      United States

Home, schools, offices that have spray foam insulation may be full of flame retardant dust and off gassing of toxic SPF chemicals. It is not a safe or 'green' product.

      We had sprayfoam installed in our house and am terrified about what toxins are in our home.

      Keeping our homes energy efficient shouldn't be balanced with exposure to toxic insulation

      Foam can be un healthy and people need to be aware of the possible issues

      As a designer & builder of homes, I think it is important for people to know what their homes are made with.

      We are considering building our 'dream home' becuase I have severe asthma and sensitives to mold (in wood/drywall) but also to perfumes and chemicals. We WERE going to go with a 'new' company that frames houses with steel and foam and then spray foams on top of that (instead of a wooden frame because of my sensitivities to mold) but now we are afraid that we'll stretch our finance to build this 'spray foam' house only to find that the toxic chemcials will off gas .. for how long.. may make my and my 10 year old son's asthma worse, or cause cancer or other ill effects. There needs to be good studies and controls of any/all chemicals we use in our everyday environments, homes, schools, offices, just as much or more that we control what food/drugs are allowed!
