Should I wear protective clothing when using spray foam insulation kits? Should I wear protective clothing when using spray foam insulation kits?
Spray foam insulation kits are not dangerous, as far as being toxic chemicals that can harm your family and the environment. As it is a spray, take caution not to ruin clothing or inhale the polyurethane foam while applying. If you get the polyurethane foam on clothing, it will not come off. The least expensive solution is disposable plastic suits, that fit over your clothing like coveralls. Also, to keep from breathing in the foam when it is flying during application, use a respirator mask. The foam will not harm your skin, but it can be tough to remove. For this, a regular pair of work gloves can be used.
