Insulation Removal Reveals Mice, Rodents, and Spiders Oh My!

Thursday, February 19th, 2015 by Sam Wakefield


There is a serious problem going on in the panhandle of Texas. There are companies who are doing spray foam insulation in the Amarillo and surrounding areas who are not removing the existing insulation on the ceiling first. Don't let this happen to you!

Why Remove Insulation Properly

The first reason is that there is no way to accomplish the goal of making the attic completely sealed with old or bad insulation present. The insulation left makes it impossible to foam insulate down to the eave where there are vents.

The second and much more harmful reason is that now everything that has ever been in the attic is now air that you will be breathing inside the house. Any and all allergens, insects, mice droppings and urine, and a slew of other things can be in your attic. One very potentially harmful thing is rodent urine. Rodent urine can cause Hentavirus.

As stated on webmd,

  1. Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) is a lung infection caused by viruses found in the saliva, urine, and droppings of some rodents. The illness is rare but can be deadly. The first known outbreak of HPS in the United States occurred in 1993.

It is vital to have a qualified, trained company handle the insulation removal and reinsulation of your house
