Many people dislike the musty smell of a basement, while some actually love it. Hate it or love it, the truth is that it’s an alarm for potential danger and it needs to be removed. You may find this musty smell not only in your basement but also in other rooms around your home. If you can smell it there’s a high chance that black mold and mildew are finding your place cozy and with perfect conditions to survive. They probably want to stay around, settle, and grow their population. That's something you can't allow!
