Snuff Out Bad Odors with These Tips

Bad odors can plague your home and make it unpleasant to be around. One unfortunate side effect, however, is that if you smell the odor for long enough, you might stop noticing it. So even if you think a smell isn't there, someone visiting you might pick up on it. It can be difficult to get rid of bad smells, especially if they might have embedded themselves in your walls, carpets, or furniture. But if you use the right methods, you can change things and get a fresh smelling house back again. Start by doing the things below to get rid of and prevent unpleasant odors in your home.

Clean the Carpets and Upholstered Furniture
Bad smells can easily get embedded into carpets, as well as upholstered furniture. Things like the odors caused by pets or food seep into fabrics and can be difficult to remove. Giving them a thorough clean helps to get rid of unpleasant odors, so everything will smell good again. Although you can do it yourself, it makes more sense to use a professional cleaning service. They have better tools to do the cleaning for you. Companies like All Brite Chem-Dry have carpet cleaning methods that it's hard for you to replicate on your own. If you do want to do it yourself, try removing and washing furniture covers and using a steam cleaner on carpets.

Clean Appliances
Various appliances can easily start smelling unpleasant if you don't clean them regularly. Sometimes they can also have a fault which means that dirty water collects in them or other issues cause bad smells. Your freezer, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine or dryer could start smelling unpleasant. Sometimes, giving them a good clean is the simple answer. You can also use various things to deodorize them. For example, if cheese is making your fridge smell, you can use a fridge deodorizer to deal with the problem. Make sure any water-based appliances drain properly too.

Install Extractor Fans
Extractor fans help to keep the air flowing in your home, removing stale air from areas where you don't want it. They can help to control odors in your bathroom and kitchen in particular. If you do a lot of cooking with oils, spices or other ingredients that can leave smells, an extractor fan or hood over the stove is a good idea. A fan is also useful in the bathroom to help improve hygiene.
Make Lifestyle Changes
You should think about whether there are any lifestyle changes you can make that would help you prevent bad odors. For example, if you have a dog, making sure she's clean and dry before she's allowed inside is a good idea. Or ensuring that you always cook with a window open or an extractor fan running could help to cut down on smells from food. A few lifestyle changes can stop bad smells coming back once you get rid of them.

You don't want bad odors in your home, so take the time to get rid of them. If you're not even sure if they exist, try bringing in an outside nose!

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
