If you’ve ever walked into a musty garage or dank basement and felt like you’ve been punched in the nose with a damp or dirty-sock-like smell, there’s a chance its mold or mildew.
Often found in damp environments where mold spores thrive, mold and mildew can grow in the right conditions in as little as 24 hours — some people say it smells like rotting wood. That’s why it’s best to hustle if you catch a whiff in your gym bag or basement.
Find the root of the problem
It’s not always easy to pinpoint the smell of mold, so if it’s not something obvious like your gym bag, look for leaks.
Water damage and the discoloration of drywall or ceilings is a good indicator where moisture could enter and cause the issue. If it looks like serious damage, you might want to call a professional — just remember to get a few quotes before pulling the trigger on work. But if it’s something like windowsills, which is a mold common spot, you can probably take care of that yourself.
Consider using fans to circulate the air or use a dehumidifier to suck up moisture to start the odor removal process.
