Can Blown-In Insulation Help With Allergies?
Though many assume their allergies are seasonal due to outdoor pollen, they may actually be caused by allergens inside your home. Dust mites, pet dander, mold, and mildew can all live inside your house, causing allergy symptoms. When your insulation becomes too old or damaged it can intensify the experience of indoor allergies for people inside your home. To ensure your home is allergy-free, it's best to get blown in insulation in Mississauga installed by professionals. EcoStar is highly experienced in effectively removing and installing attic, roof, and basement blown in insulation in Toronto.
Read on to learn more about how new blown in insulation can help with allergies.
Blown In Insulation & Allergies
When your home is surrounded by old insulation, it can be easy for dirt, dust, and pests to accumulate. It's common to nudge off these symptoms as they can feel like typical seasonal allergies, although they can cause long-term issues. Good quality insulation provides comprehensive benefits from improved air quality to less dust in your vents. When your insulation is damaged, it is imperative to have professionals adequately remove and install new blown in insulation in Toronto. Regardless if your insulation is damaged, old, over-insulated, or contaminated, EcoStar can efficiently remove and install blown in insulation in Mississauga for those looking to say goodbye to indoor allergies.
Animals & Critters
With old and ineffective insulation, cracks and crevices can permit animals and critters to enter your home. Animals are notorious for making their nests in attics, which continuously ruins the insulation. When creatures enter your home, they can contaminate it with their urine and droppings, which imposes a significant health risk. This degrades the insulation and air with harmful pollutants and reduces the insulation's efficiency. In some cases, these animals may bring insects into the attic. Bed bugs, ticks, and fleas can make their way into your home and lay eggs inside insulation. Blown in insulation can help prevent these allergy-causing issues. With adequate insulation installed, holes will be sealed so that nothing can get into your attic.
Dust & Dirt
If you're someone who already experiences outdoor allergies, the last thing you want is to come home to a place that provides you with no relief. Poor insulation triggers seasonal-like allergies from sources such as mold, mildew, dust mites, or pests. Dust and dirt particles can circulate into the air in your home, causing allergy symptoms like sneezing, coughing, worsened allergies, or difficulty breathing. If you're tired of allergies caused by your old or damaged insulation, it's time for an upgrade. The technicians at EcoStar are certified and have years of experience installing insulation. Our blown in insulation offers an allergy-free home with satisfactory R-Values and thermal insulation.
Mold & Mildew
Roof leaks can cause mold and mildew to grow in no time, which ultimately leads to allergy-like symptoms and respiratory issues. This is because water leaks and moisture enters your attic and contaminates insulation materials, inviting mold and other fungi to grow throughout your insulation. Inhaling mold spores can cause respiratory problems, headaches, difficulty concentrating, and dizziness, so hiring a team of professionals to install blown in insulation is crucial.
When you choose EcoStar Insulation for a blown-in insulation installation in your home, you can be assured that all of our cellulose insulation materials are treated to resist mold, stopping the spread of the toxic fungus.
