How to Remove Pet Odor From Your Home

Jan 15, 2014 11:42:00 AM

carpet cleaning Jacksonville, FLPets make your home more comfortable and welcoming, but, unfortunately, they also have the habit of making your home stinky. Even the most conscientious of pet owners sometimes notices a foul odor, and this odor becomes markedly worse for those who have accidents from time to time. Luckily, you do not have to live with this stench forever. There are plenty of steps that you can take to remove the pet odor from your home, and First Coast Home Pros can help.

The removal of pet smells begins with proper maintenance. Make a habit of bathing your dog regularly with an unscented shampoo. Pay special attention to the areas behind his ears and between his legs, as these areas tend to accumulate pheromones, dirt, grime and other smelly substances. Keeping him clean prevents him from leaving any additional foul odors throughout the home. If you notice a strong odor coming directly from your dog even after a thorough bath, consult your veterinarian. This could be a sign of a medical condition or food allergy.
