We love our pets! They are important members of our families and bring immense joy to our lives. But we can’t deny the fact that they can be a burden to clean up after. Dogs sometimes bring dirt and mud throughout the home – it’s inevitable. And sometimes they have accidents on the carpet. We still love them, but it is frustrating to try to remove the stains and odors from our carpet and upholstery. As pet parents, however, we are resigned to the task of making sure our home stays clean and free from offensive pet odors.
Why Does It Smell So Bad Like that?
These lingering odors are caused by the bacteria that remain in your carpet long after your pet has the accident. Simple blotting and toweling of the mess will not remove the deep-down saturation. This allows the bacteria to thrive and the odor to become unbearable.
Thankfully, the process of removing the odor that comes from your pet is not that hard. You are only required to do some easy things. The following process will explain the way to remove pet odors.
- Find The Source of The Smell
This is the first thing that you should do. To do this, you should use your nose and eyes to find the stains that may cause odor. You might find that the stains are invisible so that you must use a kind of black light to illuminate them. Mark the stains after you find them so that you will easily find them again.
- Buy The Pet Odor and Stain Removal Product
After you have finished finding the source of the odor, you can think about removing them. To make it easy, you can use pet odor and stain removal product. You can find this product easily in the pet shop. You have to make sure that the product contains a biological odor eliminator in order to clean the stains perfectly. Additionally, do a quick test that proves the product will not make any discoloration to the area that you will clean.
- Remove The Stains
After you have the stain removal product in hand, you can start removing the stains that you have noticed. To do this, you can use paper towels if the stains are still fresh. If they are almost dry, you can use the stain removal product by following the directions given by the manufacturer. Additionally, you can use dry/wet vacuum when you feel that you need it.
- Wash The Pet Bedding
The last thing that you should do is to make sure that any textiles and beddings where your pet wastes his time are clean. You can wash the textiles and beddings of your pet regularly. To make it easy, you can use some baking soda and detergent. In addition, you can spray fabric refreshing spray on any textiles, carpet, and bedding of your pet that you have cleaned. This will create a fresh smell of home and space.

The amount of enzymatic cleaner you need to use will depend on strength of the odor. Also, be aware that strong odors (such as those that you can smell when you walk into a room), will take more effort to remove.
