Musty basement and apartment air purifier

My basement and apartment always smell musty. Is there an air purifier that is better than others in eliminating this smell?? Total square feet upstairs and downstairs is app 900 sq ft.

A: An air purifier won't cover upstairs and downstairs, or separate rooms unfortunately. Assuming that the musty smell is from humidity an air purifier using negative ions or ozone would be your first choice. Negative ion machines (or air purifiers including negative ions) can be run continuously, and are also good for your lungs, brain, etc. Ozone machines should be used with caution because, while they are better at mold, must and odor, they can irritate lungs. If you don't spend a lot of time in the basement get an Ozone machine on a timer and turn it on for an hour every few days...
