Why should I engage a specialist cavity wall insulation extraction firm to remove the insulation?

January 30, 2017

If your property is damp and this is due to faulty or incorrectly retro-fitted cavity wall insulation (CWI) then it needs to be removed as soon as possible.


Our advice is that if you have a 25year guarantee from the Cavity Insulation Guarantee Association (CIGA) then you should contact them and request that they remove the insulation. Be aware that this may be a lengthy process.


The longer the insulation is left in your property the greater amount of damp will build up. This will lead to gradual degrading of the construction of the property and potential health issues for those living in a damp environment.


There are many cases where it simply isn’t possible to wait for CIGA: either you do not have a guarantee, the installation was more than 25years ago, your property is deteriorating, you are wishing to sell your home or your heath is suffering. In these situations then you need a CWI extraction service.


There are many firms offering a CWI extraction service, almost all are firms that also carry out cavity wall insulation installation, or used to. This should cause alarm bells and caution as any firm associated with the retro fit CWI industry is likely to employ the same staff that were responsible for installing your insulation wrongly in the first place.
