How to get rid of smells inside your rental FAST!

Simple Tips for Keeping Your Stockton Rental Property Safe

So you’re getting ready to list your rental property yourself and arrive to do a final walk through of the property only to find that it has some “funky” smells.

There’s no denying that a smelly rental property can deter any potential renter because smells can easily lead some renters to think that there’s something wrong with the rental property.

Thankfully, you can easily get rid of those smells yourself by following these simple tips:

SOLUTION #1 – Place Dryer Sheets In Air Ducts

Did you know that one of the best things you can do to get rid of the “funky” smell in your Rental Property quickly is by placing dryer sheets in the air ducts for your rental?

Go to your favorite store and purchase regular drier sheets then place them in ducts at least 30 minutes before potential renters arrive to view your rental property.

Make sure you turn your ventilation system on because this will give the smell from the dryer sheets a chance to circulate in the air and insure that your Rental Property smells fresh and clean.

SOLUTION #2 – Use Lemon Peels In the Garbage Disposal

One great way to naturally de-odorize your kitchen garbage disposal is by placing lemon peels in the garbage disposal and then running the disposal at least 10 minutes before renters arrive.

This strategy will eliminate that funky smell from your sink and help your kitchen to smell lemon fresh.

SOLUTION #3 – Use Baking Soda and Vinegar to Clean Toilets and Sinks

Last of all, but most important, depending on the age of your Rental Property you could have toilets or sinks which are showing their age and stink.

If this is the case you should consider using a combination of baking soda and vinegar to naturally clean toilets and sinks one at a time.
