Make your attic yours again
Cellulose is a man-made material that normally comes from plant fibers, and it is most popular in its loose-fill and spray-on forms. Many experts favor cellulose insulation as being one of the most “green” options; it’s often made out of at least 75-85% post-consumer recycled materials, such as newspaper. Choosy homeowners like to pick cellulose as their insulation of choice out of the several types of insulation because of its versatility and eco-friendliness. It breaks down naturally, leaving a safer material behind than other types of insulation like fiberglass foam. It also tends to be just as long-lasting and energy-efficient as other options. If you’re looking at insulation removal and wondering what type of insulation you have, you should know that cellulose is common in newer homes and has a soft, brown appearance. Occasionally, consumers can confuse cellulose with asbestos, so it’s best to have experts look at your insulation first before touching or removing it yourself.
Removing Cellulose Insulation
Over a long enough time span, loose cellulose (its most popular form) will settle, becoming less effective. Wet, messy, and dirty insulation can also lead to health hazards and damage within the home. It’s a good idea to replace this insulation at that point. While it’s one of the safer materials that one can remove compared to other health-hazardous materials like fiberglass and asbestos, it’s still much easier and safer to have professionals complete such a task. It’s important to remember while removing cellulose insulation that the material is not chemical-free; it must be made fire-resistant and thus is usually combined with many different chemical additives. Without the proper masks and best practices, one can inhale these materials, which can cause irritation in the lungs and on the skin. Cellulose insulation that’s very old can have dangerous mold growing in it, which can be toxic. There are also more obvious, cosmetic issues, like the fact that if one doesn’t go about insulation removal the right way, it can spew insulation all over the house.
