The musty smell associated with many basements is often a strong indication of a mold problem in the area."

Basements are a common feature of homes and commercial buildings in many parts of the country.  While basements often provide additional living space and convenient storage, they are also frequently the source of unpleasant odors.
 
The musty smell associated with many basements is often a strong indication of a mold problem in the area.  Since basements frequently suffer from water and moisture problems, they can develop mold issues that can spread and cause concern for other areas of the home or building.  Mold can produce volatile compounds that are readily released into the air.  These unpleasant odors are known as microbial volatile organic compounds or mVOCs. The health effects of inhaling mVOCs are largely unknown, although exposure to these compounds has been linked to symptoms such as headaches, nasal irritation, dizziness, fatigue and nausea.
 
Aside from obvious flooding scenarios, moisture can enter a basement in many ways.  Some of the more common sources include moisture entering through wall or floor cracks, mortar joints or by bleeding and sweating into the basement.  Other sources include condensation on pipes that are not insulated and even clothes dryers that are not properly vented to the outside.
 
“Mold growing in a basement could pose health concerns for not only people who spend time in the basement, but any airborne mold spores and mVOCs could potentially spread throughout the property through the HVAC system or other means,” reports Chris Heller with FastMoldRemoval.com, a leading supplier of mold prevention and remediation products.   “If mold is discovered, MMR mold stain remover, MPI antimicrobial, HydroKlenz and ProClear are the products of choice used by mold remediation professionals to remove and prevent mold growth in basements from coast to coast.”
