Even if you clean your house frequently, keeping it smelling pleasant can be difficult. Unpleasant aromas can make you and your family uncomfortable. They can also make your Liberty City, Texas, home less welcoming to visitors. Fortunately, you can get rid of bad smells by adding ventilation, using a dehumidifier and taking care of your HVAC system.

Add Ventilation

Modern homes use lots of insulation to save energy. But it can keep bad smells from escaping, too.

Add a ventilation system for your entire home or exhaust fans in your kitchen and bathrooms. You can quickly remove smoke from cooking, the smell of cleaning products, too much air freshener, dirt, dust, microorganisms, and more. An energy recovery ventilator (ERV) operates like a heat pump to save energy at the same time. In spring and summer, this device removes heat from fresh air and filters it before it enters your home.

Use a Dehumidifier

High humidity in spring and summer often leads to biological growth and musty or rotting scents. It can also attract pests such as cockroaches or mice. These creatures could leave droppings or even die in your ductwork. A dehumidifier will get rid of moisture in your home’s air and prevent these issues. You can use a portable unit in one or two rooms or have a whole-home version installed by a professional.

Maintain Your HVAC System

Change your air conditioner’s air filter once per month to keep unpleasant smells from spreading. Also, have your system checked by a professional at least once per year. Odors can come from dirty ductwork, refrigerant leaks and many other problems. An expert will fix these problems before they become more severe. As a result, they’ll remove the sources of many disgusting aromas.
