What do you do with a dirt floor in the basement?
We just bought a house which was built in 1910. I'm having the basement waterproofed. While they were digging the trenches, the workmen discovered that a portion of my basement floor is still dirt. (We all thought it was just yucky from the standing water and hundred years of filth.) The floor is not level. I'm afraid to put anything on top of the dirt because it will draw moisture, but I want to use the basement for storage. Any ideas?
