Eliminate Swampy Summer Odor in Your Home



hampers, blinds

For the most fortunate among us, summer is a time when the house gets aired out with the windows and doors open to a balmy breeze, but for some the whole thing goes sideways and it ends up smelling a little … swampy.

A little funky. Musty. Ripe. And so forth.

And, that’s no good. So, first you identify the source of the funk and then you eliminate it.

Sequester Your Sports Gear

Summer is sports time, and sports time means sour sports gear – everywhere. Odors can get pretty loud when stinky socks, sweat-soaked shirts and fetid footwear start to pile up, but there are ways to fight the foulness.

Make a hamper available in the garage, mud room or on the deck for grimy gear to keep the smell from ever entering the house.

Trim Down Your Textiles

Smells accumulate in fabrics, carpets and rugs, and the less fabric you have the fewer places the funk can hide. And, summer is the perfect time to refresh your look.

Your carpet is probably there to stay if you have it, but you can always update your look with fewer upholstered items and blinds instead of curtains. Follow this by laundering your textile accents (carpet, pillows, throws and the like) and you should notice a fresher scent in the air.

Make Some AC Advancements

It should come as no surprise that your AC can also be the source of a skunky summer smell thanks to mold, mildew and old filters.

To get that sweet scent of canned air, replace your filter, clean out your drip pan (and add a splash of bleach) and then wait a few days. If a smell persists, call in a local pro from Porch.com to clean the mold from your unit and then enjoy a much fresher summer day.  

These “Candyfloss” roller shades from Chicology come in three color options and look great with or without additional window decor.

This indoor/outdoor hamper by Pangaea Home and Garden is crafted in natural cotton and recycled powder-coated iron for maximum durability.
