Member Company representatives have between them a total of more
than 45 years experience in ceiling dust removal and more than 55
years in installation of safe insulation products.
|ADRA advises that given
today’s current fuel prices and where there is relatively easy access to
the job the average cost to vacuum a dust-only ceiling space is
approximately $10 per m2 using WORKCOVER specified HEPA filtered equipment
by trained staff. The $10 per m2 is for a building of
approximately 100m2 and smaller might have a larger charge
whereas larger would be less per m2.
Difficult entry and trussed
low pitched roofs, removal of rubble and removal of old insulation, both
batts and loose fill would involve extra cost. In cases of small areas,
expect there to be a minimum job price.
response to a letter from
The LEAD Group Kevin Keefe, Home Energy Branch, federal Department of
the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts (DEWHA), stated in
[Energy Efficient Homes - insulation rebate] Package does not exclude the
simple vacuuming up of residual debris, such as dust and leaf litter in
the ceiling space. However the maximum assistance under the package is
$1,600* for homeowners and $1,000 for landlords/renters..."
rebate was reduced to $1,200 on 1st November 2009 and suspended on 19th
February 2010, with a replacement program to be brought in
by 1st June 2010 announced by the then minister in charge, Peter Garrett.
Greg Combet, the minister in charge of cleaning up the scheme, confirmed on
22nd April 2010 that the rebate scheme that was due to resume on June
1 would now not proceed because of safety concerns.]
