It is possible that urea-formaldehyde may have been injected into your cavity wall if it was insulated in the 1970s or early 1980s. Over a number of years, this type of foam can degrade and it may become harmful to your health. Steel or wooden framed properties are structurally unsuitable for cavity wall insulation. Brick constructed properties which are near the coast or in poor condition may also be unsuitable as it is believed that properties near the coast should not have the insulation installed in the first place as they are subject to wind-driven rain. If a property has been flooded, the cavity wall insulation may become wet, leading to damp problems inside a property. The high levels of water used to extinguish the flames in the event of a fire could also lead to the insulation retaining some of this, leading to further problems with damp.

Other Cavity Wall Insulation Problems May Include:

  • Mould growth, possibly caused by the damp
  • Dry rot, possibly caused by untreated damp
  • The corrosion of cavity wall ties, possibly caused by the insulation becoming wet
  • Damp problems, possibly caused by the warm air condensing onto cold spots which haven’t been correctly insulated
  • Cold spots on walls, possibly caused by areas of the wall which haven’t been correctly insulated
