Many of the homes throughout the Chicagoland, as well as south and central Illinois, have been occupied for close to a century. Some of these houses have been retrofitted throughout the years to help keep the home and its occupants, healthy and happy. A common finding of a home energy audit is that attic insulation or basement insulation is in bad shape. It’s often deteriorated, suffering from a host of issues including water damage and pollutants. The experts at Assured Insulation Solutions are trained in insulation removal and replacement and are here to make the process as seamless as possible.

What’s in My Old Insulation?

The fact of the matter is, the insulation in your attic or basement isn’t meant to last forever. In many houses, insulation has been kept several decades past its intended lifespan. Just as is the case with food, this can make your insulation a breeding ground for some unwelcome guests such as:

  • Mold
  • Critters
  • Vermin
  • Bad odors
  • Water damage

The professional removal of aged out insulation will bolster indoor air quality by protecting you from these contaminants. Without professional insulation removal, your old insulation’s mold and pest problems will grow exponentially.

Our Process

Insulation wears down over the years, and as it breaks down, its thermal resistance decreases. This adds up to a home that isn’t providing you with the highest level of home comfort and costs you in unnecessarily high utility bills. Our team at Assured Insulation Solutions has a time-tested practice to remove your home’s insulation.

We use an industry-grade vacuum, one of the most powerful available, to ensure every bit of outdated insulation is removed from your home. We use specialized bags to dispose of the old insulation in a dumpster, so you’ll never have to worry about it blowing around your yard. Afterward, our team is ready to install new insulation to keep your home comfortable, energy efficient, and free from the multitude of problems outdated insulation can cause.

Benefits of Insulation Removal

The benefits of insulation removal and replacement are numerous, including:

  • A healthier home, free of uninvited mold, odors, and animals.
  • Less wear and tear on HVAC systems.
  • Lower monthly utility bills.
  • Lower carbon footprint.
  • Increased home resale value.

Get Started
  • I had a family of raccoons in my attic that took over 3 months to
    get rid of them. The resulting mess required all the existing
    insulation had to be removed (combination blown in and rolled
    fiberglass on top of it. Also had 2 attic fans that needed to be
    replaced/removed, as well as the initial hole that was torn into the
    roof to get in by the mama raccoon. I hired Assured Insulation
    based on not only cost, but they are a preferred contractor of the
    EnergySmart Nicor rebate program. Other contractors I received
    a cost estimate from didn't even mention anything about rebates.
    This wasn't the usual mail in your form and 10­12 weeks later you
    receive a check. Assured did all the work and I received the max
    rebate right off the top of the bill. I did nothing, Assured Insulation
    did everything. As far as the work that was done. They did a
    superb job, could not have asked for a better job. Ed repaired the
    roof hole, removed 1 attic fan and replaced another as well as
    redirected the vent from my bathroom fan up thru the roof
    (building code) vs to the soffit. Initially, he told me they may have
    to do that, but there were no hundreds of dollars of add-ons, $50
    over their original bid and that included a special spray that the
    other contractors had said they use because of the raccoons. Able
    and the rest of the crew, who worked together very well as a
    team and were very courteous and considerate of us. They
    performed leakage tests before starting work and after
    completion (as part of their requirements for the rebates, not
    mine).  They removed all the existing insulation, including what
    the raccoons left behind.  Sealed all the ceiling fixtures and
    between walls (tagged them as well so they can be found after
    insulation was blown in). Sprayed the special Microban to
    neutralize ceilings below from the critters presence. ? Installed
    baffles to allow attic to breathe and allow heat to rise over the
    insulation.  Sealed & filled in areas that leak (Kitchen soffits
    open and exposed, bathroom). Built up areas that were below
    the 16" height of the insulation, added additional foam backing to
    entrance doors to the attic(s) And lastly, if I hadn't been there
    during the process and came home, well you would barely know
    that anyone even showed up. They removed all remnants of new
    or old insulation, cleaned the area leading to the attics, the
    hallways, floors, walls. just a terrific, terrific job, well beyond my
    expectations. I would whole heartedly recommend Assured
    Insulation Solutions to anyone. I don't do testimonials like this for
    work, but I can't say enough about the job they did.
