Insulation removal is a vital step before our teams install new commercial or home insulation. Old insulation can reduce the effectiveness of new products, allow intrusions from pests, or even create health hazards for humans. That’s why we take care to remove as much old insulation as possible ahead of replacing it with new cellulose insulation. Today’s blog from Valley Insulation explains how we handle insulation removal at your property.
If your property has old or damaged batt insulation, or long strips of fiberglass insulation about 18 inches wide, we put these strips in large trash bags. Then we haul them away ourselves. Insulation removal for batted products may also include pest mitigation or water removal due to flooding. Charred or burned insulation could require sweeping up any ashes.
Damaged cellulose insulation requires extra steps for insulation removal. We use a 6-inch hose to suck up all of the bad insulation. We also haul away this old insulation so you don’t have to worry about cleaning up.
All of our technicians wear heavy-duty gloves during insulation removal. Fiberglass insulation contains small fibers that could irritate the skin. Gloves also protect our workers from nails, splinters, or sharp corners we may encounter when removing insulation.
Safety is our top priority when we’re on a job site, and insulation removal services are no different. We take precautions to get the job done right so no one gets hurt. There may be rotted wood in a floor, flooding in a basement, or damaged beams in an attic that we have to contend with. Once we assess the condition of a room, we take every care to prevent accidents.
The final step of insulation removal involves cleaning up every last shred of old insulation, debris, and damaged materials in a room. Our teams might sweep up items with a broom, use a large shop vacuum to suck up small pieces, or even bring in a trash dumpster if the job is large enough.
