We were told that we should use tarps or something similar to prevent
moisture in our basement crawlspace. We were told that we should put
them on the ceiling of the basement, as well as over the stone floor.
This was told to us by the home inspector when we bought our house
about three months ago. The basement is bone dry right now, but there
is a fan down there and a dehumidifier that is working on the lowest
Is it neccessary to put these 'tarps' up/down? If it matter, we live
in a 14 years old house, in the middle of the forest, in NE PA. We
have a sort of pond/swamp about 75 feet from the back of the house.
Also, there were some boxes down there that had very little mold on
Thanks for any help or info!
