Is Spray Foam Insulation Safe?

Society is moving towards the trend of using non-toxic, chemical-free products and materials. We see this as people make more health-conscious decisions when it comes to what we eat, what we put on our skin, and now even what is inside of our homes. But have you ever thought about if the insulation inside of your home is safe?


Asbestos was a normal mineral to use in home insulation up until the 1970s! We now know of the dangerous toxicity levels even small amounts of exposure can cause; however, it is not outlawed in every form of insulation. There are other types of insulation that contain harmful agents like formaldehyde or toxic flame retardants so it’s important to choose a home insulation material with less dangerous health effects. 


In all transparency, spray foam does contain chemicals that have a level of toxicity prior to being curred. During the spray foam insulation installation process, our team takes careful measures to ensure the safety of your family and pet’s health. The MPI Foam team is well-trained on how to properly apply spray foam insulation in order to decrease the risk of exposure to harmful agents. Once spray foam insulation is curred and has been set, there are little to no negative effects to your family and pet’s health, making this type of insulation safe for your home for years to come. 


Our team is dedicated to giving you the details to help you make an informed decision about your home insulation. We also offer a variety of insulation products to serve each family’s needs better. Here is a list of suppliers we work with: 

  • NCFI®
  • Huntsman®
  • BASF®
  • Bayer®

  • Demilec®


When we ask the question, “Is spray foam insulation safe?” we also need to ask the question, “Is my home safe without spray foam insulation?”


Spray foam insulation protects your home and your family from air filtration and inhibits mold, mildew, and bacterial growth. Without it, your family is at a higher risk of poor air circulation which opens the pathways for unhealthy allergens. Homes deserve to be a safe haven, not a place that adds to the deterioration of your health. 


At MPI Foam, the safety of our customers is our top priority. We choose products that are safe for you and your family. If you’re ready for a spray foam consultation to better protect the health of your family and your home, give us a call at 844-MPI-FOAM.
