Mold Smell Removal Tips & Techniques

When you smell mold on personal items like shoes, clothing, beds, upholstered furniture, and clothing, inside homes or other buildings, in the airflow from heating and cooling equipment and ducts, or room air, there is a mold infestation causing that mold smell.  You can usually smell a mold problem before you can see it visually.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, "
some compounds produced by molds have strong smells and are volatile and quickly released into the air. These compounds are known as microbial volatile organic compounds (mVOCs). Because mVOCs often have strong or unpleasant odors, they can be the source of the "moldy odor" or musty smell frequently associated with mold growth. A moldy odor suggests that mold is growing in the building and should be investigated. The health effects of inhaling mVOCs are largely unknown, although exposure to mVOCs has been linked to symptoms such as headaches, nasal irritation, dizziness, fatigue, and nausea. More research is needed to determine whether there are any human health effects from non-occupational indoor exposures to mVOCs."

"If you can see or smell mold, a health risk may be present," according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. “Exposure to elevated levels of mold while at home or at work can cause a very large variety of serious mold health symptoms and mold illnesses as the direct result of a resident or worker’s living or working in elevated levels of mold, especially black toxic mold (Stachybotrys) and other species of toxic mold such as Aspergillus and Penicillium,” warns mold expert Phillip Fry, author of the ebooks Mold Health Guide and Mold Monsters.  Read Common Mold Symptoms.

Thus, the first step in mold smell removal is to find and remove the mold growth infestation that is producing the mold smell. Learn how to do safe and effective home mold inspection and commercial building mold inspection by reading the easy to follow directions with dozens of mold pictures and mold inspection pictures at Mold Inspection.

The second step in mold smell removal is to remove the mold infestation. Please read the 25 steps for safe and effective mold removal at Mold Removal.

The third step is to scrub all of your personal possessions and all surfaces of your home or building with the effective mold smell removal product boric acid powder mix, available with mix instructions at Mold Cleaner.
Another product to use in crawl spaces and basements with a moldy smell is chlorinated lime spread onto the ground or floor and left there until the odor disappears. 

The fourth step is to use high ozone blasting to kill mold and the mold smell everywhere inside your heating/cooling equipment and ducts, attic, basement, crawl space, and all rooms and areas. Learn how to do mold smell removal with an affordable ozone generator. Ozone blasting is the best way to get rid of odors of all types including mold smell, mold growth, and bedbugs.
