How does the insulation in your home look? Insulation has a tendency to settle and become thinner over time, making it less effective at keeping your home comfortable. When there are moisture issues, it can also harbor mold and other contaminants. Many homes here in Austin have old and damaged insulation that needs to be replaced for greater home comfort and efficiency. We offer professional insulation removal for existing homes as part of the overall process of upgrading your insulation.
A Key Step in the Insulation Process
Damaged insulation cannot effectively control heat transfer in your home, meaning even though your home has insulation, it will continue to be hot in the summer and cold in the winter. When insulation is contaminated with mold or other allergens, it can also undermine your home’s indoor air quality.
Therefore, before installing new, high-performance insulation in your home, it’s vital to remove any old, contaminated, or otherwise damaged insulation.
Trust a Professional with Your Insulation Removal
You may be tempted to remove old or damaged insulation yourself, but doing so can be a hazard to your home and health. First, you run the risk to damaging your home, such as stepping through the floor of your attic. Then, there are the health hazards associated with handling old insulation. Removing old insulation can stir up dust, mold, and other allergens, and some older types of insulation may contain asbestos.
A professional also has the proper equipment and expertise necessary to remove insulation safely and efficiently. In order to protect the health and safety of both you and your home, it’s best to trust a professional with your insulation removal needs.
