Selling Highlands Real Estate, Odor Control
Odor control is necessary when selling Highlands real estate. Every detail counts when people are walking through your home with an eye on buying it. Look beyond the obvious aesthetics and get into the details when preparing your Highlands NC home for sale and you won’t be disappointed. You will see that preparation pays off when the offers start rolling in.
Locating smells in a home may be easy, getting rid of them can be tricky. The hardest odor to remove might be cigarette smoke, especially in a home where years of indoor smoking has occurred. In this instance you may need to hire a professional because simply opening the windows won’t do the trick. Smoke gets into the carpet, the walls, the curtains and the furniture.
Other smells could be those associated with pets, a musty basement, or an area where you keep garbage. While some odors will go away with a simple cleaning, others will involve a little work. You may be surprised to learn that cutting an onion in half and placing it in a shallow bowl can get rid of odors. This completely does the trick in a smelly teen’s room or a musty basement and won’t leave the room smelling like an onion.
