Flammable Furniture

It is scary to think that popular materials that make up our furniture have been nicknamed “solid gasoline” by firefighters, but a sofa can catch fire in a matter of minutes and burn at more than 1400 degrees. In 2006, the National Institute of Standards and Technology estimated that furniture made of polyurethane foam was responsible for 30% of deaths in household fires. Even more dangerous, is that during that fire toxic chemicals are released in to the air, such as hydrogen cyanide, a well known asphyxiate, which can cause serious health risks and even death.

According to the Product Safety Commission, an estimated 800 people die each year as a result of fires started by an upholstered piece of furniture and countless others are injured and suffer health risks from smoke and chemical exposure. Toxic smoke inhalation causes more deaths in fires than burn injuries, so it might be shocking to learn that the federal government has not issued flammability standards for furniture other than mattresses. That does not mean you do not have legal options. If you or a loved one has been involved in a house or apartment fire that was caused by flammable furniture, then you may have legal options.
