Spray foam insulation is a smart choice for insulating your home. Spray foam insulation keeps your home warm while it also protects your home from mold and mildew, insects and pests. It is also fire resistant, which just adds one more benefit.
When moisture gets into your home, mold can grow causing major health problems. Traditionally, home insulation does not combat moisture. However, spray foam insulation expands to fill all open spaces causing a seal and it will not chip and crack over time. This means it is a barrier against water and moisture. Water leaking into wall and floor cracks is the leading cause of mold in basements. With spray foam insulation, these cracks are filled and sealed.
Cracks in the insulation means air pockets. Insects and pests are attracted to these air pockets. Spray foam insulation fills all cracks and holes in your foundation walls and basement ceiling. Because these cracks are sealed, bugs cannot find a home in your walls.
Another advantage of spray foam insulation is that it is fire resistant. Having your ceilings, walls and crawl spaces insulated with spray foam protects you and your family from house fires that would traditionally travel through walls. Traditional insulation is not only flammable, but there are also air pockets around it. Spray foam is fire resistant and there are no air pockets to feed the fire.
