One of the most common issues with a basement for folks living in Michigan is that dreaded musty smell. If you have a musty odor in your basement in the Flint Michigan area, and want it just gone, you owe it to yourself to call Absolute ProCare.

Hi, my name is Wes Benko, owner of Absolute ProCare carpet and upholstery cleaning. I have added a new division to my company, it’s called the Just Gone Systems™. I can guarantee complete odor removal in your musty basement in as little as 5 hours! Due to the size and severity of the odor it may take up to 8 hours. Also, due to the severity, a 2nd application may be needed. But the end result, is complete elimination of the musty odor!

The first step in getting rid of that irritating odor is eliminating the odor source. What is causing the musty odor? Is there a leak somewhere? If you indeed have a leak, by not fixing it there’s a good chance the odor will come back after we’ve treated it. Fix the odor source and you will have an odor free basement.

Another common cause of musty odors in your basement is due to humid conditions, especially in the summer. By simply opening some windows down there you’ll be allowing fresh air in and allowing your basement to breathe. This also works for minor smoke issues. Fresh air can do wonders. When evening arrives and it starts to cool down outside, simply open those windows up over night. By doing this you’ll be keeping the humidity out during the day and airing out your basement with cool fresh air during the night.

Another good idea is to use a dehumidifier. After we’ve treated your basement and removed the odor, you can run that dehumidifier periodically throughout the year, especially during the summer heat. If you have central AC make sure your vents are open down in the basement. If it’s cool outside and the AC is not needed, sometimes it can help by just running the fan. On your thermostat turn your fan switch from auto to on. Run the fan for 4-5 hours a day to get some air movement down there. I use the fan when I’m cleaning carpet in a home. By turning the fan on, that little bit of air will take an hour or two off of the drying time.
