INSULATION

Why you should consider removing fiberglass insulation from your crawl space:

1. Moisture Damage: Fiberglass insulation that has been exposed to moisture can lose its insulative properties. Moisture can result from leaks, flooding, or high humidity levels, and it can also lead to fungal growth within the insulation material.

2. Mold and Air Quality: If moisture has infiltrated your insulation, it can become a breeding ground for mold, which can have significant health implications. Mold spores can spread to other parts of your home, potentially causing respiratory issues and other health problems for the occupants.

3. Pest Infestation: Damaged or deteriorating insulation can attract pests such as rodents and insects. These pests can nest in the insulation, and their waste can be hazardous to health. Additionally, they can cause further damage as they chew through materials and potentially electrical wiring.

4. Reduced Energy Efficiency: Damaged insulation won't perform effectively. This means your home may lose heat during the winter and gain heat during the summer, leading to higher energy bills and a less comfortable living space.

5. Structural Damage: Over time, moisture can damage the structural elements of your crawl space, such as joists and beams. Removing wet or damaged insulation can help prevent long-term damage to the structure of your home.

6. Material Deterioration: Fiberglass insulation can deteriorate over time due to environmental factors, such as moisture and gravity causing it to hang or fall. Once it deteriorates, it needs to be replaced to ensure that it can continue to serve its purpose effectively.

Our Solution:

At our company, we tack up and replace fallen or damaged insulation. However, we advocate for utilizing advanced materials like foam board insulation that can outperform traditional fiberglass insulation—delivering greater efficiency at a lower cost, and without the associated drawbacks. Let us help you upgrade to a smarter, safer, and more sustainable insulation solution for your home.
