Root Causes of Wet, Hanging Insulation

  • High Humidity: The damp nature of crawl spaces can pose certain challenges, including high humidity. If humidity levels are too high in the crawlspace, conditions can lead to moisture buildup, mold, and mildew growth.
  • Water Intrusion: Notice a lot of water in your crawl space following rainfall? Any standing water, whether through cracks in the floor or basement, can also put more moisture into the air. The result could be wet hanging crawl space insulation.
