    • Open basement windows during warm weather, close when weather is damp.
    • Have outside venting for kitchen, bath and utility areas.
    • Adjust the humidifier, if there is one in your heating system.
    • Consider installing a dehumidifier in extremely damp areas.
    • Check sumps periodi...
