Do You Have Smelly Odor Problems in the Basement?
What Causes Odors in the Basement?
If you smell a musty or damp smell in your basement or and smell coming up from your basement, it’s not a good thing. What you are smelling is the fungi’s gas being released such as mold and mildew as they are actively growing.
Surfaces like wood, sheetrock and even plastic are all feeding places for fungi and if these surfaces ever become wet, mold and mildew will feast upon them!
Add humidity levels above 60% and you have a perfect environment for the growth of dust mites and mold.
