How To Get Rid Of Embarrassing Pet Odors From Your Home
In most cases, one sniff is all it takes to know if a home has a pet. This is particularly true if it’s a dog, cat, or a pocket pet as these creatures typically mark their territories by marking them with their scent.
Fortunately, it’s not impossible to remove pet odor from your home. Here are a few of the most effective ones:
Clean your floors and furniture thoroughly.
Scents and odors usually cling to your floors and furniture so cleaning them would be a great way to get rid of your home’s bad smell. Vacuum, sweep, mop, steam clean, and wipe down your surfaces thoroughly using effective cleaning and deodorizing agents. Carpets can be tricky, but you can always have them deep cleaned by professionals if you can remove their smell.
If done regularly, this can already be enough to get rid and prevent pet odors from lingering in your home.
Soak up and destroy surface odors.
If the first tip didn’t really get to remove the pet odors in your home, don’t lose hope. Dried up pee and other odor-causing “accidents” in the house can still be remedied by soaking them up. One good way to do so is by sprinkling baking powder into the affected areas. You can also use commercial odor absorbing products should you wish to.
Wiping down your surfaces with cleaning deodorizing liquids like vinegar and other cleaning solutions is another way to get rid of smells.

Wash all of the linen that your pet comes in contact with.
Thoroughly washing all of the rugs, cushions, pet beds, and other covers can also help remove and freshen up the smell of your home.
Locate the spots where your pet could have hidden a mess or accident.
If your pet likes to frequent hard to reach areas that you haven’t been able to clean thoroughly, it’s very important to clean them now. There’s a good chance that this is where the foul odors are coming from.
Install an ozone machine.
Odor machines help purify the air in your home so they can also be very helpful.
