Welcome to the world of mildew and mould!

A dehumidifier will help. But once the mould is into the wood or carpet, the only way to eliminate it completely is removal of all the contaminated materials.

RE: smell in basement!

Good ventilation also helps.

What kind of school is this?
Our gym classes where "taught" in the basement at Chatham Central, in the previous century. Back then, children with allergies were second class citizens.
