Musty Smell in Your Basement?

What is that horrible odor in my basement? You smell a musty odor in your basement. It's repulsive. You scrub and clean your home for hours every day in the hope to remove the terrible odor but no amount of cleaning seems to work. A musty smelling basement is a real problem. A musty basement is an odor that can truly make an otherwise attractive home appear as a dirty dwelling. The musty odor will keep family and friends from visiting your home. You will find it more challenging to enjoy your home. How did these musty odors get inside my home? Musty basement odors are caused by moisture/water entering your basement through various weak spots. This moisture then supplies a food source for Mold and Fungus which intern release smelly unhealthy spores. You may need to hire a professional waterproofing company to stop this water intrusion. During the winter season more time is spent indoors and with windows, doors and openings being sealed tight, unpleasant and unhealthy spore odors will become harder to tolerate. Where does the musty basement odor originate from? Basement Mold and Fungus odors develop when a source of moisture/water accumulates in your basement walls, floor and stored items. Once this moisture/water builds up, the indoor environment remains damp and musty, a perfect breeding ground for mold and fungus. To remove these musty basement odors, the source of water intrusion must be eliminated. The musty basement odor can be eliminated in 3 ways:
  1. Have Ameri-Dry® waterproof your entire basement
  2. Install a dehumidifier
  3. Correct basement condensation problems (usually from cold pipes dripping on the basement floor).
