When you have old and crumbling insulation in your home, it can be tempting to remove the insulation yourself to save a few dollars. However, there are several reasons why you should never remove the insulation yourself. Here are the top three reasons to use a professional for insulation removal.
Health and Safety
Older insulation poses a health risk if it contains fiberglass. Breathing in fiberglass can lead to lung disorders such as lung cancer and asthma. In addition, crawling around a dimly lit attic can lead to falls or damage to ceilings and joists.
A professional insulation removal company has the knowledge, expertise, and equipment to properly dispose of old insulation to prevent contamination and health risks to others.
Removing old insulation from your attic is not only dangerous, but it’s also a lot of hard work. Using a professional is not only safer, but it’s also a lot less work and stress.
