When the call is made to DFW Home Insulation, removing attic insulation is the first step in our insulation replacement process. If you have lived in your home for a while or your home is older, your attic probably has old or dirty insulation. If so, then it’s time to get it looked at and replaced. Old attic insulation is typically not energy efficient and could lead to unnecessarily high energy bills, due to the increased inability to create an effective temperature barrier. Dirty attic insulation could be the result of rodents and birds, who find insulation a good nesting environment. Nesting contaminates the insulation, which can lead to an unhealthy home. Just one of these situations is reason enough to have the attic insulation in your Dallas home or office replaced. Call DFW Home Insulation and let us replace the insulation and maximize the safety and energy-efficiency of your home.
We have a special vacuum we use to remove blown in insulation that cuts down on dust and dirt keeping your home clean during our process. All of the dust and debris is suctioned up safely and efficiently and collected in large filter bags designed specifically for insulation material. Old insulation is properly removed and responsibly disposed.
Let’s begin with the obvious reason, doing attic insulation replacement yourself is not a safe option for most homeowners. If adequate protection is not used, then your health could be in jeopardy. Dust and fecal matter can be stirred up increasing the risk of contracting a disease. Older insulation may have dangerous materials such as asbestos and older fiberglass products, which if not recognized early can be very dangerous if the wrong equipment is used. Blown-in insulation replacement, which is most likely the case in Dallas homes and offices, can be higher than the joists in your ceiling, which makes it extremely difficult to walk steady resulting in a possible fall or accidental ceiling damage.
Some attic insulation is designed to last years, there are particular times when your replacement is the best option, for your Dallas home. Insulation can begin to settle after a year and may need to be replaced to keep it fluffy and insulating adequately. If your Dallas home was built in or before the 1970s, then insulation replacement is a must. The insulation is definitely not properly creating a barrier between your home and the outside environment and insulation manufacturers have greatly improved their products to improve energy efficiency and save money on energy bills. If you had a roof leak, then attic insulation is suggested. Wet insulation can promote mold growth due to the warm, humid atmosphere in an attic, causing hazardous air quality. Mold ridden insulation should be replaced immediately. The surest way to be sure if your insulation should be replaced is to call DFW Home Insulation for a free inspection. (214)775-0905
