A common question we get here at Spray-On Foam & Coatings has to do with spray foam insulation and air quality. Despite the overwhelming safety and energy efficiency of spray foam insulation, many business owners are still unfamiliar with the product. Thus, they’re naturally concerned about how it affects the quality of the air in their facilities. Well, it’s time to put those concerns to bed.
Our Spray-Foam Insulation Process
Our process includes a combination of two liquid components. We then spray the mixture into open wall spaces, as well as onto ceiling surfaces and cathedral ceilings. The mixture expands like magic, eliminating gaps with an airtight and watertight seal.
When we install spray foam insulation in your commercial property, you can rest assured that our products contain no blowing agents. There are no CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons) or HCFC’s (hydrochlorofluorocarbons) in our light density products. They also don’t contain any formaldehyde.
There is some minor off-gassing created during the process. However, we always make sure to adequately ventilate the space. And in any case, once the foam cures and sets (hardens), which happens within seconds, there is no more off-gassing.
Thus, once the foam cures, you’ll never again have to worry about the quality of the air inside the insulated space. There will be no air pollutants to worry about!
Our expert insulation installers are well-protected during the process. They all wear PPE (personal protective equipment) and focus much of their efforts on attaining proper ventilation.
Spray-foam insulation is truly lifetime insulation for your business. Our clients have often remarked to us how amazed they are by the immediate difference in their energy bills. That’s because spray foam insulation is the best type of business insulation.
