Why does everyone cough when they stay in my basement?
I'm about finished with a remodel that includes an addition to my kitchen and, in the space below the kitchen, a guest room. The guest room is on the basement level, but it is a walk out, in other words, level with the ground outside.
My teenage kids stayed there when out of town guest have been in thier rooms. They have been complainging that it is too dry, they wake up coughing. When I go down there I sometimes feel like my throut is itchy.
I really don't think that it's dry down there. It has been raining a lot, and the heat has not been on so high because it's not been that cold lately.
What can this be? Who could I call for help? Can someone tell term for this that I can use in order to search for information?
