Well-insulated attics are important to keeping your house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Pest problems, water damage and aging are just some of the reasons why your insulation might not be doing its job. Replacing your insulation through Attic Abatement can increase energy efficiency and reverse health concerns that come from mold and pest issues.
Signs Your Insulation Needs Replacing
Attics are prime real estate for pests, especially raccoons, bats, squirrels and rodents. These critters tear apart the insulation for nesting and dirty it with their excrement. Squirrels harvest insulation and pack it into the soffits to make their nests. This prevents the attic from ventilating correctly which can lead to ice buildup and excessive moisture.
Some houses have air conditioning units in the attics. If you have contamination from pests or mold, these germs can be spread around the home as the air circulates. Replacing the contaminated insulation will prevent any health issues that may come from these germs.
Too much moisture in the attic can also damage insulation. Poor ventilation, a leaky roof, or a dryer vent not working properly can make the attic too humid and may lead to mold, termites and carpenter ants.
In some cases, your insulation might just be old and has broken down with age. In any of these circumstances it’s a good idea to update your attic insulation.
What is Attic Abatement?
Catseye Pest Control’s Attic Abatement Service begins with complete removal of all old or damaged insulation. Our team will then clean and disinfect the entire attic before installing all new insulation.
If you have pests in your attic, Catseye Pest Control has additional services for removal of pests and sealing of pest entry points that can be done before performing attic abatement. We also provide structural repair services that can correct any ventilation problems that are causing a buildup of moisture.
Attics are often forgotten or ignored areas of the house, but replacing your insulation can have big benefits. Attic abatement will increase energy efficiency, save you money on utility bills and provide peace of mind when it comes to the health risks associated with pests and mold.
