Moisture Control & Spray Foam Insulation
Mould growth can occur when warm moist indoor air penetrates the building assembly via cracks and crevices. When this moist air comes into contact with a cool surface, it condenses and could remain there, leading to mould, mildew and structural weakness. Better moisture control can be achieved with Icynene insulation since it expands to fill the cavity, creating an air-tight seal to eliminate gaps and cracks where airborne moisture can penetrate.
Most moisture that enters your home is airborne and can condense on surfaces within your home.
Traditional insulations can absorb and retain water and provide a food source for mold encouraging mold growth. An insulation and air barrier system, like Icynene contributes to moisture management and is not considered a food source for mold or insects.
