When Should Insulation be Removed?
When it comes to attics, insulation removal usually isn’t necessary. Contrary to what other insulation companies might tell you, you don’t need to take out existing insulation before putting new insulation in. We can just layer new insulation over the old one. Even if it’s covered with dust, the old insulation should still be good. In fact, this is a quicker, more efficient way to bring up your attic’s R-value. However, if the old insulation shows excessive damage from fire, moisture, mold and mildew or asbestos, it needs to be removed so it doesn’t get into your indoor air.
When it comes to walls and ceilings, any old insulation should be removed before applying new insulation since they can’t be layered. Like attic insulation, any insulation layers that show severe fire, moisture, mold or asbestos damage should be removed from the home immediately.
When it comes to insulation removal, Lotze Insulation Design uses different techniques depending on the type of insulation you need removed. When it comes to blown-in fiberglass insulation, we use a high-powered vacuum that pulls in the old insulation so we can suck it all up. For rolled fiberglass, we remove each roll by hand and pack them into bags so we don’t leave glass particles behind. For spray foam insulation, we can cut and scrape off the expanded foam off any surface and clean up any foam that’s still sticking. Your safety is our top priority, so we make sure to use methods that don’t harm you or damage your home.
