The Plight of Pet Odors

Water Clean Up

Water Clean Up

We love our pets dearly, but it’s definitely no secret that maintaining our homes after one, two, or three pets is challenging! We’re not just talking about “accidents,” during house training, or litter box training. We’re talking about that unmistakable, one-of-a-kind dog smell. While we’re busy falling in puppy love and cluttering our smart phones with adorable “pet photography,” our beloved pets are successfully polluting our lives with their animal odors.

Anything That Can Be Washed, Should Be Washed

The easiest place to begin is with the laundry. If your pet prefers your blankets over their own, personal, pet-sized bed, it’s probably time to give the bedding a wash. Blankets, comforters, pillows, anything that can be laundered should be put right into the washing machine!

Search for Fido’s Favorite Spot

Dogs are often repeat offenders. They find a specific spot which they prefer over other areas, and on it, they habitually “mark their territory.” If you smell pet urine around, check your pup’s spot and clean up the area.

Give it a Good Mopping!

It is always helpful to sweep, vacuum, and mop your floors to help wash out pet odors. After all, it’s safe to say that our pets visit all of these areas on the regular! Carpet is a bit tougher to clean, especially over time. Consider hiring a professional to steam clean and treat your carpets for pet stains. We have a feeling you won’t regret it!


Occasionally, your carpet, upholstery, furniture, or even pet bedding may need a thorough cleaning in order to completely eliminate pet odors from your home. Steam cleaning is proven to be a highly effective method of sanitizing and deodorizing! You can steam clean dozens of areas in your home without the use of potentially harmful (or expensive) cleaning solutions. And yes, it’s perfectly safe for our pets. So if you’re battling a stubborn stench in your home, consider calling The Steam Team to handle this project for you!
