Getting Rid of Pet Odor before the Holidays
One of the biggest reasons why people dread the holidays is because they usually have to clean their homes because they’re expecting company. Is this happening to you this holiday? Are you looking for a way to get all of the pet odor out of your home before your guests arrive? If you have dogs – or really, any pets – chances are your house has taken a little beating once or twice whether it be in the form of urine on your carpet or scratch marks on your upholstered furniture – but we still love them anyways, right?
There are a couple different things you could do when it comes to lifting the pet odors from your carpets. Most of the products you buy to clean your carpets won’t work in removing the odor completely because it has to be removed from each layer that it’s affected. These cleaners typically work to hide the stain and not remove the smell.
If you leave the mess for too long, the concrete below your flooring could begin to absorb the odor. Remember this because it’s extremely important to tend to each mess before it begins to soak into the carpet!
Professionals, like us, will use a urine neutralizer to remove the urine from each layer of the flooring. In severe cases, sometimes the best thing to do is to pull up your carpet and remove the pad beneath it. Most of the time, your carpet can bounce back with a little cleaning – pads, however, are too porous to be able to remove all of the urine in these severe cases. The good news though, if these needs to be done, is that you can then get your concrete sealed prior to re-installing the carpet which will definitely eliminate any past odors.
For the times that you are not in a rush to get your home looking fresh for company, consider calling professionals out throughout the year to maintain your home for you. It takes a load off of your shoulders, plus you know the job is getting done efficiently and professionally! What’s wrong with that?
