After the water has been removed, you may notice a lingering musty smell. Another concern stemming from basement flooding is mold growth. Mold can affect your health.
How can you get rid of that musty smell from your home?
The first step is to inspect the area for any visible mold growth. If there is an affected area that’s less than ten square feet, you may be able to clean it yourself. A mixture of household detergent and water should do the trick. Larger areas should be handled by a professional.
If all mold issues have been removed but you’re still dealing with a musty smell, there are things you can do to make your basement smell fresh. Baking soda is a natural deodorizer. Sprinkle it on carpeting and let it sit overnight. If the smell is lingering on upholstery, consider using white vinegar. Once the vinegar dries, the musty smell should be gone.
