and will do a better job removing the old insulation. Also, our team removes toxic material without contaminating the rest of the home and knows how to dispose of it safely.
Upgrading the Home Means Upgrading Quality of Life
As we mentioned above, insulation that is too old or has been damaged poses health risks as well as increased cost considerations for homeowners. Air quality because of the fibrous nature of older insulation, may be compromised because of airborne particles released by broken and decomposing insulation. But air quality may be also compromised by panels that restrict proper air flow leading to mold development and further contamination of the home’s air. Allergic type symptoms could be a signal that there may be a problem with the home’s insulation and air flow.
Choose a Professional Attic Insulation Removal
Many homeowners in Mississauga pride themselves on being able to DIY a wide range of home improvements and maintenance projects. However, some jobs should be left to professionals, and insulation removal is one of them for multiple reasons such as:
Your old insulation could be infested – It is common for rodents, insects, and other animals to make themselves at home in your attic, basement, or even inside your walls. When this happens, removing insulation can become hazardous because you may encounter unwelcome guests. But more likely is that you will come into contact with animal droppings, which can carry pathogens that may cause potentially serious diseases.
Your old insulation could be dangerous – if your house was built before 1990 and the insulation was never updated, there is a chance it could contain asbestos. Which is a material famous for its fire retardant properties but is also infamous for causing serious, chronic, and fatal respiratory problems.
Your old insulation could be mouldy – Insulation that becomes wet after a flood or storm needs to be replaced. If this happens you may be dealing with serious mold and mildew buildup in your insulation. So, in these cases trying to remove it yourself could result in exposure to dangerous spores.
Your safety is at stake – An inexperienced person may end up spreading harmful contaminants throughout the entire house. While professionals use specialized equipment and tools that allow them to remove potentially contaminated insulation safely without endangering your family.
