A demo at the 2017 HPBZWhat It's About:

Moisture problems in existing homes can usually be traced to faulty drainage and improperly water-proofed foundations. And since basements and crawlspaces serve as the air intakes for leaky houses, the result is often bad indoor air quality. Our experts will explain the science of good moisture management and show the proper techniques for achieving it.
