You don’t always smell your home because you’re used to it. Have you ever walked into someone else’s house and thought, “Wow, they need to do something about that smell,” well consider your guests might be doing the same thing. Here are a few tips to keeping your home smelling fresh.

  1. Clean your Carpet:

If you have carpet throughout your house and you haven’t had it cleaned in a while, get some quotes from a professional carpet cleaning company. Most of them have deodorizers as well that will help your home smell better. Odors, as well as germs and dirt, can hide deep in your carpet and only high temperature and steam will get them out.Clean your tile:

2. Clean your tile:

Like your carpet, your tile can hold odors as well. Ceramic, porcelain, and stone, as well as the grout, are all porous which means they can absorb moisture and odors. Mopping helps, but professional tile cleaning is extremely effective.

3. Clean your Furniture:

Fabric, in general, is a trap for odors, bacteria, and dirt. Most carpet cleaning companies clean furniture as well, so when you get your carpets cleaned, consider the furniture. Unless you get everything cleaned at once, it’s tough to know for sure if you’ll really freshen up the entire house.

4. Clean your Air ducts:

Your air conditioning can be a major culprit in subtle odors throughout your home. There are special companies for air duct cleaning, as well as a/c companies, and even some carpet cleaning companies provide this service as well.

5. Purchase an air purifier:

Whether it’s from the internet or a department store, air purifiers are relatively inexpensive and easy to purchase. Most of them cleanse the air of bacteria and odors rather effectively. Do your research to find a good one.
