Over the past couple days we were working in a mechanics shop in Los Angeles. The building was 5,800 square feet and the ceilings were 20 feet high. The building recently experienced a fire which mainly affected the insulation. The insulation was burned and crisp. Our job was to remove all the insulation and install new insulation.
Since the warehouse was still operational we needed to maneuver over cars and offices to reach the ceilings. In order to do so we commissioned the help of electric man lifts. We began the process by covering the floors and cars to catch all the burned debris and insulation. We then removed each piece of insulation by hand. After that there was a lot of ash we needed to cleanup, so we rolled up the flooring we put down earlier, swept, and vacuumed. It was then time to put up the new insulation. We installed R-30 FSK (Foil-Scrim-Kraft) insulation on the ceiling. The most important part of performing a job using any type of heavy duty equipment is safety. We completed the job without a glitch.
