How To Get Rid of a Musty Smell From Basement Moisture in Columbus IN 47201

After a strong storm with heavy rain, you may find a flooded basement, or you may have continued basement moisture problems from sweating walls. If your basement moisture in Columbus IN 47201 is minimal, and there are no floods, your carpet may be salvaged.

Your favorite carpet cleaner and germ disinfectant and a fragrant candle or two will get rid of the odor. This solution works well if you have someone visiting or you need to spend a short amount of time in your basement, but it will only be a temporary fix, if your carpet is not completely dry.

Make sure to use a wet/dry vacuum repeatedly until the vacuum is dry. You may have to go over the area several times. Apply some of your favorite carpet shampoo, gently massage it into the carpet, vacuum it up. Use a spray bottle and mist some warm water on the surface and vacuum. Remember that most carpets come pre-treated with some sort of stain remover. TIP: Applying carpet shampoo or carpet cleaner may remove the stain protection, so make sure to read your labels and reapply.

For larger carpeted areas, floods, basement moisture on your walls and repeated moisture issues, you need to find the source of the leak. Continued basement moisture leads to potentially hazardous mold and mildew issues, and ruined carpet and padding. In addition to health hazards and carpeting, repeated basement moisture may ruin or significantly damage your furnishings and decorations costing you thousands of dollars.
