Moisture Problem in Basement or Crawlspace

Q: We live in a 20 year old home, 4 level split. Just recently we noticed as we went down to the basement there is a damp, musty smell. The smell is not always strong. There isn't a wet spot anywhere around. Would you kindly give me advice as to what I could do? Thank you for your assistance.

A: I would suggest you call Humidex. They have a representative that can inspect your basement to see if a Humidex system would rectify your humidity problem. The Humidex is designed to vent and control the moisture/humidity level in crawlspaces and basements. This will eliminate any further damp or musty odours.
