The Effects of Animal Activity on Attic Insulation

When a wild animal decides to make its nest in your attic, your insulation is often ripped up, destroyed, and otherwise compromised by feces and urine. Not only does this make for a messy and smelly home, but it causes significant energy loss once the efficiency of the insulation is ruined. Critter Control® of Orlando can remove any soiled or damaged insulation from your attic and replace it in order to get your home back in top shape.

Physical damage is just one of the dangers posed to your attic and insulation by wild animals. Their waste represents a huge health hazard that should be handled by a professional. The trained experts at Critter Control® take the utmost care in removing all contaminated insulation and waste from your home to ensure that your family is not in harm’s way.

Removing soiled attic insulation is not something a homeowner should attempt on their own. The dangers associated with removing insulation from a cramped and contaminated attic are significant. From various diseases to risking inhaling potentially toxic insulation fibers, it’s best to leave it to the pros.

Reasons that you may need to have your attic insulation replaced or removed include:

  • Your attic has become contaminated by animal waste
  • Your insulation has been trampled down by critter activity, reducing its effectiveness
  • Old attic insulation may contain asbestos, which is dangerous to humans and should be replaced

Any attic or insulation issues should be handled as quickly as possible to avoid any unnecessary costs. The technicians at Critter Control® of Orlando will remove and replace your attic insulation and any damaged attic structures safely and efficiently.
