Bend Oregon Insulation Removal
Attic insulation removal can be a messy and time consuming job. However, Bend Oregon homeowners are frequently faced with this challenge for any number of reasons. Rodent infestations or water damage often require insulation be removed so that damage can be contained and repaired. Wet insulation can breed mold, while rodents spread disease and can cause structural problems. If mold or rodent problems have persisted for a while, precautions need to be taken so that contaminants do not become airborne and spread throughout the house when the insulation is disturbed.
When it comes to safe attic insulation removal, preparation is key. The first step is to make sure that the insulation does not contain any traces of asbestos. According to the U.S. Consumer Protection Agency, this is very important if your home contains insulation manufactured between 1930 and 1950. Do not try to remove any insulation until your are absolutely sure. You can purchase a testing kit from a home improvement store or contact an inspector who can take samples of the insulation and send them to a lab for testing. If asbestos is present, you will have to hire professional to remove the insulation and ensure it is disposed of in a proper manner.
