Attic insulation removal can leave a lot of dust and debris behind. After removing the insulation, we vacuum to remove the dust and debris quickly and safely.
For loose insulation, we use a gas-powered commercial vacuum with a lengthy hose that connects the vacuum to a large-volume filter bag that stores the insulation material and debris. If you have blown-in insulation in your attic, a vacuum is the safest way to remove it.
Blown-in insulation is usually at a higher elevation than your ceiling joists. You could easily step through your ceiling and cause significant damage if you’re not careful, so it is not worth the risk of trying to remove blown-in insulation by yourself.
Unfortunately, many homeowners think they can remove their attic insulation themselves without professional assistance. But, so many problems can happen if you attempt to remove attic insulation without taking the necessary precautions.
You never know what might be waiting for you underneath your old attic insulation. If your home was built more than 30 years ago, there might even be asbestos in your attic.
