Musty smell / mould – YOU SHOULD NOT IGNORE IT!
If you notice a musty smell in your home, don’t underestimate this problem.
Our services include removal of musty smells, which is usually the result of inadequate or malfunctioning ventilation. The resulting musty smell is predominantly associated with mould and fungi which can be potentially harmful to health and there can be various diseases accompanied with it – especially in young children, allergic people and people with reduced immunity.
Necessary medical visits and allergy medication often taken regularly in such cases significantly burdens family budget.
Occurring moulds in our living spaces are also often associated with other conditions such as:
- Runny nose
- Affected sleeping habits
- Behavioural problems in children
- Impaired learning or concentration
This greatly reduces the comfort of living. Therefore, out of concern for the health and safety of your household members, you should consider preventing the recurrence of the problem and then apply comprehensive disinfection. In the following parts of this article we will show you how to remove musty smells. Thanks to this we will be, once and for all, able to get rid of this problem.

Unpleasant odour in your home
The musty smell in your home can be a very embarrassing phenomenon, especially when guests are invited to your house or apartment. This unpleasant smell can often be very inconvenient for the owner and it is also worth mentioning that the development of mustiness in the house or apartment is dynamic and quickly moves to other rooms.
The best efforts to prevent and eliminate this unpleasant smell are made right after it appears. The longer we wait, the worse it gets. The mould will then be transferred to the equipment and furniture, especially those with upholstered material.
A green sediment at the back of the furniture begins to appear when there already is a serious problem in the area. In such case, you need to act quickly to save the furniture from the recycling centre.
How to fight bad odour at home? Meet the ozone power
Musty smell can quickly and deeply penetrate clothes, coats and jackets and can be smelled wherever the wearer stays. Often, unfortunately, schools, work or other places can also smell bad. The unpleasant smell of clothes can also arise as a result of our oversight – perhaps we put damp and dry clothes from the washing machine or dryer inside the wardrobe. Limited access to the air creates favourable conditions for mould development.
Now imagine that one morning you wake up and you will no longer experience the bad smell.
You feel relief and contentment. You go out to meet friends or to work and you are no longer worried that someone will again smell this embarrassing odour.
Such effect can be achieved in just a few hours thanks to the ozonation, after which the air will again become fresh and crisp, smelling pleasantly.
Ozonation is ideal for fighting musty smells. The ozone generated by the generator, being a gas, reaches all corners of the house and removes the sources of the unpleasant odour which is deposited on upholstered and wooden furniture, walls, curtains, equipment, rugs and carpets.
It is currently the cheapest method as we do not have to throw away all the furniture from the apartment or a house and carry out a costly renovation/painting.
However, before we can start ozonation, it is imperative that we first eliminate the causes and source of mustiness. It is worth analysing why this situation arose as a result of which this unpleasant odour appeared. If we correctly diagnose the situation and then eliminate the cause, we have a very high probability that after ozonation the musty and mould smell will not return.
As we mentioned at the beginning, the most common cause of mustiness is malfunctioning / nonexistent ventilation. These problems accumulate even more when the windows are tight and prevent fresh air from entering the room. There are also very dangerous and life-threatening situations in which households reduce the size of ventilation grilles, cover them and even eliminate them. In this situation the air in the room “stands” all the time, because it does not escape from the ventilation grilles and fresh air is not able to penetrate inside.
In addition, as a result of malfunctioning ventilation, moisture is not drained away from the house. As a result of moisture accumulation, mould and fungus begin to appear on the walls. Airing in this case does solve this problem, but only temporarily.
What else will you gain with ozonation?
Ozonation is a comprehensive solution ideal for fighting not only with various onerous odours.
After ozonation the room will be disinfected, which at the same time eliminates problems that negatively affect the comfort of living or working.
Here are some of them:
- Eliminating the smell of pets
- Eliminating smell of cigarettes and tobacco
- Removing dust mites and other allergens
- Making life easier for allergy sufferers and asthmatics
- Room sterilisation by removing viruses, bacteria and other germs
