mildew smell in rental-phew

noodlesportlandNovember 23, 2002

we are moving into an 810 sq.ft. rental for 4-6 weeeks between houses. The place smells old and mildewed altho looks clean-esp. the bathroom. I have turned up the heat and sprayed some clorine type cleaner around--any other ideas?? thanks. it reminds me of and old cabin in the woods--love the woods but hate that smell

It seems that it might be some product they used to seal the floors and we cannot live there-rented a different place. feel sorry for this young couple. thanks noodlesportland
