Smells are unwanted guests that attach to your walls, furniture and other surfaces in your home, which will create an unpleasant environment that can go unnoticed. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to prevent this situation, and at Capital Cleanpro in Central Ohio, we have prepared the following post containing useful tips to handle this problem. 

Kitchen

Foul odors tend to concentrate in this area, so don’t forget to clean the shelves and walls of your refrigerator by using a warm water and baking soda solution; remember that your appliance should be unplugged while you carry out this activity. Also, place fresh coffee grounds in small bowls on every level of your refrigerator, which will absorb any odors. Don’t forget to simmer cinnamon sticks in water after cooking pungent foods like fish or cabbage. 

Bathroom

It’s likely that hair, dirt and other substances create a clog in your sink, which may produce a bad odor. You can easily get rid of this problem by adding a teaspoon of baking soda into the drain and pouring hot water afterwards. Remember to clean every area in the bathroom, as the moisture can produce mold growth. Don’t forget to look for plumbing leaks and fix them.  

Pet Odors

If your companion animals have access to every corner of your home, you will probably have a lingering pet odor. Dust and vacuum the area and place bowls of vinegar to absorb the odors, which is a natural way that won’t affect your indoor air quality. Don’t forget to bathe your pet and wash its bedding. 

These are just a few ideas to get rid of the most common odors in your home, remember that you should always find the source before applying air fresheners. Also, be sure to read our guide on removing cigarette odor, in case you are dealing with this problem.
