Wildlife Solutions’ insulation replacement service
It may seem like a lot of money spent, but you will end up saving tons in the long run. New insulation provides better heating and cooling efficiency for your home, saving you thousands of dollars in the following years on energy bills. If you think your insulation is still okay but might be contaminated from wildlife, it might be smart to get it replaced, as any contamination could be easily tracked down into your living areas, harming you and your family.
What do animals do to insulation?
It is a widely known fact that nuisance animals that get into your home often love to stay in the attic. There are many reasons they prefer to live there, including warmth for the winter months, a safe place to raise their young, and they stay far enough away from homeowners in the secluded corner of an attic. Nothing is warmer than insulation from attics and crawl spaces, and this is the main reason insulation gets destroyed to become nest-building material. There are a variety of ways in which your insulation can be damaged by various pests. The insulation gets smashed down by larger animals such as opossums, raccoons, and squirrels. Rodents such as rats and mice prefer to take the insulation and tear it to bits and build their warm nests for their young. Every single one of these animals, plus birds and bats urinates and leaves feces all over the insulation as well. The R-value of your insulation gets reduced dramatically every time an animal does one of these things. Put simply, the R-value is how well your insulation can resist heat flowing through it from your home or from the outside. When these animals ruin your insulation’s R-value, it means that your home is becoming less energy efficient, meaning that you will always be spending more to keep your house cool or warm.
As if the loss of energy efficiency was not enough, there are also some serious problems that come with animals defecating on your insulation. Depending on what pests were in your attic, there are some terrible and potentially deadly diseases possibly sitting in the feces and dried urine in the insulation of your attic. Elite Wildlife Solutions strongly recommends that new insulation should be installed and old should be disposed of due to the risk of yourself and your family being exposed to diseases. While many people never really even go into their attic, even doing so once or twice could be a serious problem. If you got some disease on your clothing, you could track it back down to your living areas where it could easily be transmitted to your family.
