You want to be sure that your spray foam insulation installation process goes smoothly. This means that you are going to want to be sure that you hire licensed professionals who will be able to ensure that the insulation is installed correctly and that you have not wasted your money. However, your job as a homeowner is not done when you hire professionals. Here are some actions that you can take to make the spray foam insulation installation process go as smoothly as possible.
1. Have a List of All Vents and Electrical Outlets in Your Home
Before even starting the installation process, your spray foam insulation contractor is going to need to be sure that he or she seals all of your outlets and vents so that the insulation does not accidentally enter them and cause problems. Should the foam insulation get into the vents or outlets, any heated air that you push through the vents is not going to be able to travel as smoothly to other areas of your home and your electrical outlets might become dangerous to use and stop functioning altogether. If you have a comprehensive list of all of the electrical outlets and vents in your home, as well as their approximate location, you will be able to save your spray form insulation contractor from having to search your home for the outlets, saving a great deal of time.
2. Have Plans During Installation Times
You will likely be asked to leave your house while the insulation is being actively installed. This is an important rule to follow because some spray foam insulation materials are not safe to be around until they have been cured. Your contractor will tell you when he or she needs you to leave the house. During this time, make sure that you have everything that you need so that you do not need to come back to the house and halt the entire insulation installation process. Make plans that will keep you out of the house for an extended period of time, at least one hour more than you actually need to be gone in order to make sure that you don't interrupt the process if it takes a little bit longer.
If you have pets, make plans to put them in a daycare center for the day or take them with you while the insulation is being installed.
