There is a definite difference in looking at a picture of a beautiful apartment and actually smelling the air in that apartment!
A carpet can look clean and new and still hold odors from the previous tenant. But do not fret – you may not have to break the lease yet…there are some quick fixes to help reduce some of the odor OR if you want to go pro, Angelo’s can help treat the rug or carpet with our professional treatment.
Quick fixes for a better smelling apartment
- Open all of the windows, especially ones that can produces some air flow. One open window in a room is not as effective as a few windows.
- Humidity can take a slightly smelly room and make it extremely smelly. By using a dehumidifier, you can reduce the humidity and in effect, reduce the odor.
- Use a fresh box of baking soda – sprinkle it on the carpet and let it stay there for 1+ hours. Vacuum it up and it should help clear the air a bit.
If you are about to move into an empty apartment and notice the odor, it could be a great time to call us before moving day! Or if you have tried to eliminate the odor and have not had any luck, it could be time to call the pro’s.
