Dehumidifier needed to remove musty smell

Just bought a short sale house. The crawl space has had water in it twice already. there is not a basement, house built on a slab. the crawl space is in the center of the house. we need to get that area completely dried out. the house also has that musty smell (1800 square ft - bi level home).


Thinking i will need to buy 2 units so there is one on each floor. This is our first home and this is all new to us.

Dehumidifier needed to remove musty smell

Hi!
Yes, a dehumidifier would be needed to help keep the damp smell from the house. The water might still get into the crawl space but the dehumidifier will help dry it out, if it's not too much water. Two would be good for your space.

Also, an air purifier would be helpful to really get rid of the musty odor smell. Any air purifier with an activate carbon filter will help remove the smell.
