Carpets are a super cozy element when it comes to decorating a property. In addition to acting as insulators during winter, they are a good "filter" to keep the air clean since they trap dust and pollen between their fabrics. They can also trap moisture, dust mites, and other odor-causing debris. Thus, learning how to deodorize your carpet is essential. If you need advice on this matter, continue reading the carpet maintenance tips listed below.

Carpet Maintenance Tips to Deal With Unwanted Odors

Trace the Source

If your carpet smells bad, start by looking for the cause. That way, you will know how to deal with the problem and prevent it from recurring. For example, if you notice that your carpet emits a musty smell, it could be due to an unnoticed leak. In such a case, you would need to repair the malfunction before taking care of the carpet. Also, the odor could be due to food leftovers, pet urine, or poor cleaning habits.


Your carpet could have dust mites, dust, and food embedded between its fabrics. Such large particles can be a nuisance when it comes time to deodorize the carpet. Thus, be sure to vacuum your carpet thoroughly before moving on to the next steps.

Sprinkle Baking Soda

After vacuuming, pour baking soda on the carpet. This product is an antacid, which means it will neutralize the smelly acidic gases on your carpet. For baking soda to work, it needs time, so let it sit on your carpet overnight.

Turn to White Vinegar

If baking soda doesn't eliminate unpleasant odors, use white vinegar. For this, take a spray bottle and add the vinegar. Then, spray the affected carpet area with the liquid and wait 15 minutes for it to settle and act. Finally, absorb the vinegar with towels. Make sure to dry the carpet completely with the help of dehumidifiers and fans.
