Important Facts and Data To Understand
  • 1
  • The potential for moisture problems exists anywhere building components are below grade, whether you have a basement, crawlspace, or slab-on-grade foundation
  • Start drying the basement as quickly as possible in order to minimize wood decay or growth of mold. 2
  • If you need to correct moisture problems in your existing home, consult a qualified builder, basement designer, and/or insulation contractor in your area for specific basement moisture control measures tailored to your climate, type of insulation, and construction style.
  • Basements flooded with surface water, seepage through walls, or backflow from sewer lines often suffer little or no structural damage from the water, because the water inside braces the walls against the pressure of outside water and waterlogged soil.
  • Mold exists everywhere; there are no indoor spaces without mold. However, without sufficient moisture, mold cannot grow. If mold is growing, too much moisture is present. 3
  • Moisture causes problems for building owners, maintenance personnel and occupants. Many common moisture problems can be traced to poor decisions in design, construction or maintenance.
