Toronto Tapers provides professional insulation removal services in the City of Toronto and the GTA. Occasionally, over-insulation can restrict airflow, and it becomes necessary to remove attic insulation to prevent the house from becoming “stuffy.” Furthermore, it may be necessary to remove damaged insulation if there has been water, mould, or rodent droppings found, as these factors affect the indoor air quality of your home.
Generally, blown in insulation is easier to remove than batts, which requires some heavy lifting. Remember to only trust professional insulation contractors to safely remove and dispose of your insulation. Without proper safety equipment and procedures, you can run the risk of exposing yourself to hazards such as mold, asbestos, and fiberglass shards.

There is a common misconception that when doing renovations, you can install new insulation right on top of the old insulation. This may seem like a great way to get the most bang-for-your-buck, but it actually does more harm than good. Complete removal of old insulation is always recommended during a renovation. This mitigates the problem of over-insulation, which eventually leads to a "stuffy" environment.
Our crews are trained to remove insulation in a safe and professional manner. They use large vacuums to suck the existing insulation to a disposal bin. This ensures that no debris is leftover and all the old insulation has been removed. After collecting all the old insulation, we safely discard them following all City of Toronto and Province of Ontario rules and regulations for safely disposing of waste.
It may seem like an easy process for the average homeowner and do-it-yourselfer, but removing insulation should be left to the professionals. The work is tedious and time-consuming, often challenging to the most experienced professionals. You want to ensure all the contaminated insulation is removed properly, and this is difficult to do without the right vacuum equipment.
Toronto Tapers provides a wide range of services when it comes to insulated attics. Besides being able to use batt insulation and spray foam, you can choose to blow in insulation. There are two highly recommended options for blown in material: fiberglass blow or blown in cellulose. It is important to understand the differences between the two when choosing the type of insulation for your attic space.
You have to ensure you first create an air seal and vapour seal to protect from moisture. If you are opting with foam insulation, you do not need one, since closed cell spray foam is also a vapour barrier. If you are using fibreglass insulation, you will have to install a vapour barrier beforehand.
