Removal of Contaminated Insulation from Your Attic
If the attic insulation in your house has been contaminated by mould, moisture, asbestos, bat/bird/rat droppings, smoke and fire damage, ultra fine dust or allergens it should be removed. Those contaminants can be hazardous for the health of the those living in the home.
Asbestos exposure has been linked to the development of serious respiratory diseases and cancers, including mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis, and other conditions. Each year, approximately 500 Canadians are diagnosed with mesothelioma, a rare cancer caused almost exclusively by asbestos exposure asbestos.com/mesothelioma
Older attic insulation removal requires special equipment, health and safety training, personal protective equipment, and due diligence of dust suppression. Insulation removal causes extreme agitation of dust and debris possibly spreading contamination throughout your home.
The Healthy Home Center can investigate and remediate any of those scenarios by efficiently containing and removing contaminated insulation from attics in accordance with local health and safety regulations. The contaminated waste will be securely stored in sealed bags for disposal.
The staff of Healthy Home Center are bio-recovery and bio-hazard certified, as well as trained to work in confined spaces with asbestos, mould or lead.
The Healthy Home Center takes pride in our site preparation, for dust suppression in the pre-work set up using air filters, and tarping. Our business is healthy homes therefore every effort is taken to contain and minimize the dust, fibers, and debris entering your home.
Once the old insulation is removed and the attic space is completely vacuumed, a lockdown antifungal dust suppression spray is applied to all flat surfaces. This process successfully encapsulates any mould, asbestos, or bacteria residue so the attic environment is 100% safe. Attic and soffit venting, sealing and vapour barrier are then upgraded. The vapour barrier complements the insulation by creating an effective air barrier preventing moisture buildup and unwanted movement of air.
