Pets bring joy and companionship to our homes, but they can also leave behind unpleasant odours on our carpets and upholstery. These odours can be stubborn and challenging to eliminate, affecting the overall freshness of our living spaces. In this blog post, we will explore the problems caused by pet odours, along with effective measures, including professional solutions provided by ADCHEM, to remove them and restore a clean and odour-free environment.
The Problem with Pet Odours:
Pet odours, especially those caused by urine or faeces, can permeate deep into the fibres of carpets and upholstery. These odours are not only unpleasant but can also linger for an extended period if not properly addressed. Additionally, the presence of pet odours can attract pets to repeat their accidents in the same areas, exacerbating the problem.
Measures to Remove Pet Odours:
1. Immediate Action: If you spot fresh pet accidents, act quickly. Blot the affected area with paper towels to absorb as much liquid as possible. Avoid rubbing, as it can spread the odour and push it deeper into the fibres.
2. Vinegar and Baking Soda: Create a solution of equal parts white vinegar and water. Apply this mixture to the affected area and let it sit for a few minutes. Blot the area with a clean cloth or paper towel, then sprinkle baking soda over the spot. Allow the baking soda to sit overnight, then vacuum it up the next day. This method helps neutralize odours.
3. Enzymatic Cleaners: Enzymatic cleaners are specifically designed to break down the organic compounds found in pet urine and eliminate the accompanying odours. Follow the instructions on the cleaner and apply it to the affected area. Enzymatic cleaners are effective in removing odours at the source.
4. Steam Cleaning: Steam cleaning is a powerful method for deep cleaning carpets and upholstery. It uses hot water and steam to extract dirt, debris, and odours from the fibres. Consider renting a steam cleaner or hiring professional carpet cleaning services to ensure a thorough and effective cleaning process.
