Pet odours in the home can be a problem. Australians love their cats and dogs as if they were family members, so many end up spending as much time indoors as we do. They lounge around on the furniture, the beds and especially the carpet. After a while carpets can start smelling like a wet dog, or worse if they decide to do their business on there.
Let’s look at some handy tips to remove pet odours from the home, especially the carpets.
Keep Pets Outside
This is probably not the ideal solution for those who love having their pets around them all the time, but it is a sure fire way of making sure your carpets and furniture don’t smell like a dog or cat.
Baking soda or bi-carbonate of soda is a known odour absorber. People use it in their fridges to absorb food smells. With the carpets or the furniture, sprinkling some baking soda in the favourite spot where your pet lays can help vastly reduce an odour build up. Leave it there overnight, then vacuum up the next day. Do this regularly to keep odours to a minimum.
Pet Urine On Carpets
Once again, baking soda can do the trick. Clean up as much of the urine as possible first by dabbing the affected area with paper towel or a cloth. Once that’s done, liberally sprinkle baking soda onto the patch to both absorb the odour and help to dry the carpet out. Once dry, vacuum up the baking soda. You may need to repeat this process a few times to really get rid of the smell.
