Health Benefits of Removing Old Insulation
Did you know that removing old insulation in your home can provide health benefits?

Our homes are our safe refuge, and for this reason, we want them to be the cleanest place possible. Unfortunately, older traditional insulation that has been collecting debris allows air movement into your home which can lead to allergen and mold exposure without you knowing.
It is a well-known fact that insulation can be damaged by pests, which burrow in and leave behind excrement and debris. This creates an ideal environment for more than just one pest to thrive in and creates a mess in your attic! If you don't take action soon enough it could lead your family to become sick from the toxic air seal it can create around your home - so always have qualified professionals come out as soon as there has been reported infestation.
Recent Roof Leak?
Another common problem in Central Florida is leaky roofs with all of our rain and storms. If you have had a recent roof leak you also want to be sure to replace the insulation after repairing the area of the leak. Once insulation gets wet it can hold onto the moisture and allow black mold to grow, once again increasing the possibility of severely impacting your family’s health inside the home.
You may be living in an old, poorly insulated home that could pose health risks.
A study by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development has found almost half (46%) of homes built before 1980 do not meet current federal standards for air sealing because they were originally designed without conditioned walls or ceilings; this means you're breathing dirtier indoor air than what your family needs!
If you have an older home and haven’t replaced the insulation since the 80’s there is a possibility of asbestos being present and should be removed by a professional team.
Another thing to keep in mind is that cellulose and fiberglass will shift, settle, or sag over time. This means these materials are less effective as insulation because they cannot provide the same R-value (their thermal resistance) when compared with other types of insulation, the Insulate It team can help you decide if you need to remove and replace your insulation.
