Things you can do to protect your basement from moisture:
- Add a dehumidifier
- If there is water coming up from below, put a sump pump in.
- I found a water detector. It will actually call or text your cell phone if it detects water. This is a new product that I found that has quite a bit of merit. Not only will it detect water, but it will also tell you if the temperature of your house is below freezing.
