Removing moisture from basement due to condensation

Joseph Coupal - Friday, March 05, 2010

Sometimes homes are constructed so tightly that there is not  enough or proper airflow.  If you have central air conditioning, you can install additional vents that lead into your basement. This is relatively easy and should help a minor moisture problem. You can also use an exhaust fan to help remove moisture and create additional airflow. Remember, for the basement to have proper airflow, the air must have room to move. If you have a lot of clutter, it might be time to have a yard sale, a garage sale or remove the clutter.

Installing a dehumidifier will probably do the trick. This is a very proactive and practical way to remove moisture from the air in your basement. To determine if your basement needs a dehumidifier, see whether you have any of the following conditions:

  • Condensation on the windows
  • Mold
  • Musty smells and stuffiness
  • Rotting wood
  • Wet stains on ceilings or walls
