Nothing is more annoying than coming home to a smelly house, especially if you have unexpected guests with you. Moreover, if you plan to move out and terminate your lease, your land lord might refuse to give you back your full deposit based solely on that foul smell. So, once you determine that you have a problem with the way your dwelling smells, you should look for the source of the problem. Pets, cigarette smoke, mildew and mould can permanently “deodorise” your home by creating foul fragrances which stick to walls, furniture and even carpeting. Even your admirable cooking skills could lead to air pollution at your premises!

Sadly, even if you use the most high-tech air freshener and air-filtering devices, you won't succeed in your mission of removing bad smells unless you clean your house properly. Luckily there are a few tricks you can use to make that happen:

Ventilate Every Room


The simplest and easiest way to deal with unpleasant fragrances is to open up the windows and let fresh air in. Even in during the winter, you need to ventilate the space. You could just leave the windows cracked for 10 – 15 minutes and it will be worth it. Especially during the cold months, opening your home to “new” air is the best way to reduce humidity, thus not allow mould and mildew to take ground. Last but not least, fresh air naturally fight cooking smells and cigarette smoke, so you should take advantage of the cheapest deodorising method, provided by Mother Nature herself.

Keep Everything Clean

Next to ventilating the space, keeping it clean is the second best way to prevent bad smell from permanently taking place in your home. Textile surfaces like carpets and upholstered furniture need to be vacuum cleaned at least once a week. If they already have some lingering smell tuck to them, you can generously sprinkle them with baking soda. The natural cleaning substance absorbs fragrances, so you will be able to deal with the problem in no time. Naturally, booking expert Melbourne carpet cleaners is also a fine way to deodorise your carpeting and with it the entire dwelling. Professional cleaning should be executed every six months of more often, depending on whether you have small kids and pets.

While speaking of cleaning, I must warn you that textile surfaces aren't the only ones which could get attacked by bad smell. Actually, your tiles, wooden flooring and furniture could also become suitable host for unpleasant odours, if you leave them unattended for long. You should use an appropriate cleaning product for each surface or mix your own multi-purpose cleaner with vinegar and water. If you think that vinegar “perfume” is just as awful as foul smell, you can substitute it with lemon juice which has the same anti-bacterial and sanitizing qualities.

Odd Places That Also Need Regular Sanitation


In case you really need to have your home looking and smelling its best, you should also take care of some spots you ordinarily wouldn't think to clean. Light bulbs and AC filters also need sanitation from time to time. Due to the high temperatures, oils, dust and debris that have accumulated on the bulb will burn and release displeasing fragrance in the air. Just use a damp cloth and wipe the bulb to remove any build-up. Be careful to do it during the day when you aren't using it – you wouldn't want to mix water and electricity!

When speaking of bad smell sources which we tend to forget, I must remind you that the filter of your AC is amongst them. It must be changed as specified in the manufacturer's manual – usually every few months. In between, however, you also need to clean it once a month to remove build up.
