Do you ever use your cellar? Most people probably very rarely venture down into their cellar. And when they do it's to put things away that there's no room for anywhere else. Even if you only use your cellar for storage, you still want it to be dry. Because of the infrequent nature of visits to the cellar, it means that any instances of damp can really sneak up on you. If you fail to go into the cellar for weeks or even months, a problem you could have easily stopped in the early stages may have progressed drastically. This can be potentially hazardous for the things in storage.
Dampness can damage many items including cardboard boxes and if left long enough cause mould to grow on your possessions. Damp in your cellar can also get to the point where it rises up and affects the other rooms in your house. So it's important to keep an eye on it, or else it can really get out of hand.
