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.

Testimonials

  • Sealtite put foam insulation in a tool shed we built and the house within the tool shed. Plus they put blown insulation in the ceiling of the shed portion. We are very pleased with the service the provided. They were prompt, neat and tidy…cleaned up everything, were very cordial and efficient. Once they were gone, we would not have known they were there! We have already suggested their service to others!

  • Sealtite did an A+ job insulating our Quonset shop. They came in and set everything nice and neat. They were timely, courteous, honest, hard-working … all for a reasonable price. They went above and beyond! Now they have completed three projects for us, and we have already referred them to others!

  • Sealtite did two projects for us – insulating our sun room and our farm shop. We were very pleased with their quality of service. They were prompt on returning our calls and emails and were very good at educating us on the various products and options we had…giving us choices. Very thorough and patient. Thank you!

  • We are very pleased with the job Sealtite did for us. They insulated our upstairs with open-cell insulation and downstairs with closed-cell insulation and also put cellulose in the attic. Neat and efficient, they kept a consistent thickness in filling between the studs. We heard from experienced people after seeing the job completed that it was a superior finished product when compared to others.
