Removing Attic Insulation
Removing attic insulation satisfies two objectives at the same time: getting rid of material that is underperforming AND upgrading the energy efficiency of the attic and roof. While the reason for removing insulation may vary from home to home, the benefits are universal. You may have had roof damage – there may be too much condensation – or there may be some residual asbestos – whatever the reason professional removal ensures a clean and safe process with great results.
If you have water damage in the attic, your insulation is probably affected. Waterlogged materials definitely need removal, if only to prevent mold growth. Homeowners who need to replace attic insulation in Toronto would be wise to have the work done professionally right from the start.
It’s not uncommon for rodents to build a “home” inside your attic insulation. If the insulation gets contaminated, removal is necessary (and therefore re-installation). If a situation like this remains unattended, there could be health risks to home occupants. The removal should be professional.
High levels of moisture in the attic can be a breeding ground for mold. In more serious situations, this will require professional remediation and installation of new insulation material. If mold is discovered in the attic, it can’t be left unattended (because of health risks) and must be removed.
If asbestos deposits are suspected in the attic, there could be potential for health risks. In general, if asbestos is left untouched, there is no reason for concern. However, homeowners considering the removal of attic insulation in Toronto should seek professional remediation with asbestos.
