Contaminated attic insulation removal and replacement is something that should only be done by a professional. There are dangers associated with removing contaminated insulation from a cramped attic or crawl space.

Removing Animal Droppings From Your Insulation in Austin, TXinsulation replacement Animal droppings in your insulation is one of the most common calls we receive in Austin, TX. Any time an animal gets in under your home or in your attic, it is because it is looking for a secure, cozy area to have young. Insulation strips and blown-in insulation makes a great nesting material for animals. Large and small animals will utilize insulation to create a suitable nesting location and will tear away chunks of insulation and drag it into a concealed area of the attic or crawlspace.
Animal feces in your insulation is a hazard, as droppings inside an attic or crawlspace do not break down with limited ventilation. If droppings were outside they can break down naturally exposed to the elements. Droppings inside can thrive with bacteria, pathogens, and other diseases, and can really be a great concern when animals are present in the attic or crawlspace disturbing the droppings. Airborne particulates from disturbed animal droppings will contaminate insulation that may otherwise look ok. This is why it is crucial to have a wildlife specialist inspect your attic and crawlspace insulation.
Remove animal droppings from your attic insulation to reduce airborne particles. Most insulation companies will remove droppings and insulation together in insulation hoses, creating a hazardous environment that can cause fecal spores to become airborne. That is why professional help for dropping removal from insulation should only be performed by a specialist.
Removing Animal Nests and Bird Nests From Insulationanimal Nest When wildlife invades your attic or crawlspace, it is usually to create a suitable nesting location to have young. Animals from mice and birds, to even opossums, raccoons, and skunks will build nests large enough to create an unsafe hazardous environment in your attic and crawlspace. Nests can harbor animal droppings, pathogens, and parasites in almost all cases.
Professional help is recommended when removing nesting materials from insulation. Contact us for an insulation specialist for nesting removal from your attic or crawlspace.
Over 90% of homes in America lack adequate insulation, and now is the perfect time to add or reinstall insulation, as there are several federal, state, and local incentives for reinstalling attic and crawlspace insulation. Add comfort to your home or business year-round and save money by using our insulation services.
Insulation That Repels Animals and RodentsMany requests are made for information on rodent or animal-repelling insulation. Unfortunately, there is nothing that exists of this nature. Boric Acid insulation is treated with an insecticide for cockroaches, termites, fleas, silverfish, and many other insects, although studies are not clearly conclusive of its effectiveness. However, it is not a rodent or animal deterrent. We have seen this marketed for keeping raccoons away, but studies have been done and can be found online, that boric acid insulation does not keep animals away. For professional insulation help, contact the experts at Centex.
Remember! Only a trained professional wearing protective gear should be allowed to access the contaminated area.
Attic Inspection PhotosAs an added benefit to our customers, we offer complimentary attic inspection photos to show you what conditions look like inside of your attic. Before we perform services and after our work we will provide you with detailed photos of the condition of your home attic or crawl space. Austin Attic RestorationWhen raccoons, bats, birds, squirrels, or other animals gain access to your attic they can cause a massive amount of damage to your insulation and ceiling. They walk on top of the insulation compressing it down and decreasing your R-Value which will increase your heating and cooling cost. Not only that but more importantly when these animals defecate and urinate in your attic space it puts you at risk many animal-related diseases including but not limited to Histoplasmosis, Leptospirosis, Raccoon Round Worm, Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis, and Salmonellosis.
At Centex we provide a full attic restoration insulation removal and insulation install service. Regardless of the type of attic insulation that you have we can remove the insulation along with all the animal droppings. For this process we use large insulation removal vacuums. The insulation is sucked out of the attic through large hoses which transfer the insulation into large collection bags. After your attic insulation is removed we will deodorize and disinfect the attic using an atomizer. This will help to eliminate the harmful microorganisms and bacteria that cause disease. Finally we blow in new insulation to bring the levels in your attic back to original.
Some types of insulation such as fiberglass bat or other rolled insulation must be removed by hand. In this case, we bag all the insulation with heavy-duty 3mm vinyl bags and tie them tightly to keep the insulation and droppings contained in the bags and out of the living space of the home. We dispose of these hazardous materials according to environmental standards.

Damage caused to your home due to wild animals may be covered by your homeowners insurance policy. Damage caused to your business or church due to wild animals may be covered by your commercial insurance policy. Over the years here at Cenetx, LLC our wildlife control team has perfected the task of working with insurance companies to get our customers the insurance coverage they pay for and deserve.
Many insurance companies have a clause in their policies stating “We do not insure for loss caused by vermin, rodents, domestic animals, or insects.” Of course raccoons, bats, and skunks are not birds, vermin, rodents, insects, and that is how our customers are able to get coverage for loss when dealing with these specific wildlife control issues. Raccoons are mammals in the order of procyonid and are not birds, rodents, vermin, or insects. Bats are also mammals in the order of chiroptera and are not rodents, vermin, domestic animals, or insects. Skunks are in the order of musteloidea and are not rodents, vermin, domestic animals, or insects.
Squirrels, mice, rats, groundhogs, chipmunks, rabbits, capybara, nutria, muskrats, flying squirrels, and beavers are members of the rodentia family and do fall within that rodent category. However, all insurance policies are different and you may still have coverage in that instance when dealing with wildlife control issues involving those animals.
If you do have coverage for a loss due to animal damage, your insurance company may only insure you for loss caused by the animals, such as a hole chewed in the roof, damage to attic insulation, damage to crawl space insulation, damage to wooden, vinyl, or aluminum siding, damage to gutters, damage to soffits, etc. They may not insure you for the actual cost of the wildlife control service, such as trapping the raccoons from the attic, or trapping the skunks living in the crawl space. The removal cost of the animals is usually minimal compared to the cost of damage repair.
Some insurance companies may have never dealt with a wildlife control animal claim and may automatically assume that they do not provide coverage without sighting the policy. It’s always good to call the corporate office rather than your agent to see if you have coverage regarding wild animal damage. If you find out that you do not have coverage, your insurance company must send you a letter of denial sighting specifically within the policy where it says that you do not have coverage. It is very important to make sure that you have coverage before filing a claim with your insurance company.
You must always determine how the damage was originally created. For instance, if a tree fell and put a hole in your roof, squirrels took up residence and caused damage, you may be covered due to weather damage. It is very important that you contact your insurance company as soon as you are aware that you have experienced loss. The goal is to stop damage before any more occurs. That’s why it’s so important to call your insurance company and Centex, LLC so that we remove the animals and stop any more damage from occurring.
We provide a full nuisance wildlife control and damage control service. We can remove the animals and restore the damaged areas back to their original state. We have worked with most insurance companies and are familiar with how they operate and what coverage they provide. If you need assistance in working with your insurance, please contact us today.
