The first step to take in general is for you to address the following issues when remodeling your home.
Too much moisture in a home can lead to mold, mildew, and other biological growth. This in turn can lead to a variety of health effects ranging from more common allergic reactions, to asthma attacks, and hypersensitivity pneumonitits, for example. Excess moisture can be in the form of high relative humidity including humidity generated by people and their activities such as showers, cooking, or drying clothes. Water can also come from plumbing leaks, wet shoes, or splashing around sinks. Moisture can travel with infiltrating outdoor air (or ex-filtrating indoor air) through the building shell, including the foundation.
