We LOVE our pets - but does that mean we have to love their smells...

JAE often gets called out to rid spaces from smelling like our beloved companions, pets. We carry out a thorough process to remove any stenches that are embedded in upholstery, carpets, curtains and more. If you need some quick tips to minimise any pet odours in your home day-to-day, start with our top 3 tips.

1. Ventilate your space

Opening your windows and doors frequently to refresh and clean the air in your home helps significantly with minimising pet odours (and others) in your home. Without fresh air circulating around, the unwanted scents will start to saturate into your carpets and soft furnishings. You should also ensure your curtains and blinds are open during the day because the ultraviolet light from the sun is a natural disinfectant, which will help to reduce the unwanted smells inside of your home.

2. Vacuum

Your pets can leave traces of their smell around the house, whether it be in the form of fur, dirt from their feet, or worse (you know what we mean). One way to get rid of these is simple, vacuum regularly and make use of the extensions for upholstery. It is a good idea to pay extra attention to where your pets are most of the time (e.g. their bed), or where their dirt/fur may settle (e.g. under couches). This will stop the build-up of traces and the smells will not linger.

3. Wash your pets

There are countless products available to refresh your pets or their spaces. In between thorough washes, you can use dry shampoo to refresh your dog’s coat. Odour minimising or disinfectant sprays can be used on your animals’ beds, litters, or cages to shield the smells from spreading or lingering. Your pets will feel better for being clean and cuddly and your house will benefit from the banished smells.

These tips can be used day-to-day to minimise pet odour in your home, but if you are in need of something more thorough, ­contact us today for odour treatments that we can tailor to your needs.
