Blown-In Insulation

Nature’s Own Chimney Cleaning Is Introducing T•A•P Blown-In Foam Insulation

EPA-registered TAP® Pest Control Insulation is the newest solution for removing and deterring unwanted pests from your house while helping you to save money on energy costs throughout the year.


  • Thermal
  • Acoustical
  • Pest Control

The three primary benefits of using TAP Pest Control Insulation provided by Nature’s Own Chimney Cleaning help to deliver comfort, protect your family’s health and save you money.

As an EPA-registered pesticide, TAP Pest Control Insulation controls and deters common pests that come into the home through the roof and attic such as ants, cockroaches, silverfish, termites, and of course other pests.

As cellulose insulation, TAP Pest Control Insulation is made by grinding up old recycled newspapers into small pieces and the paper fibers start connecting begin to create small air pockets in the insulation. The small air pockets combined with the unique characteristics of cellulose fiberous paper is the key to the innovative and superior performance of the TAP Pest Control Insulation.

All qualities help to achieve a comfort level that is unsurpassed by other insulation products that are currently on the market.

1) The Thermal Benefit of  T•A•P® Pest Control Insulation

TAP Pest Control Insulation serves as the blanket for your house when installed in the attic. The cellulose paper fibers interconnect and create an almost perfect balance of the qualities homeowners must look for in their insulation: it is dense enough to deter airflow, while light enough to trap in heat.

Heat can flow much easier through harder materials than through air. The small cellulose paper fibers of the TAP Pest Control Insulation will interconnect to create small air pockets that work to slow the flow of heat through the insulation. What makes TAP Pest Control Insulation innovative and unique is that the paper fibers are heavy enough to also slow the airflow through the insulation.

The amount in which any insulation product deters the flow of heat through it is measured in Resistance-value or R-value.  The greater the R-value is the better indication of the general performance of the insulation.  The R-value of the insulation currently in your house is increased by adding even more insulation. TAP Pest Control Insulation is significantly superior insulation with a great R-value. It prevents heat loss with conduction and convection and is very densely packed to preventing heat loss through air infiltration and radiation.

One of the biggest differences between TAP Pest Control Insulation and the other loose insulation types is the ability to slow the airflow as well as heat. Since TAP Pest Control Insulation is significantly denser, TAP® Pest Control Insulation does a much better job to slow the flow of air.  This is particularly important throughout the colder times of the year when the flow of air throughout your house is the strongest and when you depend on your insulation to work the best.



Adding TAP Pest Control Insulation to your attic will save homeowners more than 33% on their yearly energy bill. Don’t take our word for it. Click here to see the U.S. Department of Energy’s formula and determine the savings on your next energy bill.

2) Acoustical Benefit of T•A•P® Pest Control Insulation

TAP Pest Control Insulation works very well at reducing the sound that flows through the ceiling of your house.  Many of the characteristics of TAP Pest Control Insulation that provides your thermal benefits will also contribute to the sound benefits.

Just as it is easier for heat to flow through solid materials, it just as easy for sound to flow through the same solid materials.  The small air pockets that are created by the interconnection of paper fibers in TAP, will reduce the amounts of sound that is transmitted from fiber to fiber. Therefore, the noise is ultimately reduced through the ceiling where TAP was installed. Installed at a level of R-60 across your entire house, the amount of normal outdoor noises is nearly completely eliminated.

3) The Pest Control Benefits of T•A•P® Insulation

TAP Insulation is a unique and innovative form of natural pesticide for your attic as well as an excellent green, recycled and organic insulation material. The key aspect of TAP Insulation that provides the anti-pest benefit is the use of a specialized form of borate material used as an additive to the paper fibers within the insulation.  The borate material being used in TAP Pest Control Insulation is used by pest management professionals in, basements, around baseboards of homes, cabinets, and even around the outside of the house to kill insects.

The borate material is applied to the paper fibers during our patented manufacturing process. The natural characteristics of the paper fibers make it possible for the specialized borate particles to lightly stick to the fibers. The borates are then evenly distributed throughout the insulation making it impossible for insects to crawl through it without contacting the borate particles.

Once an insect comes in contact with TAP Pest Control Insulation, the borate particles become connected to the insect.  Since most household insects are ‘self-grooming,’ they will ultimately ingest the particles which begin the process of killing the insect.  The borate particles work to kill the insect by disrupting the insect’s digestive process causing the insect to starve.

TAP® Pest Control Insulation… a unique form of pesticide for your attic as well as an excellent insulation material.
