Old Insulation Removal is part of the spray foam install process. You must remove the existing old insulation to create a better air quality and conditioned home. If you are someone who suffers from asthma or allergies, removing the old insulation helps improve your condition. Fiberglass and cellulose insulation are the cause of the dust and contaminants settling on your furniture and floating in the air in your living area which can irritate certain health conditions. Old insulation can be exerted from can lighting, vents, duct work and electrical outlets. Most homes include fiberglass or cellulose insulation. Spray Foam Insulation does not break down over time and has a life of 85+ years. Fiberglass insulation can be rolled in on the attic floor (called batts), or is blown in. Cellulose insulation is blown in on the attic floor. Fiberglass and cellulose contain contaminants that are broken down over time and exerted into your indoor environment. Most blown in insulation has unknowing pests living there who have come in from openings in your attic. These pests burrow in old insulation creating another problem for you. It is important to remove old insulation so that your home is properly sealed on the roof deck and allows your home to become conditioned. Another important part of removing the old insulation shows if you have any mold issues that can compromise your building. Most home owners are unaware of mold issues until the old insulation removal is done. Insulation Removal contractors and Spray Foam Contractors use a team that vacuums out all of this previously installed insulation and we properly dispose of it. After removal, your attic floor will be bare and pest-free. If you had issues with pests and insects in your attic, we also offer a disinfect of your attic floor to help rid any contaminants that could have been left before installing spray foam.
