How To Remove and Replace Insulation in a Lexington Attic

The first thing you have to do, when you want to remove and replace the insulation in your Lexington attic, is to clean your attic. The best way to eliminate these issues is to hire an expert to do the job for you. House insulation is often made from fiberglass and this material can be embed in your skin. If you come to a contact with it your skin will itch like crazy.

How to remove the old insulation
Removing an old and dirty insulation is a process that takes a lot of hours. Firstly you have to cover your belongings because of the dust that has accumulated in your insulation over the years. Having the right tools is necessary. Finding them and buying them will require some kind of a research because the old insulation is rarely removed by hands or tools that you can find in a household. You will most likely have to buy a special vacuum to remove the old insulation, even with it; it will take you about 15 hours per 1000 square feet long Kentucky attic.

Applying new foam insulation
When you cleaned your Lexington attic from the old insulation you should seal it off so your treated air doesn't escape through the roof. You should apply foam insulation because
• It doesn't need upkeep
• It doesn't retain moisture
• It easily creates an air seal
Spray foam insulation will cause your Kentucky attic to seal it off and it won't let your treated air that you're paying for to escape.

Outsource the renovation to the experts
There are several reasons that it's best to hire a company than to do it yourself. You won't have the expertise needed for this kind of job. You probably won't have the adequate protection. If you had rodents or other types of Kentucky wildlife present in your old insulation, inhaling their feces may cause you a disease that can be lethal. Avoid the risk of contamination and allow the experts do their job. In the end you're going to save a lot of time and even money.
