Tips to Help Prevent Lingering Odors in Your Home

If you’re trying to sell your home, make sure there are no pungent odors lingering around. Strong odors that are hard to get rid of can cause a potential buyer to change their mind about your property. This is especially true when staging your home. To avoid these issues, make sure you do your best to prevent foul odors. Home Key Title in Westborough has some tips to keep your home smelling fresh.

Take Care of the Trash

Some of the most common culprits of bad household odors are the trashcans. To avoid odors caused by trash and trash cans, make sure you take out the trash in every room daily. Taking out the trash is especially important in the kitchen because this is where rotten food and other pungent items are usually disposed of. Wash the trash cans with soapy water and place dryer sheets at the bottom to prevent bad odors.

Maintain Carpets Odor Free

In order to maintain your carpets odor free, you have to keep them clean. This means you need to treat stains as soon as they happen or as soon as you notice them. Don’t allow stains to set because they will be harder to remove and will leave an odor. Blot liquid stains with a clean towel and treat the area with a solution of soapy water. Don’t scrub stains because this will cause them to spread and penetrate further. Make sure to dry the area thoroughly once you’ve removed the stain.

Keep Your Pets Clean

If you share your home with pets, keep them clean in order to prevent pungent odors. If your pets aren’t clean, they can contribute to the odor problem. Pets can carry bad odors and spread them to other areas in your home. This is especially true when it comes to carpet, furniture and curtains.
