Old, damaged or worn out insulation can be ineffective and lead to energy bills that are higher than they ought to be. And dirty insulation, which we often find where either rodents, insects or birds have got into the attic, for example, can be a hazard to the health of everyone living in the house. If you have any concerns about the insulation in your home, and think it might be time to get the old product removed, and a modern alternative fitted, we can help.
Why Might I Need Insulation Removal?
There are a number of reasons you might decide you need insulation removal. Maybe you’ve moved into a new home and want to make sure the insulation is the best available. You might choose to remove old, damaged or low grade insulation to bring it up to modern standards. Or, you might have to remove insulation if it has been damaged by fire, water or some sort of infestation. We often need to remove attic insulation where rodents have made their home in the attic, and caused damage which makes the insulation unhygienic and ineffective.
Spot Removal Services
In some cases, you might not need all of the insulation removing from your home. For example, if there is evidence of rodent damage, but only in certain areas, we can sometimes perform spot removals, to strip out only the dirty and damaged insulation, and leave the unaffected areas alone. We can then replace the areas which need attention, to bring your home back to a good standard of insulation. Give us a call if you think that spot removal might be suitable for your circumstances.
Why Do I Need a Professional To Help With Insulation Removal?
In some cases you need professional equipment to remove old, dirty or damaged insulation. For example, removing blown-in insulation requires a specialist high-powered vacuum to safely suck up the insulation, dust and debris, without releasing dangerous particles into your home. Even if you don’t need specialist vacuum equipment, in the case of batt insulation removal, an expert can help to identify any dangerous materials in your old insulation, such as asbestos or older fiberglass. We can then deal with these safely, in a way experienced homeowners can not.
