Water Damaged Pipe Insulation in Hurricanes, Floods & Storms

Traditional Pipe Insulation Damaged

Fiberglass insulation’s number one enemy is water. Fiberglass is made from water and recycled glass, so the fibers themselves won’t absorb water. However when water gets into the air pockets of fiberglass insulation, it reduces the performance of the insulation because water is a heat conductor. So when the heat presses up against the insulation, the water will push the heat right out of your home. Or if it is the summer, bring the heat into your home. Once that happens, say goodbye to those savings. Fiberglass insulation is also chemically bonded together so when the chemicals get wet, they start to fall apart and the insulation gets broken into small pieces. This makes it useless and a pain to clean up!
