Insulation Removal and Replacement
Attic Insulation Installation in Fort Worth
When rodents, raccoons, bats, or other animals make their home in your attic, they cause quite a lot of damage. Even after the animal is removed, you’re likely left with damage to your insulation. Rodents will make tunnels in your insulation as it is nice and cozy for them. Along the way, they will leave their droppings, soiling the insulation. Soiled insulation is not only ineffective, but it is also dangerous. Animal dropping carry diseases.

What's the Best Way to Restore an Attic?
- The first step to restoring an attic is making sure that all the animals have been removed.
- Next is the clean-up—getting rid of the animal carcasses and cleaning up the animal feces is integral before replacing insulation.
- Removing insects is next. Live and dead animals both will draw in secondary pests like fleas and ticks, so it's important to make sure they're removed from your attic.
- Deodorizing and sanitizing is a vital step in returning your attic to a healthy state for your family. The animal's feces and carcass will have left a horrible odor that is likely lingering in your attic.
- Finally, after extensive attic preparation, it'll be time to place the insulation.
