Remove Attic Insulation

Remove Attic Insulation

The time to remove attic insulation is normally when it is damaged from rodents, fire or flood.  If the insulation is not damaged it can be left in the attic and new insulation can be installed right over it.  This can save money both in insulation cost and the cost of removal.

Insulation Vacuum

Insulation Vacuum

When you need to remove the attic insulation , a large gas-powered insulation vacuum is used.  A long hose goes from the high-output vacuum up into the attic.  The insulation does not have to be bagged inside, bringing the mess through your home.

The insulation is vacuumed up through the large hose and into a disposal bag for collection.  The collection bags are changed as they are filled and tied off to keep the collected debris contained.

The vacuum can collect both rolled insulation as well as blown in cellulose and fiberglass insulation.  Small debris, dirt, rodent nests and droppings can all be removed.  Cleaning rodent droppings is dangerous work and should only be done with proper equipment.

Once the vacuum and insulation removal is complete, the attic can be sanitized.  The sanitation is done with liquid sanitizer which can be sprayed in or fogged in.  Optionally, the attic can go through an ozone shock treatment to ensure the most effective attic sanitizing.

The attic is now ready to be prepped and have new insulation blown into the attic or have a radiant barrier installed.  Trying to remove attic insulation can be a lot of work and Pest Control Insulation Guys is the one to make it happen.
