Does the inside of your home have an odor that just won’t go away no matter what you do? If you’ve cleaned and vacuumed but you just can’t get rid of the smell, here are a few ideas and how you can correct it.

Clean all of your drapes and blinds, because they’re notorious for harboring smells. Clean the walls. In fact you may have to repaint them because latex paint is porous and can absorb odors. If you’ve painted and the odor still persists, look into having your home thermo-fogged.

This process uses thermo-fog deodorizing smoke to penetrate through latex paint, cabinets, and even your heat and air conditioning system to permanently eliminate odors from all kinds of sources including food, tobacco, mold, and mildew.
