The Vancouver Carpet Cleaners at Angelo’s Offer Tips on Beating Bad Smells

Feb 28th, 2019 | by Angelo |    0   

As a team of Vancouver carpet cleaners, the technicians at Angelo’s FabriClean have a wealth of experience dealing with all kinds of household challenges. One of the most common at this time of the year is refreshing carpets and rugs that may be holding onto pungent smells—a problem that only gets worse in a season where doors and windows are kept closed.

While the softness and warmth of a carpet is comforting too many, the absorbent fibres can also hold onto smells from accidents, spills, and smoking. But just because a carpet smells bad is not necessarily a reason to purchase a new one. A little bit of elbow grease along with some common household products should do the trick.

The most common household item used for removing bad smells is none other than humble baking soda. But before any sprinkling takes place, it’s important to prepare the area first.

Any dirt or soiling in the area should be removed before even attempting to treat the smells. That means blotting away wetness, removing any dried-on spills, and dabbing away any noticeable staining. The carpet needs to be clean.

After the area is dry, it’s time to neutralize the smell. Sprinkle a thin layer of baking soda over the area. It needs to sit for several hours—leave it on overnight if this is an option.

The next step is to get out the vacuum and suction away the baking soda. If any staining is visible, it may be time to turn to professional products or, better yet, a professional carpet cleaner who has the skills and equipment to freshen and beautify carpets and rugs.
