It’s no secret that pets bring joy and companionship to our lives. However, it’s also no secret that they can leave us with some rather stinky problems. From urine to fecal matter, to eliminate perky pet odors, one needs patience and a gut for it. However, with the right tips and tricks, you can say goodbye to pet odors for good. Here at Bio-One, we’ve dealt with plenty of pet odors throughout the years.
That’s why we’ve compiled some of our best tips for effective odor removal. Read on to learn about the top ways to eliminate pesky pet odors from your home.
One of the most important steps to eliminating pet odors is to clean up messes immediately. The longer urine or fecal matter sits, the more difficult it is to remove. Plus, if not cleaned up properly, it can seep into carpets, upholstery, and even walls. When cleaning up a mess, be sure to use an enzymatic cleaner specifically designed for pet odors. These cleaners target and break down the proteins in pet urine and fecal matter, effectively eliminating odors.
Additionally, be sure to blot the affected area rather than scrubbing it, as scrubbing can push the mess deeper into the surface!
Baking soda is a natural odor absorber and can be a great addition to your pet's odor-removal routine. Simply sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda over the affected area and let it sit for several hours, or even overnight. Then, vacuum up the baking soda and dispose of it. You can also sprinkle baking soda at the bottom of your pet’s litter box to help absorb any odors.
Your pet’s accessories can also contribute to pet odors in your home. Be sure to clean your pet’s toys, bedding, and bowls regularly. For fabric items, wash them in hot water with a detergent specifically designed for pet odors. For hard items like bowls and toys, wash them with warm, soapy water and let them air dry.
Good ventilation is key to keeping your home smelling fresh and clean. Open up windows and doors to let fresh air circulate throughout your home. You can also invest in air purifiers to help eliminate pet odors and other pollutants in the air.
Pet odors can be a frustrating aspect of pet ownership, but with the right tips and tricks, they don’t have to be. Remember to clean up messes immediately, use baking soda, clean your pet’s accessories, keep your home ventilated, and, if you’ve tried all of the above and are still struggling with pet odors, it may be time to consider professional help.
