reuse blown insulation

You can rent a big vacuum that will get it out. I have never heard of reuse so not sure about that.

reuse blown insulation

I've sucked it out with a shop vac, bagged it and reused it. It doesn't take much to fill even a good sized shop vac though, so be prepared for a long day............... and a lot of bags.
