To Mimi and others,

MAJOR problem plague finding cause(s), SUCH AS - your house(s)’s roofing (esp. 
shared adjoining - on twins), deteriorating walls, poorly sealed / silled 
windows, blocked or leaking of spouts and drains, various conditions of 
grounds, under-ground water table(s), too much or too little vegetation - SO 
many possible contributing factors… 

Might a swimming pool or a fruit tree be of interest to you???

If I had to be GUESSING here, I’d probably check the footings first!  

Also, if they are at issue, molds, rodents, and/or damaging bugs could seize on 
the opportunity and thereby invade harming more!!…  

Will send names off-line.
