Comprehensive UFFI Removal & Inspection Solutions

Addressing UFFI Concerns with Specialized Knowledge and Care

Quiet Culprit... UFFI's Impact Goes Beyond Insulation.

Decoding UFFI: What You Need to Know

Urea-formaldehyde foam insulation (UFFI) was a popular insulating material used in the 1970s and 1980s. It is an expanding foam that was injected into wall cavities to provide insulation. Due to health concerns related to formaldehyde emissions, its use has been significantly reduced.

The Hidden Dangers of UFFI in Homes

UFFI can be dangerous due to its potential to emit formaldehyde gas, especially shortly after installation. Over time, the risk diminishes, but deteriorating UFFI can still pose health risks, such as respiratory problems and skin irritation.

Detecting UFFI: Clues to Look for in Your Property

Homes built before the 1980s may have UFFI. Look for small holes in the exterior walls, often filled with silicone, which were used to inject the foam. For certainty, consider a professional inspection.

UFFI Presence: Assessing Its Impact on Home Value

While UFFI might not directly impact your home's value, disclosure is important. Buyers should be informed about its presence, as it may affect their decision or the home's marketability.

UFFI Prohibition: Behind the Ban

UFFI was banned in several regions due to the release of formaldehyde gas during and after installation, which posed health risks to occupants. The ban aimed to protect public health by eliminating exposure to harmful emissions.

Found UFFI? Here's Your Next Step

If you suspect UFFI in your home, consult with UFFI removal specialists like A&O Contracting Inc. Professional air quality testing can determine if formaldehyde levels are safe and if removal is necessary.

Does UFFI Have to Be Removed?

Removal is recommended if UFFI is deteriorating, exposed to moisture, or if fungal growth is present. In some cases, containment and environmental controls may be sufficient.

UFFI Removal Process

UFFI removal is similar to asbestos abatement, requiring specialized training and equipment. A&O Contracting Inc. follows strict safety protocols to safely remove UFFI and dispose of it according to regulations.

Post-UFFI Removal: Ensuring a Healthier Home

Once UFFI is removed, it's important to choose a safer, more efficient insulation alternative. A professional contractor can recommend and install suitable insulation to improve your home's energy efficiency and indoor air quality.
