Rodents Make Attic Insulation Their Home
Using insulation contractors to properly remove your home’s insulation due to rodent contamination is crucial to a healthy living space, and is truly one of the best home improvement projects for homeowners in San Diego. Removal of contaminated insulation helps eliminate unsanitary conditions and the urine and fecal odors caused by rodents and other pests.
But most importantly, it can be the solution for you and your family’s health problems, including allergies and respiratory infections. The removal of contaminated insulation must be executed with proper precautions so that the contaminated insulation, debris, rodent droppings, and urine don’t make their way into your living area and into the air.
During the attic insulation removal and replacement process, our team of insulation experts will make sure this does not happen by using the proper equipment and appropriate procedures. We are also equipped to perform attic cleaning and decontamination before installing new insulation.
- Improve indoor air quality in your home
- Clean out existing insulation to install new insulation to improve energy efficiency
- Decontaminate rat and mouse infestations & prepare the attic space for rodent-proofing
The Attic Insulation Removal Process
Every one of our insulation removal projects starts the same way, with meticulous initial preparation. The attic floor and walls leading to your attic entry are covered with a durable protective plastic sheeting. Pictures, furniture, and other valuables are moved to a secure location to ensure that they are not damaged or harmed in any way.
Professional insulation removal costs vary by the size of your attic and from home to commercial insulation as well as the type of insulation material you want to use in new installation, from spray foam insulation, fiberglass insulation, cellulose insulation, radiant barrier insulation, etc. The best way to get a cost estimate for your project is to schedule a free inspection with us.
Removal of Blown-In Insulation
Blown-In insulation (cellulose, rockwool and fiberglass insulation) is vacuumed out of the attic floor and walls into large insulation removal bags. This is done via a powerful 19 HP vacuum insulation removal machine which is placed outside of the structure. A 6’’ extended hose is then fed into the attic area where the old attic insulation is to be removed.
The insulation is then vacuumed out, along with any rodent waste and debris, leaving your attic space clean and free of rodent droppings and insulation, and ready for attic decontamination and rodent proofing.
Removal of Batting (Roll) Insulation
Batting insulation cannot be vacuumed out. Instead, the insulation must be removed by hand. As each piece is removed, it is rolled up and placed into heavy duty insulation removal bags. These bags are removed from the attic, transported offsite, and disposed of properly. We go above and beyond to ensure no attic contaminates to enter your living space, so every square foot of your home stays clean.
Next, the attic needs to go through a vacuuming process. Just like the removal process of the blown-in insulation, we use our powerful 14 HP vacuum insulation removal machine. Any remaining debris & rodent waste is then vacuumed out completely bypassing the hose between each and every one of the joists.
Attic Decontamination, Rodent Proofing, Crawl Space Cleaning and Re-Insulation
Once the home insulation removal procedure is done, the attic is ready for our decontamination process, rodent proofing, attic cleaning, crawl space cleaning and re-insulating. Call today to schedule a free estimate with our experienced technicians. We will evaluate the job and see how we can help you with your insulation removal needs!
