I wish I had an easy answer for everyone who has been in contact with me about a SPF horror story.
Nothing about having SPF that is off gassing is easy. It is overwhelming to say the least to realize your largest asset and your health are in limbo. It is very worse when people tell you SPF is safe and you are ‘just sensitive.’
If you are sick from your home take action:
Recommendations from our personal and others experience are as follows:
-Contact the Installer and SPF company.
-Contact an Industrial Hygienist with experience in SPF or isocyanates.
-Get your own IAQ and SPF chamber tests
-Do NOT allow any removal of foam unless done in a controlled fashion (the dust is a dermal and respiratory sensitizers )
-consider legal help, so far the SPF companies only do so much then you are on your own.
-Be cautious of advice from industry specialists as most will defend SPF and erroneously declare that the off gassing is only a “nuisance” odor.
-Keep all info you send and the info sent from the SPF company organized and easy to access.
-Agree or disagree only in writing.
