How to Prevent Carpet Odors

What Causes Your Carpet to Smell

Are You Making These Carpet Cleaning Mistakes?

Does an unpleasant odor greet you as you walk into the room? While there can be many causes for a smelly space, your carpet might be the culprit. How can you prevent carpet odors? Read on for tips and tricks to keep your carpet smelling fresh.

How to Prevent Carpet Odors

  • Address stains as soon as possible. Oftentimes, it’s the carpet padding that smells, not the actual carpet. In the future, pull out your cleaning supplies as soon as you spot the cat accident or spilled cup of coffee to prevent the padding from being infiltrated. Also, be sure the tool you use to clean your carpet can reach the padding without leaving standing water behind and that it’s recommended by the carpet manufacturer.
  • Vacuum high-traffic areas frequently. Is your living room carpet the go-to spot for kids to lounge during snack time? Do you go straight through a hallway with a carpet after coming inside, rain or shine? Does your dog like to enjoy his treats in the middle of a carpeted room? While crumbs and debris might not seem like a problem now, over time, they become ground into the carpet fibers and cause lingering carpet odors. Pull out the vacuum m0re regularly to clean up the hidden messes before they stick around.
  • Dry thoroughly. Whether you just cleaned your carpet or you spilled a cup of water, make sure a room with a wet carpet has adequate airflow. You can do this by opening windows and doors, turning on ceiling fans, and strategically placing portable fans.
