Your home’s scent provides its first impression to all guests. However, odor removal is not always straightforward. Odors build up under your nose without you noticing. Treat unpleasant smells when you first notice them to avoid a stinking house. Here are three quick ways to remove odors from your home.
It’s essential to find and clean the source of the odor. If the smell originates from a carpet or rug, baking soda works great for odor removal. Sprinkle some baking soda over the smelly spot, and leave it a few hours – or days if necessary. It has no fragrance and will likely remove the unwanted odor from your carpet. Vacuum and repeat if the smell remains.
There are numerous causes of smelly drains. Some are a pain to deal with, and some aren’t. The quickest odor removal tip for a sink is to extract hair from the pipe. Use a hair removal tool from a handy store or a wire hanger bent straight with a hook at the end. Get all of the smelly hair that has been stuck in your drains out of your house.
Our lovable companions don’t always smell very lovely, and sometimes unpleasant odors get tracked into the house. When cleaning animal urine, you lightly blot because if you rub, you’ll smear it in. After lightly blotting the urine spot with a napkin, pour a mix of half water and half white vinegar over the stain. Let it sit for a few minutes and clean it all up with a towel. This usually does the trick for pet odor removal, but the most important thing is detecting it early.
