Is it feasible to install "wet" treated cellulose insulation in the walls and "attic" of an older mobile home? We have been told that treated cellulose insulation is insulation, of course, as well as a fire retardant and sealant. Holes are made numerous places in the walls, above and below fire breaks, and at both ends of the mobile home and that the cellulose is "blown" in. Literature we have been shown indicates a 30-40% reduction in energy, however, we are primarily interested in the "fire" retardant. It is our understanding that the cellulose does not burn and thus, would protect the mobile home from going up in smoke. What do you think? Please advise ASAP. Thanks.
