Cavity Wall Insulation Removal
Some properties have cavity wall insulation which doesn’t allow the building to breath, this then doesn’t give the property good airflow to circulate. This can cause damp issues in some homes. There are several types of cavity wall insulation – 1) white wool 2) polystyrene balls 3) rock wool.
The team at Paul’s Plastering use an optic camera which can be inserted into the cavity of the walls, by using this camera we can deduce if the cavity wall insulation needs to be removed. If the insulation does need to be removed, the team use a compressor to loosen the insulation, we then suck out any loose fragments. After cleaning out the cavity, we can allow the property to breath as its meant to for proper ventilation. If a cavity is clogged it can cause condensation.
CAVITY WALL INSULATION REMOVAL
Inspection camera used to see what type of cavity wall insulation is used and how much insulation is in the cavity.
Compressor is used to loosen any insulation within the cavity, this makes the removal process easier. The compressor forces pressurised air to detach the insulation from the two walls.
Paul’s Plastering use a suction tool to suck out any loose insulation fragments. In this image you can see that the cavity wall insulation was a white wool, this can get damp and the damp cab be absorbed into both walls, this is called ‘bridging’.
