I'm currently living in a new build in Ottawa Ontario for which I took possession in February 2020 ( I've been here for about 5 months ). The humidity levels in my basement have gone gangbusters in the past couple of months. I currently have 2 dehumidifiers running full throttle 24/7 to keep the RH at around 50%.
Without these machines running I've seen the RH climb up to the mid 70s.
I thought I had it under control, until I saw water inside the vapour barrier.
The builder told me it was because the cement isn't completely cured yet... Is this true? My understanding was that cement took around 30 days to cure.
Note that the landscaping isn't done yet, so the grading isn't right and we don't have any eavestroughing as of yet.
Should I be concerned about mold? I feel like they are pulling on fast one on me... I had plans to finish the basement ( Seal the floors, put up drywall etc). Any advice?
