Soiled Attic Insulation Replacement

Attic Insulation Replacement is a complex process that is designed to remove contaminated harmful insulation and replace it with state of the art blown in cellulose. Insulation that has been damaged by animal activity is less energy efficient, and contains many different types of bacteria, parasites, and fungus. These contaminants can include histoplasmosis, raccoon roundworm, and many other dangerous bacteria. Removing this hazardous material is a complicated process that should only be undertaken by trained professionals. Do-it-yourself removal can expose homeowners to fungus that can be easily aerosolized and inhaled by unprepared individuals. At ABC Wildlife we highly recommend hiring insulation replacement professionals trained both in hazardous waste removal and proper installation techniques. At ABC Wildlife we specialize in safely removing hazardous insulation and include a flea, tick and mite treatment, in addition to odor treatment as part of our standard service. This is an often overlooked part of the process that is necessary for proper service as all wildlife contain these parasites.

Our Process

Attic Insulation InstallationOur attic insulation replacement process begins with a comprehensive attic inspection. This inspection will identify areas in your attic that have been contaminated by animal activity. After our inspection is complete you can expect a professional proposal from our expert staff that outlines the work to be done, the price for the service, and our standard guarantee. This proposal can be mailed or e-mailed at your preference. After the proposal has been delivered expect a phone call from your individual wildlife and insulation specialist. After you confirm the work we will call you within two business days with your appointment date. On your appointment date our construction foreman will call you with the estimated arrival time. All work will be carried out in a professional manner and all contaminated material will be removed from your attic using proven techniques so that no contamination of living spaces occurs. In almost all cases this work will be complete within a two day period.

What They Say About ABC Humane Wildlife

I arranged for them to install wire screening on 2 sides of a concrete stoop to prevent animals from digging under my porch. (I have used this company in the past to remove animals from other parts of my property. They suggested this proactive work.) They called to remind me several days before their appointment. They came as promised. They did a great job of preserving landscaping gravel on the side before they dug. After digging down approximately 18 inches, they installed wire mesh screening down the 2 sides of the stoop. They then covered the area with the dirt and final layer of landscaping stones. You couldn’t even tell the area had been excavated when they were done!

We had bees crawling under exterior siding through a gap between siding and brick wall and wanted them eliminated. Phil the technician from ABC arrived at the scheduled time. He observed the bees and identified them as yellow jackets. Phil said he could eradicate them with a powder treatment and the bee activity would die down in a couple of days and we would be finished with the problem. Phil said if we still noticed bee activity after 7 days to call ABC and they would come back to re-treat the nest at no charge. It is just 3 days since Phil treated the nest and we have observed zero bee activity. We are very happy with the service and the remedy to our problem.

One by one, they removed a family of nine flying squirrels from our attic. The attic was completely cleaned and sanitized, and new insulation as blown in. All went well. It was easy to make appointments with ABC Humane Wildlife Control, and they were all very profession and prompt with their service. We dealt with many on their staff while trying to catch all the squirrels, and each of the representatives were friendly and helpful. We had some issues with the condition of some of the traps, but that was eventually resolved. They are a very helpful organization and the staff is very knowledgeable.
