Crawl Space Problem Signs in Akron, OH


Keep an eye out for common crawl space problem signs such as mold, pests, and high humidity. Catching these early can help avoid serious damage and costly repairs, keeping your home safe and sound.

Also, pay attention to less obvious problems like odd smells, standing water, and damaged insulation, which could indicate hidden issues. Regular checks and upkeep are essential for spotting these early and keeping your home environment healthy and secure.

Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Akron, OH

Crawl space issues in Akron are primarily influenced by the local soil composition and climatic conditions. The area’s clay-rich soil, when combined with Akron’s significant yearly precipitation — 38 inches of rain and 42 inches of snow — can lead to increased stress on crawl spaces. This moisture can cause the ground to swell and exert pressure on foundation walls, resulting in potential flooding and structural damage within the crawl space.

Additionally, the natural aging process of materials can lead to deterioration, such as tears in vapor barriers. These vapor barriers are crucial for maintaining a dry environment, and when they fail, moisture can seep in more easily, promoting mold growth, wood rot, and increased humidity levels. Over time, fluctuating temperatures and moisture levels can also weaken the structural integrity of the crawl space, leading to more serious issues like foundation settlement or buckling floors.

Regular inspection and maintenance are vital to identifying these problems early and addressing them before they escalate into more severe and costly repairs. Understanding these risks and taking proactive steps can help preserve the safety and integrity of your Akron home.

Your technician Chris Shewell did the annal maintenance inspection for our basement waterproofing system installed last year. He was very thorough and set up the air system for a more efficient flow and relocated the control panel to a more convenient location on top. He explained how the air system could be put in an enclosure with ducting if we so desired. He told me the average life span I could expect for the pump backup battery and a replacement during the warranty period needs to be done by OBS to insure proper installation. Very appreciated information. We were quite pleased with the 5 star service he provided. Scott and Joanne Krebs

Their service people are always great. Today their technician David Farson came out to look at my basement dehumidifier (which I totally depend on). He was timely, efficient, and very courteous. He explained and went over everything. I really appreciate people you can rely on.

My salesman Kevin was fantastic at coming out and determining how best to handle a situation I was having at the house. He described his recommendations and listened to my concerns and ensured they were written into the contract. The foreman John and co-foreman William were absolutely great when it came time to do the work. They kept me posted on progress all through the job and finished ahead of schedule! They took the time to show me specifically what had been done and made sure before they left the house was cleaned up and I had no further questions for them. All in all fantastic work by the whole team, would definitely recommend working with the team again.

The business was responsive to my needs, communicated clearly and promptly. The team (Wynn and Mike) that did the work was efficient and thorough. They told me what to expect (noise, time). They did the work then explained it to me in a way that I can understand. They cleaned up and left the place cleaner than it was before. Wynn and Mike did an excellent job, I am glad that I went with Ohio Basement Systems.

Our crawlspace was the source of a great deal of humidity our house. Ohio Basement Systems covered the earthen floor with thick plastic sheeting, secured at the top edges to the foundation. They also installed a dehumidifier in the crawspace to help dry out the structure and maintain lower humidity.One year later, during an annual inspection (included in initial cost) we asked that the dehumidifier be repositioned — it was in contact with floor joists and, when running, causing an annoying vibration throughout the house. Technician Alex D. was able to resolve the issue and the house is now not only drier but quieter than before. We are very happy with the work done.

Ohio Basement Systems sent Kevin out to look at our basement to see what we needed to do about our mini flooding. He was so professional and was able to get us financed at a reasonable rate and payment plan.The team of professionals they sent to do the job was so professional, understanding, and seemed like genuine people to have in your home. I was thoroughly impressed with their work. They work very well as a team. They are super respectful. They speak and greet you with a smile. They were fast and efficient. They even cleaned up after themselves. They were patient with explaining everything so I understood what their job entailed. They did such good work and I was so pleased I wanted to rave about their service.If you are needing anything done Ohio Basement Systems is your company, and be SURE to request by name the team of: Sean, Justin, and Ferro. They are a really, really, a good team. Since I have owned my home for a year their team work and presence was the best I have had in my home thus far. God forbid I need anything else done I am definitely be requesting them by name.
