Whether it’s a sign your carpet needs cleaning or it’s originating from your kitchen, a foul odor can ruin the atmosphere of even the most beautiful home. Luckily, they’re easy to avoid and to deal with by following these simple tips courtesy of Denver Cleanpro.

Eliminate the cause

Air fresheners and scented candles will only mask odors. Track down the source of the odor (perhaps it’s a spot of mold, a backed-up pipe, or otherwise) and deal with it to get rid of the smell permanently.

Keep your kitchen fresh

There are a number of things you can do to avoid smells from the kitchen permeating your home. Try the following:
  • Ensure good ventilation in the kitchen when you cook to avoid smoke and cooking smells lingering around the house.
  • Pour half a cup of white vinegar down your garbage disposal to cut any smells that are hanging around.
  • Freshen up your dishwasher by filling a dishwasher-safe cup with white vinegar, placing it on the top shelf, and running your machine empty of dishes.
  • Keep your fridge smelling clean by cleaning it regularly and keeping an open box of baking soda on one of the shelves (though avoid keeping it near your vegetables as it can cause them to wilt a little quicker).

Wash your washing machine

Washing machines have to be airtight for obvious reasons, but this means air rarely circulates inside. Remedy this by leaving the door open or ajar between washes and periodically run your machine empty with a cup of bleach thrown in, or use specialized washing machine cleaning tablets if you prefer.

Control pet odors

If your pets are kicking up a stink, try using activated charcoal. This substance is great for absorbing odors in general, and is particularly effective for controlling odors from cat litter trays or pet’s bedding. It’s also relatively inexpensive and environmentally-friendly!
