What to Know About Unpleasant Home Odors

Have you ever been in a room and noticed an unpleasant scent but couldn’t quite put your finger on where it was coming from? Does your house always seem to smell off, no matter how often you clean? If so, you’re not alone. Poor air quality and accompanying odors can be a major headache for Nassau County homeowners. Fortunately, you can take some simple steps to get rid of smelly odors in your home. 

SERVPRO of East Meadow/Westbury is here to share why your house may be retaining odors and what you can do about it.

What Causes Unpleasant Odors?

There are several potential causes for bad smells in homes. One common cause is poor ventilation. When airflow is inadequate, scents linger in the air instead of being released outside. Even if you clean regularly, the same odor remains until the air circulates properly throughout your home. Other common culprits include mold or mildew buildup (often due to high humidity levels) and pet accidents or messes that have not been properly cleaned up.

How Can I Improve My Home’s Air Quality?

The first step is improving your home’s ventilation system by ensuring fresh air can regularly enter and circulate throughout your home; this will naturally reduce lingering odors and improve indoor air quality overall. An HVAC technician can install fans or vents in problem areas such as kitchens and bathrooms to help increase airflow. 

Additionally, you should check for mold growth on walls, ceilings, floors, and furniture; if any is present, call a professional immediately to clean it effectively and safely. Finally, keep up with regular cleaning tasks like vacuuming carpets and washing bedding so that any messes don’t become sources of bad smells down the road.
