The Most Common Causes of Carpet Odor:

Did you know your carpeting is the largest filter in your home?  If you’re smelling an unpleasant odor when inside it’s likely coming from the carpeting. There are many things that can cause carpets and area rugs to smell and off-gas and there is something you can do about it.


Pet Urine

If you own pets you probably know that accidents happen. Pet urine is one of the hardest odors to get out of carpet because of its propensity to turn to bacteria deep in your padding. Even if you are diligent about immediately cleaning up after your pet, odor causing chemicals in urine may still remain in the carpet. If accidents go undetected, the urine can make its way into the carpet padding, leading to a more difficult problem to resolve.

Mildew and Mold

Another very difficult carpet odor to get rid of is mildew. Mildew develops on carpet when water stains or floods the carpeted area. Mildewed carpet smells sour, much like laundry that was left in the washer too long. To get the smell of mildew out of carpet, you will need a heavy-duty cleaning and drying service. With the appropriate amount of high-heat steam cleaning coupled with anti-bacterial treatments, Tru-Clean can remove this odor leaving you with fresh-clean carpeting.


Smoking indoors where there are carpeted areas will almost surely cause carpet to stink. Cigarette smoke also seeps into draperies, walls, and furniture and can be difficult to remove. There are many do-it-yourself techniques online that claim to rid the carpet of cigarette smoke odor; however, these methods simply do not work. Tru-Clean has an arsenal of products designed to eliminate smoke, tar and nicotine from your carpets and upholstery effectively and guaranteed!


Spills on carpeting happen and often won’t cause any residual smells. In some cases, accidental spills of liquids like milk, wine, beer, and motor oil can be pesky to remove and will off-gas. If initial attempts to clean spills prove to be ineffective, the carpets may need a good steam cleaning and enzyme treatment.

Steam cleaning will emulsify and lift the liquid out of the carpet while enzymes will digest to odorous bacteria and get rid of the smell. As with other odor causing liquids, if the carpet padding has been saturated, the smell may more difficult to remove.
