If you have a carpet, you know it can be a challenge to keep it clean. But it’s not enough that your carpet just looks clean. Carpets can trap a wide variety of odors which can then linger, giving your carpeted room an unpleasant smell that permeates throughout.
Tips for Removing Carpet Odors
What can you do to remove odors from carpet? Here are three useful ideas on how to get smells out of the carpet in your home.
1. Baking Soda
Ah, the miracle of baking soda. Baking soda is an all-purpose solution that’s well known for its ability to absorb odors. To use baking soda to remove odors that are trapped in the carpet, start by simply layering your carpet with baking soda, distributing a thin layer all throughout the affected area and smoothing out any clumps.
Let the baking soda sit and do its work for several hours — or an entire day if possible. Make sure you keep pets and children away from the area you are treating. Once enough time is passed, vacuum up the baking soda and all the odors with it!
This can be an effective treatment if you have smokers in your home. Smoke odor can easily trap itself in your carpet and can be difficult to get rid of. Leave several bowls of white vinegar around the room where the smoke order is prevalent. Believe it or not, this will absorb the odor from the air. Let it sit for 24 hours, then apply the baking soda treatment above. You can also strengthen your ability to remove stains and odors by spraying a white vinegar solution on your carpet, either on top of the baking soda or already mixed with baking soda.
3. Steam Cleaning
The only reliable way to remove stains and odors from your carpet long-term is with a quality commercial steam cleaning of the carpet. Steam cleaning lifts the smells and stains out of the carpet and leaves you only with luxurious, clean carpet.
