GREENGUARD Gold Certified

 

This is a two-component system designed to fill and insulate large voids and surfaces. It has excellent adhesion properties that create a continuous air barrier. This also helps in the quality of the indoor air along with lowering your heating and cooling costs.  Our product is an Class 1(A) fire rated foam, this meets building requirements for insulation. When properly applied it reduces energy consumption, leaving your home or buildings to be certified in their respective energy designation. 

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. Spray foam insulation may be a bit more expensive than the traditional cellulose and fiber glass insulation, but when compared to the energy savings the investment in spray foam makes economic sense.

Sanitization

Before cleaning basements, crawlspaces and other storage areas, it is necessary to completely remove the existing rodent infestation first.  Once there is no more evidence of activity then you can begin cleaning these areas. Before cleaning the space, ventilate the area by opening the doors and windows for at least 30 minutes to allow fresh air to enter the area and to remove potentially contaminated air from the area. Use cross-ventilation and leave the area during the airing-out period.

When preparing and cleaning basements, crawlspaces and other storage areas:

  • Wear rubber, latex, or vinyl gloves when cleaning up urine, droppings, or nesting materials. Note that a dust mask may provide some protection against dust, molds, and insulation fibers, but does not protect against viruses.

  • Treat anything that has urine, droppings, and nesting materials with a household disinfectant prepared according to the label instructions for dilution and disinfection time. Soak well. This will inactivate any virus. Use a paper towel or rag to pick up the materials and dispose of them.

  • Remove the items and place them in an area that is well-ventilated and exposed to direct sunlight. 

  •  Some contaminated stored materials, such as clothing, books, etc. can be decontaminated, items that are no longer needed can be discarded.

  • Dispose of any cardboard boxes contaminated with urine or droppings. Plastic, glass, or metal containers can be disinfected by spraying them with solutions or disinfectant. 

  • Wash hands well with soap and warm water.

Our Policy 

Before service make sure to remove all items from the area or make sure items are covered and protected to prevent anything from getting damaged. 

Your home will also benefit from a lifetime of:

 

COMFORT:

  • Reduces drafts and increases comfort.

  • Helps maintain a comfortable, constant, temperature throughout the building, from room to room and floor to floor.

 

HEALTH:

  • 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.

 

VALUE:

  • 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 house-wrap and vapor retarders.

 

ENVIRONMENT:

  • 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.
