Need Help Removing Pet Odors?
Pets are beloved members of our families, but you’ll never get them to clean up after themselves. Squeaky toys can be picked up and put away, but dealing with urine and other accidents is not nearly as easy. Besides, the biggest problem is not cleaning up the messes. It’s ridding your home of the lingering smells.
Store-bought products and common home remedies like baking soda and vinegar will help neutralize and mask the smell of cat or dog urine, and your carpets and upholstery may smell fine when you open up the windows. All it takes, however, is one hot, humid day, and you’ll find the smell is back stronger than ever. The problem with any of these products is that they tend to only treat the top surface of the soiled area. Unfortunately, the uric acid in cat urine can sink not only into your carpet, but into the backing, the padding below it and the flooring and sub-flooring below that.
