Contributing to the overall smell that is otherwise unpleasant in your home are the host of sources emitting odors. To completely eliminate odors, you have to remove the source and from there you can effectively clear odors from your home. Where sometimes it can be a challenge to realize what is causing the odors, most of the time the source is obvious. For example, sitting on the sofa after being away from it for the day can activate an assault of foul smells on your nasal passages. The sofa is frequently a happening spot in the home where the occupants lounge to read, watch tv, visit with another, and even sleep. Whether you permit it or not, the pets will also take advantage of the comfort the sofa offers. As a result, sweat, food and beverage spills, vomit, pet accidents, and so on will eventually accumulate enough to produce unwelcome odors. Today we at Go Green Carpet Cleaning & Restoration would like to share how you can treat your sofa and remove the odors coming off of it.

A lot of the reasons for the odors are due to protein-based substances such as sweat, pet accidents, vomit, and other such bodily fluids coming from you or your pets. To remove any existing stains and the attached odors, you need an enzyme upholstery cleaner. Be sure to follow the directions on the label if this applies. To treat additional odors and spots/stains from your sofa, follow the steps below.

2) Enzyme Cleaner. If the odors are originating from pet accidents, sweat or other protein-based stains, use your upholstery cleaner with enzymes according to the instructions on the label.
3) Odor /Stain Removal. In a bucket or bowl, combine 2 cups lukewarm water and 2 cups distilled white vinegar, slowly stir in 4 tablespoons of baking soda, ensuring it is well dissolved.
