That musty basement smell
I recently moved into a newly-renovated building in Columbia Heights and I can’t seem to get rid of that basement smell. While the building isn’t new, my basement studio is (nine units were added in renovation) but it seems that doesn’t preclude it from smelling musty and gross whenever I walk in the door.
I’m from the west coast and haven’t ever lived in a house with a basement. I’ve tried opening windows, burning candles, etc. and keep the place really clean but that hasn’t helped. Any advice?
