odor in basement.....
We have lived in our house for almost 1 year know, and our basement (unfinished) has always been healthy
But all of the sudden, there is now - since 2 days - a smell of humidity
I checked and could not see any trace of water...!!!
Any idea?

see if there are any floor drains. if so, put water in them. 1 gallon

Yes, there are 2 floor drains
Why pooring water in them?
