How to Stop Pets from Stinking up your Carpet

carpetm 19 Jul 2013

Carpet Cleaning Melbourne loves pets; we just don’t love what they do to your carpet. However, just because you have pets doesn’t mean that you have to have the smell associated with them in your carpet.  So let’s talk about how to get rid of the smell, but first let’s talk about where it comes from.

The problem with the odor is not with your pets or your cleanliness, it’s the fact that every time your pets rolls or sleeps on your carpet, they get their dander, oil and hair on it.  This is what is causing the odor.

To stop pet odor in your carpets, you can use two common household elements to fight the odor: baking soda and vinegar. You may have heard about these two odor remedies and even tried them without results, but you may not have used them correctly.

It takes a bit of work, but baking soda on your carpet once a week is the best way to get pet odors out of your carpets. The way it works is that you have to sprinkle the baking soda over the carpet and let it sit overnight. In the morning, take a stiff broom and sweep the baking soda up into a dust pan, then throw it out. You have to be sure to get all of the baking soda up in order for this to work, so it will definitely take some effort.

White vinegar is used to get rid of pet urine smells and get out the stain out as well. Carpet Cleaning Melbourne recommends that you do not use ammonia to get out pet stains as this may make pets want to urinate on your carpets even more.
