Cavity Wall Extraction

Stop damp and mould and restore the health of your home.

What is cavity wall extraction?

Cavity wall extraction removes defective insulation from cavity walls. It’s needed when existing insulation is damaged, poorly installed, or causing damp or mould.

To remove it, air is blown into the cavity. It breaks down the material which gathers on the floor and is collected by removing bricks from the floor.
