Insulation Removal Services

Our company provides insulation removal services for homes and residential properties in southeastern Wisconsin. Many homes have contaminated insulation in their attics by feces left behind by raccoons, mice, squirrels and even bats.  We remove the insulation from the attic using a versa-vac system of hoses that contains the debris from the attic and empties it into a large bag near the garbage dumpster that is outside.  This process is easiest way to keep the home clean when handling contaminated insulation.

During our initial quote we will develop a plan for the job to be done safely, efficiently, and effectively.  We will coordinate with the homeowners on what route will be the best for our insulation services. We will seal off all floor vents near our equipment and the scuttle to keep debris from falling into those areas. Our technicians will cover the floor underneath the attic scuttle with drop cloths and tarps to help insure that insulation isn’t dragged throughout the home. 

Our technicians will look and identify any loose wiring or incorrect lighting installation. They will inform the homeowner if a professional electrician is recommended to fix these problems.  We do not cover any gable vents, soffit vents, recessed lights or bathroom heat lamps with any insulation.  Our goal is to leave your home as clean as it was prior to our arrival.  Our techs will make every effort to provide you with excellent service at all times.

Moisture in the attic is often a big problem for homeowners in Wisconsin.  Wet wood in the attic can be a cause for a sagging roof deck and can even form mold, spores, fungi, and mildew.  Attics that have dark black spots and patches on their wood may be suffering from mold in their attics.  Excess heat in an attic can also be a problem do to premature failing of roofing materials, ice damming, and the forming of harmful mold/mildew.  These conditions can jeopardize the performance of a roof and may be a costly repair.

In order to remove the hazardous material from your home, we may need to order a dumpster for the waste.  All of the debris is bagged and then tossed out in the dumpster, which is removed shortly after the cleaning.  In some cases where a dumpster isn’t allowed we will take the materials and remove them ourselves.

Once the contaminated materials have been removed from the attic, Advanced Wildlife Control technicians will spray a sanitizing agent into the attic to deal with any potential hazardous waste that could be left behind.  We will also spray a pest control product in the attic to eliminate bat bugs, lice, mites, ticks and other insects that may have been left behind by the animals that where in your attic.

After your insulation is removed we will come in and insulate the attic to the proper R-value for the State of Wisconsin. We install Owens Corners Pink Fiberglas blown-in insulation.  We feel that this product is the best material currently on the market for installation into the attic space.  There are many advantages and reasons to use Fiberglas insulation. The insulation does not settle and will maintain its R-Value over a long period of time. The insulating materials in Pink fiberglass insulation are noncombustible. Its natural fire resistance is unaffected by moisture, evaporation, or time, which makes Owens Corning insulation a very reliable product.  Owens Corning Pink Fiberglas Insulation has 35% certified recycled content which is the highest of any fiberglass insulation. A pound of Owens Corning insulation saves 12 times the energy needed to produce it during the first year alone!
