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, and common or flying squirrels get into an attic, they contaminate the insulation with urine, feces, shed fur, parasites and other contaminants.

Unless removed, these disease-causing contaminants will remain in your home's insulation 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.

Not only does this create an unhealthy situation, but the odors left behind from animal wastes and other by-products this can actually attract other animals (as well as insect pests) to the attic.

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 full or partial attic insulation removal as part of our animal control work. We can't remove the contamination without removing some of 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.

Better yet, we can re-insulate your attic using the finest quality materials, installed at or above all codes and industry standards, and at competitive rates. We carry all necessary insurance and are fully licensed for this work, and we promise you the finest level of quality available anywhere.

Getting your insulation replaced will not only freshen up your attic or crawl by removing animal contaminants, but it may save you money in energy costs, as well. We use only the finest quality insulation products, many of which have higher R-values than products available years ago. In addition, as old insulation becomes compacted, it loses some of its insulating ability and becomes less efficient.
