Six Ways to Make Your Home Smell Better

You may know … or not know, that your house smells bad, and you are playing the game of “find that stink”. You think you’ve found it, but still… that smell lingers. Don’t be embarrassed, let’s just address it. Here are some tips that will help you get your house to smell better so that you’ll be happier at home:
Identify your trouble areas. Kitchens, bathrooms, the garbage, sinks, laundry rooms, and refrigerators are all common causes of odour. Your problem could be one or several of these culprits. It is important that you identify the source of your odour problem so that you know where to focus your energy.
Try an odour treatment. Odour treatments such as Fresh Start® Odour Treatment can be a quick and effective way to neutralize odours in your home.
Create a pleasant smell. Once you have neutralized the odour, you can decide how you want your home to smell. Try essential oils as a spray or with a diffuser to make your home smell like mandarin, cranberry, or lavender. Alternatively, you could also use a scented candle, potpourri, or incense. If you are feeling particularly ambitious or you have a guest on the way, you could even put some cookies or cinnamon rolls in the oven and let the sweet smell rise through the air.
Clean your carpets. Carpets are notorious for holding on to odours. When you’re trying to make your home smell better, a good first step is to clean your carpet with a carpet cleaner or to try an odour treatment.
Identify bigger problems. If you home has issues such as plumbing problems or mould, you will not be able to remove the odour until you address them. Once you get rid of these underlying problems, you can then deal with any leftover smells.
Get plants. Not only do plants make your home more welcoming, but they are also natural air cleaners. You can even choose a plant with a pleasant fragrance such as jasmine or citrus.
