What makes your home and office smell better

Carpets can trap odor and make a room or office smell.  Most of our customers try to go as long as possible before having their carpets professionally cleaned.  This is a very big mistake because even if you can not see dirt, there also the smell.

HOW TO GET MILDEW SMELL FROM CARPET – METHOD # 1

  1. As soon as you discover the smell, begin to vacuum the affected area as soon as possible. If possible, use a large, more powerful vacuum instead of a small hand vacuum. This will help remove even more dust and dirt from the affected area.
  2. Mix 1 cup of vinegar with 2 cups of warm water. Be sure to not add too much vinegar, as you don’t want to create too strong of a vinegar smell in your home by over wetting the carpet.
  3. Pour this vinegar and warm water solution into a spray bottle before applying to the carpet. This will ensure you don’t soak the carpet fibers, as this could cause new mildew deposits to form.
  4. Next, pour a generous amount of baking soda directly onto the affected area of your carpet.
  5. Give the carpet some time to dry before vacuuming the baking soda completely

Try different ways to ensure that your carpet has a nice refreshing smell daily, carpet fresh, room spray etc.  Just make sure that you get your carpet professionally cleaning often to prevent this from happening.
