Insulation removal

Reasons for insulation removal

In addition to helping to keep your home or building warmer and cooler in the winter, insulation also reduces noise pollution, improves indoor air quality, and protects your home or building from fires by slowing down the transfer of heat. It also helps to keep your home or building safe and secure.

However, over time, insulation can become compromised and insulation removal and replacement are necessary in order to ensure that the building or home continues to operate properly after it has been compromised over time.

The moulding process

As mould can be both unsightly and potentially harmful to one’s health, it’s important to have it removed and replaced as soon as possible. If you notice any signs of mould growth in the insulation, it’s important to replace it as soon as possible.

A variety of allergens are responsible for allergies

Dust mites, pests, and other allergens can accumulate in insulation over time. This can exacerbate respiratory problems, including asthma and allergy symptoms. As a result, insulation removal services may be required in order to eliminate these issues.

Odours that are irritating and unpleasant

In some cases, unpleasant odors may be indicative of a larger problem or that insulation needs to be removed. In some cases, insulation can become contaminated with a variety of things, such as mold, rodent droppings, or urine, which can create unpleasant odors.

Fire damage

Insulation can become scorched or otherwise damaged in a fire. In order to ensure that your home or building remains safe after a fire, it is important to have this insulation removed and replaced.

Rodent contaminants

There are a variety of problems that rats can cause, such as droppings or urine, which are not only able to create unpleasant odors but can also pose health risks to humans.

Insulation Removal Process

Insulation removal is anything but easy. At Critter Stop, we deal with dead animal removal, feisty wild animals, and everything in between, but the toughest work we do is insulation removal. While the work is tough, the biggest reason to call a DFW insulation professional is to ensure the dirty and/ or contaminated insulation is handled and removed properly. The process will most likely go like this:

➢   Insulation company’s team member will visit your property to assess the condition of your attic insulation. They will identify problems areas in your attic and suggest the best possible solutions.

➢   If the insulation is severely contaminated or there are signs of water and thus possible mildew, they will likely recommend immediate insulation removal. Once the removal and reinstallation date is scheduled, their team will arrive and safely remove the old insulation.

➢   If you contract an animal removal company such as Critter Stop, we will sanitize the attic once we have it down to the bare decking, killing all the germs and micro-bacteria that might be carrying diseases as well as all of the pheromones, biological markers, and urine markers that would just retract other rodents for years to come.

➢   Once the attic is clear, the insulation company should go through it again with a fine-toothed comb, sealing all the cracks, crevices, and gaps with spray foam to ensure your attic is air-tight.

➢   Additionally, at least at Critter Stop, we will cover all your can lights with a flame retardant material so the insulation is not simply leaning up against the warm metal can light and its wiring, presenting a fire hazard.

➢   After all of the above has been completed, your attic is ready for insulation installation. Unless you are installing spray foam or batt insulation, insulation installation should not take more than one full day to complete.


If you leave your insulation dirty and contaminated for along period of time, it can present a serious health risk to you and your family. To ensure your house remains protected, your old insulation should be removed and replaced as soon as possible.
