What’s That Smell? Sources of Odour in Your Home and How to Deal with Them

Do you ever just walk into your house and smell something funky? It gets stranger when you can’t put your finger on what it is or where it’s coming from.

While even the cleanest house can be subject to these random smells and there are many sources that can cause this.

Read on to know who the common culprits are and how to fix this issue.

Your Garbage Disposal Unit

This is a common culprit for kitchen odour. Feeding food scraps into the drain you run the risk of accumulating sludge and grime if the disposal unit isn’t working correctly. Make sure the unit is functioning well and disposes of the waste immediately. Furthermore, be sure to keep your disposal unit clean so that there is no build-up of waste products that could give off bad smells.  If this doesn’t help, you can buy garbage disposal unit deodorizers.

Your Refrigerator

If your food items are going bad, chances are this will affect how your fridge smells. You can resort to a few DIY tricks to combat any odour that’s coming from rotting produce, old meat, and spoiled dairy products.

The first thing you’ll need to do is to get rid of the source of the smell. Next, fill a mason jar with baking soda and poke a hole through the lid. Baking soda is known to absorb foul smells. Since most odours have a higher pH level, baking soda lowers the pH, neutralizing the substance that causes the odour.

Your Pets

You may love you furry pals, but one thing is irrefutable: they can be difficult to handle at times. Just like humans, they can get smelly. The remedy here is to make sure you bathe them and take care of their hygiene.

Another way pets can contribute to household odours is if they aren’t trained. If you notice urine stains or faeces, try to sanitise these areas as soon as possible.
