My basement stinks. Is that normal?

Posted on December 15, 2016 in Blog

My basement stinks. Is that normal? Do you ever go down to your basement to retrieve something and notice a strange odor? Ever wonder what it could be? Do you think yourself, perhaps that’s just normal basement smell – or could it be something else?

Maybe it’s just the smell of old photos. After all, you have had photos building up down there for decades. Plus all the Christmas decorations always have a certain funky smell after so many years of use, but you don’t mind using them – it’s tradition, after all.

But it’s possible that a pipe has broken in the back of your basement, which you would never know about because it’s tucked away behind a mountain of boxes of who-knows-what. Perhaps the smell is mold or fungus that’s gradually consuming not only your family mementos and keepsakes, but also undermining the structural integrity of your home.

Eeps! Now that sounds awful, right?
