In recent times, the number of ‘sick building syndrome’ affecting buildings and homes has increased. More often than not, we hear from our friends, family and colleagues that the poor indoor air quality within a particular building has had an effect on their health. A lack of concentration, losses in productivity and in graver circumstances the potential of becoming very ill can often be the symptoms people display when in a sick building environment.

If the increase in demand for such products wasn’t any indication, energy efficiency has become one of the most important features in a home for home buyers.

Recently, Icynene spray foam was featured on 'The Environment Report' with host Terry Bradshaw. Terry explains the long-term benefits and the environmental benefits for homeowners who adopt this modern insulation material in their own homes. This video is a great resource for architects and builders looking to help educate their clients about the benefits of investing in a modern insulation material such as Icynene.

Spring has arrived and the weather has begun to improve across the continent. With the change in weather, the probability of allergies is increased. Spray foam insulation can help have a significant impact on the indoor air quality of your client's homes or buildings.

By controlling air leakage and understanding moisture management, spray foam insulation is an economical and effective way to control ‘sick building syndrome’, improve indoor air quality and minimize the chance of mold growth. As discussed previously moisture can enter a building envelope through a variety of means including air leakage.
