There are few things as annoying, irritating and embarrassing as having a musty or smoky smell in your home. Online there are numerous solutions that promise results. However, most of them just don’t work.
This article was written in order to help you discover a few simple products that really work.
Before we mention the products we would like to mention one often overlooked, but very important, part of the process. That is getting rid of the source of the odor.
Eliminate The Source Of The Musty Smell
While this may seem obvious it is surprising how often it is overlooked! If you hide the smell, it will come back as soon as the trick is over. If you clean and get rid of the smell without eliminating the source, then it won’t take long to come back.
Musty smells are caused by humidity. Either a leak in the roof, a wall, or the plumbing can result in moisture that causes mold spores and a musty smell to develop. In this case, simply locate and fix the problem. Once the source is eliminated you can follow the tips further below in this article in order to completely and permanently get rid o the musty smell.
We have a wide variety of products that can be used to get rid of mold and ensure that the smell does not come back. However, it is important to start by eliminating the source so as to not create new problems.
Eliminate The Source Of The Smoke
If the cause of the smoke is you or someone who lives with you smoking in the house, simply set the rule that smoking must be done outside. Remove all ashtrays from the house as they will continue to smell.
If the smoke is from a fire, then the situation is a little different. In this case, it is important to use proper restoration methods. We have the right products for you in the Odor Encapsulants section of our website. The right Odor Encapsulants will cover over the affected area and not allow the smoky smell to be released into the atmosphere.
