Why Your Home Smells.

From fried fish to a filthy litterbox, most smells in your home are fairly easy to pinpoint. There are, however, more insidious aromas that linger and seem impossible to eliminate, no matter how many bottles of Febreeze you unleash. To keep these odors from taking over your home, first, you have to identify them.

There is Hidden Mold.

Maybe you’ve noticed a “musty” or “wet cardboard” smell in your home. Or perhaps you’ve referred to it as “old home smell.” Either way, one of the most common causes of lingering, musty smells, especially in older homes, is hidden mold, usually in the walls.
As you probably know, some types of mold can be toxic. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), most household mold problems under 10 square feet are safe enough to clean on your own and don’t need a professional, but to be safe, you should read up on the different types of mold at the EPA’s website here.
Then, the first real order of business? Figure out where that mold might be hiding. Here are some common culprits:
Leaky plumbing
Gutter issues
Poor ventilation in kitchen and bathrooms
Window frames where condensation builds up

Your Carpet and Walls Have Absorbed Years of Stink.

Carpets and paint can absorb bad smells over time: smoke, pet urine and spilled milk.
