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? It is bad enough if the cellar is being used for storage and your stuff gets wet, but consider the fact that the cellar also provides the foundation on which your property lies. If the cellar develops a serious damp issue it can cause structural problems.
A properly waterproofed cellar can be used for almost any function from a dry and safe storage area to a habitable space like an office or spare room. A good quality cellar conversion can also improve the value of a property significantly.
