Insulation Installation Santa Clarita
This home in Van Nuys had an attic full of old blown in cellulose insulation. The entire attic was a mess with debris mixed into the cellulose. We removed the blown in cellulose insulation with an industrial vacuum attic, and any debris that was too big for the vacuum was hand-bagged and removed. Debris, like the wood pictured in this attic, is commonly found in attics as a result of wind damage and rodents compromising the roof. Finding debris like this is often a telltale sign that the attic also needs air leak sealing. After the old insulation and debris were removed, any openings in the attic were sealed with spray foam.
Our team removed all of the old insulation with an industrial vacuum. After insulation removal, all cracks and crevices in the attic were air leak sealed with spray foam. Air leak sealing further ensures that this homeowner won’t be losing conditioned air; this step can greatly lighten the load of an HVAC unit. Next, we deodorized and decontaminated the attic. Next, fresh pink Owens Corning insulation to bring this home back to good standing. R-38 was installed throughout the attic.
