‘My Hillside Garage Stays Moist and Mold — What Can I Do?’

Danny and Joe welcome callers’ questions each week on the Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

Here’s a question from our Sept. 28 broadcast:


Lenora in Virginia says, “My garage is built into a hillside. It is made of brick. It has a concrete floor that collects excessive moisture and molds everything inside.

“How can I control this moisture without running a dehumidifier 24/7? I was thinking to use a concrete sealer and seal bricks and concrete from the inside or possibly cutting a hole in the garage door and installing a fan. 

“What is your idea? Please help. All my tools and car are getting moldy.”

We tell Lenora to clean the walls with TSP, then put two light coats of Drylok on the walls and floor.
