The basement can be a frightening place for many homeowners. Mother of three Lana Segale says the basement of her New Jersey home gives her the creeps. It is a cluttered mess, and who knows what can be lurking in the room down below. “I am afraid,” she told Inside Edition. “I am afraid of anything jumping out at me.” What really scared her was the day she smelled a putrid odor coming from the basement. Segale dragged her husband downstairs to check it out.
