 Don't set them on the ground and I keep some desicent(sp?) inside.
That is what I've done. I have two of those small driers.
I add stuff to them about once every month in the winter.
One could also seal the floor but you still want ventilated air
between the wood floor and the soil.
 I've had it for two winters and not seen any problems yet.
I am in California but it is in the mountains where there is
a lot of rain.
