Vacuum Removal And Earth Wool Insulation Install

The Insulation Guru Brisbane undertook a substantial project on Quirk St in September 2023. The old insulation removal and deep clean task was an essential initiative to ensure the safety and energy efficiency of homes in the area.

The project involved a meticulous process, beginning with the careful removal of old insulation. This step was crucial as older insulation can often contain harmful materials like asbestos, which require professional handling for safe disposal. The Insulation Guru Brisbane team, equipped with the necessary protective gear and tools, ensured that all old insulation was removed without causing any harm to the surrounding environment or the home's occupants.

Following the insulation removal, a thorough deep cleaning of the attic space was carried out. This step is often overlooked but is vital to remove any residual debris, dust, or potential allergens left behind from the old insulation. The deep cleaning process ensures a clean slate for the installation of new insulation and helps to improve overall indoor air quality.Once the old insulation was safely removed and the area was thoroughly cleaned, the team then installed new, energy-efficient insulation. The new insulation not only helps to keep the home warm in winter and cool in summer but also contributes to reducing energy costs and carbon footprint.The Quirk St project is just one example of the diligent work performed by the Insulation Guru Brisbane. Their commitment to providing professional and reliable insulation services has made them a trusted name in the industry and a go-to choice for residents in Brisbane and beyond.



In Australia, various types of dangerous insulation are removed, particularly those containing asbestos. Some types that might be present in the roofs of old houses in Brisbane include:


  1. Chrysotile (White Asbestos) Insulation: This is the most commonly used type of asbestos and can be found in roofs, ceilings, walls, and floors of homes and businesses.

  2. Amosite (Brown Asbestos) Insulation: This type of asbestos was often used in cement sheets and pipe insulation. It’s also found in ceiling tiles and thermal insulation products.

  3. Crocidolite (Blue Asbestos) Insulation: Known for its excellent resistance to heat, this type of asbestos was commonly used in steam engines, pipe insulation, and spray-on coatings.

  4. Loose-fill Asbestos Insulation: This is one of the most dangerous forms of asbestos because it’s made up of loose fibers that can easily become airborne if disturbed. It was commonly used as an insulating material in attics and wall cavities.

  5. Friable Asbestos Products: These are materials that, when dry, can be easily crumbled or powdered by hand pressure. This could include certain types of insulation, as well as other products like sprayed coatings, insulation board, and certain types of paper and felt.

Please note that while these types of insulation may have been used in the past, the use of all types of asbestos has been banned in Australia since December 31, 2003. If you suspect any of these materials in your home, it’s important to contact a professional for safe removal and disposal.
