If you live in an area that’s close to fires in California, there’s a likelihood that your home has some level of smoke damage. Ash enters into attics through vents or gable fans. When the ash lands on insulation, it permeates the material, making it stink like smoke.
The ash and smoke in your attic is also detrimental to the air quality in your home. Ash from fires can carry chemicals and airborne contaminants that are harmful to breathe. The only way to remove ash or bad smells from insulation is to completely clean the attic of ash and replace the insulation.
