Most homes have insulation in the walls and attic to help protect against the cold in winter and increase energy efficiency. Unfortunately, many kinds of pests enjoy making themselves at home in your insulation, especially in older homes. In addition to having the pests in your home, the insulation acts as a sponge, absorbing urine, and bacteria from feces, and collecting parasites over the years. Once your insulation is contaminated, it will stay that way unless replaced. If not replaced, the odor from the droppings and other contaminants will not only bother you and your family, but can also attract more pests into your home.
At times, insulation may also need to be replaced due to trapped moisture or other circumstances out of your immediate control. Trapped moisture can lead to mold and mildew, which in addition to smelling bad, is unhealthy to live with. If you’re unsure how long it’s been since your insulation was installed, or you have been noticing unpleasant odors, we recommend having an inspection done.
