Exposure to some insulation products can impact your health if the materials are mishandled or misused. Common health issues include itchy, watery, or irritating sensation of the eyes, throat, or nose. You could also suffer itchy skin or rashes. Some homeowners have reported breathing difficulties, especially if they have asthma or other breathing disorders. On some occasions nausea, confusion, and headaches have been reported. There’s even an unpleasant odor which may stick around.
Having skin contact with these materials can cause some side effects as well. When you cut dried foam or handle loose, fluffy fiberglass, or cellulose insulation, there is a substantial amount of dust generated. Fiberglass can also shed tiny glass pieces which are itchy.
The tiny fibers of glass from the insulation wool can irritate your eyes and your skin. Too much contact with fiberglass can result in irritant contact dermatitis or skin inflammation.
Fiberglass insulation is safe to install and use as long as you take the recommended safety measures. When working with fiberglass insulation, wear long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, sturdy shoes, socks, gloves, and a hat.
Other protective gear to use include:
Safety goggles to protect your eyes.
Dust mask to protect your respiratory tract.
To minimize exposure to fiberglass dust, don’t try to remove fiberglass materials from the packaging until it is ready to be installed. Keep your work area clean and free of waste insulation materials and ensure proper ventilation throughout the installation.
