Wet spray cellulose insulation uses shredded plant fiber that has a fire retardant borate additive. The cellulose itself is sprayed into an open wall, ceiling or floor cavity with a mist of water which is enough to activate the glue in the specially formulated wet spray mixture.
Wet spray cellulose insulation in Worcester, MA has evolved from the need to achieve the air sealing benefits of spray foam insulation more cost-effectively. The wall cavity is sprayed full, starting from the bottom until the top is reached. An insulation specialist does the critical job of ensuring that there is the correct water mixture that will provide the inexpensive, high R-value when applied.
In experienced hands, the wet spray cellulose insulation combines the least cost of cellulose with the continuous thermal control and air seal of spray foam. In the hands of those who did not undergo proper and intensive training for this job, adding inappropriate loads of water to a building enclosure can lead to a large and costly disaster. For this reason, it is best that you hire only an insulation specialist to do the job for you from start to finish.
