Insulation is critical for keeping your home cool in the hot Arkansas summer and warm in the frigid winter, but many contractors in the area overlook the fact that old insulation should be removed before any new materials are added.
Why Remove Old Insulation?
Over time, insulation has a tendency to settle, becoming thin and less effective as it absorbs moisture from the surrounding area. This moisture accumulation creates a mold-friendly environment that can drastically affect the quality of your indoor air. Additionally, attics are a prime location for insects and other animals to reside. As they create nests and go about their daily routine, the insulation gets torn up and riddled with droppings. As you can probably guess, thin, wet insulation that is conducive to mold and animal excrement is not going to be very effective.
