Insulation Removal

Orange County Insulation Removal Service

Have you noticed strange odors around your home lately? Are your energy bills higher than expected? Maybe you can’t seem to control the temperature as well as you used to.

If any of these things are happening to you, you may be due for an insulation replacement.

Your home’s insulation is one of the most important elements of your home’s construction and energy efficiency. It keeps the elements outside, allowing greater control of your home’s environment. It also affords you privacy, keeping conversations being closed doors from seeping through the walls.

Damaged insulation can also become home to pests and vermin, whose animal droppings can cause health concerns for your family. If so, you’ll need to remove and replace it ASAP to get rid of a possible pest infestation.

Find Out What's In Your Attic!

Insulation Removal Process

Over our years as insulation contractors, we have learned that no two houses are the same, and we appreciate the uniqueness of your home.

That’s why the first step of any insulation removal project is a detailed inspection and preparation. An insulation installation expert will travel to your home and analyze your attic space, free of charge. The attic professional will help identify issues like

dirty insulation (moldy or soiled insulation from rodent droppings), wet insulation (contaminated insulation from constant moisture), possible asbestos, or anything that will help determine the overall attic insulation cost of the project. Depending on the location of the contaminated insulation, it may be necessary to inspect your home’s air ducts to ensure the issues are not spreading to other areas of the home.

Then, all furniture and decorations are moved into safe storage for the duration of the project, and anything that can’t be moved is covered in protective sheeting, along with the attic floors and walls.

Once that’s done, what happens next depends on the kind of wall insulation you have. Each kind involves its own special tools and procedures to remove properly.

The two main categories are:

Blown-In Insulation – Usually fiberglass insulation, rockwool, and cellulose insulation – This kind of insulation material can be vacuumed out. However, an extremely powerful industrial vacuum is required:

  • A 23-horsepower vacuum is stationed outside the structure

  • A 6” diameter hose is then extended into the attic space

  • All insulation material and any related debris are vacuumed out securely

Batting (roll) / Batts Insulation – A common application, pre-cut pieces of rockwool or fiberglass batt insulation cannot be vacuumed out like the blown-in insulation variety. Instead, each piece needs to be individually removed by hand. The process entails:

  • Carefully rolling up each piece

  • Bagging and sealing the pieces

  • Disposing of the bags

At Attic Construction, our home insulation service is prepared to take on any kind of existing insulation you have.

After the removal, our insulation installation team can also replace your attic with state-of-the-art and brand-new insulation. In addition, we will install protective measures, such as sealed entry points, to prolong the life of your new insulation. We also provide attic cleaning and decontamination to keep your attic clean from pests, mold growth, rodent infestation, rodent feces, etc.

Keep your family safe, secure, and comfortable! It all starts with a free inspection.

Rodents Carry Harmful Viruses

A large cause of insulation issues is rodent infestation. It’s very important to take care of all of your home’s insulation and pest–related issues to promote rodent exclusion and continue to have proper insulation. Pest control may not be sufficient enough to rid your home of rodents.

Fortunately, unlike other insulation contractors, we can also provide rodent proofing services in conjunction with residential attic insulation services to ensure rats, mice and other pests no longer have a way to enter your home.

When you have rats and mice in your attic, you’re storing much more than old Christmas boxes and clothing. As a homeowner, you could be harboring a plethora of harmful diseases and health concerns in your old insulation that could impact your indoor air quality. Such as:


Lymphocytic Chorio-Meningitis (LCM)


Hanta Virus

Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever


Rat Bite Fever

Eosinophilic Meningitis

Murine Typhus


The Plague

Unsanitary Conditions

I had a very positive experience with everyone I worked with at this company. The original estimator was very helpful and detail-oriented. The office staff was also polite & professional. Team Frederick came to my house to do the work. They were all very polite. They took extra time to be sure that everything that I was promised was delivered. The house was left very clean! Very happy with the entire experience.
