    How to get rid of odours

    Pinpont where the smells are coming from

    This may be an obvious point, however, we tend to notice the smell but continue with our daily lives and never really addressing the issue. On the other hand, it can be extremely difficult to determine where the odour is coming from. Here are some common areas where you may find unpleasant smells

    Gaps in floors and Underneath Objects:

    Check to see if you have gaps in your floor boards to the sub-floor areas, these may be letting in moisture and damp. If you have renovated and removed old carpet only to find that there was mould damage under it, this could be a sign that the sub-floor area of you home needs better ventilation. Skiting gaps can also let in unwanted moisture.
    Looking under beds and other large furniture when ever you move them around is important as they can be harbouring nasty odour causing issues also.

    Mould :

    This can form in damp areas of your home. Wet and musty items can result in both mould and unpleasant odours. If mould is left, this can damage your furniture, timber structures and leather goods, such as handbags and shoes. Riteflo damp rods can assist with stopping mould growth behind furniture and in wardrobes by moving the air with their heat, creating air-flow.

    Opening Windows & Doors

    If you have been closing your windows often because the outside elements aren’t agreeable, it might be a good idea to open them every now and then to allow cross-breeze. This prevents dampness and stale air which may result in mould. If you are forgetful and would prefer the windows closed when you leave the home, you may be interested in Riteflo window ventilation systems. These can be installed to keep airflow throughout the day without any need to adjust your windows.
