St. Louis Spray Foam Insulation Lawsuits
Representing Missouri Residents Subjected to Toxic Exposure
Spray foam insulation is marketed as highly durable, effective, reliable, and non-toxic, as well as better for the environment when compared to traditional insulation. This has led many Americans to opt for spray foam insulation in their new properties. Unfortunately, it has become apparent that spray foam insulation is far from non-toxic.
If you have spray foam insulation in your home or have used it yourself, you may have been exposed to formaldehyde and other dangerous chemicals. This may cause respiratory problems, organ and nerve damage, and birth defects down the line.
The good news is that those injured may have the right to sue manufacturers for putting them at risk of toxic exposure. To find out if you qualify for a spray foam insulation lawsuit, reach out to The Tapella & Eberspacher Law Firm.

About Spray Foam Insulation
Before the advent of spray foam, insulation was made of fiberglass. Since fiberglass is accepted as unsafe for both humans and the environment, spray foam revolutionized the industry when it first appeared. It promptly became the favored choice over traditional insulation.
Manufacturers continue to market spray foam as an eco-friendly, non-toxic alternative to fiberglass. Made primarily of polyurethane, users must mix various chemicals to achieve the correct consistency. The foam is then, as the name suggests, sprayed on a building’s interior to hold in heat. As it turns out, spray foam can be highly toxic to users and tenants alike.
Toxic Exposure Is Highly Likely During Mixing
The issue with spray foam lies in the mixing process. Not only are some of the chemicals involved known carcinogens, but dangerous combinations may be created when spray foam is mixed incorrectly. A few signs of potentially hazardous spray foam include if it is the incorrect color, emits a bad smell, forms peaks, or appears crystallized or contracted.
It is easy for a contractor, HVAC worker, or other professional to suffer toxic exposure during the mixing process, and even easier for someone who is not a professional. If improperly mixed spray foam is used, it may endanger homeowners and tenants long after it cures.
