Older homes: Making Them More Livable 101 pt.2

Living in an older home, you are presented with a unique set of issues that those who live in newer homes often don’t have to deal with. Those  drafts that you can’t figure out the source of or a basement that looks like an abandoned pre-war bunker or your child’s band practice out in the garage when you’re sitting in the living room.

And of course there’s the potential for mold and mildew.

Mold and mildew are no joke, in an older home, and obviously you need to be sure that any and all possible areas that may be infiltrated are thoroughly stripped and treated. 

What do you do to reduce the risk of it happening again? Icynene spray foam insulation can help by creating an air-barrier in your older home. This will help prevent moisture-laden air from entering the house, which can create a buildup of dampness. Additionally, Icynene’s closed cell foam is able to reject bulk water, it’s ideal for installing in flood-prone areas of the home.

Talk to a licensed Icynene spray foam insulation contractor in your area, to find out more.
