If you hate entering your home because of the horrible odors in the air, it’s understandable. And if this means getting help from outside, preferably from professional cleaners, that’s a step in the right direction.
Home cleaning services are the ones to use as they have the right knowhow, equipment and attitude to work that can bring about cleanliness and hygiene in your home.
Here’s the kind of help you can expect from your home cleaners for a variety of unwanted smells:
Stale food refrigerator smell: When you open your fridge, there could be times that you’re greeted by some disgusting odor. Let your home cleaners know this and watch them put an open box of baking soda at the back of a shelf to trap malodors. Or, they may use activated charcoal.
Cigarette smoke smell: Cigarette smells hangs in the air for a long time, and particularly in the fibers of upholstery and carpets. By letting your home cleaners know your problem, you can see them spread a few bowls of vinegar all over the house so that it soaks up the smell. Now, isn’t that easy?
However, if it doesn’t go with this, your cleaners might have to use a carpet or upholstery cleaner to get rid of the strong smell of tobacco.
Smelly garbage smell: You might have put your waste into your disposal bin last night, but that shouldn’t cause a stink in your kitchen. To cut out the stink, cut a lime, lemon or orange into bite-sized pieces and drop them into the disposal bin. The citrus content of these fruits will help get rid of the terrible stink. Alternatively, make a solution of vinegar and cold water and pour it down your disposal bin.
A foul-smelling dishwasher: If you get a musty or a moldy smell when you open your dishwasher, it’s a good idea to run your dishwasher empty using two cups of white vinegar instead of soap.
So much for domestic cleaning? Now, let’s move on to pet smells and ways to get rid of these smells.
Pet smell: The easiest way of getting rid of pet smells from your furniture is to put it out in the sun. You can also beat pillows using a broom so that you get the maximum dust out of them. This can be followed up by vacuuming the furniture with your HEPA filter. After this, the problem areas can be soaked in pet odor cleaning solutions and run a HEPA air purifier while the furniture dries in the sun as it is very capable of removing strong odors.
