COVID19 & spray foam disaster
I have an active post recently re my health issues post a retrofit spray foam job where my husband and I were not asked to leave the home nor did the installers use any fans to ventilate the space that is walk-in on our top floor with doors off our bedroom.
For 12 days, I did not sleep upstairs. I’ve had ashmatic-like cough, headaches and eye irritation. The contractor asked us to run an industrial fan from attic to outside. Did that for 36 hours, made it much worse. So he said close attic and just run upstairs. Did tat for the day, left the home and headache and eye irritation upon entering. Opened downstairs door to walk upstairs (there is a door) and bam…couldn’t get past the fourth step. It was like a toxic wall. I had been wearing a respirator downstairs unless I was in my sunroom or front downstairs bedroom next to window with door open.
Last night, I just said I need to leave. I am now in a hotel. Past 2 days, called ERs but no one will take someone with my symptoms — not coronavirus like. At the same time, I am in a major city, the world is shutting down and telling ppl to just stay home. I would love to stay home. But, I can’t. I could probably in normal times, get therapeutics. Using a few puffs of my daughters old albuterol inhaler.
My daughter needs to come home from college. But we can’t let her until we find somewhere short term to live. She has asthma from seasonal and colds. Can’t go to 80 year old parents. Hope to see doctor tomorrow.
This is a becoming a nightmare on steroids.
