Aroma versus odors
Seasonal house cleaning also includes the removal of offensive odors from the home. We love summertime for so many reasons, and one of those reasons is because it is the time of year when we can open up the doors and windows, and let the fresh air circulate through the house. Most of us will want to deep clean our house before the holidays, and by that time, the weather may not permit us to open up windows and doors to remove stale or offensive odor. There are products on the market that have a pleasant aroma, but sometimes they only add one scent on top of another. We want to offer some tips that you might find a little more successful. Consider the following:
Eliminate cigarette smoke
Cigarette smoke permeates everything from clothing to carpet and it sticks around for years after the smoke has cleared. When it comes to carpet and upholstery, sprinkle baking soda over the affected area, and let it sit for a few hours. Vacuum up the baking soda with a vacuum cleaner that has a HEPA filter. After vacuuming, rent a carpet and upholstery cleaner and give the furniture a good steam cleaning.
Deodorize garbage cans
If you place a lot of organic waste in your garbage cans, the first step for odor control is to empty the garbage regularly. Do not wait a day or two for the garbage can to get completely full. If you detect odors after you put in a garbage can liner, you need to scrub the can, inside and out, with a disinfectant cleaner. We recommend that you use an eco-friendly cleaner, and then spray the garbage can with white vinegar. Let the can soak for an hour, and then wipe it clean.
Pet odors can be as stubborn as cigarette smoke. If the weather permits, allow pillows, rugs, and items that can be carried outside to sit in the sun for a while. Regular vacuuming gets rid of household dust pet dander. Soak problem areas with pet-odor cleaning products. Once you have the odors removed, it would be wise to invest in an HEPA certified air purifier.
Odors in the bathroom
The bathroom is rife with warm, moist places that are perfect environments for mold and mildew. The first step is to use your exhaust fan regularly, especially when using the shower. It is important that you regularly wash towels and rugs. Wash or replace the shower curtain and liner as often as necessary.
