If you have a pet that lives inside your home, you have more than likely cleaned up more than your share of messes created by that pet. The problem with pet accidents is that they can be difficult to remove and carry with them a foul odor. As much as we love these furry family members, when they are leaving behind messes, especially stinky ones, it can be frustrating. Many homeowners will turn to DIY methods to clean up after their pets. If you are getting ready to clean up after a pet, it is important that you are using the proper tools to do so. Heart of Texas Chem-Dry is here to talk about what you shouldn’t use to clean up after your pet.
Avoid These Ineffective Ways to Remove Pet Urine & Feces from Carpet
It can be tempting to attempt to clean up pet messes on your own. Of course there are several different advertisements that can claim to be the fix all to your problem. Here are some things that you should avoid though, when it comes to cleaning up after pets:
– Store-Bought Stain Removers: If you go to your local grocery store, you will more than likely see aisles of supposed stain removers for your carpet. It might seem like these work at first, but they often leave a sticky film that will simply attract more dirt to the stain rather than remove it. Most of the time, these store bought stain removers are waste of money.
– Perfumed Deodorizers: Like mentioned above, oftentimes pet stains are accompanied by strong, foul odors. It is only natural to want to get rid of these owners in your house. At first glance perfumed deodorizers might take away the smell that’s left behind by your pets, but in the end those deodorizers will fade away and the odor will come right back. Perfumed deodorizers oftentimes just mask foul odors left behind by your pets rather than removing them. Also, these deodorizers don’t actually make your house smell any fresher.
– Dog Repellent Sprays: It is natural for dogs to have accidents in the same spot over and over again in your house. This can leave homeowners looking for ways to deter their pet from having accidents in these spots. There are many different DIY repellent sprays out there that are supposedly there to help you encourage your dog to stop peeing in the same spot. However, this usually doesn’t work as your dog will just find a new place do you have an accident.
