The home is the place where we want to be able to relax the most and be ourselves. That is why we spend hundreds of dollars in getting a home we want and decorating it to our style. Sometimes though no matter how hard we try there are times when it gets dirty and disorganized.
Cleaning the home on a daily basis helps – but for some of us it is not good enough. The worst thing to have to deal with is coming home to a strange smell. The best way to get rid of this is to know where that odd smell is coming from. Unfortunately it is not always easy to try to pinpoint it. Luckily there are things that you can try.
When this is a problem the best thing that you can do is to pick up and clean the most obvious places. The first room to work on is the kitchen. This is where we do all our cooking and where all of the trash sits. If the trash is full or has some strong smelling food inside of it than you need to empty it right away.
If that did not help than go to the sink. Any dirty dishes sitting there should be washed and dried immediately. This could be causing the smell, especially if there is any food stuck to the plates and bowls.
If the smell is still around than you need to look in other rooms for what might be causing it. I would try to look in the laundry room as the next obvious suspect. You might be surprised to know that what you are smelling is mold. Wet clothes sitting for days will cause this. Just put in a load and hope it goes away. Also make sure to clean the hamper of any mold that is inside of it.
