Is dirty Tyvek a problem?
Our weather has turned very wet this month, and a lot of dirt has been splashed up during heavy rains onto the Tyvek covering the walls of our house under construction. I had read somewhere that it was important to keep Tyvek clean, as the dirt can cause it to lose water repellency.
Is this a real issue? Will I need to replace this muddy Tyvek, or can it be cleaned?
