Spray Foam Accidents: Are You Prepared?
Preplanning with an overspray removal company saves time and money

DALLAS, TX (June 28, 2010) – No matter how many precautions are taken to limit overspray during spray foam application, accidental overspray can occur. Without proper contingency planning, cleanup costs in these situations can have a significant negative impact on a project’s profitability. In some cases, poor handling of these situations can even result in payment being withheld for an entire spray foam job. To avoid this outcome, it is important to leave damage control and overspray cleanup to experts in the field.

Overspray occurs as a result of external factors such as wind and elevation carrying a mist outside the application’s target area and causing unintended damage. Suppose you were installing spray foam to a rooftop on a three-story building. You properly sealed the area and took all appropriate precautions to confine the application to the target area. Suddenly a 35 knot wind gust blows while you are spraying the roof. The spray foam becomes airborne, travels 300 yards to an adjacent businesses’ parking lot and settles on 30 automobiles. This scenario actually happened to a Missouri company.

Instantly, you are confronted with a crisis. The owners of the cars are demanding that you fix their cars and the building owner that hired you is worried about his own liability. The question becomes what to do to handle the situation quickly and effectively. What do you say to the damaged parties in the first meeting? “I don’t know” or “I’m not sure” may not be good enough. Having a contingency plan and a specific vendor in place to immediately secure the situation and begin communicating with the claimants will improve your chances that costs and lost work time will be minimized. In short, preplanning saves money and aggravation.

There are many overspray removal companies out there and while most can handle the clean up effectively, not all are skilled in claims management.
