When voids form beneath commercial buildings, they can cause significant issues. To protect your commercial building and property, it is essential to have these voids filled quickly. The best way to fill voids beneath structures is with polyurethane void filling.
Voids are spaces in the ground created by changes in the structure of soil or rock. They can be caused by shifting, settling, erosion or other factors. When there are voids below your commercial building, it can cause damage to the structure of your building or foundation system. If left unfilled for too long, these voids can result in structural damage that could lead to the collapse of your building. This can be dangerous for anyone who works in or around your building, as well as customers. Polyurethane foam can be used to fill voids beneath many commercial structures such as office buildings, parking lots and garages, rental condos and apartments and more! When used for void-filling applications, polyurethane foam can last for a lifetime. It is also environmentally friendly. It contains no harsh or toxic chemicals that can pollute the environment around it and is made of partly recycled materials.
Polyurethane void filling is the most effective method for filling voids beneath buildings. Polyurethane foam expands up to 50 times its original size when injected into voids in the soil. When injected, it seeks out voids and loose soils and creates a "tree root" like structure. This effectively fills voids and stabilizes the soil, so new voids don't form. Polyurethane foam has been used for void-filling applications for many years because it is durable and long-lasting and helps prevent further damage to commercial structures that can be caused by voids below them.

The benefits of using polyurethane foam to fill voids beneath commercial structures are many. It is durable, long-lasting, resistant to water and elements, and environmentally friendly. Polyurethane foam is the ideal void-filling solution for a variety of applications.
Polyurethane foam is unaffected by moisture or temperature changes, making it ideal for applications in which the ground may be wet or subject to freezing temperatures. Polyurethane foam also resists erosion from water, so it will not degrade over time. This durability makes polyurethane foam a good choice for filling voids beneath commercial structures in areas with a high risk of flooding or other environmental damage.
Polyurethane foam is environmentally friendly because it does not emit harmful gases or toxic fumes during installation. It is made of up to 40% recycled materials. It contains no toxic chemicals that may seep into the soil around it, making it ideal for void-filling applications. It can also be excavated and recycled if needed, adding to its environmentally friendly benefits.
The durability of polyurethane means that you won't have to worry about the foam breaking down over time. This can be an important factor if you're looking to save money on repairs or maintenance in the future. Once applied, it can last for decades without degrading or needing to be replaced. Polyurethane foam is a great choice for filling in voids beneath commercial structures because it's so versatile. It can be used for both interior and exterior applications; it's easy to install and is strong enough to support the weight of large structures. The team at Maritime Concrete Lifting can fill voids on your commercial property quickly and effectively with polyurethane foam.
