A Pet Parent’s Guide to Pet Odor Removal at Home: 3 Easy Steps
- September 12, 2017
Did you know that almost half of all households in the United States have a pet? If you’re one of the many people who has chosen to bring a pet into your home, you know that pet ownership is one of life’s greatest joys. Whether you have a dog who always greets you excitedly or a cat who curls up next to you at night, having a pet brings countless happy memories for pet owners. But what about when you start to notice that dreaded pet odor in your home? Sometimes it’s from accidents during housebreaking, but sometimes it’s simply a lingering odor that just comes along with owning pets. Either way, having a pet odor in your home can be gross and embarrassing. So, what can you do about it? Read on to learn three simple ways you can remove pet odor from your home — starting today.
1.Thoroughly clean all surfaces. As your pet walks around the house, he can easily leave a stinky trail. Just by being an animal, he can leave behind fur, dander, small amounts of urine, traces of feces, bits of mud or more. That’s why it’s important to regularly vacuum and clean your entire house. Most of your pet’s leave-behinds end up on the floors, so start by vacuuming all carpets and mopping all hardwood floors. Next, tackle the furniture. Get a great furniture cleaner to use on both couches and tables. Finally, wash all the bed sheets. In addition, think about the places your pet spends most of his time — and don’t forget to clean those spots.
2.Tackle all pet stains. Even after a thorough cleaning, you might have some deep-rooted pet stains in your carpets or elsewhere. It’s a good thing that today’s cleansers can really get to the root of the stains. Fizzion pet stain and odor remover products are supercharged with CO2, meaning that they can out-clean other brands while using 80% fewer active ingredients. Another perk of Fizzion pet stain remover products: They’re all completely non-toxic, eco-friendly and fully “green” — because who wants to expose pets to anything less than the safest quality? The CO2 found in all Fizzion products naturally breaks down odor-causing bacteria, eliminating it forever (not just a few days). Fizzion offers a full line of pet stain and odor remover products that clean stains on everything from carpet to fabric to upholstery. So, no matter if you need to remove your pet’s urine, feces, vomit or blood stains, Fizzion has a pet odor eliminator that’ll work wonders.
3.Keep your pet clean. Once you’ve cleaned all surfaces in your home and gotten all pet stains out, there’s only one thing left to do: Wash your pet! His dirty fur, untrimmed nails or bad breath can leave your house smelling less than ideal. Start by giving your pet a refreshing bath to clean all of his body parts. Next, brush your pet to remove all excess fur. Then, clip his nails — but be sure not to clip too much! (If you need help, take your pet to your veterinarian for a routine nail trim.) Finally, brush his teeth to give him clean teeth and fresh breath. You might be surprised about how much regular grooming can dramatically improve the smell in your house.
Are you ready to start removing pet odors from your home? Just by following these three simple steps, you’re sure to see remarkable improvements in no time. Your family, guests and pet will thank you!
