The cellar or basement of any building is particularly vulnerable to damp simply due to the fact that it is below ground level.
Walls and floors that retain earth will experience intense hydrostatic pressure when the earth becomes saturated with water. This pressure will force the water to penetrate any cracks or pores in the structure of your basement or cellar.
How serious is a damp cellar? If it is not being used for storage or to live in for example, then dampness might not seem like a big deal. However, the cellar also provides the foundation on which your property lies. So, if the cellar develops a serious damp issue it can cause structural problems.
