Removal of old loft insulation and loft cleaning
Old insulation removal is a critical step that it is highly recommended to let professionals perform. Usually in lofts, there is a lot of mess, dust, bacteria and infectious viruses become airborne due to rodent infestation, mold and mildew. Old insulation is often home to rats, squirrels, raccoons and insect lava during their hibernation so in many cases they will be ruined and soiled with diseases.
Debris left around the loft is very dangerous. Items such as nails, splinters, old cardboard boxes and items that might fall. We often see rodent droppings – feces and urine and from time to time dead rodents that completely contaminate the loft. Furniture, wood and other materials also invite termites, ants, and other animals.
We take safety precautions from start to finish. we carefully remove all damaged and old insulation from the loft to assure that harmful airborne particles do not get into your home. Removing old insulation improves the indoor air quality and prevents future infestation so it is always better to replace the insulation and not to add new one on top.
After we remove everything from the loft safely, we perform loft decontamination.
The purpose of loft decontamination is to prevent the spread of micro-organisms and other contaminants that may threaten your health, your family or employees.
