Detecting foul odors in the home can sometimes be a challenge, because the human body has a protecting defense that desensitizes the nose to odors that are lingering. So, it is possible that you might be living in a stinky home without realizing the seriousness of the problem.MP-Lockup-Extra-Horizontal-CMYK-2color

Whether you notice the smells on your own or you ask a friend if they can smell something strange, it is important that you clean the area to get rid of the problem. Better yet… don’t wait until your house starts stinking! Take a proactive approach to keeping them home clean and free of odors. Here are a few tips:

Let in Fresh Air

Opening windows can be a great way to bring in fresh air and rejuvenate your living space. It won’t eliminate the cause of the odors, but will help to dissipate the smell.

Daily Cleaning

Regular household tasks are essential to prevent foul odors in your home. Basic tasks such as taking out trash, washing the dishes, and keeping up with laundry will help keep your living space clean and pleasant.

Deep Cleaning

Even if you are consistent with those daily tasks, it is important to schedule regular times for deep cleaning. It is one of the most effective ways to identify and eliminate odor-causing agents. These cleaning tasks should include scrubbing toilets and tanks, fridge and freezer, garbage cans, oven, and more. It is also a good idea to have the carpets and upholstery cleaned and flush the disposal in the sink.

During deep cleaning, make sure to check for small, hidden spaces where water or mold might collect. For example, the foul smell could be coming from water that sits behind toilets or under the kitchen sink.
