Is Spray Foam Insulation Rodent Proof?

About Icynene

Do you want to stop pesky mice and rats creeping their way into your home? There are definitely methods of reducing rodent infestations, a critical one being the insulation type you use.

Spray foam insulation is completely rodent proof due to the air tight barrier it creates, but also because it does not act as a breeding ground or source of food. This makes spray foam insulation the number one choice for mice or rat proofing your home.

How does spray foam insulation differ from other insulation methods?

Spray foam insulation has provided revolutionary solutions for stopping mice, rats and other rodents in their tracks. Traditional and less modern forms of insulation, such as fibreglass and polystyrene, do not possess these rodent proof properties.

Unlike Icynene® spray foam, traditional forms of insulation do not provide an airtight coverage, leaving gaps large enough for rodents to sneak through. As well as this, fibreglass and polystyrene act as a food source for pests. The ability for mice and rats to nibble through can damage these traditional insulation materials, meaning its insulating properties will gradually worsen over time. This means that heat loss and consequently energy bills will be on the increase!

Why choose spray foam insulation for preventing rodents?

Mass Foam Systems use Icynene® spray foam for all of our insulation projects, which is a completely mouse, rat and rodent proof expanding spray foam insulation.

Spray foam insulation is rodent proof because it is airtight from the word go, but more importantly it remains this way for years to come.
