If you’ve just discovered your wall insulation isn’t what you hoped for and it needs to be removed, it can seem like the whole world is against you. But during this stressful time, it’s important that you keep calm and make sure that you think practically to ensure that you get it dealt with in the most effective way.
The first thing you will need to do is find a reputable company to undertake your extraction. Due to the problems with cavity wall insulation increasing, there are many companies promising to take care of your issues and make sure that you are left free from damp.
So how exactly do you make sure you employ the best person for the job?
Ask for recommendations
When employing someone to undertake such a large task, the first step is to do your research. Asking around friends and family or looking online is the best way to find a reputable firm. If someone has had a good experience, or even a bad one, they’ll be more than willing to let you know all about it.
Look for accreditations
Unless you work, or know someone who works in the business, certain accreditations may seem alien to you at first glance, but it is always recommended that you fully investigate whether a company holds any accreditations, what those are, and look into each one if you are unsure.
Speak to the company
In this digital world where people are used to buying online, talking to companies on the phone can seem old-fashioned. But when entrusting someone with the future of your home it is important that you speak to the company you are thinking of employing. Here you’ll be able to ask questions to put your mind at rest, all while providing you with a sense of the business to help you make a more informed decision.

All companies should be able to provide a quote upon request. Get this in writing before any work starts to ensure you’re not left out of pocket and still with insulation problems.
