Inside the windows on the floor there is mold and a water there was alot of slugs which i removed. I removed old timbers as was shelving there ( orginally a potting shed )[]and im left with bare floor and wall. How can i keep this area dry? Do i need to seal outside wall or something? Or a dehumudifier there for a few hrs every day?

Hi

Would be useful to see a picture of the whole internal wall as well as the outside.

I'm no expert but the damp could be coming up through the concrete floor and the timbers soaked it up over time?

I am assuming that the construction is single skin blockwork and a DPC does not seem to be evident.
The use of a dehumidifier would not help, but external render with a damp-proofing adative would prevent further rain pentration through the walls. But you could still have 'rising damp' problems through not having a DPC.
