Why You Should Remove Contaminated Insulation

Since your insulation is in your attic, it may be out of sight out of mind. There are many health risks caused by contamination. Protect yourself and your family by calling a contaminated insulation removal service like O’Reilly Brothers. You likely don't take time to explore your attic. You may not notice the attic insulation has been contaminated if you don't go up there often. But, if you hear scurrying or squeaking coming from inside your ceiling... there's a good chance of rodent infestation.  Rodents leave droppings, and that's one way they leave behind bacteria. Bacteria left from rodents can make you sick and cause breathing issues. Removing contaminated insulation is a great way to free up space inside your attic. Look into O’Reilly Brothers for insulation removal to get rid of unwanted houses guests.


Health Risks of Contaminated Insulation

If you choose to handle contaminated insulation yourself, you're putting yourself at risk for all kinds of disease. Exposure to asbestos may cause breathing issues like lung cancer or asbestosis. Rodents aren't the only creatures who may set up camp in your attic and hide inside the insulation. Insects and parasites are just as likely to live inside contaminated insulation. Some of the health risks of contaminated insulation include the following:

  • Rat-bite fever
  • Salmonella
  • Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome

These are diseases no one wants to mess with. If you remove contaminated insulation yourself, you're putting you and your family at risk for disease. That's why it's so important to let professionals handle contaminated insulation removal. Professionals have the right tools and education to know how to remove insulation.
