“Dear PoPville,

I recently moved into a basement apartment and this morning, I found that my floor was covered in water. I don’t think there was a flood, rather, intense moisture and condensation that resulted in standing water all over my floor, soaking belongings (including my floor lamp, which I then unplugged from the wall). This is my first basement apartment, so I was wondering if this was a common issue with basement apartments and if there was anything I can do to remedy the problem (such as purchase a dehumidifier). I really do not want to have to move again, but I’m afraid of ruining all my possessions! Thanks.”
