Clean indoor air is vital to a healthy home. Yet, persistent odors from pets, garbage, bathrooms, and other contributors can make it difficult to keep a house smelling fresh all the time. Fortunately, there are several ways to address unwanted aroma problems by either mechanically purifying the air or chemically neutralizing stains at the source. Any of these products will help keep your home comfortable and inviting.

Purifiers circulate or electronically treat air to remove dust mites, allergens, pet dander, and odorous fumes and gasses like tobacco smoke or hazardous volatile organic compounds (VOC). These devices use a variety of technologies that range from ionization to plasma waves, ultra-violet light, and mechanical purification to clean air. Each method has advantages and disadvantages, but for a tried-and-true solution, consider a filter with a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) component that works in conjunction with an activated-carbon layer. A true HEPA filter traps the most pervasive irritants down to 0.3 microns, while the carbon screens out finer materials, fumes, gases, and other odor-causing agents.

When Fido has an accident on the living room carpet, it’s not enough to clean the air in that room. You need to neutralize the stain itself. An enzymatic spray that attacks odors from pet urine, feces, and vomit is the best way to spot treat the scene of the crime. Deep soiling and spills may require professional steam cleaning, but for emergency use, every pet owner should keep a spray bottle of neutralizer in the pantry.

Bad smells are not always the result of an accident. You can absorb common odors from mildew stains, sweaty clothes, stagnant air, and other sources with carbon, similar to a forced-air mechanical filter. Passive odor traps may seem simplistic, but they are an economical and effective way to corral funky air from the gym locker to the laundry hamper.
