Preventing mold in a fieldstone basement
November 4, 2005 9:14 AM Subscribe
Our 100+ year old house has a fieldstone basement with no mortar between the stones. Water doesn't flood or drip in, but the walls are always a little damp. Black mold is beginning to grow down there, and we'd like to stop it.

We've been told that actually waterproofing the basement is not an option. (Although if that's wrong — if there's a cheap, reliable way of waterproofing it — I'd love know know.)
If there's always going to be a little moisture down there, how can we deal with the mold?
