Crawl Space Insulation - Mildew/Mold Growth on Joists
Saturated insulation holds its moisture against floor joists. Since floor joists are an organic material, they are a food source for microbial growth. Saturated joists can become an even bigger problem for homeowners if left untreated. At 19% wood moisture content, the potential for wood rot begins, compromising the integrity of the joist, and your floors.
