Wet insulation means that you have a crawl space humidity problem. Humidity is your crawl space's number one enemy. It damages the wood floor joists, promotes mold and mildew growth and can even increase your home's electric bills. If your crawl space insulation is wet and starting to fall, that means that you've had a crawl space humidity problem for a long time.

What Do I Need to Do First?

First you need to find the source or your crawl space moisture issue. Finding the source of the problem involves a thorough inspection of your crawl space and the area surrounding your crawl space foundation.

Why Do I Have Wet Crawl Space Insulation?

Wet crawl space insulation is caused by crawl space humidity which can be caused by:

Open crawl space vents

Loose crawl space doors

Ground water seeping into your crawl space

The wet crawl space insulation is a haven for mold. And if there's mold in your wet crawl space insulation, chances are there's mold on the floor joists and even wood rot.

Why Should I Fix My Wet Insulation Problem?

Mold in Crawl SpaceThe air in your crawl space circulates through your entire home. The warm air in your home rises up into the higher sections of your home, which is why your attic's always so warm.


As the heat rises it creates a vacuum which pulls the cool air up from your crawl space – cycling it through your home's living space. As air is pulled into your crawl space it's cooled, creating humidity and the cycle continues. "The air in your crawl space is circulated through your entire home. So if you have a moldy crawl space, chances are you're breathing in mold."This is also called the "Stack Effect".

Since the air in your crawl space is circulated through your entire home, you're breathing in mold if you have a moldy crawl space.

If there's mold in your crawl space, the mold spores are being cycled through your home, and if you have crawl space humidity problems then the moisture is also being pulled throughout the rest of your home. Protect your home and health by having your crawl space inspected by a certified repair specialist.

"I was extremely happy with all those on the work crew for the work they performed and their professionalism. They worked continuously until dark, sometimes working until after 7:30 pm. Their finished product is impressive and they left my wife and I so glad that we selected your company. Best of all, my wife who is highly allergic to mold and mildew, has been able to breathe better than she has since we bought the house, so this is great!"
