Over time, furniture can be prone to absorbing the scents and liquids that it is exposed to. Your sofas might be made from fabrics, canvases, or leather; but that won’t matter to odours. In fact, 9 times out of 10 a piece of furniture will find its natural scent replaced with unwanted odours in the space of just 12 months.
In our experience, these odours can become such a staple part of a home that people overlook their presence.
The reality is that as common as these types of odours can be, especially if you have pets – they can actually take their toll on the atmosphere within your home. The smell of wet dog isn’t a nice one, nor is the scent associated with the anal leaks so many cats and dogs can be prone to. Wiping these events away can provide an immediate solution in some cases; but in others it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to rid every single scent-filled atom from where it touched your furniture.
Can these odours be removed completely?
Some people choose to mask these odours with other scents such as air fresheners and plug in sprays, but the truth is that even these options have a life expectancy. And for those of you that replace them often, you’ll still have to face one fact – and that’s that the unwanted odours will still be present underneath all of the fresh masking scent.
Fortunately it is possible to remove these unwanted odours, but not always by using household cleaners and store-bought agents.
There can be some times when an odour is absorbed so deeply into a fabric or a piece of material that it ends up becoming one with the fibres within. In these cases there’s only one way to ensure the complete eradication of the odour – and that’s to hire a professional team of cleaners.
But why might that be?
For a start, cleaning agencies like ours have access to industrial-grade features and resources that aren’t available to buy in store (in most instances). These cleaning products can help us to completely break down the particles left behind from odours and scents that were allowed to settle into furniture; before restoring a fresh, clean feel to your upholstery that will replace the unwanted one.
At the end of the day, odour is something that can be treated. You can try to open windows, light a candle, or burn incense; but unless you treat the cause at its source, it will remain an ever-present thorn in your side and one that we’d be happy to remove for you.
