Being in the real estate business for over 18 years, I thought this would be a great topic to write about. The dreaded pet odors in a home. No matter how well trained a pet, there are times when they may not have total control over itself resulting in an accident. While the accident can be easily cleaned up, sometimes the smell of urine remains in the carpet or flooring. Here are the four best pet odor removal options to help homeowners.
Get a good bacterial digester from your local janitorial supply store. Once sprayed on the flooring, the enzyme starts to eat at the bacteria and you do not have to rinse. The use of bleach is great on concrete or tile. Spray on and rinse but it is not advisable to leave on too long. Boric acid is another great cleaner. Make a paste, coat on area that your pet has soiled, allow to stand for a few minutes and then use a scrub brush to clean and rinse. Lastly the old fashion remedy of cider vinegar. Vinegar is a great neutralizer and bactericide. It can be used in concentrated from, however it is best used mixed with water.
While it may seem like a tough job to eliminate pet odors, it can be done. So enjoy your pets and happy house selling!
