Fixing Smooshed Insulation

Here’s a question from our 08/31/2019 Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

Jason in Missouri says, “I want to add additional cellulose insulation to my attic, it is just a top off as I already have about 7 inches but its smooshed down as I had to walk on it for electric repairs. The space that’s really bad like rafters showing is about a 15 by 25-foot area around a pesky set of can lights lol do I just fluff by hand or do I need to rent the machine and just blow the whole attic.”

We tell Jason he can adjust the insulation by using a garden rake or a 3-tine cultivator.
