Affordable Pest, LLC Offers T.A.P Insulation

TAP offers residential and commercial properties the opportunity to create long term energy savings while preventing a variety of common pest related infestations.

Affordable Pest today announced that it became an authorized supplier and installer of T.A.P. Insulation in the Baltimore, D.C and Northern Virginia areas. T.A.P Insulation is a blown in cellulose based insulation that is treated with boric acid. This unique combination of boric acid and cellulose offers outstanding thermal protection and stops pest infestations cold while being completely non-toxic to homeowners.

Colin Fitzgerald, Director of Business Development at Affordable Pest said, "TAP offers residential and commercial properties the opportunity to create long term energy savings while preventing a variety of common pest related infestations. We feel this green approach to energy savings and pest control to be an excellent opportunity and value for many of our existing and future clients."

Recent government studies show that about 65% of homeowners have about half of the necessary insulation in their homes as they should, needlessly wasting money on their heating and cooling bills. As a part of a TAP Insulation installation, attics and crawl spaces are treated for any pest infestations, damaged insulation is repaired and TAP insulation is blown over the rafters and existing insulation until the desired R value is achieved.

The Department of Energy recommends Virginia, DC and Maryland homeowners have a minimum R value of 38 in their attics, 13 in their exterior walls and 25 in their crawlspaces. Typical TAP Insulation installations are able to easily exceed these ratings, thus saving the homeowner money on heating and cooling bills.

TAP Insulation is made of completely natural products: recycled newsprint and boric acid. For generations, boric acid has been used by homeowners to kill various insects such as cockroaches, stink bugs, earwigs, ants, fleas, silverfish and a variety of other household pests while being completely safe to humans and their pets. In fact, boric acid is found in many common household products such as soap eye drops and Silly Putty. Besides providing outstanding pest protection, TAP Insulation prevents thousands of tons of newsprint from ending up in landfills, thus reducing a homeowner’s carbon footprint.

Homeowners should contact Affordable Pest, LLC toll free at 1-855-PEST-123 (1-855-737-8123) or via the web at for a free evaluation of their current attic and crawlspace insulation. For a limited time, Affordable Pest is offering 10% off to any Maryland, DC and Virginia resident who has TAP Insulation installed.
