Why do Vacumn Cleaners stink when you turn them on?

I clean houses and all those Vacumn Cleaners have a terrible odor to them! The smell will just about knock you down!!! Is there something you can do to make them smell better?

There is probably a clog somewhere in the vacuum. The accumulation will stink. Also, vacuuming over any wet carpet can lead to moisture being trapped in your vac; this may allow mold to grow.

This website has some good tips. They recommend putting an environmentally-friendly specialty product down on the carpet before you vacuum.

Apparently there are odor neutralizing tablets you can add to your vacuum bag as well.
