U.F.F.I. (Urea Formaldehyde Foam Insulation) Testing|
Urea formaldehyde foam insulation (U.F.F.I.) was used in the mid-1970's in
many residential and commercial buildings as a primary or supplementary insulating material where it expanded to completely fill the space and then hardened.
Unfortunately it was found that this type of foam insulation emitted toxic
formaldehyde fumes causing serious respiratory health problems. This foam
should be removed by a qualified contractor.
