3 Things That Can Leave Behind Odors in Your Home

home odors

There are few things worse than smelling something foul that you can't quite put your finger on. To avoid a frustrating experience of investigating the source of the odor, keep these common culprits in mind.

Smoke

Smoke damage is notoriously difficult to effectively clean, and the average homeowner will only get so far with regular household solutions. So even if you've tried normal fixes like Febreze or general cleansers, you may not have made much of dent in ridding your home of the smell.

Mold

That stuffy or stale odor you can smell in the air may need a lot more care and attention than just general cleaning. Even the most well-kept homes will likely experience some type of mold or mildew at some point. But far more than just unappealing scents, mold spores can be ingested through the air and can be extremely dangerous. It can even make you or your family sick.

Sewage

This is a fairly basic scent that all homeowners would like to minimize in their homes, but it can be mistaken if it seems to be coming from an odd place. Depending on how your pipes are arranged, sewage smells can occur practically anywhere in your home.

Each of these three household odors are best taken care of by professionals.
