Attic Insulation Removal

Roof insulation removal in Ottawa and Montreal
Ottawa & Montreal

While there are many reasons why attic insulation removal is important, one of the most common ones is to remove Zonolite insulation, which is known to contain hazardous asbestos or contaminated vermiculite.

Sometimes, removing roof insulation is necessary in order to properly treat a mold problem. And other times, the insulation is just old, worn out and needs to be replaced.

The Mold Busters team uses high-powered industrial vacuums in combination with HEPA filters for attic insulation removal in Ottawa and Montreal. The result leaves your home completely free of any dust or other airborne particles.

Our experts stay protected by wearing regulation respirators, which allow them to move and breathe freely during the entire remediation. After several rounds of HEPA vacuuming, your attic is left completely clean and ready for whatever you have planned next!

Zonolite insulation and asbestos

The biggest danger with trying to remove attic insulation yourself is that you could be inadvertently exposing yourself to asbestos. This is especially true if you live in a home that was built before the 1980s, when asbestos use in insulation was quite common.

Asbestos fibres are extremely fine, become airborne easily when disturbed, and linger in the air for hours. Inhalation of these fibres is extremely hazardous to human health, leading to mesothelioma, scarring of the lungs, lung cancer and even death.

Professional asbestos removal

At Mold Busters, we use high-power HEPA vacuums to keep dust, debris and other particles to a minimum during all our attic insulation removal projects. This is especially important if you know that your attic insulation contains asbestos or mold.

With these vacuums, we carefully cover your entire attic, picking up all of the loose insulation from every surface and every corner. Everything is then vacuumed a second time to make sure that all airborne particles are completely eliminated.

For safety purposes, Mold Busters technicians use industrial-grade respirators and wear full-body suits so that they’re protected from head to toe. They set up containment to protect the rest of your home from contamination, and they also take great care not to make a mess in your house during the attic insulation removal, a consideration that our customers appreciate endlessly.

Attic insulation and mold

Mold in the attic is often the result of roof leaks, condensation, high humidity and other forms of moisture intrusion. The result of these moisture problems is that wooden beams and joists, drywall and roof insulation become wet, providing the perfect breeding ground for mold.

Attic mold problems often go unnoticed because most people don’t spend a significant amount of time in their attics. The trouble with this is that a lot of air in your home comes through your attic. So, if there is mold in your attic, it can negatively affect the air quality in the rest of your house by spreading through your HVAC system.

To get rid of attic mold, you need to remove all wet or water-damaged materials, including old attic insulation. Again, to prevent contaminating other areas of your home, this job is best left to experts.
