Do you own an older home on the Northern Beaches peninsula? We recently visited a home in Collaroy Plateau and you wouldn’t believe what we found in their ceiling!
Homes without ceiling insulation have a general build-up of dirt, soot, rodent droppings, bird nests. The dust and dirt can also be blown in under your eaves.
For many years, the ceiling was used to store old clothes and household items.
But cleaning the ceiling at a home in Collaroy NSW presented us a surprise!
The previous owner collected magazines and papers and created a wet and dry mix. Then the mixture was packed between the rafters in the ceiling cavity to act as insulation.
It was clear, the previous owner had been doing this for years!
Not only would placing the mixture of paper increase the chance of a ceiling fire if the home’s electrical wiring ever had a short. This practice also supplies rodents and small birds with a wonderful cosy home to live and breed. Plus, there’s a good chance it could cause mould and damp patches in your ceiling throughout your home.
