Musty Smells in Your Basement?
That’s a Sure Sign of Water Damage
Have you noticed musty odors in your basement or throughout your home? Many homeowners report stale or moldy smells in their homes, but too many of them ignore this sign of potential water damage.

We can help you uncover the root cause of the odor and provide the most effective waterproofing solutions to remove the moisture and the mold, repair the damage, and prevent water damage issues in the future.
Water and moisture intrusion is one of the most damaging issues your home can encounter, and can lead to things like mold growth, structural decay, insect infestations, and more. Even if you don’t see any visible signs of water damage, if you can smell a musty, moldy odor, it’s time to have your home professionally inspected. One of our Seattle water damage professionals will thoroughly assess your house, find the source of the smell, and implement our best water damage remediation and prevention strategies.
Musty odors often indicate the presence of mold and mildew. You may not be able to see it, but that doesn’t mean it’s not there. Mold often hides behind walls, under floors, and tucked into corners. Because water can seep into the tiniest spaces, it’s important to have a professional carefully inspect your home. This isn’t something you should attempt to do yourself. Water damage and mold can be incredibly hazardous to your health and the overall safety of your home.
