Can Mold Grow On Spray Foam Insulation?

Spray foam insulation is one of the most effective types of insulation materials. But with the benefits it may give to a house, people also have some concerns too. People are concerned if spray foam insulation gets affected by molds. The formation of mold and mildew in other forms of insulation materials is one of the biggest issues homeowners have.

Spray Foam Insulation and Its Effectiveness Against Mold

Spray Foam Insulation and Its Effectiveness against Mold

Seeing that some of the common insulation materials cannot properly keep out molds from ruining the living conditions in a house, one might get curious about the type of insulation material that can be used for a house that is regularly affected by rains. Spray foam insulation is one of the best answers to this concern.

Spray polyurethane foam is known to be a very effective insulation material while also having a composition that prevents the absorption and entry of water or moisture into a house. Below are some of the important things you should know about spray foam insulation and its effectiveness against molds:

  • Spray foam insulation is composed of chemicals. Isocyanate is one of its chemicals and is known to be toxic. It can be lethal if inhaled or ingested.
  • After the spray foam insulation material has been sprayed on the wall cavities, the foam produced will expand and harden over time. This is why it is an excellent insulation material since it is very effective in sealing even the tiniest cracks or spaces found on walls and other areas of the house.
  • As an insulation material, it prevents hot air from flowing through to areas that are affected by lower temperatures. This ensures that any of your HVAC systems will be able to work optimally, which helps in saving energy.
  • The cell composition from spray foam material makes it impossible for water or moisture to penetrate. The spray foam insulation material does not absorb water or moisture. Molds are not able to form since there is no moisture on the material. Also, having a non-biodegradable composition, molds have nothing to eat through, which would not make them survive.
