A damp or dirty carpet could be the source of foul odors in your house. That is why you need to maintain the carpet by using the fresh healthy carpet cleaning service to make sure your carpet is clean thoroughly. Or you could use household items to help to remove the odor from the carpet. The usefulness of vinegar is very good for cleaning and removing foul odors. Place apple cider or white vinegar in a spray bottle with warm water (about half to one cup of vinegar for each gallon of water), and spray the area well. After spraying, allow the area to dry completely. The smell of vinegar will disappear, picking up many other odors. If the aroma of vinegar temporarily irritates you, just add a few drops of the essential oil.
Soda water is also great to remove the foul odors on the carpet. Best known for removing stains from carpets and fabrics, soda can also function as a natural carpet deodorizer. If you have pet spills or stains on your carpet, clean the area immediately. Then, pour soda water directly into the stain or cloth, and clean the area again. Make sure to wash gently – don’t rub – to avoid damaging the carpet fibers and changing the look of the carpet.
Now that you know how to get rid of carpet odors with household items and homemade carpet fresheners, it’s important to note that the best way to control carpet odors is to prevent them from the start. Avoid or reduce eating and drinking in carpeted areas. If your dining area is carpeted, consider placing plastic mats or rugs under tables, chairs, and bar stools for easy cleaning. Keep a basket of old towels near the door to wipe the pet’s feet before they enter. Vacuum as often as possible, and clean up spills immediately. Don’t leave food, drinks, or pet stains on the carpet. Too high a level of humidity can cause the smell of the stuffy carpet. Consider using a dehumidifier if you have difficulty maintaining the level of humidity in your home.
