Homeowners in Enon, OH, have lived in their house for eight years. After recently venturing into the multiple crawl spaces underneath their house, they noticed puddling water as the result of seepage in these areas.
Wet crawl spaces may be out of sight and out of mind, but these unhealthy areas can cause a variety of other problems that will affect the rest of the home. Instead of ignoring the problem, the owners wanted to have it fixed right away.
They found Ohio Basement Authority’s website, and they were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. They met with one of our inspectors who assessed the condition of the crawl spaces. He then presented the homeowners with some reliable repair solutions that would transform the crawl spaces.
One of our crews then installed the CrawlDrain drainage system and SafeDri sump pump to waterproof the crawl space. Any seeping water from the crawl space walls and floor will be intercepted and directed to the SafeDri. The SafeDri is equipped with two powerful pumps inside its liner, as well as an external backup battery. These features ensure the SafeDri will always work to pump water out of the crawl space, even if the power goes out.
The crawl spaces were then encapsulated in CrawlSeal liner. Similar to swimming pool liner, CrawlSeal is thick and durable. CrawlSeal completely isolates the crawl spaces from the earth. This liner also acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and it helps insulate the crawl spaces.
The homeowners can rest easier knowing the health of the crawl spaces, as well as the rest of their home, has been enhanced by these trustworthy solutions.
