What to Know About Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam insulations are effective for insulating surfaces. However, as explained in this video, one should know a couple of things before embarking on this process. Let’s take a look at some of the most important things to know.
The first and the most important thing is preparation. It is recommended that a person have the right materials and proper protective gear and cover surfaces before starting. Secondly, use the correct settings. The canisters, for instance, should be put between 75-85 degrees for optimum results, while the surface to be sprayed should be around 70 degrees. They should also ensure the tip of the hoses are checked for sensitivity and that the foam comes out from both components.
Another critical thing to note is that the user should not pull the trigger all the way while spraying. Doing so can cause too much pressure, resulting in a big mess. It is vital to start with just a quarter of a squeeze when the tank is full and increase slowly as the pressure in the tank goes down. Lastly, the user should know that spray foam insulation is very expensive. Therefore, unless necessary, it is advisable to use traditional insulation procedures for walls and roofs.
