Contaminated Insulation Removal and Replacement

Insulation badly contaminated with animal droppings in the attic of a house in Dunlap Tennessee

One of the many destructive things that animals do when they get into buildings is cause damage to the insulation. This can take the form of contaminating the insulation with their poop and pee; tearing it away from between the studs, rafters, and joists; clawing at the vapor barrier; flattening out insulation by running across it; using insulation as nesting material; or any combination of the above.

Wikldlife damage and contamination of insulation results in health risks, odors, and economic harm. Animal droppings and urine are associated with many different diseases; and when insulation is contaminated with these substances, it become a fomite, which is basically a germ dispenser. In many cases, microorganisms will actually use the insulation as part of their breeding medium, sort of like having a huge Petri dish is your attic, basement, or crawl space.

The other obvious problem with insulation damage is that insulation that is torn down or flattened out doesn't insulate very well, if at all. The way insulation works is that the air trapped in the insulation is what provides most of its insulating ability. Insulation that has been flattened by animals running over it has had the air squeezed out of it, which dramatically reduces its insulating ability. That costs you more money in heating and cooling costs.

Just enjoying this Georgia weather this weekend. At my parents house fishing and noticed the wildlife out here where they belong. They can become a nuisance though when they find their way inside your home. In that case give us a call.
