Now that we’ve tackled the post-installation odours let’s spruce things up and make your home smell amazing!
1. Cleaning Crusade
Regular cleaning is your secret weapon. Dust, dirt, and lingering food odours are your scent foes. Get that mop ready, and dust off your superhero cape!
Make a schedule and stick to it. Vacuum carpets, mop floors, wipe down surfaces, and wash linens regularly to maintain a clean environment. Mr. Roofer and other experts agree that a clean home is a happy one.
2. Let the Breeze In
Proper ventilation is your ace in the hole. Open those windows to kick out the stale and invite the fresh air party.
After cooking, cleaning, or when your home feels stuffy, open the windows and let the outside air circulate. Proper ventilation improves indoor air quality and keeps your home smelling fresh.
3. Nature’s Scented Oils
Ditch those chemical air fresheners and go natural. Your new best friends are your essential oil diffusers, potpourri made from dried flowers and herbs, or simmering citrus slices and spices.
Essential oils like lavender, eucalyptus, and citrus can add pleasant scents and offer potential aromatherapy benefits. They’re a win-win for both your nose and your well-being.
4. Greener Indoors
Houseplants aren’t just pretty; they’re air-purifying champs. Lavender, jasmine, or eucalyptus – pick your green warrior.
Certain houseplants like aloe vera, snake plants, and peace lilies enhance your decor and help purify the air by absorbing indoor pollutants. They add a pleasant natural scent while promoting a healthier environment.
5. Trash Bin TLC
Trash bins are often the odour culprit. Keep them clean, use liners, and sprinkle some baking soda at the bottom to absorb those unwanted smells.
Regularly clean and disinfect your trash cans, use trash liners to prevent spills and leaks, and sprinkle baking soda at the bottom of the trash can to absorb odours. Empty the trash regularly to avoid allowing garbage to sit and produce unpleasant smells.
