Mold is every homeowner’s worst nightmare. In addition to compromising your home’s structure, mold can also pose a serious health threat to you and your family. Insulation forms the first line of defense against mold, as it can help prevent water from entering your home. Here is how spray foam can help fight mold and common indoor air quality problems.
What is Spray Foam?
Spray foam is a polyurethane foam that has changed the way insulation works. Although it is installed in liquid form, the insulation quickly expands and dries, helping to fill in gaps. Furthermore, the spray foam itself can be changed and modified in order to fit a specific use.
How Does Spray Foam Fight Mold and Prevent Indoor Air Quality Problems?
Unlike conventional insulation, spray foam is much more effective in creating a seal. Spray foam, when applied properly, can help seal cracks, gaps, and other holes through which water can potentially flow. Mold growth requires very little moisture. Even a small drip through your roof can, over time, create the conditions necessary for mold growth. With spray foam, however, you can rest assured knowing that your home is protected from moisture. These same characteristics give spray foam the unique ability to protect your home from other indoor air pollutants. Pollutants and allergens like dust and pollen regularly enter our homes through cracks and through our ventilation systems. With spray foam, however, the tight seal between your home and the outdoors will protect you from allergens.
Proper insulation does more than just reduce your energy costs and improve your home’s comfort. Spray foam can help keep you and your family healthy. Mold and pollutants like dust and pollen can cause health problems ranging from simple allergic symptoms to more severe respiratory conditions.

With summer quickly approaching, families across the country are bracing themselves for hot temperatures and high cooling costs. Without the proper insulation, however, much of the money you spend on cooling actually ends up going to waste. Here is some information about the role your garage door plays in your home’s energy efficiency.
Why Are Garage Doors Important for Home Energy Efficiency?
Garage doors are large. In fact, they can take up virtually half of one side of your home. For this reason they have a large impact on your home’s temperature. A garage door that lacks insulation will let heat in during the summer and allow heat to escape during the winter. As the temperature of your garage continues to increase, the heat can gradually move into your home. This in turn forces you to work your air conditioning system even harder to stay cool and comfortable.
What Are the Benefits of Insulating Your Garage Door?
The benefits of insulating your garage door are numerous. Whether it’s hot or cold outdoors, insulation will help you keep your home comfortable without sky-high cooling and heating costs. For example, an insulated garage door will help prevent the sun’s heat from penetrating into your garage during the summer. This in turn will make your garage more comfortable and reduce cooling costs. An insulated garage door is particularly important if you frequently use your garage as a work space.
Don’t let high cooling costs ruin your summer. By investing in insulation for your garage door, you can regulate your garage’s temperature and reduce your cooling costs.
