Sometimes, it seems as if we can’t escape a smell. Whether it is because of a previous owner being a smoker or a pet owner, or because of water damage with mildew and mold, you will want to get the smell out of your house in the most effective way possible. Thankfully, with these tips and tricks you can eliminate the odors in your home without breaking the bank.
While getting rid of the furniture may be enough to drive out the smell if you have wood floors, you may find that it lingers if you have carpet. A good place to start with odor elimination is by cleaning your carpets. Many places allow you to rent a steam cleaner for a period of time, and these can be used to clean the floors. This is useful for odors that have not set in too deeply. You can also use a baking soda and vinegar solution on your walls and ceiling to get rid of the odor. However, this can leave you with vinegar smell.
However, if you find that all of your actions do not seem to have put a dent in the smell, you may want to look into a more controlled way to eliminate the smell. Odor Free Machines use ozone to help clear out smells. These machines can also do more than most other methods, as it can leech the odor from the walls and the ceiling as well as furniture and the carpet all at one time.
