Musty basement

Posted by Roland Gerig on May 25th, 1999 06:17 PM

We live in an old farmhouse that is at least seventy
years old. In that last year we have been experiencing
a problem with a moldy smelling basement. The oil furnace
was taken out fifteen years ago and replaced by baseboard
electric heat. We have been running a dehumidifier in the summer
and an electric heater in the winter while keeping the basement windows
open a bit in the summer months. Everything that we have stored in the
basement smells of mold and were told that everything that contains
paper fibre would have to be thrown out. What do you suggest one does
in order to solve this odor problem?
