4 Best Tips To Get Rid Of Odors In Your Home
Most of us don't even know our homes smell bad because we live in it, making us numb to the smell. To make your home smell good, you’ll have to really search out the source and eliminate any factors that might lead to a bad smell. But sometimes you just need a quick fix. To make it easier to locate the source of a smell, have someone that doesn't live with you come in. Ask them to be honest and most likely they'll tell you if your home smells like fart or something of a lesser odor.
The first step is determining the problem, once it is detected, then comes the second step, eliminating the cause of the smell. Here are some quick tips you can follow to get rid of a bad smell in your home quickly.
Replace The Air:
It is quite obvious, if you want to get rid of the old, smelly air, then open all of your doors and windows and let out the old air and replace it with fresher, new air.
If you have windows on both sides of the rooms, that’s a better option because this will allow a cross breeze. Turn on the ceiling fans or whatever ventilation source you use to let the fresh air replace the old foul smelling air.
Using air fresheners, sprays, plug-ins, and various other good smelling fragrances is a popular option to get rid of the bad smell in your home. Try to avoid mixing them all up and using too strong fragrances, as this can add up with the existing smell to further worsen the smell.
Keep in mind that using these type of fragrances in your kitchen, if to strong, can be soaked up by some of the food in your cupboards. This can make for an unpleasant eating experience so if you need to use fragrance in your kitchen try to use subtle aromas or simply use Arm and Hammer Baking Soda to soak up bad odors.
Keep Your Carpet Clean:
Carpet can be the origin of many bad smells specially if you have pets in your home. It is almost impossible to clean your carpet by only vacuuming. Dirt and sometimes bacteria can slowly build up causing your home to smell. If you want to get a better idea if this is happening in your home just get down on the floor and put your nose to the carpet and take a whiff. the smell will be more concentrated the closer you get your nose to the floor.
A good option to clean up the carpet is using a carpet freshener. Just sprinkle on the carpet before vacuuming, and you’ll smell the results within minutes. For light colored carpets, you can use baby powder if you don’t have a carpet freshener available in an emergency visitor situation. Just remember that the powder will take some time to get out of the carpet so a slow deliberate vacuuming is recommended.
