Assembling the necessary tools and following the right process is crucial when dealing with persistent carpet odors. Here are some tips to help you eradicate carpet odors effectively:

You’ll need a spray bottle, household vinegar, baking soda, and warm water.

Apply a generous amount of baking soda to the soiled area. Allow it to sit and work into the surface by leaving it overnight or for at least 24 hours.

After the baking soda has had time to work, sweep up the remaining powder using a dustpan and brush. Use a vacuum cleaner with strong suction to thoroughly remove the baking soda from deep within the carpet fibers.

Some strong odors may require repeated attempts. If the smell persists, reapply more baking soda and repeat the process over the next 24 to 48 hours. Persistence is key to eliminating stubborn odors.

Check if your carpet is suitable for vinegar application. If it is, spray vinegar directly onto the affected area using a spray bottle. Use enough vinegar to eliminate the odor but be cautious not to oversaturate the carpet.

Let the vinegar soak into the carpet for about 15 minutes. Blot the area with a clean lint-free cloth to remove excess vinegar.

Spray clean cold water onto the area and blot it with another clean, dry cloth to remove moisture.

Allow the carpet to air dry naturally. Proper drying is important to prevent the growth of mold and mildew.

Remember, this process requires patience and time. If you prefer a professional touch or need immediate results, you can always rely on a reputable carpet cleaning company like Carpet Cleaning Kings.
