Can you let the insulation dry without taking the damaged product out? The short answer is no. What is important to keep in mind is that insulation is made out of a fluffy material. The challenge becomes that once the insulation becomes wet it compacts, and it loses its R-Value making it less effective. While the insulation itself may not create a source for mold to grow, it may generate food for mold to grow on the wood structures in your ceiling and walls.
