Odors in your house can be difficult to spot, especially if you are already used to them. Foul odors create an untidy and unpleasant environment and it’s crucial to remove their source to get rid of them. For this reason at Colonial Cleanpro in Chesterfield County, we would like to share you a few ideas to handle this minor but important detail. 


Cooking pungent foods may leave a distinctive odor in this area, not to mention the grease built up in your stove and countertops. Clean and wash every surface in your kitchen and simmer two cups of white vinegar to absorb any odors. Also, place an open box of baking soda in your refrigerator and discard any rotten foods. Last but not least, pour a cup of hot water into your sink to remove any bacteria and smells from it. Don’t forget to carry out these tasks at least every week.


Open doors and windows or use an exhaust fan to keep this area ventilated and avoid any moisture that can develop mold. Wash the tiles and toilet frequently and look for any leaks. If there’s an unpleasant smell coming from your drain, boil water with 2 teaspoons of baking soda and pour it into it. Remember to change your hand towels and wash your mat.  


Pour white vinegar on small bowls and place them all over your bedroom, this should take care of any odors, plus you should also open your windows and curtains. Change your bedding frequently and don’t forget to vacuum your mattress. Also, sprinkle baking soda all over your carpet and let it set for a few hours, use your vacuum cleaner to remove it.
