That Time Of The Year – How To Eliminate Dead Mouse and Rat Odors Behind Walls and Vents – Secret of Activated Charcoal

 It is that time of the year and a change in weather.  The faint scratching that you heard in the walls have gone quiet.  Instead, it has been replaced with the rather pungent, very “stinky” odor of decomposing rodents – mice or rats.   The amazing property of activated charcoal is in it’s ability to absorb (actually adsorb) a huge volume of odor in it’s millions of microscopic pores.  That’s why it’s often the preferred solution for eliminating the toughest of odors without the use of fragrances that just cover up odors.  100% fragrance free and allergen free.

So now you know the secret that the experts use.  Safely, Quickly and Effectively Eliminate Dead Rodent Odor that is hidden behind a wall or in a vent – without harmful chemicals or irritating fragrances that just cover up the odor.  BEST OF ALL – NOW ON SALE at www.innofresh.com

Another common problem with rodents this time of year is well, sorry, mouse poop.  Here’s a great article from Deadspin that addresses this problem – How Do I Clean Up All This Mouse Poop? Written by Jolie Kerr – a cleaning expert  

We know from experience.  You can smell it the minute you walk into a room or open a closet where the smell is coming from.  The odor from a dead, decomposing mouse or other small rodent is enough to drive you out of the house.   Before you take a hammer to the wall or search through the vents, there is an easier solution to reducing and even eliminating the strong odor from a dead mouse behind the wall or in a vent.   Dead mice and rats hidden behind walls, cabinets, vents and closets are among our top odor inquiries.   The good news is that we have helped many readers just like you.

There is a way to SAFELY eliminate the odor with natures best odor absorbing material – Activated Charcoal.   No chemicals or irritating fragrances that just mask the odor.  There are a number of products that claim to reduce the odor, but the best answer is to actually absorb the odor with carbon or charcoal.  Getting a spray bottle of odor reducer is not going to help when you can’t get to the dead rodent.   Placing activated charcoal odor eliminators in the area where the smell is the worst is your best choice.    Our popular FRIDGE IT Cube activated charcoal odor absorber is extremely effective in tackling the strong odor from a dead mouse.

Our customers often ask – “But, I thought that FRIDGE IT was for refrigerator, freezers and trash odors?”   That is certainly some of the uses for FRIDGE IT.  However, the special ventilated activated charcoal fliter that we use for FRIDGE IT is amazing in effectively absorbing and neutralizing a broad range of odors and has the absorption capacity to handle even the toughest of odors including dead mouse odor.   FRIDGE IT contains a powerful micro carbon filter that absorbs and neutralizes odors as they pass though millions of micro-pockets and pores in the activated charcoal.  The amazing property of activated charcoal is the enormous microscopic surface area that odors (gases) actually “adsorb” to, adhering to the surface of the activated charcoal.  Just placing a few of these FRIDGE IT filters in the area that you feel the dead mouse is likely located will help tremendously in absorbing the smell that is lingering in the air.   For best results, place these odor absorbers near the baseboards and in the general area near the wall.  Depending upon the size of ther room and difficulty of the odor, we typically recommend 3-6 odor absorbing filters placed nearby. 

If you have problems with mice in your home, we recommend first trying to trap the mice in the open with a mouse trap or other device so that it doesn’t just end up eating the poison bate and then die behind the wall.  However, despite best efforts to trap them, the reality is they often end of simply dead behind a wall and the smell is pretty darn bad.  So, again, before taking a hammer to the wall, discover the amazing power of activated charcoal for absorbing odors.   Not just any charcoal, but the ventilated activated charcoal of FRIDGE IT.

How To Safely and Quickly Eliminate Dead Mouse Odor In Walls and Vents

Dead Mouse Odor

Dead Mouse Odor

Let’s face it.  Musty smells and unpleasant household odors are very common, especially this time of the year.  Not surprisingly, one of the most popular odor problems that our readers are interested in is “Dead Mouse or Rat or Rodent Odor” and how to eliminate this pungent smell.

This is why I am writing this blog on how to eliminate dead rodent odor. It’s that time of the year when little creatures come out and visit.  Unfortunately, sometimes they leave more than some crumbs or droppings inside the house.   We often hear from our readers that a mouse or rat is dead and hidden behind a wall, in a vent or in a crawl space and leaving noxious odors.    A frequently asked question is “Does Innofresh activated charcoal really work to eliminate the odor from a dead animal hidden in the wall?”

The answer is YES. Of course, our first suggestion is to try to trap the critters in the open first, by using mouse traps or other devices so that it doesn’t just eat poison bate and then die behind the wall. But, despite best efforts,  they often simply are dead behind a wall and the smell is pretty bad.    Dead mouse or other rodent odor is tricky because you often never really know where exactly the mouse is and you certainly do not want to start drilling holes in the wall, crawl space or vent.     Also,  another challenge is knowing what really is dead behind the wall.   If the problem odor is from a larger animal, I’m afraid that you really should try to have it removed.

In the case of a small mouse, using a few of our powerful, fragrance free FRIDGE IT cube odor absorbers will have positive results. FRIDGE IT, originally made to eliminate very tough refrigerator and unwanted household odors, is powerful for other difficult household odors including dead mouse odors. It’s our strongest odor absorber for the job. All you need to do is place them in the area that you feel the dead mouse is likely located.   If behind a wall, just place FRIDGE IT near the baseboard on the floor and also, up higher on a shelf or top of dresser.     If the smell is coming from in a closet, you can just place a few of the FRIDGE IT cubes in the closet to absorb the lingering odor.

FRIDGE ITcontains a powerful and effective, ventilated, activated charcoal filter that absorbs and neutralizes the toughest odors that pass through it.  The millions of micro-pockets and pores in our activated charcoal has an enormous surface area that make it so incredibly effective.    Yes, a dead mouse odor that is coming from behind a wall is particularly difficult to eliminate since the source of the odor is hidden.     However, placing our FRIDGE IT cube odor eliminator in the area will help absorb the smell that is lingering in the air.  And, no chemicals and irritating fragrances that just cover up odors.  We usually recommend placing at least three (3) of our FRIDGE IT cubes in the area for this difficult problem odor.

Survey says – Office breakroom refrigerators and trash cans are among worst smells

Breakroom Refrigerators Need FRIDGE IT

Breakroom Refrigerators Need FRIDGE IT

The office breakroom.  Now, that’s a study in human behavior.  I have to say that at least our breakroom at Innofresh has the best smelling, cleanest refrigerator and odor free trash and sink area.   Of course, when you have a great supply of FRIDGE IT activated charcoal odor eliminators always on hand, it sure helps.

How about you?  Do you have an office breakroom that can use some, ah hem, “help” ?   Write to us and include a  photo of your breakroom fridge and tell us about it.  You might just end up with a couple of free FRIDGE IT odor absorbers. Send your story and photos to customerservice@innofresh.com or leave with comment with photo on this blog.

Have you opened the refrigerator or freezer and almost passed out from the odor coming from inside?  You know that pungent smell coming from someones leftover lunch from 3 weeks ago.   Breakroom refrigerators and how to eliminate refrigerator odor is one of our top search terms as well as questions about how to get rid of bad odors from breakroom trash and sink areas.
We’ve all been there.  You reach for your lunch sandwich in the office refrigerator, only to be met with the worse smell from decomposing food.  To make matters worse, someone already took your sandwich, right!

In 2009, you may have read about the refrigerator odor problem at the AT&T building in San Jose, California.   This is a true story.  It seems that the office refrigerator was so noxious from food smells,  that when an employee took it upon herself to clean it out along with using some chemical cleaners, it sent several of her co-workers to the hospital and prompted the evacuation of 325 people from the building.    It turned out that a combination of the odor and using the wrong cleaner sent noxious fumes through the air.

Now, hopefully your office refrigerator isn’t quite that bad.    To avoid the bad smells and noxious odors coming from an over crowded and neglected refrigerator, here are a couple of steps.

Step 1.  Assign someone responsible for posting a sign on the refrigerator that says something like “Every Friday, this refrigerator will be cleaned out so if you don’t throw it out, we will”. Then, on Friday’s before closing up for the weekend, that person would be responsible for throwing out anything left in the fridge that could potentially start smelling.

Step 2.  I know this sounds like a sales pitch, but make sure you put a couple  of the FRIDGE IT ®Cubes in the fridge.  This will take care of any lingering odor in the refrigerator.  Also, place one or two units under the sink, near the trash to keep the the entire breakroom smelling fresh and clean again.   The refrigerator that smelled terrible will now be a joy to open and use.   It might even inspire employees to help keep the fridge clean.

You don’t have to take my word for it.   FRIDGE IT  “absolutely does work” as seen on NBC’s KAMR Does It Work Segment. FRIDGE IT odor absorber performed so well in eliminating refrigerator odor that they gave it their highest rating. Click on this link to see the 2 minute spot on YouTube KAMR DOES IT WORK.
FRIDGE IT has a ventilated, activated carbon filter that is amazing and is the ec0-friendly choice for even the worst odors in refrigerators and freezers.   Completely fragrance free and chemical free, the activated charcoal absorbs and eliminates the odor for good.   By eliminating odors, this also reduces cross contamination of smells in your refrigerator so your sandwich won’t taste like your co-workers french onion salad.      Tested against baking soda, activated charcoal is the clear winner for eliminating odors in refrigerators.

Not only is FRIDGE IT great for the refrigerator and freezer, but you can use the power of our advanced activated charcoal filter in so many other areas around the office and home including under sinks, near trash and garbage areas, closets, cabinets, storage, pantry, garage and even smelly dorm rooms.    FRIDGE IT works so well that it is even the fragrance free choice for dead mouse odors behind walls.     FRIDGE IT and Innofresh odor absorbers don’t mask and cover up odors – they eliminate odors for good.

This actually can work for some lesser odors but not really effective for tough refrigerator odor problems, plus it’s messy.  The carbon in the ink actually help soak up the odor.While some posts also included old fashioned baking soda and even coffee grinds, “Sarahview”, “Bettee201” and “Tayloron” posted raving reviews for FRIDGE IT fragrance free activated charcoal odor absorbers.
