Will spray foam prevent outside pollutants from entering my home?

Ah, Spray Polyurethane Foam. How do I appreciate thee? Let me count the ways.

This may sound silly but when you get the results of:

  • Lower energy costs
  • Seal cracks/voids with no settling or shrinking
  • Reduce noise
  • Provide greater climate comfort
  • Increase structural strength
  • Deter pests
  • Lower my carbon footprint

(Wow. That’s a lot of ways.)

But I appreciate you for yet another reason, my wonderful Spray Foam.

I also adore you for your ability to prevent pollutants and allergens from entering my home.

That’s right, my cleanest Spray Foam. I love how you create a continuous air barrier to trap pesky particles that I prefer never to invite inside.

I love how:

  • your beautiful mold-resistant properties fend off nasty little microbes that could lead to all kinds of health problems
  • you care about my every breath
  • you understand that the air quality in my home matters.

The professionals at Sunlight Contractors probably won’t recite you a sonnet about spray foam, but they will help you discover the many reasons to love it — including its ability to improve the air quality of your home.

Sunlight’s experts care about energy savings, comfort, AND air quality. That’s why they perform blower door tests before and after installing spray foam insulation in order to calculate how “air leaky” a home is and where it most needs insulation or sealing to improve energy-efficiency and minimize moisture/draft-related issues. It’s also why they perform ASHRAE 62.2 testing to assess your home’s air quality. And it’s why they provide you with written results of their findings.

Sunlight Contractors — What’s not to love?


Unlike other Louisiana spray foam contractors, Sunlight’s installers are highly trained and certified by third-party, professional organizations such as the LSLBC, SPFA, and BPI. Owner Corey Yates is a Master Spray Foam Installer with hundreds of hours of field experience in addition to certification through the Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance. Before you hire quasi-professionals, be sure to investigate their qualifications using the links to professional organizations provided in this post and compare them with Sunlight Contractors’ qualifications.
