Can Mice Eat through Spray Foam Insulation?

Insulation materials are used to effectively seal small cracks and holes in the cavities of our house’s walls, ceilings, basements, and even attics. Spray foam is one of these materials that have a high rate of success keeping hot air from flowing freely through these small openings. However, other than being used as an insulating material, spray foam is also used as a way to block out small animals or insects from entering the houses e.g. mice. But how effective is this method? Can mice eat through spray foam?

Effects of Spray Foam Insulation Materials Against Animals

Spray Foam Insulation Materials against Animals

Spray foam insulation material is known to be a health hazard when ingested. If animals were able to ingest the liquid form of the spray foam material, the product will expand and harden inside their bodies, which would be dangerous. This is why it is required that you and your pets should not be within the vicinity when the product is being applied. If the product is ingested when it is already in its hardened state, the isocyanate chemical’s characteristic of being toxic will cause sickness to the one that ingested the product.

This is why people must ensure that the place is thoroughly cleaned after the application process to avoid their children and pets from finding any foam material lying on the ground and chewing on it. And so, we can safely say that it won’t turn out to be very good for mice if they eat through spray foam, even though they surely can.

However, although spray foam material is known to withstand heat and moisture, it cannot withstand physical pressure that may rip it apart. Animals, most especially mice, are known to use their sharp claws to easily rip apart any type of foam material. Always add a layer of reinforcement to your spray foam insulation material to keep it protected from any kind of animal.
