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 FRIDGE IT, originally made to eliminate very tough refrigerator and unwanted household odors, is powerful for other difficult household odors including dead mouse odors.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.

Regular Charcoal vs. Activated Charcoal as an odor eliminator

Mark Twain

Mark Twain

Why use activated charcoal?  Our readers and customers ask “does regular charcoal work as an odor eliminator?”   I’d like to share some additional information on this topic of Activated Carbon or Activated Charcoal and explain why this material is such an effective odor eliminator for a wide range of odors including cigarette smoke, moisture odor, food, pet, footwear and so many other musty household odors.

For even more detailed information about how activated charcoal works, link here activated charcoal –  another blog entry where I talk about the difference between charcoal and activated charcoal (used interchangable with activated carbon).     We hope that it helps our readers understand the powerful difference and safety issues between ordinary charcoal used for grilling and specialized activated charcoal that is manufactured as an extemely effective fragrance free odor eliminator.  Keep your charcoal briquettes for grilling and use activated charcoal for eliminating odors.  Did you know that activated charcoal is even more effective in eliminating refrigerator and freezer odor than baking soda.

So, why the photo of Mark Twain above?   Here is where Mark Twain comes in to explain the difference between charcoal and activated charcoal.
“The difference between the “right” word and the “almost right” word is the difference between “lightning” and “lightning bug”  
– Mark Twain

In other words,  when it comes to eliminating odors,  make sure you look for the important word “activated”.  You’ll find this term “activated” in all Innofresh and FRIDGE IT odor absorbers to describe our “VAT” technology – Ventilated activated charcoal.  It’s what makes the difference.    For safer and more effective activated charcoal odor eliminators,  look for the original FRIDGE IT  and Innofresh brands.  Visit our web site to learn more about our products and also for fast and easy on line shopping  www.innofresh.com

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.

Activated Charcoal Filters – Natural, fragrance free air freshener for cars, trucks and R.V.’s

I should first explain what Las Vegas has to do with this blog on how to eliminate smoke, pet and food odors in your car.  I received a photo with a note from a reader.  As the note read…. “On a recent trip to Las Vegas, I took advantage of the very convenient Las Vegas taxi service.   It wasn’t my first trip, so I expected perhaps a lingering odor coming from the last passengers cigarette smoke or some combination of spilled beer and I don’t know what….”   “Or, even worse, a combination of these odors with an overpowering scented air freshener – for a delivery of fruity smoke and beer smell!”

“To my surprise and delight, when I got in the back seat and settled in, there was no bad smells, no indication of previous smokers or lingering odor from last nights late night party and no scented air freshener hanging from the rear view mirror’.   Instead there it was – a Fridge IT.     ” The cab driver had two in the car.  This one in the back and another up front.”   Wow, what are the chances, I say.    Great story and I wanted to share it.     This cabby discovered a better way to eliminate odors – with unscented, 100% fragrance free FRIDGE IT.

Many of our readers in fact do use FRIDGE IT for inside the car and it works great.   We also developed an activated charcoal odor eliminator just for this use as well. It’s called Innofresh AUTO odor eliminator. You get the power of activated charcoal that traps and neutralizes odors, but also the convenient size and built in clip on feature on the back.    Either way, you won’t go wrong.   Both products utilize our VAC technology – a porous ventilated activated carbon filter that absorbs even the toughest odors that you might even find in taxi’s.    (Hey, nothing against taxi’s, but some of these could use a bit more freshening with fragrance free activated charcoal).

Now, you can find Innofresh AUTO odor eliminators conveniently on line at http://www.innofresh.com  or just click on the link directly to Innofresh AUTO.

Not convinced, here’s another review  from a VERY satisfied customer.

“Thank you for a wonderful product.  Prior to ordering your product, I tried placing charcoal, coffee grinds, white vinegar (at separate times) and the smell of cigarette smoke was not subsiding or leaving my car.  I went to the extent of even having the car detailed and the smell got worse because the chemicals they use.   Nothing was working. …..Your product did it. I placed it inside my car and in the trunk and after 2 days the smell started subsiding until now, is all gone.   So, thank you for a wonderful product”
