The Reason Your Roof Always Smells Bad

At Insulation Guru Brisbane, we’re committed to not only improving your home’s insulation but also enhancing the overall health and comfort of your living environment. A common, yet often overlooked issue that many homeowners face is an unpleasant odour emanating from their roof space. Our latest video, “The Reason Your Roof Always Smells Bad,” dives into the root causes of these persistent smells and what can be done to resolve them.

The source of these odours can be traced back to unwanted guests in your roof space, including rats, mice, possums, cockroaches, lizards, and geckos. These pests are not just a nuisance; they contribute to the problem by defecating throughout the attic. Over time, their droppings begin to decompose, breaking down into smaller particles that can become airborne, especially when disturbed by wind or air pressure changes in the roof cavity.

These particles find their way into the lowest points of the roof, often around light fittings, fan fixtures, and particularly downlights. Downlights create an ideal entry point due to their circular design and the fact that they are not always airtight. When there is a shift in air pressure or a breeze moves through the roof, these particles can be pushed out around the edges of these fixtures, entering your home and affecting the air quality.

Our video highlights this issue, emphasising the importance of addressing both pest control and insulation integrity to prevent such occurrences. It’s not just about removing the pests, but also sealing potential entry points and ensuring that any gaps or spaces around fixtures are properly insulated and airtight. This dual approach is critical to solving the problem of bad odours and ensuring that the air in your home remains clean and healthy.
