Have you ever walked into a basement and wondered what that smell was? Perhaps you were cleaning out a closet in a long-forgotten corner of the house and noticed a smell that was just off? If there was a bad odor that you just couldn’t place, the culprit was likely mold growing. Most basements have that musty aroma, as do closets that do not get a lot of regular use. Many equate the smell of mold to what you smell when you open a dusty book that has been sitting on the shelves for years.
One thing to keep in mind about mold is that it spreads by spores. If you have mold in one area of your home, chances are, you have it in several. This is due to simply turning on the heat or air conditioning vents, as this blows the spores into every corner of your home.
If you notice the smell of mold, it is incredibly important that you seek out mold remediation services as soon as possible.
