A suburb of Cook County, Illinois, Arlington Heights is known for the Arlington Park Race Track, and is home of the Arlington Million which is a Breeder’s Cup qualifying event. The area gets about 38.25 inches of precipitation a year and many residents experience some moisture issues in their basement.
A basement that is prone to moisture is susceptible to a lot of problems. Your personal belongings stored here and HVAC systems can get damaged, the home’s foundation can deteriorate, wooden posts can rot, and mildew, fungi, and mold can flourish causing many health hazards.
If you smell something musty in your home, most likely it’s coming from the basement as a wet basement can emit an unpleasant smell.
