Tips and Tricks To Combat Pesky Household Odors

A Guide on How to Get Rid of Nasty Smells in Your Home – Offered by a Reputable House Cleaning Service Provider

Just like everyone else, I bet you too keep your windows and doors shut with the onset of cold weather. This means that you’ve probably noticed the musty and stale smell that starts settling in your home once the windows and doors are closed. Although you can spray copious amounts of air freshener around the house, here are some house cleaning tips that you may find a little more successful.

Bad Refrigerator Smell
Cleaning Service in Shreveport LARefrigerators tend to retain bad odors, and it seems that even if you take all the food out and clean it properly, the smell still doesn’t go away. We have a trick for you. Buy a box of baking soda, open it up, and put it in the back of your fridge, on one of the shelves. It looks like baking soda catches odors. Many house cleaners also use activated charcoal. You can find it it almost any home and bath store.

Cigarette Smoke
If you’re a smoker, then you probably got used to the cigarette smoke inside your home, and don’t even smell it anymore. However, cigarette smoke usually settles in carpets and upholstery, and stays there for long periods of time. The solution is, again baking soda. Sprinkle some powder on the affected areas, and leave it there for about two hours. Using a vacuum cleaner equipped with a HEPA filter, remove all the baking soda powder. If this doesn’t help, consider hiring a professional cleaning service provider.

Smelly Garbage Disposal
There is nothing worse than the smell of last night’s dinner rotting in the sink. If your garbage disposal smells bad, then pour white vinegar down the disposal. An even better idea is to freeze some vinegar into ice cubes, and let the garbage disposal chop them.
