This creates several problems. The first problem this creates is it breaks the sheetrock on your ceiling; the ceiling is a very difficult place to repair damaged sheetrock and often times a professional will have to be called in to make the area look correct again. The second and most important problem that this creates is it breaks the barrier that is shielding your home from the containments that are in your attic. When this happens, your entire home should be cleaned and disinfected. This is often very expensive and often done by a professional company that specializes in house remediation. This is often charged to the company that has caused the problem (or their insurance). This is why it is important to verify that the company has the amount of insurance necessary to do the work on your home.
