  • vinegar...
    it helps kill the mold but you can't really get rid of the smell unless you kill all the mold.

  • odoban....kills many viruses(hep &hiv), gets rid of mold and can cover the worst smells. You can buy at walmart or homedepot. Just read the instruction label for mixing.

  • I'm bumping this because I wish I knew! I got rid of all the mold in my house and still smell this musty odor if all the windows are shut!

  • After killing all the mold, keep your house dusted and swept very well. If it is humid a dehumidifier works wonders....If you have a fireplace that helps dry the air, too. On the outside of your house, keep it raked. Dead leaves are moldy...
