Health Benefits Using Foam

Foam polyurethane does not produce fiberglass particles that float in the air and are distributed through a home’s heating and air conditioning system. This eliminate the health risk associated with breathing in tiny fibers or other foreign materials that may be dangerous, particularly for a family member with asthma.

For members of your family who are sensitive to allergens, like dust and mold, foam insulation is preferably because it doesn't introduce this source of irritation. The foam sticks to the area that it is meant to cover and remains there. Fiberglass may deteriorate over time, causing sagging or loose pieces that may be circulated thourgh your home's venting system.

Additional Features of Foam

Foam insulation is more water resistant than fiberglass insulation. Fiberglass actually absorbs water and in time becomes heavy and weighted down by it. This introduces the potential for mold growth and a messy clean-up to replace and sanitize the area where mold and other growth appears. Areas of the country that are prone to floods and hurricanes benefit more from the use of foam insulation in the home over fiberglass.

Foam insulation is fire resistant and acts as a fire retardant, reducing the spread of flames throughout the house in the event of fire. Foam also helps to reduce noise as it provides a total seal in hard-to-reach areas. This could be important to you if you reside near a busy thoroughfare or airport.
