The joy of having a pet is matched by the companionship it brings. However, they can sometimes emit unpleasant smells. The problem of removing pet odors is one that many owners have to face. Carpet cleaners our site in mosman, have devised comprehensive strategies which eliminate pet smells right at the source.

To eliminate pet odors you must first identify where they are coming from. Odors emanate in various locations – furniture, carpets or even from the air. Following the discovery of the source, the cleaning process should be thorough. Soft surfaces like upholstery or carpets often require more than a surface clean. Pet odors can penetrate deep into fibers, necessitating a deep clean. Use of enzyme cleaners can be particularly helpful as these break down and remove organic matter which causes the odor.

These surfaces also require care. They are more difficult to clean but can allow odors into the grout or cracks. An effective mop using the appropriate cleaner is followed by a rinse of clean water. This will help to get rid of any residual smells. Use of too much moisture on hardwood flooring can lead to damage.

The regular washing of pet bedding as well removable furniture covers can also help to eliminate odors. The odors can be removed by using hot water to wash these items.

It is crucial to air purification in the elimination of odors. The use of HEPA-filter air purifiers can improve the indoor air quality by capturing airborne particles. A natural remedy like baking soda will absorb odors naturally, and without any chemicals. Spreading baking soda onto carpets and upholstery and letting it set for a few days, before vacuuming, will effectively eliminate smells.

Prevention is important, as well as treatment. Regularly grooming pets will help to reduce the amount dander or hair in the home. These are the main sources of smell. Taking care of accidents quickly is essential. A pet stain that is not treated immediately can lead to an odor.
