Attic floor and loose-fill insulation

I am planning to put in an attic floor. There is loose-fill insulation in the attic now. Not sure whether it is cellulose or fiberglass (it looks white like cotton)

Do I need to remove the loose-fill insulation, put in the insulation batts and then install the floor? Seems like a lot of work.

No need to remove old insulation unless it's moisture damaged. If it's still

nice and fluffy, I would just leave it there and put your floor boards right

over it. If your house is older, it probably is cotton, if newer it probably

is fiberglass.
