Removing blown in insulation

twlkps76March 13, 2012

We are about to start a remodel that involves removing a large section of the ceiling which has blown in insulation above it. Is there an easy, clean method for removal?

I will be rewiring in the attic too and getting it out would make this nice.

Rent one of these. Or hire a contractor who uses one.

I've seen insulation companies use fiberglass snow
shovels & trash bags.
wheeling the vac worthy posted info for may
be difficult in attics without walkways.

and make sure bags are not overfilled so you can
get them out of the attic.

best of luck.
