Spray foam is a mixture of liquid and chemical ingredients that react to produce foam to use as insulation. Spray foam can expand to over 30% of its original size and can help solve a variety of problems in your home.
As the liquid and chemical ingredients react to produce foam, the technicians then apply the insulation to walls, attics, basements, and crawl spaces.
Spray foam insulation is safe and effective when installed properly. If the homeowner is fume sensitive, we do recommend they leave the home once the insulating process has been started and for a period of about 24 hours after the job has been complete. If there is proper ventilation, the homeowners could reenter the home about 3-4 hours after installing the insulation.
We will be wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to prevent breathing any particles. In some cases, we will use equipment to ventilate the space.
What’s the difference between Spray Foam, Cellulose and Fiberglass Insulation?
Spray Foam – Spray foam is a mixture of liquid and chemical ingredients that react to produce foam used as insulation. It expands and hardens quickly, and is able to fill small gaps and cracks. Unlike cellulose and fiberglass, spray foam insulation never loses its shape. After it hardens, it doesn’t compress, sag or settle.
Because spray foam insulation can fill small gaps and cracks, it’s also a great tool for controlling air infiltration – meaning air can’t leak in or leak out.
Cellulose – Cellulose is a loose-fill product composed of 80% recycled newspaper and 20% fire retardant chemicals. This type of insulation is blown into spaces and can fill various shapes and sizes of spaces.
Fiberglass – Fiberglass is the most common insulation for residential properties. It’s made up of multiple layers of spun glass fibers and is pre-cut to standard sizes to fit between ceiling joists and framing studs within walls.
