What is Crawl Space Drainage? 

Crawl space drainage installed by Ohio Basement Authority is unlike standard pipes; it is a 4-inch-thick corrugated and perforated pipe encapsulated within a silt sock. 

When installed within a crawl space, it is placed in precision-dug trenches and surrounded by gravel. This acts as a filtration system, preventing clogging and ensuring smooth groundwater drainage to a sump pump system. 

Along with crawl space encapsulation, insulation, and dehumidification, crawl space drainage works to maintain the structural integrity of your home by effectively managing the moisture levels in your crawl space.

Signs You Need Crawl Space Drainage 

To ensure your home remains in top condition, it’s vital to quickly spot any signs of crawl space damage. Early detection reduces both the extent of the damage and repair costs, helping to keep your crawl space well-maintained.

Keep an eye out for these warning signs:

Dirty, wet crawl space.

These signs indicate moisture problems that can lead to significant issues if left unchecked. Don’t hesitate to reach out to your local crawl space repair professionals for assistance when you notice these problems.

Is Crawl Space Drainage Necessary? 

Yes, crawl space drainage is necessary. Unaddressed problems will only worsen over time, allowing more water to enter and cause damage. 

We do not recommend DIY crawl space inspection or drainage installation, as it can be a delicate and dangerous area. If you notice any of the above problem signs, it’s important to contact crawl space encapsulation experts like Ohio Basement Authority for a thorough inspection and professional repair installation. 

Acting early to prevent water damage saves you money and protects your home long-term.
