Carpets, more or less, absorb the surrounding smells just like many other fabrics do. If you clean your home regularly, then it is more likely your carpet to get a fresh and pleasant smell. However, your carpet may absorb unpleasant odours as well, if there are children or pets in the house.

Neutralize these odours by using a homemade odour remover, suggested by expert cleaners in St John’s Wood. Here are the instructions to follow:

1. Get the following items: baking soda, white vinegar, spray bottle and a vacuum cleaner.

2. Sprinkle a nice layer of baking soda over the entire carpet. Baking soda has the quality to absorb different smells, making it the perfect natural product to get rid of bad odours from your carpet.

3. Allow the baking soda to sit on the carpet for at least a day to get effective results.

4. Vacuum the carpet to remove the baking soda, and smell it to make sure all of the smell is gone. If you still sense a slight smell, repeat the process.

5.If the baking soda didn’t achieve the wanted result, spray the carpet with white vinegar, but do not over wet it. If the carpet is soaked with vinegar, you will need to rinse it out. The white vinegar will eliminate any smells in your carpet, and its own smell will fade when the carpet dries.

6. Allow the carpet air dry, and inspect it for remaining odours. If there is any remaining smell that you don’t like, consider consulting with carpet cleaning St John’s Wood team for another suitable odour-neutralizing cleaner.
