In fact, Cellulose fibre removal has always been difficult to remove as we have always had to do this manually. The removal of old cellulose insulation, unfortunately, gets very difficult when the water has been absorbed by the insulation.
Removal is affected as the insulation sometimes forms hard chunks and can’t be vacuumed out of the roof. The removal process would be changed to breaking the solid sections down and removing them into smaller pieces.

Cellulose Fiber Removal in Roofs
In fact, in many homes in the Cape, wind and moisture are a big factor for cellulose fibre removal. Some roofs allow a substantial amount of wind to blow through and because cellulose is loose-fill type insulation it can be blown around in the ceiling and this is a common reason for cellulose fibre removal. Our roof vacuum service removes cellulose insulation fast and effectively.
Where roofs are damaged or cornice peace have pulled away from the wall the dust falls down and cellulose fibre removal is then an option. Some clients have realized that as the cellulose fibre ages it loses a lot of its fire-retardant chemicals and this can become a problem.
Because Cellulose fibre is fine dust-like paper, in roofs that tend to have leaked the leak is not easily detected as the paper absorbs the water and the insulation can become very heavy. Wet paper on a ceiling can cause mould.
In recent years cellulose installers have been fitting tapered cones over downlights to prevent the dust from blowing onto the downlights and this has been a good chance in the installation process.
A few years ago installers of cellulose fibre would have covered the entire ceiling area. As homeowners fitted downlights they were not aware of the hazards of the paper over the downlights.
As we know some down-lights can reach temperatures of 270 deg up to 320 deg. Even the roll form insulation’s need to have a breathing hole over the downlights.
