Eliminating Moldy & Musty Odors
For all of us — especially those with asthma, allergies, and other health conditions — indoor air quality is a key factor to control. If you are noticing moldy or musty smells, this is likely an indication of water damage somewhere in your home, which could also indicate mold growth. Mold spores can easily travel through your air ducts and circulate throughout your home or commercial building — potentially causing health risks to everyone inside. Even just a small patch of rotting wood or drywall, a too-humid crawl space, or mold behind your tiles can affect the air in your entire space. Much of the time, we find these odors originate from lower levels like the crawl space or basement (two areas where most homeowners don’t inspect regularly). Here at USS, we are known for our basement waterproofing and crawl space repair services in Nashville, and we’ll fix up your home and clean up your air with ease.
Moldy, musty smells aren’t something that you should just “get used to.” These can be signs that your humidity is too high and/or that there is something wrong with the structure of your home. Often when we find the source of the odor, we also uncover leaks or flooding damage, wood rot, insects, and other issues. Don’t just cover up the smells with air fresheners and scented candles. Come to USS and let us get to the bottom of it! Reach out to schedule your free estimate today.
