Our Mission Is Simple: Comfort, Affordability, Conservation
“Cellulose” comes from the French word “cellule.” This material is one of the first discovered for insulation and can contain cartons, corn cobs, cotton, hemp, paper, sawdust, and/or straw. These items are then treated with 20% non-toxic borate compounds to help improve resistance to fire, heat, insects, mildew, and mold.
This type of insulation is non-hazardous, leading to approval from most accrediting agencies and a reputation as an eco-friendly material. Cellulose is also one of the more affordable options on the market.
Cellulose fiber insulation boasts an R-value of 3.5 per inch, meaning that it serves as a good blocker for air leakage. There are cellulose insulation pros and cons but we are sure the pros outweigh the cons.
Pipes and Wiring
Cellulose fits well in pipes and wirings to seal air pockets. It is also safer than fiberglass. You can save money and better protect your family or employees with this eco-friendly option.
Cellulose fiber reduces the passage of sound through walls. It is denser than fiberglass, providing more noise dampening.
Mold and Pest Control
The compounds added to cellulose fibers prevent the growth of mold in your walls and help keep pests out of your insulation.
Cellulose is able to prevent excess moisture problems while retaining breathability.
Makes use of dry cellulose that is retrofitted in homes and offices by blowing the material through holes drilled in the tops of walls or through retainers and nettings clamped to these walls.
Packing cellulose as densely as possible minimizes air pockets. However, this process is difficult and should only be undertaken by experienced technicians.
For newly constructed walls, technicians can spray cellulose, water, and a retardant mixture. This helps prevent the growth of bacteria, fungi, and mold. Sometimes, a small amount of adhesive is added to the mix.
Star Spray Foams offers reliable cellulose insulation in New Orleans and we spray cellulose seals the wall cavities better for a more consistent air block; it also eliminates the settling issues of dry-loose fill. The cellulose insulation must sit for at least a day before it works at full efficiency.

Proper insulation is imperative for protecting your property and everyone within. You can even improve the air quality alongside your climate control. Not only will we properly install new insulation, but we can also remove old and failing insulation.
Improper insulation can cause a myriad of issues in your home, from general discomfort to moisture issues, damage, and mold growth. We can inspect your current insulation to see if it’s to blame for your troubles.
UV radiation from the sun can be harmful to your family, your employees, and your roofs. Eco-friendly and affordable white roof coatings provide a safe solution. Let us help protect your roof and everyone beneath it.
Energy costs are on the rise, and excess use can also harm the environment. Our energy audits help find areas where your home or office are using energy inefficiently. We’ll then suggest potential solutions to reduce your energy costs.
Warehouses and other commercial properties often rely on blower doors. However, you need to ensure that the air seals, pressure monitors, and other devices on the door are functioning properly to prevent air leakage and improve air quality and climate control. We can check your blower door’s equipment to ensure just that.
