Pests that enter your home can be a bit of a nuisance, but there is a pretty good chance that this is just the very tip of the iceberg with respect to the harm that they might do to you. Certain critters that would like nothing more than to make a home for themselves in the house that you bought can be disastrous to deal with, and none are more so than shrew rodents. The thing that makes these rodents so problematic is that they breed really quickly, so an infestation of two to three can turn into dozens before too long.
One of the worst things that would happen if you have shrew rodents running around your house is that they can give your carpet an odor that is so foul that it might cause perpetual nausea. The truth of the situation is that you can’t rely on the basic Baytown carpet cleaner methods if this is something you are going through. This is because of the fact that steam will not rid your rug of smells that are this bad, so you should use a carpet cleaning solution to up the ante.
In our opinion, the best carpet cleaning solution that you can put on your carpet to remove the terrible smell that shrew rodents left behind is a simple concoction of one part vinegar, two parts water and half a part of dish soap. The fragrance from the dish soap can mask the sour smell of vinegar as it kills odor causing microbes, and the water helps to increase the area this solution can cover.
