To remove the old insulation from your attic, we use a high-powered state of the art industrial vacuum system. Located on the outside of your home to keep dust to a minimum, we run our vacuum hoses up to the attic either through a window or right through your front door and into the attic access opening. All equipment brought through your home is in top condition and creates absolutley no mess.
Our technicians, fully protected and with the proper respirator systems, carefully walk through your attic space and with our vacuum hoses remove all of the loose insulation from every corner and open space possible.
Once all the loose insulation is removed, any remaining batts of insulation are removed by hand and bagged. Once completed, everything is vacummed again right down to the drywall or your existing vapour barrier, leaving behind only empty space ready for you to carry out the next phase of your project.
All of the insulation that we remove from your attic area is removed from the site completely, and we take great care not to leave any mess behind.
Why Remove Insulation?
People have many different reasons for removing the insulation from their attic. A bungalow may be under construction with the addition of a 2nd floor. All loose insulation (good or bad) should be removed when the roof is taken off to prevent wind from distributing your insulation throughout your neighborhood.
Secondly, animals may have found a way into the area creating a nice home for themselves. With a family of racoons, squirrels, birds, etc., urine and feces can cause alot of damage to the ceiling, not to mention the harm it will cause to the people living in the house.
We also remove attic insulation in cases where there has been a fire in the home. Since the insulation will absorb the odour from the smoke, several restoration companies use us exclusively to remove the insulation completely, allowing them to seal all of the exposed wood and insuring that no smoke odour will ever be present again.
We have also removed the attic insulation in cases where the occupants have discovered that someone in the home is allergic to what is there. In these cases, they have us remove everything completely and then replace all of the insulation with a different material.
Remember, call the professionals to do this work. We can save you money and alot of back-breaking time and effort.
