Swapped from fiberglass to spray-foam insulation


After a 2nd floor window leak caused a mold problem in the drywall ceiling of my garage, I pulled out a lot of moldy fiberglass insulation and brought in a spray foam contractor to do spray foam. My concern is that the spray foam is now in the top of the joist space and the ducts are below it. While the fiberglass insulation used to sit on top of the drywall ceiling. The ducts are insulated R-6, but wondering if I need to do anything before closing off this ceiling. I live in Northern Virginia.

Thanks in advance.
