Smells can be good, bad or problematic. When problematic smells occur- call SERVPRO. We have the knowledge to locate the source of the odor and then know exactly how to remove the unwanted odor.

I have a musty smell in my house what is it?

Storm damage can lead to odors and mold.

This is a question we answer a lot. Mold is everywhere. The concern is when there is high levels of mold with your home. There are some precautionary steps you can follow.

1. Do you have a vapor barrier installed in your crawlspace? Are your basement wall leaking?  Install a 6 mil plastic in at least 90% of your crawlspace and keep the foundation vents open for air flow. If water is intruding from your basement walls, consider a French drain, or waterproofing the exterior walls.

2. Inspect the perimeter of your home for clogged gutters, put PVC tube extensions on the downspouts to direct water away from the foundation, remove  dead leaves and yard debris from the homes foundation

3. Bathroom exhaust fan should be ran while taking a shower and then at least 20 minutes after to help decrease the humidity.

4. Buy a thermometer with a humidity reading to monitor the indoor humidity level . Mold likes to grow with humidity above 60%
