Closed-cell spray foam insulation - is it safe?
We are reading lots of things about spray foam insulation, and have just had the attic space in our new home spray foamed with a closed cell variety. We are contemplating fiberglass batting in the rest of the house after reading that the offgasses from this spray foam installation can cause respiratory irritation, even after the initial 72 hours, particularly for those already suffering with asthma. The American Lung Asssociation recommends spray foam insulation. The EPA cautions about the respiratory irritation. What to do? Is this a safe product for home application?
