All carpet owners have been in a similar situation – perhaps a spilled meal, or worse yet a naughty pet. The result is a carpet with an enduring smell that could wake the dead (likely so they can relocate). Unfortunately, the odors tend to only get worse with repeat offenders. An example would be using a product for stain removal, but failing to notice the smell until another accident happens, and so on. The smell will only get stronger and by the time it becomes unbearable, removing it will be more than a simple chore.
It might be an honest mistake not to notice a foul smell brewing, but if it continues to be ignored, the harder it will be to clean. Mold removal will seem like a walk in the park. Fortunately there are a few ways to deal with fouler odor removal, and we over at carpet cleaning Huntington Beach have a sure fire method.
While products that specifically tackle the odor of carpets can and should be used, sometimes it might not be enough. Water restoration is a good tactic but can only go so far. When it comes down to dealing with the fouler odors, a simple household item such as baking soda can do wonders. It might not seem like the best home carpet cleaning method but it certainly does its job.
Depending on the severity of the odor, dab a small amount of baking soda, using more the worse the odor is and apply it along with a product for odor removal. Let the baking soda sit on the carpet for a while so that it can absorb the stench. Afterwards, when you can no longer sense the offending stench, you can vacuum the baking soda. This guarantees that the odor is removed without resorting to vinegar.
