New Orleans insulation removal and replacement involves hot attic work and some decisions on the types of materials to be used. Cleaning up an attic yourself can be extremely strenuous and you will subject yourself to health risks.
Tools you will need:
Insulation removal vac (HEPA bags are around 500 dollars each)
Contractor bags (typically 2-3 boxes)
A clear exit path to the dumpster or truck your hauling it away with.
Water - lots of cold water, and ICE
Space suit - Tyvek
Respirator - NOT a dust mask
A helper in case you pass out in the attic during the process!
The sense to hire us instead - will result in professional bat/bird, or bat/bird carcass removal with the attic insulation removed. We do not scrape, sand or encapsulate the woodwork, (of course we can but it is extremely expensive) but we clean it up to safe tolerable attic levels.
Now if you try insulation removal yourself, be aware you are removing soiled insulation full of bird or bat droppings! You’ll want to have a pest control operator go in an pre-treat the area so you don’t get bitten up prior to even getting started and you’ll also want to have it treated again once you get finished! Underneath the soiled insulation are more bugs that will present themselves unaffected after those nasty layers of insulation are removed - yuck!
There's a whole host of diseases, parasites and filth in there so buckle up and enjoy.
