Wet insulation must be removed as soon as possible and homes must be able to dry completely to avoid bacterial growth. Once framing is dry, Eastern can spray antibacterial disinfectant to kill any surface bacteria before we re-insulate. Any homes with MOLD problems either inside or under the home must be addressed by a certified mold specialist. We can help you determine whether you need to go the extra step and have a MOLD professional come in to consult with you.
There is nothing wrong with re installing fiberglass insulation. It is less expensive and can be done very quickly. However, if this new insulation gets wet again it will again need to be replaced. A second alternative is to install closed cell spray foam in the crawl space and bottom portion of the first floor walls. The closed cell foam is structured so that water will NOT penetrate the surface of the foam and the water will actually be stopped from moving into the house. Spray Applied Closed Cell Insulation is the ONLY form of insulation material that is approved and supported by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) , NFIP (National Flood Insurance Program) Flood-Damage-Resistant Design in construction standards. In additional, spray foam is a much more effective way to insulate against the cold. It will help save on energy costs and also improve air quality of your home or building in New Jersey. Spray foam insulation stops air infiltration which makes your home warmer in the winter and stay cooler in the summer..Studies show that 40% of a home’s energy is lost due to air infiltration.
