smelly basement

Posted by Rhonda on July 28th, 1998 07:40 PM

We have a 2-year-old house that we built ourselves (with some subcontracting) with a full basement with poured concrete walls. Even though the walls were sealed on the outside and there is no trace of moisture anywhere in the basement, we have a slightly musty smell that permeates the items stored there. We'd like to finish the basement, but not unless we can get rid of the smell. I might add that we have central air (but not a dehumidifier), and one sump pump which is covered. There is one window, but it can't be left open as it faces the west, and rain would come in. Any ideas on what could be causing the odor, and how to get of it? Thanks....Rhonda
