Indoor air quality is greatly improved in properly built ICF homes. Because there is no outside air infiltration through the walls, all of the air brought into the house is properly filtered. This maintains cleaner indoor air, and aids in reducing dust, pollen, mold, and other allergens. Persons suffering from such allergies can feel relief.

    Moisture inside exterior walls and the possibility of mold growing inside wall cavities can be a major concern. There is no chance of this in Integraspec ICF walls because there is no cavity in the wall, and the EPS foam will not absorb moisture. It also provides nothing to foster the growth of mold or mildew. 

     Integraspec’s EPS (expanded polystyrene) is a safe material without glues or formaldehyde and does not off-gas Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) or other toxic gases.

    All EPS used in IntegraSpec insulating concrete forms contains a flame retardant that reduces the flammability and spread of flame on its surface, to such an extent that it is classified as "flame retardant" according to international fire standards.
