Insulation removal is a messy and potentially dangerous job unless undertaken by experienced professionals. This is because the roof cavity may contain large amounts of lead, dust, vermin and other allergens not to mention working in a confined space at high temperatures for long periods of time.
Old insulation should be removed if it is 15 years or older due to the low standards in home insulation during those periods of time. Old insulation poses a huge fire hazard if down lights have been installed in the home and should be removed immediately as the fire retardant chemicals in old insulation disintegrates over time. Also the rodent retardant chemicals break down allowing those 'nastys' to nest in your home.
To maximise your families home energy usage, your home should be kept up to date with the minimum R-Value requirements set out by the BUILDING CODES OF AUSTRALIA. The current minimum for Perth is 4.0 R-Value.
We receive countless calls from customers who attempt to remove old insulation from their roof spaces but fail due to inexperience or lack of heavy duty machinery.
