I am renovating a house that I was given by my grandparents. I was pulling up the carpet to get to the wood flooring beneath it and noticed that the carpet was damp. I found a spot in the floor closest to the outside wall that is rotten. Upon further investigation I found that the ground (dirt) is only about a foot from the bottom of the floor. I really don’t want to tear up the whole floor since it is old wood and is in good condition throughout the rest of the room but I really need to fix the moisture problem. The house is built on a steep hill and that is the room closest to the top. The moisture is bad enough I think I am getting mold in the walls(which I know I am going to have tear out and replace after a good cleaning. Can you give me any suggestions on how to fix this? I don’t have a whole lot of money to spend but I can save up for it if something drastic needs done. Thanks!
