Commercial deodorizers eradicate odors and finding the source and eliminating it will be key in making sure the odors are gone for good.
Normally bad odors increase your home if there is poor ventilation. It is always good to identify where the smell is coming from. The most typical places bad smelling odors come from are:
- Improperly Cleaned Carpets
Even though these are the most common bad odors can come from anywhere and are not limited to just those listed above. Some other causes of bad odors in the home are:
Having pets is like adding family members to our family tree. However, they are culprits in odor causing bacteria. Walking your dog exposes them to dirt and wastes. When they come back into the home, they lay on the couch and walk on the rugs. The constant exposure to the dirt and grime is accumulated in sections of the home. Cleaning measures can only go so far.
* Carpet odor
Carpets accumulate dust and particles. Even if you vacuum the rug frequently, particles still remain in the fibers. Walking over carpets with shoes on also transfers dirt. If you have pets, they walk on the rug as well. After a while carpets expel musty smells.
Sinks are prone to collecting gunk. Mildew forms around the edges and creases. Particles of food, hair, soaps and other sources accumulate in the pipes as well. They cling to the layers of grime that form in pipes causing them to rot.
* Garbage disposal
It is important to clean garbage disposals frequently. Particles of food and other wastes accumulate as well, rot and start to expel strong odors. They will also clog causing back-ups. These back-ups will cause water to sit and overflow. When this happens, water damage happens. Sitting water is perfect for mold spores to grow on.
You must clean your toilet bowls regularly. Make sure it is flushing properly. When toilets overflow, they will spread black water. Black water will contain bodily fluids and feces.
Smoke odor is one of the most difficult ones to get rid of. If you have smoked in your home, or even if you have rented out a property that was smoked in, professional assistance will be needed. Smoke seeps into porous surfaces which compose a large part of your home. It clings to carpets, furniture, bedding etc.
Sewage odor can be the result of water trapped somewhere in the pipes. Water must run smoothly in all your drains. Otherwise odors will rise to the surface. Sewage odor smells like rotten eggs and is extremely unpleasant.
*Moldy and Musty
Mold and musty smells are product of either previous water damage, water damage that has not been properly repaired, mold growth etc. Because pipes are in walls and underground around the home, you may not be aware that you have a problem until its too late. Water causes humidity and when warm conditions are added to the mix, condensation happens. Without proper ventilation the water trickles and sits. This will cause mold and rot on surfaces and areas in and around the home.
