One of the best advantages of blown attic insulation over batt is that the blown style covers everything; while there can be open areas in the batt type.

Almost all Insulation Cost in Italy are tested and rated as fireproof. If for some strange reason you find one that is not, stay away from that product.

The Three Important Types of Attic Insulation

House attic mold is one of the most "popular" items in my property inspection reports. And now is time for an explanation of how to kill mold and / or how to clean mold in the attic. But before I do that, let me give you a little advice, something to consider before you sign a few (if you're lucky) thousand dollars contract agreement with a mold remediation company.

Attic mold remediation TIP - an alternative (to consider):

Let us assume that you are in the middle of a real-estate transaction, and the home inspector just revealed to you, that your entire house attic is contaminated with mold.

If you have a brand new roof, you can only blame yourself or try to blame the roofing contractor for not checking the attic before replacing the roof (he will laugh at you unless you've actually asked the guy to check the attic before the roof replacement). If you have an older roof, the importance of this advice is even greater.

Call at least 2-3 mold remediation companies for an estimate - specify to the representatives, that you not only want to have the mold removed, but also attic ventilation system corrected / installed if necessary / ask if the attic insulation requires replacement.

With the numbers from the mold remediation contractors, call 2-3 roofing contractors, and ask them for a quote on the roof replacement cost including decking boards / plywood (ask the roofer to check the attic area), attic ventilation improvement, and insulation if necessary.

Be cautious if they only suggest humidistat controlled power vent installation - without properly functioning soffit vents or any type of vents along the lower portion of the roof this might not be an adequate solution.

If the attic insulation replacement is not required (it most cases it will not be possible to tell without laboratory testing), make sure it's sealed with plastic foil before the roof and its decking replacement. Fold the foil sealing its contents after the contaminated decking has been removed, and dispose of as a regular waste (EPA recommendation).

I personally wouldn't even attempt to do it myself, so my suggestion is:

Use a professional mold remediation company:

  • check their background and check it manually by calling their clients
  • ask for clients who had their attic mold remediated approximately 1 year ago - it usually takes a winter for the mold to start growing again if the job wasn't fully completed
  • Insist on removing the mold completely instead of encapsulating it (Media Blasting methods give the best results).
  • Encapsulation is simply a process of covering the mold contaminated surface with paint (paint like product) that contains (or at least some of them do) mold killing chemicals

If your attic mold is properly removed and all of the issues responsible for its growth corrected, which is even more important than mold removing, it will not re-grow / no need for encapsulating.

  • Hire a different contractor for mold testing and mold remediation to eliminate conflict of interest.
  • Make sure that you perform an independent clearance test after the mold remediation process completion.
  • Clearance test is to determine if there are any mold spores remaining in the previously contaminated area
Extremely important - examine the attic (or have somebody do it for you) after the mold cleaning procedure is finished.

All wood (framing and decking) surfaces should be perfectly clean (like brand new), unless there was some rotting that resulted from leaking roof or extremely humid conditions in the attic - those sections of wood should be either replaced or reinforced from underneath. You don't want anyone to fall through the roof while servicing it or just inspecting.

Spray On Insulation

About Reflective Foil Insulation

What is Spray Foam Insulation?:

It's a form of insulation, which is sprayed over an area you wish to insulate, instead of the conventional way of placing some sort of insulation in the wall cavity. When it is sprayed it rapidly expands and fills in every single void it can, creating an almost perfectly sealed space.

What are the advantages of using Spray Foam Insulation?:

By expanding and filling ever crack and void it provides complete sealing, preventing air from leaking, which is still in effect with other insulations. It can be placed in any area without having to remove existing tubing, electrical wires or pipes of any kind. It is water repellent and allows moisture to leave from the walls. Mold cannot grow on it. It also prevents the development of mold, which is due to humid air. It is an effective way of reducing outside noises. Also, Spray Foam Insulation has a low flammability. It can be used as an effective way of insulating your boat. It can be used in small areas.

Is it environmentally friendly?:

Many organizations have rated spray foam insulation as one of the greenest methods of insulation with the most attention going to icynene. Most spray foam insulations do not contain HCFC's, CFC's or formaldehyde. They are relatively safe for individuals with respiratory problems such as asthma. So the answer to the question is yes it is environmentally friendly.
