Whether due to fire, water, mold or rodent damage, your existing insulation must come out as soon as possible from a health and performance standpoint. If you have a rodent issue, additional damage can occur to your duct system and wiring. This is why time is of the essence. Give us a call at your first opportunity so that we can make arrangements to get your attic back in good shape and performing properly.
What We Do:
You can expect only about 170 square feet of insulation being removed per hour if it is around 5" to 6" of existing insulation. It is a long, long process and expensive. Generally, 3 technicians are involved in the process to make sure the bladders are holding the insulation properly and then one technician to help guide the hose for the tech removing the insulation. This is a late Fall, Winter and Spring job.
The reason it is a slow process is that we must be careful not to disturb the existing wiring in the attic, recessed lights and fixtures and obviously, step through the sheetrock. If one of our technicians is working in an environment that is too hot, it can get dangerous quickly.
