How to Remove Pet Odors from Your Home

Pet Odors

Pets bring us so much joy, companionship and love! Unfortunately, they can also carry unwanted scents that are hard to get rid of. We at Texas Cleaning Services know how important it is to keep a home fresh and free from pet odors and scent. Your Pet Home Help has shared some simple tips to help you follow to ensure your home is not stinking from the pet odors.

1. Regular Cleaning is Key

First step is to cleanse Your Environment The first key to a fresh-smelling home is cleaning regularly. Pet hair, dander, and dirt can be easily removed by vacuuming carpets, rugs, and furniture often. Most dogs and cats spend a lot of time in the family room, you should focus on this area. We recommend you vacuum so that you do not miss the dust fill in the back corner of the cabinet and when you do, use a HEPA filtered vacuum to help pick up those fine particles and allergens that are also hiding.

2. Wash Pet Bedding and Toys

The bedding and toys of your pets may collect offensive smells, so it is important to clean them from time to time. Killing bacteria and removing odors Mild detergent hot water For strong odor, add a cup of white vinegar to the wash cycle. Everything should be completely dry before storing to prevent mold or mildew.

3. Address Accidents Immediately

Accidents are a part of life, but quickly dealing with them can keep lingering odors away from your car. Soak up as much of the mess as you can with paper towels or an absorbent cloth. Next, the enzymatic cleaner that you are using for pet stains, clean that area. These cleaners use natural enzymes to break down the proteins found in the urine, feces, and vomit, completely removing the odor inside your house.

4. Use Baking Soda

Baking soda to Deodorize Your Home Lightly sprinkle baking soda on carpets, rugs, and upholstered furniture and let sit for at least 15 minutes before vacuuming. In the case of very strong odors, just leave the baking soda overnight. You can also put bowls of baking soda in rooms with strong smells to soak up the smell.

5. Air Purifiers and Ventilation

Correct Ventilation equals Good Smell Home Every now and then, it is nice to open windows and doors to replenish fresh air and move it around so that this fresh air can be common throughout the house. Air Purifiers with Activated Carbon Filters: Air purifiers with air filters containing activated charcoal can eliminate pet odors and improve indoor air quality.

6. Deodorize Carpets and Upholstery

Carpets that stink like a thousand dog butts. They are products designed to specifically counteract pet odors. Use as directed by the manufacturer, and always test on a small unseen area first to make sure it works on your surfaces.

7. Clean Pet Areas Frequently

Clean litter boxes, or cages and pet feeding areas regularly to keep odors at bay. Scoop the litter box every day and change the litter at least once a week. Regularly clean pet bowls and feeding mats to wash away the food, and bacteria.

8. Groom Your Pet

Grooming your pet regularly will also help reduce pet smells. Give your pet a bath when they are dirty and brush your pet in the same way you would brush your hair regularly to remove dander and loose fur. Bathing It Your pet might create a terrible stench around your house, most especially if it scents skunk or smelly roadkill.
