It is not uncommon for insulation to become damaged over time. As houses age and deteriorate, for instance, it becomes easier for rodents or insects to infest the home. As roofs weaken and spring leaks, the insulation in your attic may become damaged. When a basement or crawl space floods, the insulation in the walls may become saturated, reducing its efficiency and leaving you open to mold growth.
Residents and business owners in the Greater Cincinnati area have a solution in Valley Insulation LLC. For over 40 years we have not only been providing insulation solutions for a variety of homeowners and businesses, reducing both their energy costs and the noise pollution they may receive in their home, but we will also happily remove any damaged insulation you may have.
Below we’ll discuss some of the most common sources of damage we see so that you will know when to give us a call.
Rodents and Insects
Rodents and insects are notorious for finding entry points to your home. Signs that you may have an infestation are the obvious sightings of these critters on the countertops, lurking in cabinets, or feasting in the pantry. If you hear scratching in the walls or rustling at night, you may want to have your home inspected for an insect or rodent infestation. Once you’ve taken care of the pests, you will want to assess your insulation also.
Insulation is an important measure for preventing the spread of fires in your home. These can commonly begin in the garage where combustible chemicals are typically stored. If you’ve experienced a fire in the home, perhaps even an electrical fire in the walls, you will want to have your insulation replaced so that you’ll be better protected from any future fires. We use Nu-Wool cellulose insulation, which is one of the only construction materials that are treated for fire resistance. In fact, they carry a Class A fire rating and are UL Classified. This insulation is made to stop or slow the spread of fire and last for the life of your home.
Floods and Water Damage
Once insulation becomes soaked from flooding or leaks in the roof, it easily becomes a site for mold and mildew growth. If you’ve sprung a leak during a rainy season or your crawl space has become flooded, give the experts at Valley Insulation LLC a call and we’ll be happy to inspect your insulation and determine if it should be replaced.
