If you've scrubbed your house from top to bottom and still can't make stubborn household odors like musty basement odor or cigarette odor go away, you're not alone. Most of us have faced a stubborn household odor or two. Unfortunately, cleaning alone isn't usually enough to get rid of them.
Most of the really bad household odors are organic in nature. In other words, they are caused by living (or once living) organisms. This is true of skunk odor, mold, mildew, pet odors (including urine), fish smell, and cigarette smoke smells.
The problem with most household cleaners (including those that are supposedly designed to eliminate odors) is that they can't really get down to the root of the problem. Organic odors need to be dealt with on a molecular level if you want to really eliminate them. If your cleaning products do anything less than that, they are only covering up the odor temporarily. You will still have to deal with the smell.
Two of the odors where this is most noticeable are basement odor and cigarette smoke. If you're ever tried to eliminate smoke odor or that musty smell in the basement, you know what we're talking about. Those kinds of odors just don't seem to go away, no matter how many times you clean the affected areas. Again, the problem is that cleaning them doesn't deal with the odor on a molecular level.
Fortunately, there are products on the market that can eliminate odors on the molecular level. The most effective odor elimination products use Chlorine Dioxide, a chemical compound which naturally bonds to and reacts with the molecules of organic odor causing substances. The reaction caused releases safe and odor free chlorite ions, leaving the affected area with a neutral odor.
You'll need to look online to find odor removal products which use Chlorine Dioxide. You won't find them at department or grocery stores.
Don't let basement odor, some odor, pet odors, and other stubborn household odors get the better of you. After you've done everything you can to clean the area up and eliminate smoke odor, go the extra mile and use products that are designed to neutralize odors on the molecular level. When you do, you can eliminate the odors ate their source. You can truly eliminate smoke odor, musty basement odors, and other stubborn household odors instead of fighting the losing battle of constantly cleaning the area with cleaners that only perfume over the odor.
