Moisture coming through redwood subfloor


Hi,

I have a Victorian turn of the century home. I ripped out old carpet and refinished original plank redwood subfloor in my bedroom. Beautiful but huge mold problem in that room. Aside from larger fixes, what are folk's thoughts about putting rugs on top? I just pulled out large room sized rug for cleaning and its holding lots of moisture/smells moldy. Same question with heavy curtains. Are rugs and curtains trapping moisture and giving mold place to grow? Would I be better off letting it "breathe"? Temperature is not much of an issue, it rarely gets below 40 degrees here, especially this "winter."

Thanks!

Moisture coming through redwood subfloor


Need to figure out where the moisture's coming from.
Crawl space, basement under it?
If there's a crawl space is there a moisture barrier on the ground?
Moisture issues in the basement?
