Tips for A Great Smelling Home ~ Odor Contol and Carpet Cleaning, Victoria BC


While a key factor  to improving air quality is removing carpet and rug odors, which in many cases requires regularly cleaning your carpets and rugs, only 15 percent clean their carpet at least once a year.

Following four-step process is the best way to successfully remove odor from your carpet and rugs:

  • Removing the source as possible
  • Cleaning affected surfaces and materials
  • Treat the odor source with an appropriate odor counteractant (sanitizer, disinfectant, enzyme)
  • Sealing restorable surfaces as necessary, such as the sub-floor, if practical

Many sources of odor, including pet urine and tobacco smoke, need special procedures and techniques and are best performed by a certified cleaning professional.

Odor in homes and buildings can be a result of many sources that can include pet urine, disaster contaminates, moisture problems or just plain dirt and grime. Regular scheduled cleaning maintenance  automatically removes the sources of most soiling odors.

Pet urine decontamination normally requires more specialized deodorizing techniques. To remove musty odor associated with moisture, ultimately it's important to identify and correct the moisture (high humidity) intrusion problem. Odor associated with disaster contaminates (smoke, trauma events) requires highly specialized procedures and techniques.
