What Problems Can Defective Cavity Wall Insulation Cause?

Defective cavity wall insulation can cause a multitude of problems that not only cause damp within your property, but can also pose a risk to health.

Poor Cavity Wall Installation

Unfortunately it is not unheard of for cavity wall insulation to be poorly installed. Poor installation of cavity wall insulation is often the culprit for causing damp issues and condensation problems within a property.

Wet Cavity Insulation

When cavity insulation becomes wet it loses its insulation properties. There are many reasons why insulation can get wet, ranging from flooding to permeable wall materials such as brickwork. Wet cavity wall insulation retains the moisture, causing damp within the affected areas of the home.

Release of toxic gases

Defective cavity wall insulation materials, such as Urea-formaldehyde, can decompose over time, releasing toxic toxic gasses into the air and therefore affects air quality within the property. Many forms of early foam insulation do not live up to today’s rigorous standards, so this type of cavity wall insulation is high risk for the release of toxic gasses. Nowadays there are far better standards and licences in place which determine the minimum quality of materials used for insulation purposes. In addition, modern insulation is guaranteed for 30 years through the Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency (CIGA) body.

How is Cavity Wall Insulation Removed?

Defective cavity wall insulation is removed using an industrial vacuum machine. The removal process begins at the base of the property, and then upwards, following the drilling pattern. We check all insulation has been successfully extracted. Finally, all waste material is bagged and disposed of in a responsible manner.

How Long Does Cavity Wall Insulation Removal Take?

Usually the extraction process takes two days to complete. This estimation is based on clearing cavity wall insulation from the average three-bedroom detached property.
