Creating a Healthy Storage Area with CrawlSeal Encapsulation in Powell, OH

Tuesday, May 16th, 2017 by Holly Richards-Purpura


Homeowners in Powell, OH, have lived in their house since it was built 20 years ago. They recently began to notice issues with the partial crawl space just off of the basement. They use this area for storage, but it is far from an ideal storage space.

The gravel floor lacked a proper liner, and the fiberglass insulation was failing and falling off of the walls. It also was crumbling and coating the gravel floor. These conditions can greatly affect the items stored in the area, and they can negatively impact the health of the rest of the house.

The owners knew they couldn’t continue to ignore these issues, so they started to research how to best address these problems. They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company online, and they met with one of our inspectors. After completing a thorough evaluation of the nasty crawl space, our inspector presented the homeowners with the perfect permanent solution.


The homeowners removed their stored belongings, and one of our crews  got rid of all the debris and failing insulation. The crew then encapsulated the crawl space in CrawlSeal liner.

CrawlSeal is similar to swimming pool liner. It is thick and durable, and completely isolates the crawl space from the earth. It prevents vapor and moisture intrusion, and its antimicrobial coating protects it from mold growth. The white liner automatically brightens the crawl space, and it is tough enough to crawl on, thus creating an ideal storage area.

The homeowners are pleased to now have a healthier crawl space and home because of this reliable repair solution.
