Generally small, airless, enclosed spaces without ventilation are prone to stagnant, less-than-fresh air, mustiness and – if there’s any moisture in there whatsoever – there may also be moisture damage. If you are sensitive to moisture problems, you might notice a tell-tale “musty” smell.
There are lots of reasons you don’t want to have smelly closets, including the fact that whatever is in them is going to absorb the odor from the air. You don’t want to walk around with clothes that smell like your grandmother’s attic, sleep on musty smelling sheets, use a stinky towel, or have your belongings carry a damp or other unpleasant scent such as sweat, smoke or mothballs.
Leaving the door open to air out the space every so often usually isn’t a great solution because it’s often not enough to really get rid of the closet smell and you really don’t want it wafting throughout the house. Plus if you’ve got moisture problems in there, it’s not going away unless you do something about it. So what should you do?
