Cold Cellar Wet Ceiling
In my cold cellar I am having a water issue with the ceiling. It is either from condensation or a leak. The cold cellar is in the basement located below my front porch.
I have noticed that the piece of plywood in the ceiling is constantly wet, is it safe to remove the plywood? I think it is just a matter of time before mold will appear. I have read older postings that the wood in the cold cellar is not structural and are used to only make a form so the concrete can be poured.
So I have a few questions.
1. Can the plywood in the ceiling and the rest of the 2x4 be removed?
2. What solutions would I have to mount the ceiling light after all the wood is removed?
3. How can I find out if the water from the ceiling is from condensation or a leak?
I have attached some photos of my cold cellar.
