Insulation Removal Services

Professional Insulation removal is something that we take very seriously. Our technicians have developed a safe, effective procedure for removing soiled insulation from attics or crawlspaces. Using commercial insulation removal equipment we are able to remove all of the insulation in an attic without any of it traveling through the living space of the home. This ensures that none of the dust, debris or animal feces in the attic makes its way down into your house. This is the safest and most practical way to remove old insulation from an attic.

Why Insulation Removal?

There are three main reasons to have insulation removed from an attic:

  1. Over Insulation
  2. Damaged/Contaminated Insulation
  3. Upgrading Insulation

We often see attics that are strewn with animal feces from squirrels, raccoons, bats and mice infestations. In these cases the droppings and urine deposits often create strong odors and can be hazardous. Sometimes it's a home improvement project that warrants removing and replacing the insulation in an attic. Other times it is something as simple as old blown insulation trickling out of cracks around light fixtures and attic doors.

We often get questions concerning removal of insulation from homes whose attics have been invaded by messy animals:

  1. How much insulation will you remove?
  2. What do you recommend?

These are very good questions. And the answer is, "It depends."

Insulation Removal Situation 1:

Here is a situation where the entire attic was covered with bat guano (hardened feces). Obviously it was necessary to remove all of the insulation and recover with new insulation.

Insulation Removal Situation 2:

We also do "spot removal." This involves taking a careful survey of the surface of the insulation, looking for animals (dead or alive) and their nests, young, foodstuffs, and droppings. When evidence of animal intrusion, sometimes it is only necessary to remove that area and replace the insulation.

For the Prudent Homeowner:

Full removal is normally the best option, as a complete investigation would involve removal of the old insulation anyway. Full removal eliminates the potential of leaving dead animals, feces, damaged electrical wiring (a fire hazard), residual odors, bacteria, mites, mold, and micro-organisms under the surface of the insulation. These unhealthy invaders can enter the living area of the home and cause sick-house syndrome: especially if there is ductwork in the attic. With a new, clean blanket cellulose or blown in insulation, the homeowners can rest assure there is nothing hiding in the attic to invade their home.

Why Insulate Your House?

Heating and cooling account for 50 to 70% of the energy used in the average American home. Inadequate insulation and air leakage are leading causes of energy waste in most homes. Insulation:

  • Saves money and our nation's limited energy resources
  • Makes your house more comfortable by helping to maintain a uniform temperature throughout the house
  • Makes walls, ceilings, and floors warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer

The amount of energy you conserve will depend on several factors: your local climate; the size, shape, and construction of your house; the living habits of your family; the type and efficiency of the heating and cooling systems; and the fuel you use. Once the energy savings have paid for the installation cost, energy conserved is money saved - and saving energy will be even more important as utility rates go up.

Attic Restoration

An attic that is full of old, dusty, contaminated insulation is not only a potential health hazard to the home's occupants but it is also unusable. Who would want to store their belongings amongst filthy insulation, years of dust-mites and animal droppings? Reclaim your attic and turn it into useable space with our insulation removal and attic cleanout services.

Energy Savings

The insulation of today is far superior to the insulation that was used only10-15 years ago. When you have the old, inadequate insulation in your attic removed and replaced with the proper amount of modern insulation you WILL see a noticeable reduction in your heating costs.

Why not just go over the old insulation with a new layer?

When you install a layer of brand new insulation directly over the top of old filthy insulation that is strewn with years' worth of dust and animal droppings you are creating a "Bacterial Lasagna" in your attic. This can negatively affect the energy conservation and air quality of your home. It can also create moisture problems and in turn generate staining in drywall ceilings. Do you really want this situation in your home?
