It's a musty smell (like a dirty sock) that is the result of fungus, mold and mildew growing inside your home. Not something you want to experience.
With little or poor ventilation, the musty smell in your home can linger, compounding with other smells and making your home an unpleasant place to be.
"There is no practical way to eliminate all molds indoors; the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture."
-U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
As the EPA states, you can't remove mold completely. But Aprilaire's whole-home indoor air quality solutions can prevent mold growth, remove spores from the air and prevent the musty smell.
An Aprilaire Whole-Home Dehumidifier will remove the ideal amount of humidity from your air to mitigate the problem. The Aprilaire Whole-Home Air Purifier will remove mold spores from the air, and Aprilaire Whole-Home Ventilation will exchange stale, polluted indoor air with fresh air.
