How can insulation have a positive effect on my allergies?

A lot of people think of insulation as something that is just installed in order to prevent heat loss or heat gain in their homes or buildings. In fact, if you Google “What is home insulation?”, the only thing you will read about on the first page is the fact that it prevents heat loss and heat gain. But, the fact of the matter is that insulation does so much more, not only for your home, but for your health as well. 

First things first, if your home lacks insulation or needs to have it’s insulation updated, you are exposing yourself and everyone in your home to all types of allergens that can impact your health. From pollen to insects and critters, even mold and mildew, all of these things can easily enter your home and turn it into an allergy nightmare! The good news is that by having the proper insulation, you can avoid all of these potential triggers. 

What type of insulation is best for allergies?

When it comes to an insulation keeping you safe from allergens, spray foam is the way to go, and there are a number of reasons why. Not only does spray foam insulation have a long life span, but it is eco-friendly as well.  Next, spray foam creates a virtually impenetrable barrier on the inside of your home. This barrier minimizes the amount of airflow carrying allergens into your household through any types of small cracks and holes. It also prevents any sort of bugs and critters from being able to enter your home.There are certain types of spray foams that minimize the risk of mold and mildew from growing inside your home. Closed-Foam spray foam works as a vapor barrier in your home and using other types of insulation could allow vapor to build in your home which can ultimately allow mold and mildew to build up.

If your home is in need of new insulation or you would like to make sure that your home is allergen safe, make an upgrade to spray foam using Geo-Insulation. Don’t risk your health. Call Geo-Insulation today: 210-848-5658
