How do you get rid of that "musky" smell?
A- There are quite a few options available to you. The musky smell is caused by moisture and bacteria. It is important to make sure your basement is well ventilated. Check the drainage around your house and try to landscape the water away from the house as much as possible. It may also be advisable to have a dehumidifier installed. This is a machine that actually pulls the water out of the air. Once you have these things done, the selection of the proper padding and carpet is crucial. There are some pads that will actually resist the growth of bacteria. So when you start the decision process on selecting you flooring, it is important to select an anti-bacterial carpet pad that is specifically made to be resistant to bacteria growth. This way it is neutralized before it can grow and start to smell. There are also carpets that are infused with colloidal silver. The colloidal silver kills the bacteria and keeps the room smelling fresh. These are premium carpets and they are offered in a variety of styles and colors. With these techniques and all of the different varieties and different styles available to you, you will be able to have a beautiful basement free from that annoying musky smell.
