What Are The Benefits Of Removing Spray Foam Insulation?

With winter cold snaps causing temperatures to plummet, residential and commercial buildings alike will rely heavily on their insulation to keep indoor temperatures up, reduce the reliance on central heating systems and protect the building from issues such as damp or condensation.

For many, this will involve the use of systems such as spray foam insulation, but whilst it can be easy to install, it can also be much more complex and difficult to remove, something that can at points be a necessity.

Here are some of the benefits of professional spray foam removal services.

Spray Foam Is Bad In Britain

Spray foam has quite a few issues which can affect air quality, most critically in the effect it has on humidity and increasing the risk of damp. It also gives off harmful fumes during installation and sometimes leaves harmful residue and dust when it decays.

Whilst this is a universal issue with the material, it is much more of a problem in the UK, due to famously changeable British weather. Whilst some more arid regions can typically get away with spray foam, in Britain, it does more harm than good.

Boost Property Prices

Spray foam if installed badly can cause damp in the loft cavity, which could potentially cause serious structural issues with the roof.

Mortgage providers and insurance brokers are aware of this and the appearance of spray foam can detrimentally affect property prices. Removing it and replacing it with a more conventional form of insulation can create immediate boosts to prices.

Boosts Indoor Air Quality

More people are concerned with sick building syndrome and the detrimental effects of poor air quality than ever before, and a common risk factor is poor airflow. 

Removing spray foam improves this and helps alleviate damp and black mould, both common issues associated with respiratory problems and sick building syndrome.
