WILL I BE EXPOSED TO ANY CHEMICALS?

Rigorous testing has shown that after the spray foam has been installed, exposure to gases within the Icynene spray foam is negligible. Over a long period of time, independent testing has shown that after 24 hours, emission levels and VOC’s from the Icynene spray foam are well below the established guidelines. After 30 days, research has shown that VOC emissions are so low that they become virtually undetectable.

WILL THERE BE ANY SMELL POST INSTALLATION?

The likelihood of smelling odours in your property is very low. However, if you have a strong sense of smell, you may be able to smell a safe concentration of amine catalysts which we use in the spray foam application.

As a result of the Icynene installation process, your home will be more sealed and tighter. Similar to heat, odours will be trapped in your home but with proper ventilation, general odours will be released from your property.
