What is a Cold Room?

A cold room (also known as a cellar or a storage room) in a house is typically a small, unheated space or storage area located within the house. It is usually situated in the basement or a lower level where the temperature is naturally cooler. The purpose of a cold room in a residential setting is to provide a cool environment for storing food, beverages, and other items that require a lower temperature but don't necessarily need to be frozen. It can be used for preserving fresh produce, canned goods, wines, or other perishable items that benefit from being kept at a cooler temperature.


Why Repair Cold Room Walls?

Why Get Cold Room Waterproofing or Encapsulation?

Located underground, cold rooms are prone to water leaks, wall and floor cracks, high humidity, mold growth and wet basement problems. Cold room waterproofing or encapsulation is vital to maintain the functionality, efficiency, and longevity of the storage space while ensuring the safety and quality of the stored items.


  • Moisture control - cold rooms are prone to condensation due to the temperature difference between the inside and outside. Waterproofing helps to prevent water leakage, seepage, or excessive moisture buildup, which can lead to mold growth, rotting of materials, and damage to stored goods.

  • Energy efficiency - waterproofing cold rooms ensures better insulation, preventing air leakage and reducing energy consumption. When cold air escapes and warm air enters, the refrigeration system has to work harder to maintain the desired temperature, leading to increased energy costs. Proper encapsulation helps to maintain the cold room's temperature and overall efficiency.

  • Hygiene and cleanliness - waterproofing products like sealants or coatings create a smooth and impermeable surface that is easier to clean and maintain. This helps to prevent the accumulation of dirt, grime, or bacteria, ensuring a hygienic environment for storing food, beverages, or other sensitive items.

  • Protection of stored goods – waterproofing, encapsulation, dehumidifier installation and other services will safeguard the quality and integrity of the goods stored in the cold room. It prevents moisture-related damage, such as spoilage, loss of flavor, or deterioration of packaging materials. This is particularly important for perishable products that require a controlled environment for preservation.
