How do you remove smells from carpet?

Sometimes accidents happen that we can’t avoid. Whether your cat or dog left a present on the carpet, you spilt a cup of coffee, or there’s just a funky odour coming from your carpet over time. There are several ways to address these, you could simply plug in an air freshener, or maybe spray some disinfectant around. Ultimately though the best option is to get in touch with your professional carpet cleaning expert.

Sometimes its best to get a professional
By utilising several specific shampoos and deodorisers, a carpet cleaner can not only remove the source of the odour, but they can also leave the carpets smelling fresher for longer. This is accomplished using quality deodorisers, applied before, during or after your carpet clean. A quality carpet cleaner will be able to offer a variety of scents or products for your specific needs. From simple vanilla, or lavender smells, through to odour absorbing deodorisers that linger for weeks, breaking down the odour causing bacteria living inside your carpet fibre.

Make sure they’re utilising the best equipment for the job
It’s always important to ensure your carpet cleaner is using a deodoriser product, and don’t be afraid to ask for specifics about what product(s) they use, after all, you’ll be living with the smell.

In a pinch, you can always try DIY
Sometimes getting a professional carpet cleaner isn’t always an option, to assist with deodorising rooms, especially after an accident, or to remove that funky smell you can simply spread some bi-carb soda around your carpet. Using a handful and spreading through your carpet with a small broom or brush will allow the bicarb to get into the fibres. Leaving it for a couple of hours and vacuuming it out can help relieve some odours.
