Why do you need to remove your insulation?

Insulation damaged by rodents - has a dramatic impact on the air quality and health of your home. Removing insulation that is contaminated by rodent carcasses, droppings, feces, and urine left behind from rodents and replacing it with new insulation will not only increase your indoor air quality, it will also improve the energy efficiency of your home.
Mold or water damage on the insulation - reduces the efficiency of your insulation and may also have an impact on your indoor air quality. Removing insulation that has mold or water damage is important because it can cause structural issues with your home.
Old insulation - if insulation is over 20 years old it can increase your energy bills. 99% of the time old insulation is contaminated with rodent activity and dust/dirt that drastically reduces the effectiveness and R value of your insulation. By removing old insulation and adding new insulation you increase your indoor air quality and can reduce your energy bills.
