Can Insulation Affect Your Asthma and Allergies?

 

While insulation may not be the first thing on your mind when making your home healthy for your family, it can make a huge impact for people with allergies. One of the biggest indoor allergens is mold, which can affect people year round if it is found inside of the home. When choosing an insulation, it is important to find one that is mold and mildew-resistant.

Many products claim to be better for people with asthma and allergies, so it’s sometimes hard to know if these claims are true. Products with AAFA’s asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Mark, however, are proven to help reduce allergens. They have been tested to withstand routine cleaning, and provide increased environmental control.

The Owens Corning® Pure Safety™ Insulation is now the world's first Certified asthma & allergy friendly® insulation, meeting all of the criteria for the Synthetic Home Insulation Products Standard. The Standard addresses a product’s effect on indoor air quality and capacity to resist mold growth.
