Odors and smells within a home not only cause discomfort but can also be the result of bigger problems such as excessive moisture in the air and mold. Mold in a home can cause headaches, nasal irritation, dizziness, fatigue, and nausea. The main culprit of lingering, unpleasant odors in a home is the lack of proper ventilation and poor air quality.

Keep Basement Smells and Basement Odors At Bay
Indoor odors are caused by both natural and man-made sources.
Basement smells and basement odors are often the first indicator of mold and water damage. To start, look into dark, damp, and warm places like crawlspaces, attics, basement, and even your bathroom. Mold will also thrive on porous materials with excess moisture, such as wood, drywall, carpeting, cement, and sheetrock.
Symptoms of Poor Quality Air
Every house has its own unique smells that reflect the nature of the home and those who live in it. Sometimes there are factors that change that smell, one of those being mold. Mold does not always have a strong smell but when it is present, it’s often described as a “musty basement smell”.
Another good idea would be to find the source of the mold: most likely from water damage but what caused that? Sources like leaking pipes, appliances, roofing, cracks in the foundation, sewage backups, melting snow, etc. will all result in water damage and musty smells in the end. Removing or repairing water-damaged materials can easily become difficult, especially if it involves physically challenging tasks, such as removing carpet, drywall, or large contents.
One of the most common reasons for pungent basement smells is excess water. Because of how they’re situated, and because they generally get little light, basements are often damp. That moisture generally doesn’t evaporate or dry out by itself. This excess moisture can quickly become fetid, particularly where small puddles form. In addition, the moisture can cause rot and mold, both of which can smell.
If your basement walls look dry this is not a sign that humidity is not entering your basement. If you’ve ever owned a potted plant, you know that the surface can be dry even when the pot is heavy with water. This is because the moisture is pulled out by the air as soon as it rises up and eventually can cause basement smells that are very unpleasant.
These odors can be removed by improving the home’s ventilation, purifying the air and being aware of everyday activities. A home’s odor problem can be caused by a variety of sources including:
- Dust mites
- Animal dander
- Cat saliva
