Removal of polystyrene chips in loft?


Mrs fix it

Likes # 0

We are having free loft insulation done as part of government energy saving drive with EDF energy. The surveyor (sub contractor SIG Energy Management)said that they would put the top up loft insulation material over the top of existing polystyrene chips (been there since house built in 70's I think). Asked him about safety aspect after reading on-line there are issues with these chips. He said he hadn't heard of this. Customer Services advisor at SIG said she thought they should be removed too but they don't provide the service so did I want to cancel or I could remove them myself. Any thoughts as to how I go about this?

I believe they are very good when dug in to the soil of your garden. They keep the soil warm, and possibly encourage worms to prosper etc. You may even get snowdrops coming up even earlier than they do now.
