With attic insulation removal in GTA, Canada Green Insulation Inc., begins with an in-depth inspection of the space. This allows for an accurate assessment of conditions, including the existing insulation as well as the physical structure.

Beyond insulation, we inspect for air leakage and energy efficiency, where additional retrofitting (air sealing and mechanical ventilation) may be required.
A truck with a HEPA vacuum will be used to suck out all of the insulation in the attic. The suction hose is brought into the attic from any window or door which is the closest to the attic hatch and In the house, our technicians put up an enclosure in the room where the attic hatch is to ensure no cross contamination. The crew change into protective clothing behind the enclosure and then enter the attic to use the suction hose to remove the asbestos containing vermiculite.
