If you're worried that your home has a less than pleasant scent, there are plenty of things you can do to correct this! Check out these tips for a better smelling home.

How to Make Your Home Smell Great

Keeping a tidy home can be a struggle, especially during the summer months. While your home may look tidy and in order, you may notice that there are still some lingering smells you just can't seem to get rid of. Luckily, there are tons of easy solutions that can help you eliminate these odors once and for all. The following tips can help you freshen up the odors in your home.

Take out the Trash

If you've forgotten to take out the trash, it may be the first thing you notice when you get home. Avoid allowing your trash to sit for days, or even longer than a day because this can really affect the scent of your entire home. The trash in your kitchen and bathroom should be taken out daily because they usually contain the most smelly of elements. Your kitchen garbage will usually contain food scraps that can go bad and really start to smell. To avoid having your trash add its distinct scent to your home, make taking it out part of your daily routine. Consider taking it out to the garbage can every day on your wait out.

Clean out the Garbage Disposal

Another odor that may be coming from your kitchen is the bad stench caused by your garbage disposal. This little part in your sink is supposed to get rid of food waste, but this waste can sometimes get stuck in your sink and really start to smell. Just like in your garbage, pieces of food that have been lodged in there for a bit can go bad and stink up your entire kitchen. To avoid this, try to ensure there are no food chunks stuck in there. If there are, pour some water down the drain and turn on the garbage disposal to remove them. Next, wash the garbage disposal with warm water. If there is still a scent left over, throw some lemon or citrus slices in the garbage disposal along with water. This can help neutralize any lingering odors.

Keep Things Clean

It's no secret that a clean home will smell a lot better than a messy home that hasn't been cleaned in a while. Because of this, it's important that you keep up with you daily and weekly cleaning routines. Sweeping, mopping, and vacuuming are very important when it comes to eliminating odors, especially if you have young children or pets at home. It's also a good idea to make a rule against eating in bedrooms since dishes can go missing in there and add to any already existing odors. A great way to eliminate odors that may be emanating from your carpet is by getting a professional carpet cleaning. The carpet experts at Tacoma Cleanpro can help remove any odors coming from your carpet. Schedule your carpet cleaning by contacting Tacoma Cleanpro at (253) 229- 7499.

Try a Stovetop Solution

If your home doesn't smell bad but it also isn't smelling as great as you'd like, avoid those heavily scented sprays that can be overpowering. Instead, try out a simmering pot solution that is natural and leaves a light, aromatic scent behind. There are tons of simmering pot recipes you can try that will leave your home smelling like cinnamon, citrus, lavender, and many other natural scents.

Use Some Candles

Candles can be tricky for homeowners who have small children or pets in the home. There is always the danger of an accidental fire caused by a candle, which is why this tip isn't about lighting candles around your home. Candles can give off great scents, but they don't have to be lit to leave behind a pleasant odor. In fact, freshly scented candles can be left in drawers and closets (unlit) to improve the scent of your items. Every time you open a drawer or a closet where you have left a candle or two, you will be greeted with a nice smell. If you leave them in your linen closet, your linens will hold onto these smells as well.
