When doing a major remodeling job there are always additional jobs that need to be done. These can be very time consuming, and can delay your progress.
I’m remodeling a bath and laundry room. Both the plumber and the electrician need access to the ceiling which was full of blown-in insulation. Removing insulation by hand is a big and messy job. In addition, it is important to protect your lungs as there are usually many irritating little fibers.
I used a professional insulator who had the right tool to do the job quickly and safely. He had a large speciality vacuum on his truck and about 100 feet of vacuum hose. The vacuum attached to a huge specially made bag that was permeable, which allowed the bag to be filled as full as possible. The job was done in an hour, which is about one-forth the time it would have taken to do manually. See photos below.
