Why Remove Insulation?
When it comes to insulation, more is not always better. In fact, there are some cases where it is necessary to remove insulation.
One reason to remove insulation is to improve energy efficiency. When two thermal barriers are present in a home, it can create a problem called "thermal bridging." Thermal bridging occurs when heat or cold can easily pass through a material. This can happen when two different materials are joined together, or when there are gaps or cracks in the insulation.
In the case of spray foam insulation, it is important to remove any existing insulation from the attic floor before the spray foam is applied to the roof decking. This is because the spray foam creates a single, continuous thermal barrier that is more effective at preventing heat loss.
Another reason to remove insulation is to prevent moisture problems. When insulation becomes wet, it can create a breeding ground for mold and mildew. This can lead to health problems and damage to your property.
If your property has experienced a leak or flood, it is important to remove any wet insulation as soon as possible. You should also remove insulation that has been contaminated with animal droppings or other debris.
Finally, you may need to remove insulation if you are allergic to it. Some types of insulation, such as fiberglass, can trigger allergic reactions in some people. If you are concerned about allergies, talk to your doctor about getting tested for insulation allergies.
