If you notice discomfort or experience an increase in your utility bills? Your crawl space might be the culprit.

Signs Your Seattle, WA Crawl Space Insulation Needs To Be Replaced

The primary indicator of inefficient insulation is an increase in your energy bills. If you notice your energy bills are higher than usual, it might be time to check your crawl space insulation. 

If you can see the ground in your home’s crawl space, it means there is a lack of insulation. Not only is this a sign your insulation needs to be replaced, but it’s also a significant fire hazard. This can cause your energy bills to increase due to a lack of insulation. 

 

Traces of squirrels, mice, or rats can be a nightmare for any homeowner. You certainly don’t want rodents or animals taking up residence in your home.

If you notice any animal droppings in your crawl space, there is a hole somewhere that needs to be rodent proofed. Animals can cause extensive damage to your insulation and should be dealt with immediately.

Mold and mildew are a sign of moisture, which means your insulation is not doing its job or you have a leak. Not only is this unsightly, but it can also cause health problems.

If you see mold or mildew, it’s time to replace your insulation. It is important to note that you need to fix the moisture problem to prevent the mold from returning.

Over time, insulation can start to sag and degrade. It is usually due to too much weight on the insulation or improper installation. Sagging insulation is less effective and needs to be replaced.

If there are any water leaks or pipe bursts, it is important to remove and replace the insulation to prevent any mold or mildew growth.

Mold is an indication there is a moisture problem. Infestation is likely to worsen if the crawl space is vented, or not sealed and if the attic does not have proper ventilation. It can also make its way through your HVAC systems or open doors. When mold spores float and rest on surfaces with excessive moisture, they will grow and spread.

Insulation Co.’s insulation installation requires more than just installing the insulation. While insulation excels as a thermal barrier, it isn’t the best air barrier. To mitigate air leakage, our insulation experts will apply an air foam seal around lights, plumbing, and wires that penetrate the drywall. This reduces energy loss and helps to regulate interior temperatures.

Your crawl space and attic are likely to attract 3 types of molds. Black mold is the deadliest and most irritant. It can appear dark gray and can be fuzzy or even powdery. There are two strains of black mold and both release mycotoxins that can cause serious allergic reactions. The 2nd is white mold, it mostly sprouts on exposed soil and wooden joists and can appear fuzzy. This type of mold is not as dangerous but still can cause health problems. The 3rd type of mold is the yellow type that feeds on wooden structures which causes them to decay and deteriorate. Yellow mold will usually appear flat.

Clean and well-maintained insulation helps you regulate your home’s energy, reduces toxins in the air, and keeps moisture out of your attic, crawl space, and walls.

Crawl spaces are out of sight out of mind but the benefits from crawl space clean outs can make all the difference. Some of the benefits of crawl space cleaning include preventing rodent infestations, lower energy bills, moisture protection, and much more!
