Spray Foam Insulation Helps Reduce Moisture and Mold

3. Spray Foam Insulation Helps Reduce Moisture and Mold

In order to reproduce, molds need tiny spores. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods and there’s no practical way to remove them in the indoor environments except when you contain moisture through sealing your home effectively. Most homeowners today insulate their homes to not only bar air from coming in and out but to protect it from elements like molds, rodents, moisture and dust.

When there is so much moisture or when water accumulates indoors, mold growth will often take place especially when moisture problems remain undiscovered or not addressed. In order to prevent moisture inside your home, spray foam insulation should be installed. While there are a number of insulation materials available today, spray foam insulation is one of the best insulation types since its sturdy, crawls into spaces and can last for a lifetime.

When warm air comes in contact with cool surfaces, it condenses and stays there. This could result to mold growth, mildew build up and structural weakness for your home or building. Spray foam insulation minimizes moisture-related problems caused by random air leakage because it fills all the cracks and crevices where air enters.

Spray foam insulation can effectively seal roofs and other spaces where condensation is more likely. With Spray foam insulation, you can’t only save money with energy cost but maintain the integrity of your home because molds and other outside elements can’t possibly thrive inside.

How Does Spray Foam Insulation Prevent Mold?

Most people realize that moisture and mold can cause health problems and serious damage in your house. Based on the New York Times, mold can result in health problems that include:

Sneezing & coughing
Allergic reactions
Irreversible lung damage

Obviously, nobody wants to risk their health, or that of family members. What’s worse is that if your home goes unprotected against mold for too long, the removal process can cost thousands of dollars. You don’t even have to see the mold growing to be affected by it.
Because of the excellent air sealing properties of spray foam insulation, moisture is less likely to enter your home. This reduces the risk of mold, as well as the risks of rot and structural damage that accompany water infiltration.

  • My tenants always complained about the noise and their inconvenience during winter. So, during the summer, in order to address their concern, I went out and search the internet for reliable people who will carry out the task -This was where I found Spray Foam Insulators. I cross-referenced them in order to be sure that they are for real. So, I hired them and they worked on 4-door apartment and true enough – these people are really committed. Now I know that all the good reviews I have read on them are real!

  • Spray Foam Insulators delivered an outstanding service. I had my house’s wall cavities foam-sprayed in preparation for the winter. On top of delivering a very clean job without leaving a single mess, the staff was courteous and educated me enough on the product that they used. Now, I know that the products doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals like CFCs and all. Kudos for a job well done!

  • In an attempt to be able to save more, I tried DIY spray foaming and simply followed some videos on how to do it online since they are (as I thought it was) very easy to follow. Problem was, I wasn’t so sure about the correct mixture so it left me with brittle texture foam which in the end, I had to remove. Luckily, my brother told me to try Spray Foam Insulators. I gave them a shot and was astonished at how my basement turned out. Had I known them first, I would have not thrown away my money trying to do it on my own. Thanks!

  • I had the entire house insulated by Spray Foam Insulators and I am so happy about the decision as well as choosing them. It is my first time working with them and I am really impressed about the output. It has been 3 months since they insulated the whole place and I can really say that the savings I get from my electric bill is really something that other people should know. Aside from the convenience that you get, you’ll have savings on top of that. I don’t really have a single hesitation in my mind recommending this company.

Being an advocate of green products, I am really pleased that these people does not only work on delivering an excellent job on carrying insulation projects but more so, on being aware of the environment impact that their product may cause. Had my small basement insulated and I can’t say anything except that it is better now during winter. On top of that, sound proofing is superb!
