Insulation Removal

Attic Insulation Removal Company in San Diego

Removing insulation from your attic or crawl-space may be necessary due to rodent infestation, debris, dirt or damage caused by remodeling and construction. Removing insulation is a hard and tedious project that requires specialized equipment and safety gear. All of the technicians at Attic Construction Inc are properly trained on every aspect of the attic cleanup, insulation removal and insulation installation process.

If your insulation has been damaged due to rodent infestation, construction, and remodeling, or any other reason, then it may no longer perform the way it was intended. This can result in increased energy costs to heat and cool your home.

 

Rodents Make Attic Insulation Their Home

Properly removing insulation due to rodent contamination is crucial to a healthy environment. 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 process of removing the contaminated insulation, we make sure this does not happen by using the proper equipment and appropriate procedures.

 

The Attic Insulation Removal Process

Every one of our insulation removal projects starts the same way, with meticulous initial preparation. The 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.

 

Removal of Blown-In Insulation

Blown-In insulation (fiberglass, cellulose and rockwool) is vacuumed out of the attic 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 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 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.

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.

 

Decontamination, Rodent Proofing, and Re-Insulation

Once the insulation removal procedure is done, the attic is ready for our decontamination process, rodent proofing, 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!
