Our Attic Insulation Removal Process
Depending on your structure and the type of insulation used Alliance will assess your project needs and provide a detailed estimate for bringing your attic back to a clean and more energy-efficient space. Alliance begins each insulation removal project with meticulous preparation. We cover the floor and walls leading to your attic entry with protective plastic sheeting. Contents from your attic are moved to a secure location to ensure that they are not damaged before the insulation is removed. The best way to get a cost estimate for your project is to schedule a free inspection here, or by calling one of our friendly account representatives.
Removal of Batting (Roll) Insulation
Batting insulation must be rolled up and removed by hand. Each piece is rolled up and placed into specialized insulation removal bags. These heavy-duty bags are removed from the attic, transported offsite, and disposed of properly. Alliance technicians then vacuum out the entire area to remove any remaining loose insulation, rodent droppings and other debris between each joist.
Removal of Blown-In Insulation
Alliance technicians vacuum out blown-in insulation such as fiberglass, cellulose and rock wall. An extended six-inch hose is fed into the attic area where the old insulation is then vacuumed out, along with any rodent waste and debris. All waste is pumped into large insulation removal bags using specialized machinery which remains outside of the structure.

If you have rats and mice in your attic, you could be harboring a plethora of harmful diseases and health concerns.
Rodent urine and feces contain allergens that once inhaled, can be a major cause of sinus inflammation and asthma for you and your loved ones.

Alliance technicians are experts in providing clean and healthy living environments. Our technicians are trained to conduct a thorough inspection to uncover areas in your attic and crawl space that rodents enter, frequently visit or have made their home.

Air Duct Cleaning
All buildings with air conditioning or forced-air heating systems have a ductwork system made of supply and return ducts. These air ducts are channeled through attic spaces in most structures. Supply ducts convey air that has been conditioned to your living space, and return ducts move the air back to your AC system for reconditioning. While removing old attic insulation, the Alliance team can inspect and evaluate potential problems that may be visible in existing air duct systems. If problems are found our experts can provide recommendations to resolve any issues and clean the system.

Should You Remove Old Attic Insulation?
There are a few situations where removing the insulation from your building is necessary. These situations involve the condition and age of the insulation. You should remove your insulation based on:
– Mold: Condensation from your air conditioner can drip into your insulation, which naturally holds moisture. Retaining water allows mold to grow, which can degrade your air quality.
– Animals: Small animals love to nestle into a building’s insulation. They’ll leave dirt and droppings, which will pollute the air.
– Age: Insulation loses its effect over time. Remove your insulation to make room for a new energy-efficient product that will reduce your energy bill and improve your air quality.
How Long Does It Take to Remove Attic Insulation?
With the right crew, attic insulation removal can be a quick process. Professionals can remove insulation from a 1,500-square-foot attic in four to six hours under ideal conditions. Factors that extend the removal time include excess amounts of debris, obstructions like pillars and piping, limited standing room, complications from asbestos insulation and inclement weather.
