Under Floor clearance
The under-floor install requires the installers to lie on their backs to enable spray to floor surface and joists with minimum requirement of 50cm/ half a meter.
There is No magic wand / lance / remote controlled robot that can get to all areas.
Areas less than 50cm to a degree, can often still be accessed via digging trench or similar, though extra time and effort required varies which will attract extra labour hourly charge ups.
Some customers are concerned regarding wiring and plumbing being compromised by foam. Rest assured, plumbing and wiring by code are always located at or around the edge of joists of 90mm and foam comes to 75mm. Junction boxes if present can be sealed and identified for future electrician inspection work.
Sub Floor warning for older homes
Please be mindful that in the event there may be large cracks in floor cavities which we cannot physically see, we take no responsibility for any contamination that may result from liquid material breaching these areas into living spaces. As the home owner, you would be the best judge of where these areas may exist or where creaky spots are so if you can identify these areas, we are more than willing the tape seal them prior to installation commencement.
In the scheme of things, if this occurs, it is seen by ALL people that the Spray Foam process is in fact actually doing its function and totally Air Sealing every millimetre, nook and cranny of your home.
Our biggest fear is that if it breached a very large hole and there was say….a plasma TV / antique furniture or an item of great sentimental / financial value was contaminated….though it would not ruin anything, it may spoil your day and experience.
The soft, white flexible little bubbles of foam are easily removed with finger tips/nails or in crevices by way of a scraper and depending on the tint/shade/colour of the wood stain, may leave a light /cloudy residue on floor that the home owner can steel wool scour back excess and at worst, apply a coating of the matching stain over to blend with the surrounding.
