Problems can occur if you try the removal yourself without adequate protection and expertise.
Do you know if pests or rodents have gotten into your attic space, stirring up dust, dander or drops ?
Might lead to contracting potentially fatal diseases.
Not everyone is familiar with the appearance of some potentially dangerous materials that older insulation has been made out of, such as vermiculite or other materials containing asbestos. Or older fiberglass products which can be very dangerous to work without appropriate personal protective equipment.
In addition, when performing an insulation removal, it’s often the case that the insulation is hiding the joists, wires, lighting boxes, vent pipes etc. Which makes it difficult to see where you can put your weight.
Although it is tempting to try to remove the loose fill or batts yourself and save some money, there is a very real chance that you could end up Harming your self or your property.
When is attic removal necessary ?
Smoke damage: If your home or building has been exposed to fire or smoke, even if the insulation was not directly exposed to the fire directly, smoke or ashes can contaminate the attic space and the insulation. in order to effectively eliminate the smoke odour, insulation removal is recommended.

Attic Insulation Blow-in Fiberglass or Cellulose
There is a few options when it comes to Attic insulation
Attic insulation avoid heat transfer and making buildings more energy-efficient. On hot weather, helps resist the flow of heat from the sun to your roof through your attic and into the living space. In the cold season prevents the escape of heat into the attic space, Maintaining the roof deck cool which keeps the snow dry to avoid ice dams and water or frost build up on attics, ceilings and walls.
In old houses. Fixing the Attic Ventilation, vapour barrier, and top-up the insulation in the attic space is one of the most important projects a homeowner can do to save energy and maintain a healthy house.
We can break down the most common types of insulation by putting them in three major categories: cellulose, fiberglass, and spray foam insulation.
Cellulose insulation claims to be the most “green” option; is 85% made of recycled materials like news paper and magazines. Treated with boric acid and borate, making cellulose flame resistant, pest resistant and mould resistant. More dense than fibreglass and with slight higher r-value per inch.
For being heavier settles and keeps moisture more than fibreglass.
Recommended for Farm houses for being pest resistant.
Fibreglass insulation is a man-made mineral fiber. Constructed from sand and recycled glass. Is the most popular form of insulation. More than half of the homes in Canada are lined with this kind of insulation in walls ceilings and attic spaces.
Spray foam insulation is the most expensive, but at the same time for having a higher r-value, being vapour and air barrier has a lot of benefits. Making attics and cathedral or vaulted ceilings bulletproof.
Usually attics fail due to moisture condensation. Wiring, plumbing, vent penetrations or air getting into the attic space through walls top plates can be totally sealed with the use of closed cell spray foam.
