While they rarely venture into the partial crawl space adjacent to their basement, homeowners in Blacklick, OH, were tired of the unhealthy conditions in this area of their home. They noticed a problem with mice, and they had a feeling these unwelcome rodents were making their homes in the crawl space.
They have lived in their house for a little more than one year, and they wanted to fix this problem once and for all. After seeing some of Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads, they were motivated to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. After meeting with one of our inspectors who thoroughly evaluated the condition of the crawl space, the owners were eager for one of our crews to transform the nasty crawl space.
The crew started by carefully removing the unhealthy floor liner, insulation and other debris. Then the floor was covered with thick drainage matting to enhance the durability of the encapsulation material. The crawl space was then encapsulated in CrawlSeal liner. Very similar to swimming pool liner, CrawlSeal is thick and durable. It completely seals the crawl space from the earth, acting as a moisture and vapor barrier that also helps insulate the crawl space. Vent covers also were placed on the home’s exterior to further seal the crawl space.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing these reliable solutions have helped them create a safer and healthier living environment.
