It’s no secret that home improvements can be expensive, and when it comes to insulation, it’s likely you’ll have an old product that needs to be safely removed and disposed of, before anything new can be installed in your property.
However, it really is best to get an expert to do the job for you, rather than to give it a go yourself… after all, your home’s security and comfort against the elements outside should never be compromised.
The cost to install insulation in ceiling areas is probably less than you think – and there is a way to cheat the system and cover the cost of it too!
Protecting Against Airborne Pollutants
There are no toxins in spray foam, and it won’t ‘off-gas’ or break down to release harmful contaminants into the air like older, more traditional insulation products.
Instead, the seal will keep out pollutants and allergens. This will leave the air in your home cleaner and fresher, without pollen, car fumes or smoke from the outside coming in.
Protecting Against Pests
With no little gaps to wriggle through, and no yummy insulation to eat, pests such as mice, rats and insects, will no longer be able to find their way in to your home.
The need for additional pest prevention measures will be negated, and there will no longer be any worry about hygiene.
Keeping Noise Out… And In
Whilst not quite the professional soundproofing pads you’ll have seen in cinemas and recording studios, lab testing has shown spray foam insulation blocks up to 40% of noise in the area insulated.
This means that not only can you prevent car horns, aeroplane noise and conversations coming in from outside, you’ll also find your music and chats don’t travel any further than they need to.
The soundproofing properties of foam enhance your quality of living considerably. Besides, who can put a price on a happy, comfy, quiet life? That’s something we all deserve.
