Reducing the chance of a Spring Flood

Can your insulation play a role in helping to reduce the risk of flooding? Depending on where you live, as Spring edges closer, the possibility of your home flooding could be something that you need to think about. When large volumes of snow and ice melt in a short span of time, the ground can’t necessarily absorb it all at once. That means it will go wherever it can, and if your home – especially your basement – isn’t sealed in a way that rejects bulk water, you could end up with an expensive mess.

Traditional insulation can potentially absorb water as it enters your home, resulting in damp or waterlogged insulation that can become a breeding ground for mold. All of that, and it won’t necessarily prevent the water from actually getting into your home and destroying your property.

In contrast, aside from being a high performance insulating and air sealing material, rigid closed cell Icynene spray foam insulation can reject bulk water. In fact, FEMA recognizes closed cell spray foam insulation as a flood resistant material.
