Frequent questions about our attic insulation service
Removing asbestos insulation is best left to abatement pros
When homeowners learn their attic has asbestos insulation, some mistakenly think any insulation company can get rid of the problem. This couldn’t be further from the truth: they need asbestos abatement. Their asbestos-containing insulation has to be removed by an abatement company with the proper licensing in accordance with state and federal regulations.
Asbestos was commonly used in home insulation materials. Builders would fit it behind walls, wrap it around pipes, or roll it on attic floors like blankets. The dangers of asbestos exposure were not known, so nobody complained.
Today if you live in a Southern California single unit house, townhouse, condo or apartment (regardless of the year it was built), you are required under Rule 1403 to get an independent asbestos survey report PRIOR to hiring a contractor to begin an attic renovation project.
Getting an asbestos survey is the lawful and safe thing to do. Naturally it would be a conflict of interest for us to perform the survey AND be your asbestos abatement contractor. Contact us to be referred to an independent testing and consulting company that can help you get the proper asbestos survey performed.
If your report says your attic has asbestos insulation, immediately contact our abatement pros to have it removed. Once we have completed the abatement, we will then install new attic insulation.
Fortunately many types of attic insulation do not contain asbestos materials. We can help you in either case. Whether it requires asbestos abatement or just a standard removal protecting home and family from rodent contamination we can perform the job
