To be a landlord, you most likely know how important it really is to have reliable and stable renters. To prevent having the wrong renters in your house, you have to do plenty of upfront investigation and paperwork prior to signing a lease agreement together and that agreement should be FOLLOW.

If musty odors are coming from the damp places like the basement or crawl spaces, place several bags of crushed volcanic rocks at different levels within the area. Be sure to check for spots of mold that might be contributing to the musty odor. Use extreme caution if extensive mold is found, as it could be quite toxic.

Here is one easy technique to get rid of odor-
Soak a cotton ball in clove oil, lemon extract, peppermint or vanilla extract; place it in a plastic bag or container with holes, and place in the smelly room,odor will be gone after some time.

Today am here to ask something which is that My house is quite small, specifically my living/ entry area. I also donot have any windows that I leave open. I have double glass doors in my bedroom which I open only to hang out the clothes, and I have a small window in my kitchen which is fitted with a fine net mesh on the outside. I donot leave this open either. No windows in living area also?????

Cigarette smoke:  Wash walls with Un-Smoke Systems Tabac Attack  Hire a professional carpet cleaning company like MonsterClean to clean the carpets, then  rent a commercial grade high capacity OZONE generator to finish off the smoke odor.

Clean the air vents.  It may be that the dog smell is in the vents and it is circulated through the house every time the furnace/ AC runs.  Wash doors and door frames.  Clean or replace any window coverings.  And wash the exterior of base cabinets in the kitchen.

Hi, i skimmed on this discussion and found myself 'relate' on your prob. But, we do not have a house for rent, but, I was once rented a room close to work since I lived afar. And YES, though the room when i moved seems to be clean, it smells something, not as strong as (ohhh, those bad smell) but smells. I end up buying cleaning the room again with detergents and also opened freshener 24/7. Calling a carpet cleaning company to steam clean the carpets. After that, room is cozy clean! I hope I shared something valuable. Love lots.

I just wanna share our site,

To the OP.
You've been given good advice about removing orders from your rental home.
So now, why not stop this from happening to you again?

My suggestion? Once you have 3 different potential tenants for your rental home, go visit all 3 of their homes first to see how they live... this way you get an idea of what to expect for your rental home. If a tenant has nothing to hide, they will not mind letting you come see their current living situation

Good Luck,
Missy

My advice - tell the carpet cleaners to use vinegar.

I wouldn't want a future landlord going into my house to see how I live - the thought of that is just uncomfortable. Tenant screening is what this is for, not intrusions into my existing personal life.
