My wife and I just purchased our first home which is approximately 80 yrs
old. The basement floor seems to be damp. The thing is that much of the
dampness is located in the centre of the floor. Its as if the uneven
concrete floor is acting like a sponge. There does appear to be 2 leaks on
either side of the house which I will have to fix but I can't figure out why
the centre of the floor is damp. There is also quite a bit of dampness
around our furnace. I realize that I may be a little vague here but any
ideas are much appreciated!!
