Spray Foam Insulation Provides Better Indoor Air Quality

2. Spray Foam Insulation Provides Better Indoor Air Quality

A huge part of the air you breathe inside your home comes from crawl spaces. This air generally has a temperature that molds actually thrive in. Molds create a musty smell and release toxins that can be harmful for your family’s health. In order to prevent moisture and molds from thriving inside your home, you need to contain moisture and keep your house dry. Sealing crawl spaces, nooks, cracks and crevices with a high quality insulation material can protect your home from airborne allergens, pollution and molds making its indoor quality better.

Spray foam insulation prevents mold growth as it keeps the area dry and free from moisture. When there is no moisture, molds are unlikely to form as they need moisture in order to survive. Also, the components of spray foam insulation don’t become a source of food for molds so it’s very unlikely that they can thrive in a well insulated environment.

Your home’s “envelope” or shell protects you from outdoor environmental elements. Air can escape through cracks and gaps making your house feel uncomfortable and your energy bills expensive. Unfortunately, a typical residential home has large amounts of envelope air leakage through the windows, doors, and walls, as well as through attics and crawl spaces.

Because of this, the comfort and safety of dwellers are sacrificed not to mention the need to pay high electric bills because air-conditioning and heating systems need to work more in order to maintain the comfort level inside. In order to secure the safety of your family and maintain good air quality inside your home, experts suggest that you insulate it.

Spray foam insulation is the number one choice of homeowners today as it provides long lasting results and can successfully contain good air quality inside residential spaces.

Spray foam insulation provides a thermal envelope for homes. It is an excellent sealing agent that not only bars air from coming in and out but also bars dust, pollens and harmful household mold and mildew.

Because of this, you and your family are given a cleaner environment, free from harmful emissions that can cause allergies and diseases.
Spray foam insulation can provide life saving benefits by providing a cleaner air quality in your home by creating an air tight barrier that reduces moisture infiltration, mold and mildew growth, pollutants and indoor allergens.

To effectively reduce moisture, spray foam insulation can be applied to exterior foundation walls, and under slabs. This provides a thermal protection as well as a moisture barrier to your building without taking up useable space.

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.
