One of the first things that people are likely to notice about your home is the smell. Smell can make or break a visitor’s impression about your place. This can be a problem for people who have pets. No matter how much we adore our furry friends, pet odor is hard to ignore.
If you don’t take prompt action, pet urine odor can easily spread throughout the home. When removing pet odor, it’s important to avoid these mistakes:
Using harmful cleaning products
This is the most common mistake home owners make when removing pet urine stains and odor. You are probably thinking that strong cleaning products will do the job properly. But, this isn’t true.
Many regular cleaning products contain harmful chemicals, such as ammonia. If you’re using ammonia-based cleaning detergent to get rid of your dog’s urine stains from carpets, alkaline can weaken the carpet fibers. In addition, ammonia and other chemicals are detrimental to indoor air quality and can lead to respiratory and skin issues.
Waiting too long to remove odor
If you do not address the issue immediately, pet urine stains will set into carpets. The longer you wait to clean the affected carpet. It will become more difficult to get rid of the odor and bacteria.
Along with cleaning pet stains, spray a bit of a pet odor neutralizer to eliminate the smell. However, make sure to follow the manufacturer’s directions before using it.
Using home remedies
Last but not least, do not rely on home remedies to remove pet odors. Household items, such as vinegar and baking soda offer temporary relief.
They will aggravate the problem by spreading out the contamination deeper into carpets.
In order to remove pet urine odor from the deepest layers of carpets, you need a cleaning product that is ammonia-free, effective and non-toxic. Enzymatic cleaners are great because they eliminate the compounds that create odor.
Most importantly, it is crucial to hire a professional carpet cleaning company to remove pet stains and odor effectively.
