How We Clean Insulation out of an Attic

Blown-in insulation, sometimes known as loose-fill insulation, is a popular form of insulation for your attic.   Offering  a lower cost, better energy efficiency and noise-muffling properties than regular insulation.  However, if you’re looking to clean the insulation from  your attic,  it can be a huge pain.  RGS Crawl Space Insulation will clean out blown-in insulation from your attic. In this article, we’re going to explain our process and how we make it happen.

Preparation is Key

First, we make certain that the right measures and safety steps are taken before we do anything in your attic.  If RGS Crawl Space Insulation did not install your insulation,  safety checks will ensure that the insulation does not contain any traces of asbestos. This is especially important when your home is over 50 years old. It’s important that you personally do not check or disrupt your insulation because when there is asbestos, it could put your life in danger when you’re unprepared. If asbestos is present,  we take the proper safety measures necessary to ensure  safe removal of the insulation.

Mold and Contamination

We’ll also make sure to check for any signs of mold or rodents. Mold typically forms when there is a leak or excess moisture in your attic. In addition, your insulation may also be contaminated with urine, droppings or the carcasses of dead rodents. This is why it is important to prepare before removing your insulation. We understand just how dangerous it can be to remove blown-in insulation without any idea of what could be in your attic, so we take appropriate measures to protect our contractors and your home.

Should you have concerns regarding your attic space. It’s crucial that you do not disturb the insulation or attempt to remove it on your own. Our experts will take care of the entire process. With large or unstable attics,  we may  install large planks across joints in order to maneuver around your attic safely. These will be removed at the end of the cleaning process. 

Preparation is key in the removal process. The safer we keep our staff, the faster and better the results. Be it wearing the right safety equipment, scanning for asbestos or even watching out for rodent infestations, our team will take every safety measure to ensure an efficient and effective removal of your blown-in insulation.

Professional Equipment

Our experts are equipped with high-powered professional equipment that can get the job done in record time. A primary tool we will be using is an industrial-strength filtered vacuum to clean up all of the loose insulation. This is  routed to bags that we’ll dispose of properly,  as they fill up. The hose will typically be routed outside, rather than being kept in your attic or home.  

The industrial-strength vacuum allows effective and efficient clean-up.  Since the insulation is routed directly into trash bags, it speeds up the removal process and there’s less time spent clearing out the insulation. This results in a fast removal process with no risk to you or our contractors. 

A Clean Attic is a Good Attic

Our contractors will work their way through your attic, focusing on clearing up any loose bits of insulation. We may need to loosen the insulation if it is stuck or old. We make sure to clean up any bits that may be clinging onto joints or stuck in small nooks around your attic. If needed, we use a smaller vacuum or a brush to complete the clean out.
