WHY YOU NEED INSULATION REMOVAL

Mold & Water Damage

  • When water enters your attic from the roof, new or old it will cause mold if left untreated.  Mould can grow when temperatures fluctuate, causing the insulation and wood to degrade.  RPM will remove your insulation and the mold on your wood.

Raccoon/rat/mouse Infestations

Where there can be rodent and bed bug issues in the house, it is strongly advised that your insulation be removed.  Replacing with new and healthier insulation will improve your homes quality of life.   This will help reduce the health risks related to these and other animals/insects.

Renovations

Getting your ceiling replaced?  Adding pot lights?  New wiring needed?  RPM will remove your old insulation to insure proper access to all areas of your attic.

Fire and Smoke

If your home has suffered fire and smoke damage resulting in your insulation getting wet and/or causing a constant smoke odour, it might be trapped inside the fibres of your attic insulation. To get rid of the odour and improve your homes comfort levels again, replacing the insulation is necessary.
