Carpet or rug odor which is not as overwhelming can sometimes be dealt with using baking soda. This needs to be evenly distributed over a carpet or a rug and left to settle for a few minutes. This method will allow the odors to be absorbed by the baking soda. After which you simply vacuum up the residue baking soda, and in theory
, the smell is eliminated and your rug or carpet is left smelling clean and fresh.
Carpet foam cleaners can sometimes be used to remove odor when baking soda does not work. These cleaners are sprayed in evenly and usually left to soak into the rug or carpet, however, read the instructions carefully for how long this should be left on for. Once the product has been left for a certain amount of time, the residue needs to be vacuumed off the rug or carpet, hopefully leaving an odor free carpet or rug.
Some carpet or rug odors are nothing more than dirt which has been trapped in the pile of the carpet or rug. Should this be the case, all you need to do is remove the dirt, hiring a steam cleaner which is powerful enough to loosen the dirt from the fibers and remove the odor should do the trick. Using a cleaning fluid in conjunction with the steam cleaner will work twice as good. However, if you are looking for a more natural solution, try using white vinegar in place of the cleaning fluid.
