As a homeowner, you may not think about the condition of your attic insulation very often and you may never even do into your attic. However, neglecting this vital component of your home can lead to a variety of problems, including increased energy bills, reduced indoor air quality, and even health hazards. If your attic insulation is old or contaminated with rodent feces and urine, it’s time to consider having it cleaned out and sanitized.
The primary purpose of attic insulation is to keep the cool energy in your home and the hot energy from your attic from entering your home. The less insulation you have, the faster your home will heat up in the summer.
Overtime, your attic insulation will get old, compressed, fill with pollen and sometimes rats, mice and other animals will live in your attic insulation. It is important to have clean attic insulation as your house breathes all this dirty air.
Another important aspect of attic insulation cleaning and sanitization is improved indoor air quality. Old or damaged insulation can trap allergens, dust, and other airborne particles, reducing the quality of your indoor air. Additionally, rodent infestations in your attic can lead to feces and urine contamination, which can pose serious health risks to you and your family. By cleaning and sanitizing your attic insulation, you can greatly improve your home’s indoor air quality and protect your health.
