Spray foam odor
Just had a question when it comes to spray foam odors. Everything that I have researched online about spray foam says that it should not give off odors if it is installed properly. It has been a week now that they finished spraying closed cell insulation in my half story and it still has a scent to it but not a fish smell like most people say just a odor like a new substance was installed for example if you paint it gives off a scent. This odor is only in the half story and you can not smell on the main floor at all. It was and still is around 40 degrees when it was installed so not for sure if that is keeping the smell less potent since people say when it gets warmer the smell can get worse. I also had a box fan exhausting out the half story for three days which helped but after turning off it came back. So is it normal for spray foam after being installed that it will have somewhat of a odor like paint does after being put on? Also would this fishy smell be pretty potent and obvious compared to just a smell that a substance gives after being installed? Finally what would be a good way to find out if it is a bad install other than just relying on the smells? Any help appreciated just want to be sure I don’t have a bad install.
