Interesting Facts about Cellulose Insulation:
- Contents = Recycled paper, corn starch binder, Magnesium Sulphate (used to stop forest fires), Boric Acid
- Characteristics = Fluffy, non-itchy, soft, looks like dryer lint
- Helps control mould, fungal and bacterial growth
- Provides flame retardancy and promotes char formation
- Moisture Management: Absorbant! If water gets in the walls the cellulose will absorb it and spread the moisture out and eventually dry
- Sound Suppression: It is densely packed in the walls and fills every small space by being blown in, which enables it to be a great sound barrier
