What Are the Causes of Wet Insulation?

Excess moisture can cause huge problems for the integrity of your foundation and damage property. Those causes are:

  • Water leaks: Leaking roofs, pipes, or plumbing fixtures can introduce moisture.
  • Flooding: Submersion in water due to floods or heavy rain.
  • Poor ventilation: Inadequate airflow can trap moisture inside a building.
  • High humidity: Consistently high indoor humidity levels can contribute to moisture buildup.
  • Pest damage: Animals and insects can create openings in insulation, permitting moisture entry.
  • Structural damage: Damage to a building's structure, such as cracks or holes, can facilitate water intrusion.

What If Your Insulation Gets Wet?

When insulation gets wet, it can lead to various problems and issues. Here are some considerations:

  • Wet insulation may develop unpleasant odors.
  • Water compromises the insulation's ability to trap heat or cold air.
  • Moisture creates a favorable environment for mold and mildew to thrive.
  • Prolonged exposure to water can weaken the structure of insulation materials.
  • It forces heating and cooling systems to work harder, resulting in higher energy bills.
  • Mold and mildew growth can release allergens and harmful substances, affecting indoor air quality.
