The Source of Musty Basement Odors 

The basement is often left untouched and undisturbed in most homes. If you have an unfinished basement, it can be prone to excessive humidity. 

How to tell if your basement is unfinished? Unfinished basement areas have no insulation installed. You can typically tell because the floor above the basement might be cold to the touch and may even be colder by a few degrees than the rest of your home. 

With no insulation system in place, your basement becomes a trap for moisture. Mold thrives in high humidity environments with low to no direct sunlight exposure. Mold spores can travel through the air, creating a distinctive musty odor. 

The Problem with Musty Basement Odors

Musty smells disrupt your home peace and affect the quality of your life at home. Firstly, a bad odor can have a negative impact on your mood and your comfort. If you are distracted by musty smells, you will unlikely find your home welcoming and enjoyable. Whether you are a homeowner or a landlord, a musty odor can dramatically affect the value of your property. 

Musty odors are the result of mold spores traveling in the air. Mold spores are an allergen that can cause allergic reactions and respiratory discomfort in vulnerable individuals, young children, and older adults. Excessive mold exposure can also lead to headaches, loss of concentration, and sleep disorders. 

To improve your living environment, you need to target the source of the smell. Unfortunately, store-bought mold removal products often fail to provide a long-term solution. The mold can come back, and with it, the musty odor reappears. Discover some of the advantages for your health and your home of working with a professional company like FIRESTONE Restoration for musty basement odor removal.
