Spray Foam Insulation: A Termite’s Dream

Breathing is a basic act for living things. What you don’t know though, is that your house needs to breathe too! What am I talking about? Air circulation, of course! Spray foam insulation has become very popular in the home-building business recently, but it can be detrimental to the health of your home.

When spray foam insulation is installed, it covers the building materials so your pest control technician cannot perform a thorough inspection when searching for evidence of wood-destroying organisms. These pesky pests may also eat through your insulation! Don’t damage your home or void your termite warranty by installing spray foam insulation. If you have any questions about how your home can be affected by using this product, give Preferred Pest Control a call so we can help you decide the next best step in protecting your home.
