Tackling tough carpet odors.


Tackling tough carpet odors.


If you’ve recently moved into a home that had a previous tenant, or if your roommate has moved out, chances are the carpets need some help with odor issues.

For starters, it’s always a good idea to have the carpets cleaned. You can do it yourself, if you are feeling energetic. Look for a “green” cleaner in your grocery store to avoid products that put toxins into the air. (Seventh Generation and Simple Green make carpet cleaners.) If you are renting a cleaning machine, rinse the chamber before using it to remove any chemicals from the previous user.

If you have a large area that needs cleaning, you may want to hire professionals. Look for companies that use “green” products, such as plant-based solvents, and those that use nontoxic steam extraction.

Give the carpets plenty of time to dry before moving your furniture back into place.

In the meantime, plug in your AirRestore Air Naturalizers. It will help tackle air pollutants, odors and dander that may be lingering in the air as well as particles that have been stirred up by all the activity.
