Getting Rid of Odors in Your Home

With the temperature and humidity rising have you noticed new and unpleasant odors in your home?  We have all experienced this problem at one time or another.  However the cause of the problem is just as important as it being taken care of  properly.


The first step is to determine the original location of the odor.  Sometimes it’s as easy as a leaky trash bag, bad food in the cupboard, or damp towels in the bathroom. Once the odor causing culprit is found removing it from your home then cleaning and disinfecting the area should help resolve the offensive smells. When cleaning you should not leave any areas wet or damp. You should always make sure all surfaces dry as soon as possible.

Sometimes it’s not always that easy and just masking a persistent odor is not good for you or your home because the real underlying problem could be causing damage in more areas than you know.  Odors caused by damp clothing or possessions that are placed in poorly ventilated areas are prime targets for mold contamination. Mold can start to grow within 24-72 hours. It can get into your clothing, shoes, wallpaper, walls, carpet, furniture and building supports.  It is important to take care of mold promptly and properly to prevent it from spreading.  Mold spores can travel through the air and go throughout your home. The spores can also cause people to have allergic reactions.
