Properly Sealing a Crawl Space in Mansfield, OH

Wednesday, May 16th, 2018 by Holly Richards-Purpura


During the few years that they have lived in their house, homeowners in Mansfield, OH, noticed some upstairs living areas seemed musty. After investigating every nook and cranny, the owners detected the same issues in the crawl space. While they rarely go into this area under their house, a recent peek inside revealed the same conditions. The crawl space also was not properly sealed, and it was full of debris.

The homeowners wanted to ensure the health and safety of their entire house, so they began to search for repair options. They found information online about Ohio Basement Authority and were motivated to contact us to learn more about how we could help. They met with Drew Black who completed a thorough assessment of the crawl space. Drew then recommended the perfect repair solutions.


One of our crews then transformed the crawl space with a CrawlSeal encapsulation.

After ridding the crawl space of debris and other nuisances, drainage matting was placed on the crawl space floor. This material enhances the durability of the encapsulation liner. The crawl space was then encapsulated in thick and durable CrawlSeal. CrawlSeal completely seals the crawl space from the earth, serves as a moisture and vapor barrier, and helps insulate the crawl space.

Additionally, a dehumidifier was placed in the crawl space. This compact but powerful and energy-efficient unit cleans and filters the air, controls humidity and moisture, and helps reduce odors and the potential for mold growth.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these trustworthy solutions have helped them create a safer and healthier living environment that they will be able to enjoy for many years to come.
