Insulation Services To Improve Your Sacramento Home
Many things go into making your home a safe and healthy place to live, but many of those things tend to be out of sight, and therefore out of mind. One of those things is insulation. Every house needs good insulation to keep it cool in summer and warm in winter; however, many people don’t realize how many other issues can arise from a poorly insulated house or one with damaged insulation.
In addition to being less energy-efficient and costing you extra money in energy bills, insulation that is damaged or not installed right can grow mold, let in noise from outside, and even be a fire hazard. In order to make your house as energy-efficient, healthy, and happy as possible, it may be time to evaluate your insulation needs. Defender Termite & Pest Management provides Sacramento homes with insulation services to improve your house.
Our Insulation Service Process
Our insulation service is thorough and designed to provide 100% satisfaction. The process includes insulation removal, attic cleaning and decontamination, and new insulation installation.
The process begins with an inspection of your attic to assess your needs. We’ll then provide you with a detailed estimate. Once you approve the plan, we’ll begin the work.
Your family’s health and safety, and the safety of your belongings, is always in the forefront of our minds. That’s why we cover the floor and walls leading to your attic entry with protective plastic sheeting and move the contents of your attic to a secure location to ensure that they are not damaged before we remove the insulation.
We have two processes for insulation removal, depending on what type of insulation is currently in your attic.
- Batting (Roll) Insulation: This insulation must be rolled up and removed by hand. We will place the rolls in specialized insulation removal bags that we will then remove from the attic, transport off-site, and dispose of properly. Once we remove all the insulation, we will vacuum out the entire area to remove any remaining loose insulation, rodent droppings, and other debris between each joist.
- Blown-In Insulation: This insulation, which includes fiberglass, cellulose, and Rockwool, can be vacuumed up. We will feed an extended six-inch hose into your attic, then vacuum it out along with rodent droppings and other debris. All insulation and other waste are pumped into large insulation removal bags using specialized machinery that remains outside your house.
Clean & Decontamination
Once we remove the insulation and thoroughly vacuum the area, we will conduct a detailed inspection to identify entry points that rodents might use to gain access to your house. We will seal up these entry points and completely clean and sanitize the area. We also offer tips to homeowners to help them avoid conditions that can attract rodents.
Since the goal of replacing old insulation in your house is to provide you with a cleaner, healthier, more energy-efficient home, we must use materials that can accomplish that goal. We will replace your old insulation with an eco-friendly insulating material that will improve performance, lead to energy savings, create a more comfortable, energy-efficient home, and provide you with excellent health benefits.
Your Home, But Better
There are many reasons to consider replacing your insulation. Perhaps you’ve had a rodent infestation that has caused damage. Maybe you’ve noticed your house becoming more drafty. Or, maybe a leaky pipe has led to mold or mildew. Perhaps you’ve never thought about it before, and you don’t know if your insulation is good or not. Whatever the reason, it’s never a bad time to consider new insulation. Defender Termite & Pest Management can evaluate your current insulation situation, recommend a course of action, then perform the removal, cleaning, and installation process to improve your home.
