Your house may look stunning from outside but the people would never know what the condition is like inside. Many houses have been found to have damp basements which are quite a nuisance for any house owner. One of the major disadvantages of a damp basement is that if there is water in the backfilled earth and if that earth is loose it is guaranteed that your basement will be subject to dampness some day or the other. So get rid of that watery earth that lies around your house’s basement.
Another point that you must know is that humid air is the main reason for the growth of molds which in turn makes way for a damp basement because molds grow in places where they find a bit of dampness. Thirdly if there is anything leaking in your basement then it is sure that the belongings that you have in the underground will get wet or will have a chance to get flooded by the dampness sooner or later.
