Unless you frequently inspect your attic, you could be in for a rude awakening. This is largely in part due to the many issues that lurk out of sight and out of mind. In all actuality, periodic monitoring of the attic space is important to the health and well-being of your home. Otherwise, you could face the need for contaminated insulation removal and replacement.

While it is best to avoid contaminated insulation, Complete Detail understands that some factors are out of your control. This is why we offer comprehensive contaminated insulation removal and replacement services.

Causes of Contaminated Insulation

Insulation Removal & Replacement

Contamination of your insulation can arise from a variety of sources. Each poses unique challenges and considerations that must be taken into account when performing insulation removal services. The most common causes of contaminated insulation are:


Chances are high that if your home was built before the 1990s, the building materials, including the insulation, are contaminated with insulation. If the asbestos is disturbed, harmful microscopic fibers are released into the air. Exposure to the fibers causes serious health issues including inflammation of the lungs and mesothelioma.


Mice, rats, squirrels, snakes, raccoons, bats, and numerous other pests can create issues that result in expensive repairs for you. Between chewing up electrical wiring to leaving behind a build up of droppings, pests contaminate insulation, leaving the attic vulnerable. With the ability to leave up to 75 droppings per day and over 30 diseases associated with rodents, removing contaminated insulation and addressing the pest problem is crucial.


It is not uncommon to find mold in insulation. Due to your attic’s close proximity to the roof and the possibility for leaks, water damage often results in wet insulation that soon sprouts mold spores. Left untreated, mold poses the possibility of severe health concerns and weakened structures.
