Common Areas of Insulation Removal
There are some common areas where it might be essential to remove insulation:
- Crawl Space
These spaces are one of the most common areas where insulation removal is necessary. Rodents are a common problem that many homeowners face. Rat urine and droppings are hazardous and can lead to health hazards if contaminating insulation. It is important that attic insulation is removed to help disinfect the area and undertake adequate pest control measures. In addition to this, another common problem faced includes water damage. If you’ve had a roof leak, there are chances that the insulation has absorbed the moisture, which further leads to the growth of mould spores or mildew. Over time it leads to the ineffectiveness of the insulation, requiring insulation removal and replacement with new insulation material.
Insulation Removal Process
While undertaking the insulation removal process, our staff are always completely covered in necessary safety gear. We use specialized vacuum cleaners and equipment to help you get rid of insulation. In addition to this, we can also handle insulation that may contain asbestos, such as loose-fill vermiculite insulation. Asbestos fibres may be released into the air during the insulation-removal process and can lodge in the lungs, causing scarring that may lead to disease and impaired lung function. In order to reduce the dangers associated with removing asbestos-containing insulation, the job must be left to the professionals like the team at Durham Insulation. We can replace old insulation with new insulation after removal with options like spray foam or batt & blown insulation .
