PPE for Spray Foam Application

While cured spray polyurethane foam provides safe, affordable energy efficiency for Louisiana homeowners and business owners.  The installation of spray foam – both closed cell and open cell – in attics, walls, crawl spaces, and on rooftops requires precision, attention to detail, and precaution. At Sunlight Contractors, LLC, we pride ourselves on ensuring a safe, healthy environment before, during, and after an installation for our crew, our clients, and their community.  It is a requirement of Sunlight when our team is installing they employee PPE for spay foam and clearly post the area that they are working.

We are Louisiana’s premier SPFA-certified spray foam specialists

Our spray foam installation contractors are trained and certified by the Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance, a non-profit professional organization committed to appropriate safety protocol in the use of spray polyurethane foam. They are instructed in the proper use of PPE for spray foam, or personal protective equipment, as well as safety guidelines that protect the people in the area where spray foam is being applied.

Spray foam as an insulation material has been used in industrial construction for over thirty years, and it’s become popular as a residential insulation over the past ten years. While it has been proven to be perfectly safe once cured, during application, it can be potentially harmful if it is inhaled or comes in contact with skin.

Safety during spray foam installations is our priority

That’s why we put up cautionary signs and barriers wherever we install spray foam. This gives us the peace of mind to know that our clients and their neighbors are safely outside the spraying zone. Similarly, our crew of certified installers are required to wear breathing, body, glove, and eye protection during and immediately following the application in order to protect their health.

Ventilation of the area being sprayed is also mandatory when installing spray foam. When a work space is properly ventilated, it can reduce airborne levels of vapors resulting from the application. This protects SPF contractors and others in the area from inhaling the particulates emitted into the air, which can cause coughing and breathing difficulties. These dusty remains will linger until the area is completely cleaned and ventilated, which is why we take great care at Sunlight Contractors, LLC to leave the homes we treat even cleaner than they were when we arrived.

Proper PPE means our crew and our clients are safe!

When considering spray foam as an insulation for your home or business, be sure to familiarize yourself with the safety precautions necessary to guarantee an installation that not only conserves energy but also preserves the health and well-being of those around you. To avoid safety hazards altogether, hire SPFA certified spray foam installers.
