Common Air Quality Issues That Attic Insulation Can Prevent

  • Unwanted Pests: Iowa homeowners are well aware of how pests such as mice, rats, birds, bats, and insects can take up home in your attic. Pest laying their waste into your insulation can be sucked into your breathing through the air or in your ductwork.

  • Indoor Pollutants: The most common sources of indoor pollutants can come from paints, household cleaners, and office and cleaning supplies. These unwanted materials can be brought into your indoor air as insulation deteriorates and allows more dust particles into your air.

  • Moisture Damage: Water is a huge risk for insulation because any moisture makes your insulation ineffective. Water will instantly reduce the heat-resisting qualities of insulation and can even accelerate the mold growth process. Common health-related symptoms you can experience may be a runny nose, coughing, nausea, headaches, restlessness, dry skin, and so much more.
