Spray foam insulation for existing homes – What you must know

Spray foam insulation of a home is a great way to utilize your resource to keep the bills smaller, environment safer and your home and family better protected. As with everything else, there are some things that you must know when you decide to take this step.

Many people go into this too fast and do it by themselves or hire someone that is close to do this type of insulating without watching out for few things that the spray foam insulation brings with itself.

To do it right, you must make sure that you are using the right mixture of chemicals. These chemicals can cause all sorts of issues, if they are not mixed together in the proper way. While you might know someone that has done this on their own house and you saw a great result, not every home is the same, nor the conditions under which the foam is made under.

This is very important. Sometimes firms with little experience would mix the foam in improper way which could cause your house walls to start soaking and filling out the house with the bad smell. The reason for this is that if the mix is not by the book for the conditions under which the insulation is being made the foam could just never actually nor properly cure.

The professionals make sure that they do not spray the foam into some opening too much since the foam will expand, but if you add too much foam on too little space the foam could blow out the drywall or plaster that you have in your home.

When Airseal professionals are on the job they make sure that the foam is added in proper thickness and that it is also not added to the old and rotten areas before fixing those in order to have the foam expand properly without worries of it going through the weak wall.

There is one more thing that you should know and that is that it is not just enough to make a thin layer of the foam and then add another. It is that the mixture is different in hot, cold, wet and other circumstances that you can find yourself in while insulating your home.

If you follow all of these notes you can be safe that you are not mixing a deadly cocktail that would go after your family, but that you are actually creating a perfect insulation for your home that will in fact help you and your family to save your money on bills and lead a healthier life.
