Historically, cellars and basements have benefited from ventilation via coal shutes and the airing of the space due to daily activities for example bringing coal into the upper levels of the building for heating and cooking etc. However, cellars and basements are invariably visibly damp due to the very nature of the construction and the placement of such walling in a subterranean environment.
