How do you deal with damp, dirt-floor basements?
I've been in this house 30 years, and only in the past few has the basement been a problem. I had to have a section of the living room floor replaced because it had buckled from moisture. The dirt basement floor seems permanently damp and gets slick in spots.
Some areas have big slabs of rock on top of the dirt, but they can get a little slick, too. It just seems like a very unhealthy environment down there, and I'm wondering if there is something I could do about it.
