QUESTION: DO I NEED TO REPLACE MY ATTIC INSULATION FOLLOWING A RODENT INFESTATION?
Answer: This is a very difficult question to answer without having seen the infestation and subsequent damage caused by the infestation first hand. There are many other companies in this industry that sell attic restoration services in Dallas to every house no matter what. The main claim that most of our competitors preach is that cellulose insulation is rodent proof or a rodent deterrent in some sort of way. This is scientifically proven to be false through numerous case studies published by nationally recognized institutions. We will dig into this in a separate FAQ a little further down the page.
We can tell you that we will not try to sell you, or otherwise aggressively suggest a full attic restoration unless the damages incurred during the infestation have compromised your home’s attic insulation, electrical wiring or ductwork systems. Attic restorations are also necessary when the attic insulation is heavily saturated with urine, feces and nesting sites. When the insulation becomes excessively saturated during the infestation, it is imperative to completely clean out, deodorize and disinfect the attic in order to eliminate all of the pheromones, scent trails and biological markers that attract new populations of animals back to your home. This significantly lessens, if not totally prevents, the animals from attempting to, or successfully chewing their way back into your home.
