Hosting Parties during the Holidays

During the holiday season, I adore hosting parties at my home. I always enjoy spending time with close friends and family members in a relaxed atmosphere. Are you already busily planning upcoming events at your home? Consider making your house look amazing when visitors arrive by hiring a professional cleaning service. A cleaning service can complete tedious chores such as vacuuming your carpets, mopping your hardwood floors, cleaning your oven, and dusting your furniture. On this blog, I hope you will discover the benefits of hiring a cleaning service before your guests are expected to arrive. Your home can be a spotless party paradise.

Common Carpet Odors And How To Remove Them


Having carpet that looks clean is only half the battle; you also want your carpet to smell fresh. Odor-ridden carpet is unpleasant and can have a negative effect on the overall comfort of the room and your entire home. Learn about some of the reasons why your carpet might have an awful scent and what you can do about it.


Moisture that is trapped deep within the fibers of the carpet can lead to a sour smell, even long after the moisture has dried. While walking on the carpet with wet shoes or spilling a glass of water can lead to this issue, poor cleaning practices can also contribute to the problem. 

When some people clean their carpets, they have a tendency to oversaturate the carpet fibers. Unfortunately, some people don't follow up this practice with a water extraction step. As a result, the moisture rests in the fibers and eventually causes a smell. The best way to remove and avoid this issue is to leave your carpet cleaning needs to a professional. 

Pet Stains

Even a pet that is housebroken might have an accident a time or two, but it's up to the pet owner to clean up these messes right away. If you don't make it a regular habit to clean up after your pet, this problem could be the reason the carpet smells. Pet urine contains elements of foul-smelling bacteria, so when the animal urinates on the floor, some traces of the bacteria is left behind.

To combat the problem, you need to have your carpet cleaned more often. For example, if you had the carpet cleaned once a year before you were a pet owner, you might need to have the carpet cleaned twice a year now.

Food Spills

If the room where you notice the bad carpet smell is also a room where you eat, the odor could be the result of frequent food spills. When you leave food out on the counter for an extended amount of time, it starts to decompose and grow bacteria. The food particles that hit your carpet will undergo a similar process.

When it comes to food stains, sure you can pick up most of the spill, but the grease and other juices that are left behind aren't as easy to remove. Only a professional cleaning can reach deep into the fibers and extract all the traces of food and odors they leave behind. 

Professional carpet cleaning services are about more than stain removal. They're also about deodorizing the carpet. Contact a carpet cleaning professional to rid your carpet of unpleasant odors.
