How To Prepare For Insulation
At RC Spray Foam, we understand the importance of reliability when it comes to spray foam insulation. The thought of people you are unfamiliar with having to enter your comfort setting to make repairs is enough to make homeowners deter them, and this is why we treat your house as our own, by offering the quality service it deserves. We will ask for a few things to be prepared to practically guarantee that the insulation process goes on without any hitches.
When the insulations involve the attic, we need a clear path to the entrance. We understand that there are different routes to get to the attic depending on the house design. If the attic has its access in the closet, we ask that all clothes be temporarily kept safely away from the area for ease of access. Valuables and jewelry are also vulnerable to getting stained and therefore we would need to have them as far away from the entrance area as possible. If the attic is used as a storage facility, we ask that all the merchandise be kept in another location temporarily before our arrival. Any form of pet droppings and other forms of waste should be cleared from the working area for the best job.
Exterior walls and headers require a 5ft path from the surfaces or walls being insulated. Any valuables and property within this range must be taken away from the path. We ask for the removal of anything that may be hanging on the exterior walls to be insulated prior to our arrival. The insulation process tends to be messy and dusty, so any valuables around should be taken away.
A clear path of entrance is also needed when knee walls need to be insulated. Any rubbish that is subject to hinder the workflow around the knee walls should be eradicated prior to our arrival so that the insulation process is flawless.
BASEMENT WALLS AND HEADERS
For the insulation of basement walls and headers to be completely successful, there also has to be a 5ft path from the walls being insulated. This means that any obstacles in and around the path should be cleared early enough to avoid any setbacks during the day of insulation
CRAWLSPACE AND HEADERS
When adding insulation to crawlspaces and headers, the path that leads up to the crawlspace also needs to be clear. The path may be blocked by debris and old insulation. If this is the case, we recommend getting the eco platinum package. The access door to the crawlspace must be fully functional so that we are able to spray and seal the back of the hatch. We kindly ask that any presence of pet droppings and other forms of dirt in the yard be cleaned up to facilitate a proper working area.
The paths leading to the exposed floor are usually subject to a lot of debris. We ask that this debris is cleaned up before the insulation process, to create a clear path for a nice job to be done.
Before insulation of the under slab, the surface must be completely dry. This can be achieved by placing a drainage material such as a stone on the ground. Proper preparation is key if we are to achieve great results when insulating your home or commercial building. Ready Spray Foam makes sure that the area to be insulated is prepared before commencing work.
