Sewage leak on insulation


Should all touching rows of insulation be replaced when there was a sewage leak that made one row (between joists) fall. I am concerned about mold and also sanitation because the joist is also wet.. Will the smell draw vectors?

Sewage leak on insulation


Welcome to the forum!

We need more information..... Is this a crawl space with under-floor fiberglass batt insulation? What/where was leaking? Once f.g gets wet.....: http://www.totalbasementfinishing.co...shed-basement/

Just when you think you got it all...: http://www.inspectapedia.com/sickhou...rglassMold.htm
