If the gap between floor and wall too much (from 1 to 8 cm) of it pulls cold and damp, to decorative trim cover it with foam or caulk.Wide slit prefilled what some inexpensive materials to reduce the consumption of foam, such as wood, foam, plastic, brick.
Note that gap foaming can be carried out at temperatures above + 5 ° C.Before working with assembly foam wear gloves, because with it, it almost does not wash.Shake the bottle, shake it for at least a minute.
Treat all surface water -
it is possible to use spray or bryzgalku from a plastic bottle (punch some holes in the lid with a nail).
Remove the cap screw up, turn the bottle upside down with the foam and click on special assignments.Zapenivayte the gap by one-third of the gap, as the foam will increase 2-3 times.After the gap is closed, sbyznite with water.If within half an hour left gap , walk with the balloon again.
After 8-10 hours, the foam is dry, remove the excess with a knife.
