Here are some reasons our clients hire us to remove attic insulation or crawl space insulation or even wall insulation: Heath and Energy Efficiency
Upon evaluation of the attic environment there are times when we do not recommend attic insulation removal. The most common of these is if the insulation in the attic is clean but the house is not performing well. In this case we can insulate over the existing insulation.
We protect your home by using floor coverings and using plastic to protect your surfaces and reduce dust as the traffic is coming in and out of your home. A lead tech will inspect the work area with you and discuss any concerns or extra preparations that are needed to be safe and secure while the work is being done and after.
We will remove the existing insulation either by hand or using a gas powered heavy duty insulation removal vacuum that will remain outside and has a long hose that is connected to collection bags outside as well.
We then vacuum the floor of the attic to remove any dirt and insulation dust leaving the attic floor ready for sensitization.
A EPA sanitizer will then be fogged into the attic to sanitize from any germs or other harmful bacteria that could be left behind from rodent feces.
Upon completion of the attic insulation removal, we will then thoroughly clean up and leave the home in as good of shape or better than when we first arrived
When our work is done, we will do a walk through with you to ensure that you are satisfied with the quality of our work, and that there has been no damage to your home or belongings.
Here are some things that you need to know before you remove insulation on your own.
