How do i make my room smell better?

My brother moved out and I recently moved into my brothers room and it has a very bad, disgusting odor. The walls are very filthy and very grungy and we have carpet. Is there any tips on how to get the room to smell better? I tried to clean the walls with fabolouso and I vaccume here and there but it seems to be ineffective the smell is still there and the walls are still dirty(not as dirty). What products do you reccomend that I use? I don't want to use air fresheners all of the time because the freshness would only be short lived and would be a waste of money. Please help lol, I can't live with this putrid smell any longer.

    It is all about the carpet. You can rent a machine but better yet to call a carpet cleaning company. Bite the bullet. They will get it clean--or tell you to get a new carpet. Other than that, don't forget the ceilings & closets. In your case, as dirty as it is, you should definitely consider getting a carpet and laying it yourself. You get to tear out that old crap and get at the dust underneath it. You will have the air as fresh as Starbucks.

    Mr. Clean Magic Erasers for the walls. The carpet will probably need to be shampooed or professionally cleaned. Check all the corners, under the bed, and in the closet for anything left behind.

    Try spraying the carpet with Febreze. Either that or rent a carpet steam cleaner.

    Well then, you'll have to clean them again. I recommend Spick n' Span or TSP (used to clean walls prior to painting - good stuff!) The carpets must be shampooed or torn up and tossed out. You can't shampoo "here and there" - move furniture out of the way and do a proper job.
