Dampness

Hi. What can I do to prevent dampness and mold (walls and floors) with the downstairs living area? There is a deck built on the upstairs living area on the one corner of the house. Both my entrance doors are under this area and this is exactly where there is always dampness and mold. When it rains (which is almost every day) the water drips through the upstairs deck onto this area. The sun doesn't get to dry out this area under the deck and it causes the dampness to penetrate the walls as well which makes the inside of the rooms very cold and moldy. I am always sick with respiratory problems. Does anyone know of something I can attach to the underside of the deck to channel the water away?
