Contaminated Insulation Removal For Your Home
By any description, contaminated insulation removal is fraught with risk. Materials like asbestos were used for many decades as an insulation material in residential homes and commercial buildings. However, asbestos is only one of the toxic materials that could be contaminating your insulation. Homeowners often replace insulation for a variety of reasons. Insulation may be old and decaying, to upgrade or better insulate their home or to repair damage caused by mold growth and animal infestation.
Contaminated Insulation Removal is not a DIY Project
While materials have become much safer due to increased regulation, many forms of traditional insulation materials which pose health risks are still present in older structures. Today, any effort at contaminated insulation removal must be managed with care, and under the supervision of an experienced contractor. Almost universally, professionals recommend the complete removal of asbestos products, mold infested insulation, or broken or damaged insulation- regardless of scope
What’s most important with contaminated insulation removal is to contract a specialist. This is not the right time for a DIY project, even for the home improvement enthusiast. Specialists are trained to handle contaminated insulation with the right equipment and the appropriate safety gear. The affected area will be cleaned properly, and quite importantly, the remains will be disposed of safely. With contaminated insulation removal, there are no shortcuts. The contaminated area must be sealed to protect occupants, and provincial regulations must be strictly followed to minimize any hazards.
