The Ins and Outs of Insulation Vacuuming.

In a nutshell, insulation vacuuming is a process that cleans the roof space and removes debris and contaminants from the ceiling cavity to ensure maximum efficiency after new insulation batts have been installed. It consists of two main steps:

  • roof space preparation and

  • the vacuuming process itself.

Regular roof cleaning, which includes roof cavity cleaning, is essential to maintaining the energy efficiency and safety of your home or commercial property.


Roof Space Preparation.

Before insulation vacuuming can begin, it’s crucial to prepare the roof space to ensure safety and efficiency.


This involves accessing the ceilings through roof tiles or via the steel tin roof and cleaning the area of any accumulated dust, animal droppings, leaves, and construction debris.

Not only does this help maintain the efficiency of your new insulation installed, but it also prevents potential health issues caused by allergens and other harmful substances.

The Power must be off for the duration of the works, and the team will be wearing all the correct PPE.

The Vacuuming Process.

Once the roof space is prepared, we can begin the insulation vacuuming process. This involves using high-powered, large capacity vacuum to extract old insulation. Our vacuum is mounted, powered by a diesel engine, and is used to remove debris and contaminants from the roof space, preparing it for new insulation.

The vacuuming process is vital for improving the energy efficiency of a property by replacing old insulation with new, more effective insulation, and reducing the risk of fire and other hazards.

We do not vacuum up asbestos and we are not licenced to do so. 


Benefits Of A Cleanly Vacuumed Roof Space In Your Perth Home.

Insulation vacuuming provides a plethora of advantages such as,

  • improving the performance of your new thermal insulation and increased energy efficiency, and

  • enhanced health and safety of the home,

  • help extend the lifespan of insulation by eliminating debris and contaminants that can reduce its effectiveness.

Health and Safety Improvements.

Roof Cavity Cleaning: A Crucial Component of Insulation Vacuuming.

As we have already discussed, but it's worth mentioning again, that roof cavity cleaning is an essential part of insulation vacuuming, as cleaning the roof cavity thoroughly is key to get rid of hazardous materials such as:

  • allergens

  • asbestos

  • bacteria

  • dust

  • other dangerous substances, including old insulation batts

Regular roof cavity cleaning is recommended to ensure that the insulation is working properly and that the air is breathing properly. 

Eliminating debris and contaminants from the roof cavity is crucial for maintaining the efficiency of the insulation and preventing potential issues. Common toxins that can accumulate in the roof cavity include lead particles and asbestos, which pose a serious risk to the inhabitants of the house. Roof cavity cleaning effectively removes these harmful substances, as well as dust, ash, grime, insects, and allergens, promoting a cleaner and healthier living environment.

Preparing for New Insulation.

Roof cavity cleaning is also a vital step in preparing the area for the installation of new insulation. By ensuring that the roof cavity is free of debris and contaminants, new insulation can be installed more efficiently and effectively, resulting in enhanced thermal insulation and increased energy efficiency.

This process ultimately contributes to a more comfortable living environment and lower energy bills.
