Insulation Removal and Replacement
With the current high costs associated with energy and heating it might come as a surprise that anyone would want insulation removed from their property. There are, however, , there are 3 very good reasons for insulation removal and replacement: 1) over insulation, 2) defective or contaminated insulation and 3) an insulation upgrade.
Cavity Wall Insulation Removal
Cavity wall insulation needs to be removed in instances where the insulation uses an old foam system which has now deteriorated.
Also, if debris has accumulated at the bottom of the wall cavity and bridged the damp proof course or mortar has built up on wall ties (even from when the house was first built), this can cause penetrating damp by capillary action once a cavity has been insulated.
All these existing building faults can only be rectified if the cavity wall insulation is removed.
Titan insulation are highly experienced in removing all types of cavity wall insulation using a compressed-air removal system.

Loft Insulation Removal
1 - Over Insulation
Having too much insulation in a a loft can be as bad as not having enough. Adding heavy layers of insulation in an attic can drastically restrict the airflow and ventilation of your home. This can result in moisture issues on the top floor of your house and, in severe cases n lead to mould problems. Left untreated, either or both of these can cause health problems for your family especially if someone in the household suffers from allergies.
2 - Defective/Contaminated Loft Insulation
Small creatures that find their way into your loft, a leaky roof and other dangers can severely damage and even contaminate your insulation. A loftfull of squirrel/bat faeces and urine-soaked insulation are potentialfy serious health hazards for you and your family.
In addition, insulation that has been torn by animals over the years loses its functionality - shredded insulation cannot retain heat properly and is unable to provide the benefits it once did and requires replacement.
3 - Upgrading Your Loft Insulation
The insulation of today is superior in every way to the insulation that was sold over the last 20 years. New materials with improved thermal properties are now available. In many cases removing replacing your old loft insulation can result in a dramatic reduction in heating costs. This is particularly true for older homes.
Loft Insulation Removal Process
Removing old insulation from a loft can be a time-consuming and difficult process. If there are animal droppings mixed with the insulation you can expose yourself to several different diseases by disturbing the insulation and then inhaling the particles that become airborne. Dragging defective and contaminated insulation from your loft through the living space of your home is NOT a safe method of insulation removal. Using this method will result in a house full of airborne fiberglass particles and all the other contaminants that were in your loft.
Titan Insulation will remove your old insulation in a safe and effective manner using proper safety equipment which is a must for anyone working with old, contaminated insulation.
