The key is first finding the source of the water - can be from damp basemetn or crawlspace underneath, leaking pipes, water in walls from a roof or siding or window leak, condensation from air conditioning ducts (either leaking from inside the duct or condensing on bare duct outside surface during high household humidity periods), excessive house humidity from lack of bathroom ventilation or high water output from cooking or plants, etc.


If you have not lived in this house for a substantial period of time so don't know if this is a "new" problem, can also be due to inadequate closet ventilation with doors closed.
