Do you Understand the Risks of not Using a Vacuum to Remove Blown in Insulation?
If you’ve been removing insulation by hand, you’ve been putting yourself at great risk. For one thing, if you remove blown in insulation without a vacuum and you get a hole in your gloves, skin irritation, and itching will become a big issue for you. Doing it by hand is also much more physically demanding and you run the risk of hurting your back and/or other parts of your body.
But it’s not just your back and joints you need to worry about – it’s also your lungs. Removal by hand takes much longer and the release of tiny particles into the air could lead to breathing problems causing irritation and chest infections. If the insulation you’re removing is made of cellulose, it’s likely to have increased mould production in the attic which is yet another thing that can affect your lungs and impact your general health. If you’re working with silica or asbestos, breathing in those particles could lead to silicosis which is a long-term lung disease. This creates patches of hardened lung tissue that do not function properly, and it puts you at risk of a whole host of other health issues.
It’s not only the removal you must be cautious with, but also the storage of the insulation before safe disposal. If particles can escape the storage container, your whole workplace could be contaminated. Your customers are also expecting a safe and complete insulation removal, which is very difficult to do when removing insulation by hand.
