The basement is a perfect spot in your house for additional finished space, but only if the basement is dry. However if your basement is wet it turns into a wasted space, or even into a source of moisture and mold. Moister can damage health of your house and family.

The key source of basement problems is aqueous vapor. As the foundation walls get enclosed by wood, when finishing the basement, aqueous vapor turns into a real issue. Thus, your perfect family space – finished basement might hide major mold problems, even if foundation of your house is dry.
