Newer homes might even have fiberglass insulation below standard and may need upgrading. Replace old insulation with energy efficient insulation and significantly lower heating and cooling bills.
The lack of outward or obvious warning signs of damage attic insulation should be checked periodically for signs such as: animal infestation, water damage, or mold and mildew. Call the professionals at the first sign of mold or mildew, or water or animal related damage. You should consult a home insulation replacement and repair team promptly.
Do not attempt to remove or repair home or attic insulation by yourself. It’s very risky to try doing this on your own, you don’t want to spread contaminants throughout your home.
