We specialize in Retrofit work-insulation removal. Retrofit simply means that we remove old and add new insulation to existing structures. After 20 to 30 years in use home insulation loses its effectiveness and becomes ridden with dust and dirt, provoking allergies and disrupting your home. Water leaks from Hurricanes, busted water pipes or leaking water heaters etc. you need to replace the damaged insulation and reinstall with new.
Professional Insulation removal is something that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Our team has created a safe, effective method for removing dirty contaminated insulation from attics or crawlspaces. Using commercial insulation removal equipment we are able to remove all of the insulation in an attic without any of it going into the living space of the home.
This ensures that none of the dust, debris or animal feces in the attic makes its way down into your house. This is the safest and most practical way to remove old insulation from an attic.
An attic that is full of old, dusty, contaminated insulation is not only a potential health risk to the home's occupants but it is also impracticable. Who would want to store their possessions amongst filthy insulation, years of dust-mites and animal droppings? Reclaim your attic and turn it into usable space with our insulation removal and attic clean out services.
Our attic insulation removal services offer the extraction and removal of old damaged cellulose, fiberglass, and polyester batt insulation due from animal urine, dead animals, water damage (storms-leaks).

Our staff provides expert services to the Greater Houston, Fort Bend, & Harris County area in attic insulation and old insulation removal and extraction, helping to bring you a happier, healthier home.
Roof leaks, fire damage, rats and vermin infestation are some reasons for insulation removal. We have the proper machinery to do the job right. Professional Insulation removal is something that we take very seriously. Our technicians have developed a safe, effective procedure for removing soiled insulation from attics or crawlspaces. Using commercial insulation removal equipment we are able to remove all of the insulation in an attic WITHOUT any of it traveling through the living space of the home. This ensures that none of the dust, debris or animal feces in the attic makes its way down into your house. This is the safest and most practical way to remove old insulation from an attic.
Attic contamination degrades air quality in a home. In addition to the continuous air exchange from the crawl space to the attic, openings in ceilings and walls for electrical, plumbing and HVAC system access increases a family's exposure to any attic contamination.
Roof rats are common in many neighborhoods in the Houston Metropolitan area. Less frequent, but just as contaminating are bats, pigeons, possums and raccoons. Viruses, yeast and bacteria stemming from their feces and urine are hazardous to human health.
To remove insulation we start the process by laying a plastic tarp under the attic access hole. In most cases we use a two, or three-man crew depending on the size of the job, with two men working in the attic and the third man working below the access hole tending to his co-workers, or co-worker above.
*Dragging old insulation through the living space of a house is NOT a safe method of removing insulation. Using this method will result in a house full of airborne fiberglass particles and any other contaminants that were in your attic.*

Over Insulation/Upgrading Insulation
We often see attics that are strewn with animal feces from squirrel, raccoons, bat and mice infestations. In these cases the droppings and urine deposits often create strong odors and can be hazardous. Sometimes its a home improvement project that warrants removing and replacing the insulation in an attic. Other times it is something as simple as old blown insulation trickling out of cracks around light fixtures and attic doors.
An attic that is full of old, dusty, contaminated insulation is not only a potential health hazard to the home's occupants but it is also unusable. Who would want to store their belongings amongst filthy insulation, years of dust-mites and animal droppings? Reclaim your attic and turn it into usable space with our insulation removal, new wood floor decking, and attic clean out services.
Although the insulation industry is responsible for the majority of the problems we see in attics, there are others who go up into the attic to perform repairs or upgrade existing systems. (Plumbers, Pest Control, Electricians, Cable, or A/C workers)
Other subcontractors either may not realize the damage they are doing or they simply don’t care.
Over the years we have observed damage done by electricians, carpenters, HVAC technicians, security system installers, and audio installers. There is often little regard for fiberglass batts. The batts make people itch, so after they move them away from where they are working they don’t put the material back.
A/C technician moved insulation & didn't put back
In the case of blown insulation, we’ll sometimes see the material in areas where work is being performed compressed to the point where a minimum of 50% of the R-value is lost. These types of insulation problems are more common than people realize.
Texas Gulf Coast Storm Damage Repair from Wet Insulation
Heavy rain from major storms or Hurricane s have damage thousands of Texas Gulf Coast area homes and businesses that need repair. Experts strongly recommend that insulation soaked in dirty or contaminated water, including flood waters, be replaced as soon as possible. Mold can cause major damage to your home and health. While fiberglass insulation will regain its thermal resistance once dry, contaminated waters could leave behind a welcoming environment for mold growth.
For this reason, while surveying your home for water damage, wet insulation should not be overlooked! Wet insulation has reduced thermal resistance and worse, it can also be a breeding ground for mold growth. Experts also note that cellulose insulation, including loose or blown-in varieties, need to be replaced whenever they are wet, even from clean water. Once water damaged, this insulation can lose its anti-fungal and fire retardant properties. Gulf Coast Insulation is here to help clean up the water, storm, or Hurricane damage at your Gulf Coast area home or business.
