Are you noticing a new odor when you walk into your home? The sudden arrival of a musty, damp scent in the spring or summer months can be alarming — especially when it seems to come out of nowhere.
Excessive moisture is a common occurrence within Vermont and New Hampshire homes, and can be caused by normal activities like cooking or taking a hot shower. It can also arise from something a little more sinister, like leaks or gaps in your home’s building envelope that let in outdoor humidity.
The most common cause of dampness, however, is a wet basement. Water can easily infiltrate your house’s foundation and enable mold growth, causing that unpleasant, musty smell to permeate your home.
How To Get Rid of The Musty Smell in Your Basement
Once you can smell mold, the problem is already established and will need to be addressed quickly. The trouble is, just because you notice water or excessive moisture in one place in your basement, the smell could be coming from another undetectable location.
