If you’re considering finishing or remodeling your basement, it’s important that you first solve humidity or dampness problems. Finishing your basement without dealing with these issues can leave you with mold and mildew problems and expensive rot and structural damage. Even if you aren’t finishing your basement, this is a problem that should be addressed since it can turn into a much more costly problem down the road.
Basement condensation is a common problem that’s caused when warm, moist air comes in contact with the cool surface of the walls. As the walls cool the air, water droplets form on the walls, giving you a damp basement.
The source of your damp basement problem could be a water leak or moisture coming through the concrete foundation. Water can also come from a leaking pipe, toilet, sink or shower. High humidity from cooking, showering and drying clothes can also make your basement damp.
Insulating the basement walls prevents the moist air from coming in contact with the cool walls, stopping condensation from forming in the summer. Basement wall insulation also helps keep the heat you paid for from escaping to the outdoors in the winter.
