Insulation Replacement and Animal Contamination Cleanup

Contaminated insulation in an attic in Columbus, Georgia

Animals contaminate or destroy insulation, causing health risks and energy loss

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 literally be pumped throughout a house that has 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 own equipment, and we have our own fully-trained technicians to operate it. We promise you the finest level of insulation installation quality available anywhere.

We removed more than a ton of bat guano, along with the contaminated insulation, from the attic of a house in Alpharetta, Georgia. Now we're installing clean, fresh, energy-efficient insulation to replace it.

Very busy right now. Lots of squirrels and rats in the Birmingham and surrounding areas. Looks like bats are flying already as I’ve got several bat jobs to look at this week. Had a customer yesterday with squirrels and bats.
