Gutting walls with foam insulation
Here is another great video on removing sheetrock. On walls with foam insulation please call a professional to determine the type of insulation you have in your home. My usual rule of thumb is if it is squishy insulation, it is definitely open cell and has to go. If it is hard, it may be good to call a professional to confirm before closing the walls back up. Please note that if you do leave the closed cell insulation it will need to be mitigated just like any other affected area in your home. Please refer to our post on how to do that! Another helpful hint is on interior walls, once you have removed the tape seem, if you press carefully from the backside of the sheetrock to remove, you can get most sheets out in a whole piece and save yourself clean up time!
