1st Choice Pest Control specializes in finding pests that would love to make your home their home. Insects and rodents tend to seek out warm, damp places they can burrow and build homes, looking for weak spots in home infrastructure to make their way indoors. These pests may move in over the winter, but they make long-term investments throughout the house, generating nests and laying eggs. If as a homeowner you want to be certain that your house is properly protected, you need to ensure that you are making the best choices for selecting quality insulation to reduce the risk of unwanted house guests.
When it comes to home insulation, there are a variety of products that may be present in a house's infrastructure. Older homes, those built before 1980, tend to be outfitted with materials like vermiculite, fiberglass and other outdated insulation products. These are not as effective for maintaining pest control or heating and cooling management as more modern insulation materials, thereby making it even more difficult for homeowners to get positive outcomes from their housing choices. In older houses, insulation can even act as a food source for the bugs. Some structures are insulated with substances like cotton or paper, thereby reducing the ability for buildings to keep in the heat or push out bugs. Spray foam insulation is an ideal solution, as there's no empty space in the house's walls where insects can get inside or make a nest. Spray foam insulation is not considered a food source, so there's nothing for pests to chew on.
Pest can also contribute to poor indoor air quality and health. They can carry a variety of diseases, so any sting or bite could pose a serious problem to residents. Children are particularly susceptible to these ailments, thereby making upgrades necessary when it comes to interior insulation. Most Americans spend up to 90 percent of their time indoors, so improving interior conditions and keeping out pests is essential to a happy, healthy home environment. Reducing respiratory ailments and improving the integrity of a building is much easier with the addition of spray foam insulation, so talk to 1st Choice Pest Control today about how to best improve and safeguard your home.
Our policy is, if you don’t want overspray on it, it must be covered or removed from the space. Keep in mind, our sales people consider all of this during the bidding process. If there is anything you can remove from the building in advance of the project, it can save you money. This also guarantees your things are moved and stored just the way you want. Building components that cannot be removed, such as pre-finished floors, can increase the installation cost because they must be protected.
R-value describes the thermal resistance to heat flow by an insulation product. The high R-value foam insulation makes spray polyurethane foam (SPF) more effective at reducing air leakages than any other insulation. Closed cell polyurethane foam insulates 50% better than traditional fiber glass and cellulose insulations. (SPF) can reduce 40% of the homes energy lost through air infiltration and exfiltration. The higher the R-Value of an insulation product the more effective the insulation. After it’s sprayed, spray foam expands 30-100 times more than its original volume.
Polyurethane spray foam also is a vapor barrier that protects buildings against moisture. This prevents the occurrence of mold and mildew. It can therefore be used for outdoor applications as well as indoor applications. Its strong and solid structure adds structural support. Spray foam is also used to reduce noise in addition to heat and moisture control. It reduces the transfer of air borne sound thus acting like a sound barrier through doors, walls or floors. It also improves the air quality by sealing out allergens.
Spray foam is durable, long lasting, and cost effective. Once you have installed spray foam insulation you will do it once it may be a bit more expensive than the traditional cellulose and fiber glass insulation but when compare to the energy savings the investment n spray foam makes economic sense. Homes treated with foam insulation more often than not qualify for federal tax deductions in the US.
Your home will also benefit from a lifetime of:
Reduces drafts and increases comfort.
Helps maintain a comfortable, constant, temperature throughout the building, from room to room and floor to floor.
Assists in improving indoor air quality.
Reduces the infiltration of outside air pollutants and soil gases. SPF can reduce moisture condensation and mold growth within the building walls and roof.
Excellent insulation efficiency of SPF can reduce heating and cooling usage dramatically.
HVAC equipment can be down-sized, thereby reducing construction costs.
SPF will not sag or settle. SPF can eliminate the need for separate housewrap and vapor retarders.
Helps conserve energy, reducing CO2 emissions.
Contributes LEED credits for sustainable, green construction. SPF can help reduce structural damage caused by high winds. SPF contains no formaldehyde or ozone depleting substances.
