If you have determined that your home needs new insulation, you may be wondering if removing the old insulation is part of the process. Is the old insulation really that bad? Will insulation removal actually help achieve better results? Fortunately, there are many options for home owners who are installing new insulation, but there are three main reasons why insulation removal may be important.
- Mold Damage – If your home has been taken hostage by mold damage and the mold has embedded itself in your home’s insulation, the only way to truly achieve freedom from this hazard is with insulation removal. Your home will be cleaner and healthier by taking out all of the old insulating materials and cleaning out all signs of mold before adding new insulation to the space.
- Infestations – If you’ve discovered rodent nests and they’ve been using your insulation as a place to call home, insulation removal will help to rid your home of all their left behind “gifts.” Droppings and nest materials will be a thing of the past only when you remove the old insulation, get rid of the pests, and install fresh insulation in your home.
- Green Home Options – If you are taking steps towards achieving a greener home, you may be hoping to add new insulation that more accurately reflects your home sustainability choices. In this case, insulation removal will be effective in helping you achieve a green home.
