Using your clothes washer and dryer can sometimes create a fresh, clean, laundry smell that’s a mixture of detergent, bleach, fabric softener, dryer sheets and clean clothes.
On the other hand, it’s not uncommon to find odors in your laundry room that are anything but fresh and clean, such as damp, musty smells from too much moisture, or the smell of dirty, sweaty clothes. If your utility room is in the basement, sometimes you even have a sewer smell down there from a backed-up floor drain or pipe or valve or vent.
Most laundry room odors are the result of the humid environment created by washing and drying clothes, which in turn leads to moisture problems, which then creates that musty smell we associate with damp places. Sometimes the washing machine itself is the culprit - the odor may be the residue of water, detergent and dirt that collects in the cavity that holds the washing drum.
Whatever the source of unpleasant odors in your laundry/utility room, Damp Rid has a full line of moisture, and odor removal products to eliminate the problem.
If excess humidity is the cause, try one of DampRid’s Easy-Fill System Moisture Absorbers - the non-electric way to eliminate odors by lowering the moisture content of the air to 50% relative humidity or less. These products eliminate laundry room moisture problems and the musty smell they produce.
