The reason why a house might smell like dirt could be because it needs to be aired and cleaned. Open up the windows and doors to allow fresh air to circulate as you clean. Ensure that garbage has been disposed of properly and that bins have tight fitting lids. Pick up dirty laundry off the floor and wash them. Check behind furniture and appliances for rotten food, spillages and vermin.
