Sources of Persistent Odor
There are different elements causing odors that can enter your home or office from the outside, but there are many who can also come from within. These impurities will grow, rot or rot, which can cause persistent odors and even pose health risks. Molds, bacteria, mildew, pet dander, pollen, dust, dead insects, mites, mite droppings, dirt, etc.
While freshening the air greatly helps to improve the smell of your home, candles and air fresheners are not enough to complete the job. These products only cover odors. They are great for adding an extra fresh scent, but do not get rid of odors at their source.
There are other parts of your home that retain odor, including fabrics and textiles. This includes carpets, rugs, curtains, furniture, pet beds, cat tricks, and even insulation. All these areas should be treated with care and regularly cleaned to eliminate and prevent persistent odors. And at some point, these textiles simply need to be replaced.
Tips for preventing odors:
Do not smoke indoors.
Replace all rugs and rugs aged 10 to 15 years.
Have your plumbing and roof inspected for water leaks and then make the necessary repairs.
Have your carpets and carpets cleaned professionally at least once a year; more often for older homes or homes with multiple occupants, pets and high pedestrian traffic.
Have your sofas (even leather), chairs and curtains professionally cleaned once a year.
Have your HVAC vents and vents professionally cleaned.
Have a dehumidifier installed in high humidity areas such as bathrooms, basements, attics and crawl spaces.
Periodically open your windows to ventilate your indoor environment. Leave them open at least an hour three or four times a year.
Try not to cook spicy foods on a regular basis, such as fish or marinated foods.
Keep windows open when cooking with heavy fat to release strong cooking odors.
Bathe your dogs regularly (at least once a month) using a quality shampoo. Small furry animals should be wiped off every month with a damp cloth, such as ferrets, rabbits, Indian pigs and hamsters, as well as exotic animals like chinchillas, pigs, raccoons, monkeys and squirrels.
Clean litter boxes, pet crates, cages and aquariums once a week. This includes washing pet beds and blankets inside crates, as well as changing bedding and stained wood chips.
Incorporate artificial or organic air fresheners for an extra boost, such as fresh flowers, potpourri, candles, plug-ins, or aerosols.
Use a specialized enzymatic cleaning solution to clean animal residues on carpets and rugs.
Periodically ask a friend what your home looks like! Your nose is too used to your home and can not detect bad smells as well as another person can do it.
And most importantly:
Have your property inspected, repaired, and maintained by a professional contractor or contractor. They have the tools, training, and equipment to repair or renovate windows, doors, garages, plumbing, roofs, concrete, drywall, paint, and more.
