Removing Skunk Odors

During the winter months, many Annapolis residents will find that local wildlife is constantly attempting to enter their home for warmth. While some creatures are more harmful than others, you never want to keep wildlife in your home. As soon as you find evidence of wildlife in your Annapolis home, it is important to call the professionals at Mid Atlantic Wildlife Control immediately. However, with some animals such as the skunk, the damage can already occur to your home before our professionals can arrive. If you find that your Annapolis home has fallen victim to skunk odors, consider these methods to remove the skunk odors from your home.

Skunk Odors in your Home

  1. Fans- As soon as you notice skunk odors in your Annapolis home, turn on your fans. Preventing air movement within your home will only allow the skunk odors to be absorbed within your fabric and carpet fibers, making them more difficult to remove.
  2. Filters- Removing and replacing the air filters within your HVAC system will help to eliminate the skunk odors from your home. If these filters remain the same, they could continuously spread the skunk odors throughout your home every time your system kicks on. Replacing the filters will also help best before you attempt to clean the rest of your home, since it is eliminating a major source of the contaminants.
  3. Shampoo- Use a carpet cleaning shampoo to help eliminate the skunk odors trapped within your carpet fibers. You can also use a steam cleaner to clean your carpets as well.
  4. Windows- Simply opening a few windows within your Annapolis home can help circulate fresh air and help eliminate the skunk odors.
