What can be done about the musty smell in my home? I think it’s coming from the crawl space.

Mold and Mildew Removal Nashville | Murfreesboro | Jackson | Franklin | Mt. Juliet | Clarksville | Cookeville | Knoxville | Chattanooga | Bowling GreenAnswer:  Many homes built in the middle Tennessee area suffer from poor moisture management. The musty smell is most likely coming from the crawl space. Crawl Space mold and mildew exist because of excess moisture and mold can cause allergies affecting your family’s health. A plumbing leak, poorly installed vapor barrier, water intrusion in the crawl space, or just warm humid air entering the crawl space resulting in condensation could be the source. Alone or in combination these conditions will lead to mold and mildew growth. We recommend removal of any standing water, having a proper vapor barrier installed with 100% of the ground covered, repairing plumbing leaks, if any, treating the wood with an appropriate fungicide and installing an EZ Breathe Ventilation System. This unit will serve as a dehumidifier, ventilation system, air purifier, and will keep the crawl space humidity below 50% and not allow mold and mildew to grow. No mold means, No must smell.  For more information on mold and mildew removal services, contact us today.
