Main Digest

Basements are one of the most common odor producers in the home. There are a number of things that can cause bad smells in this location.

Musty odors are caused by mildew and mold, which grows and thrives in damp locations. A musty odor coming from the basement is most often noticed in spring and fall when utilities aren't running and the windows are closed. To help prevent basement odors be sure to keep your home well ventilated.

The biggest problem with odors in the house is caused by mildew and mold accumulation which can not only cause deterioration of the house but also create health problems like allergies and asthma.
