2. Damaged or contaminated insulation
3. Upgrading insulation

When rodents, water, or even time are introduced to your crawlspace or attic, the outcome often results in damage. When this happens, you may need elimination of the rodent or animal infestation. You may also need removal of insulation, vapor barrier, other materials and carcasses, odor control, sanitizing, ventilation, and an installation of new insulation and vapor barrier, or other materials. Sometimes it’s a home improvement project that warrants removing and replacing the insulation in an attic or crawlspace. Other times it is something as simple as old blown insulation trickling out of cracks around light fixtures and attic doors.

Insulation Removal Services, Installation, Replacement and Repair in Connecticut (CT) & Massachusetts (MA)Attic contamination degrades air quality in a home. In addition to the continuous air exchange from the crawlspace to the attic, openings in ceilings and walls for electrical, plumbing, and HVAC system access increases a family’s exposure to any attic contamination.
Roof rats are common in many neighborhoods. Less frequent, but just as contaminating are bats, pigeons, possums, and raccoons. Viruses, yeast, and bacteria stemming from their feces and urine are hazardous to human health.

To remove insulation, we start the process by laying a plastic tarp under the attic access hole. In most cases, we use a two- or three-man crew, depending on the size of the job, with two men working in the attic and the third man working below the access hole tending to his co-workers, or co-worker above.

Using this method will result in a house full of airborne fiberglass particles and any other contaminants that were in your attic.*
