Fight Odors All Over Your Home

Keeping a clean home usually guarantees that you won't have to deal with any lingering unpleasant odors. However, even if your house looks spotless, some odors can somehow still make their way into your home. If you're putting your house on the market, know how to eliminate odors and avoid other mistakes that will keep potential buyers away. Here at Riva Title Company in Coral Gables, we can give you some tips to successfully eliminate any odors lingering around your home.

Remove Kitchen Odors

The kitchen is especially prone to bad odors because of all the food it contains. Wiping down your counters, sink and cabinets might not be enough to prevent odors. Make sure you take out the trash daily in order to prevent nasty odors from food you have disposed of. Wash dishes as soon as possible to avoid allowing bad odors to sit. It is especially important that you wash your sink and drain regularly. Flush the drain with hot water daily and with baking soda at least once a week. Don't try to wash your sponges if they've become pungent, simply throw them out and get a replacement.

Eliminate Living Room Odors

Because the living room sees so much activity, it can pick up some unpleasant odors. Open the windows in order to allow ventilation and air circulation. You don't have to leave them open for long, just a few minutes can help some odors disappear. Make sure your carpets and upholstery are vacuumed regularly. To get rid of smells that are already present, sprinkle some baking soda on the stinky area, let it sit and then vacuum. Walls can absorb odors as well. Wipe them down using a mixture of water and liquid dish soap to remove any smells they may have absorbed. Remember that scented candles are a great way to keep your home smelling nice because they are subtle and not overwhelming like some sprays and room fresheners.
