2019 is almost half over, and we decided it’s time for a good list.  We are in the business of helping people make their homes smell better. Yes, that is what the Zephyr Fresh whole home scent machine is all about. We use pure, natural and amazing-smelling essential oils to create a consistent and lovely clean scent throughout every room in your home. Best of all, it works with very little effort from you.

If you would like to know more about how the Zephyr Fresh system works, feel free to browse our website. In the meantime, we thought it might be interesting to research the most offensive household odors we set out to destroy every day.

Our research was nonscientific, to say the least. But it’s important that you put off the important task you were about to do and read our important list:

1. Rotting Garbage

It’s a classic for a reason, folks.  We all have that little garbage can in the kitchen.You may have yours stuffed under the kitchen sink while someone else has it hidden away in the pantry. But hiding the garbage can behind a door doesn’t stop the smell of rotting garbage from permeating the entire kitchen. If it is strong enough, you might smell it elsewhere in the home. This is a situation that calls for a through garbage can cleaning and a central air diffuser full of your favorite essential oil.

2. Cat Litter

Few things turn the nose quite like cat litter. With our apologies to cat lovers everywhere, it is awfully hard to mask the odors left behind by Mister Whiskers. The biggest problem with cat litter is that you can still smell it even after it has been changed. Once a house has been saturated with cat litter smells, it is really hard to get rid of them.

3. Bad Cooking

Not every person standing in the kitchen with an apron and oven mitt belongs there. Let’s face it, just because you saw it on MasterChef Junior doesn’t mean you can make it work. We all know it’s true because we have smelled what happened when you tried to make the sushi you saw on Pinterest. From foul fish odors to the unmistakable scent of apple pie turned charcoal, bad cooking can really make for an interesting olfactory impression.

4. Wet Dog

They’re all good boys until they run in the sprinkler. The interesting thing about this odor is that you do not even have to own a dog to experience it. Just go stand in the rain for a few minutes and then come back in and sit down on the couch. It won’t be long before you start smelling like a wet dog too. The minute your family comes in they will be begging for the Zephyr Fresh whole home scent machine.

5. Musty Dampness

The first four offensive odors tend to be easily identified and localized. This fifth odor is an entirely different ballgame. If your house smells of musty dampness, you might have something serious going on. Musty, damp odors tend to be a sign of high levels of moisture in the home. This can be caused by a variety of things including a leaky roof or a bad foundation. This is something that needs to be checked out by a professional.

We created the Zephyr Fresh central air diffuser to help fight nasty odors. Our system permeates your entire home with a lovely scent using essential oils diffused through your home’s heating and air conditioning system. If any of the nasty odors described in this article apply to your home, it might be time to do something about it.

Call a professional if your home smells musty and damp. For everything else, get rid of the source of the smell first. Then follow up by freshening the air with your favorite essential oil.
