Usually, when you think of something smelling badly of skunk, you think of your pet or an area outside of your home. But when a skunk sprays, the odor is extremely strong, and if it’s particularly strong outside of your home, the smell of skunk can quickly get inside your house too. And, if your pet gets sprayed by a skunk and then comes inside, they may leave that unpleasant odor inside long after they’ve left again.
Skunk smell is different from other unpleasant smells in your home. That’s partly because it is so strong, and so difficult to live with. Skunk smell is also different because you don’t need to find the source of the smell to eliminate the skunk smell. It doesn’t really matter how it got in, once it’s there you need to remove that skunk smell from your house! There are a few things you can do to try and get it out, but you’ll probably need to turn to a professional solution to remove all of the skunk smell.
Start by opening all of the windows that you can and getting as much fresh air as possible into the house. Turning on a few fans will help remove the skunk smell from the home and bring in even more air from outside. But because skunk smell is so strong, you’ll most likely also need to give your walls and furniture a thorough cleaning. Walls can be cleaned with a mixture of either water and bleach or water and vinegar; and furniture can be sprinkled with talcum powder, which can then be vacuumed up afterward. Fabric spray also works very well on furniture and will help to eliminate skunk smell.
Even after you’ve gone to all the trouble of cleaning your furniture and washing your walls, you may find that the skunk smell is still hanging in the air. Or, you might just not want to go to all the time and trouble of thoroughly cleaning your entire house. In these cases, a product such as our Room Shocker Quick Release (http://www.biocidesystems.com/roomshocker1.html) can quickly eliminate skunk odor from your home in as little as 24 hours.
