musty home odor

Hi my husband started a new job in January which required him to live on site. The house is a one story with a basement. It had been closed up for several years and it has a very strong musty odor upstairs. We had the carpets cleaned and have aired it out whenever we could but the odor is still there. It doesn't bother my husband but it really bothers me. What can I do to get rid of the odor? :(

Re: musty home odor

The carpet and the padding must be pulled out completely to determine if the problem is in the floor or not.

Shampooing the carpet only adds water into the carpet.
