Crawl Space Insulation - Mold and Mildew
Mold grows on the wood floor joists and paper backing of the insulation. All mold needs to grow on organic materials is high relative humidity and moderate temperatures. The microbial growth compromises the indoor air quality of the home because approximately 50% of the air inside the home comes from the crawl space. Homeowners may also notice that the air in the home seems humid or experience musty odors.
