How Do You Keep Your Basement from Smelling?

If you have a smelly basement and it isn’t due to a teenager who has overstayed their welcome, there is a simple solution.  Control the humidity.

According to Achooallergy.com, Mold loves humidity and areas that are damp and dark.  Mold hates it when the humidity is between 40-50%.  If you are able to maintain your humidity at that level, then mold will stop growing.  By keeping your humidity in that range, not only will you prevent mold from spreading but you will also do the same for bacteria, viruses, fungi, and mites.

By controlling your humidity at the 40-50% level, not only will you have a more comfortable environment but a healthier one as well.

Whole home dehumidifiers will keep the entire house at a comfortable humidity level and keep the mold under control.
