How to get rid of Stinky Pet Odor

At times your beloved cat or dog really stinks up the house, but there are a few easy ways to eliminate the odor.

So here’s a guide to keep your home fresh year-around! 

  1. Wash your pet’s bed often:

If your pet has a bed they like being snuggled it, it can be a cause of that bad odor. Pet’s tend to carry saliva, dirt, hair and even pee. Keeping a cover on your pet’s bed can be really useful. You can just remove it and toss it in the washing machine for a thorough wash.

  1. Clean their items:

We tend to spoil our pet’s with toys, collars, bowls, beds and also clothes. So it is absolutely crucial to wash these items time to time. Items like their bowls can be washed with hands, but some items cannot be washed even in a washing machine. In such cases, you can use the old school method of using baking soda.

  1. Wash your pets:

While not all our fur-buddies like taking a shower, it is necessary to clean them every once in a while. Bathing them regularly helps in getting rid of the dirt that hides under your pet’s fur. In terms of our feline babies, it is believed that they groom themselves which does the trick, while that isn’t the case. Even though they clean themselves it still leaves the dirt behind. Hence it is recommended to bath your cat every 4-6 weeks. 

  1. Vacuum your house consistently:

Vacuuming regularly is the best way to keep your house’s floors clean and the air quality better. It helps in getting rid of your pet’s hair on the carpet, rugs, furniture & excessive dirt. Going over the same area multiple times through different angle helps in achieving better results.

  1. Use air fresheners regularly:

This trick will help your house smelling fresh. You can also use candles or oil diffusers in the area your pet visits the most.

  1. Invest in air purifier:

Air purifiers are designed to improve air quality by taking harmful dust & dirt from your home’s air. It is natural for pet’s odor to contain these and hence air purifier helps a lot in such situations.

  1. Mop hard floors:

Your hard floors tend to collect dust, dirt and your pet’s hair, hence mopping hard floors is crucial on a regular basis. Mopping also helps in getting rid of things bought from the outside via your pet’s paws.

  1. Open the windows:

This can easily help you get some fresh air in the house and get rid of that stinky odor.

  1. Hire a professional:

Lastly, you can hire a professional to clean your space. They can steam clean the carpets and assist you with a clean and fresh home.

Once you have gone through this checklist, your home should start smelling super fresh!
