Mildew Smell in a House

Prevent Mildew Smell In Your Home

Control indoor moisture to prevent mildew growth

Mildew grows on flat surfaces and is usually white and gray in color and thrives in high moisture areas where water is allowed to condense. This type of environment is conducive to mildew growth and is commonly found in high-moisture areas like your basement, crawl space, or bathroom.

If you have mildew growth, you will also smell a musty odor commonly associated with basements.

Leaving these high-moisture areas untreated is bad for you, as mold allergies are incredibly dangerous for people with asthma or other respiratory issues. 

See how AprilAire can help you curb mildew growth in your home.

How AprilAire Can Help Prevent Mildew Smell in the House

Musty odors mean there is a mildew problem. This means that the humidity in your house is too high and it needs to be controlled.

Using a whole-house dehumidifier from AprilAire can help you regulate the high humidity in your home which makes mildew growth possible. With a digital display, you can set the relative humidity to the proper range so mildew, molds, and other fungi are unable to grow. 

In addition, our whole-house dehumidifiers can also help make your home more comfortable and energy-efficient while protecting your home's assets from structural rot and warpage. The AprilAire Dehumidifier includes a dedicated drain which means there is no messy water tray to empty. Yearly filter cleaning or replacement makes maintenance simple.

Each dehumidifier is designed and manufactured in the USA and is outfitted with corrosion-resistant coils and a sturdy design to prevent leakage. Additionally, each unit comes backed by a 5-year warranty.
