Do You Have Smelly Odor Problems in the Basement?

What Causes Odors in the Basement?

Basement Odors and SmellsIf you can smell a damp, musty “basement” odor coming up from your basement, it’s not a good thing.  What you are smelling is the out-gassing of fungi such as mold and mildew as they are actively growing. Surfaces like wood, cloth, cardboard, sheetrock, even plastic are all food sources for fungi and if these surfaces have become wet, the table is set for mold and mildew to feast upon! Add humidity levels above 60% and you have a perfect environment for the growth of dust mites and mold.

With the “stack effect” (the natural way air travels through your home) approximately 40% of the air you breathe in your living space comes from the basement or crawlspace. This is why Rescon has researched the health aspects of moist damp air rising through the home.

Don’t wait to rectify basement odors and their underlying causes. The long term effects on your basement can be extremely damaging to your home. Including;

  • Personal Health
  • Personal Stored Items
  • Structural Damage to wood framing
  • Resale

“Rescon was amazing! They were extremely clean and efficient. Dillon and his team explained every step of the process, were very courteous, and for such a nosy, messy, dirty job made us feel like they were barely even there. Chris, the owner, came to the job site and once again made sure we were happy. It was also great to see him interact with his team, give guidance, and be helpful rather than just shout orders. Overall a great experience!”
