Insulation Replacement and Animal Contamination Cleanup
When animals like bats, raccoons, roof rats, gray squirrels, or flying squirrels get into an attic, they contaminate the insulation with urine, feces, shed fur, parasites, and other contaminants.
Unless the insulation is removed, these disease-causing contaminants will contaminate your home literally forever, creating an unhealthful condition that remains long after the animals are gone. Disease-causing organisms associated with animal wastes can get into the living area of a house by riding air currents, or they can be pumped throughout a house with hot-air heat or central air conditioning installed in the attic.
Not only does this create an unhealthy situation, but the odors left behind from animal wastes and other by-products can actually attract other animals (as well as insect pests) to the attic. In addition, insulation that has been flattened out by animals walking on top of it loses most of its insulating ability, thus increasing your heating and cooling costs.
That’s why a complete animal removal job sometimes includes removing and replacing any contaminated insulation. If animals have been in your attic for an extended period of time, the chances are that they’ve made a real mess of your insulation, and it most likely will need to be replaced.
Contaminated Insulation Replacement
Rid-A-Critter offers attic insulation removal as part of our animal control work. We can’t remove the contamination without removing the insulation, and after we remove it, you’ll need to have it replaced. (You wouldn’t want us putting the old, dirty stuff back in, after all.) Having us do the work while we’re on-site can save you time and money.
In addition to solving the animal contamination problem, we re-insulate your attic using the finest quality modern insulation materials, installed at or above all codes and industry standards and at competitive rates. Most of these products have higher R-values than products available years ago and will help keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
We carry all necessary insurance and are fully licensed for this work. We own our equipment, and we have our own fully-trained technicians to operate it. We promise you the finest level of insulation installation quality available anywhere.
