Damp Humid Basement

A damp, humid basement can cost you a lot of money. Not only can you lose living space, but it can be a breeding area for mold and mildew to thrive. A wet basement can also make your energy bills much higher. A damp, humid basement can be caused by several reasons such as:

  • mold in a wet basementWater trickling out of walls
  • Standing water on the floor
  • Saturated base of concrete block walls— a ring of dampness
  • Condensation on cold walls and floor in summer
  • Wet carpet or wood
  • Wet wood headers, joists, sill plates, and columns
  • Wet wall covering
  • Wet concrete or masonry

Water will find its way into your basement through any small crack it can find. Don’t let a damp and humid basement cause you to experience all of the unpleasant consequences that it causes. If you see water in your basement, this is an obvious sign of a damp basement. However, there are other indications that you may have a humid basement. Some of the things to be aware of are:

  • Musty odors
  • High humidity throughout your home
  • Rusty appliances
  • Insect infestation
  • Condensation on pipes
