Re: [Chrysler300] moisture buildup on concrete floot

We used to put a plastic drop cloth under the cars and as the frost started coming out of the ground Denny would run a large floor fan day and night until we no longer had a moist floor.  We haven’t used the drop cloth for a few years and with the floor fan going it really does seem to lessen the condensation on the floor.  Later, he started leaving the fan on through the fall, just to keep the garage cooler so we could work in some comfort.

You can run a dehumidifier in the garage to lower the humidity if the garage is closed up tight and that is what causing the garage to be humid. If the garage is ventilated to keep the inside temperature and outside temperature more even it will prevent condensation by keeping the concrete closer in temperature to the air. Sealing the floor could also help with moisture entering through the slab. Most building codes want poly installed below the slab to prevent moisture coming up through. Not an option at this point.  I have two garages ten feet apart and the one with poly under the slab and the floor sealed never gets damp while the other one does all the time in the summer.
