In most homes, the kitchen is frequently the hub of activity. But noisy appliances like dishwashers, food processors and garbage disposals can be a source of distraction to members of your family in other areas of the house. For this reason, sound control is a chief consideration when insulating this room.
In addition, as in bathrooms, moisture control must be considered because of the steam generated by cooking and dish washing. This steam is actually moisture vapor in the air that is transferred along with heat. When moisture vapor becomes trapped in walls, mold and mildew growth can result, damaging your home and presenting a potential health concern to you and your family.
