“Help, I need a pet odor removal specialist in Frederick, MD.”

If you were searching for Pet Odor Removal Frederick, you are in the right place.

You love your pet, but you HATE their odor. And let’s face it, you may deal with a lot if you’re still in the potty-training phase. Unfortunately, while the accidents are temporary, the odor can become permanent if you don’t handle the clean-up correctly.

Never fear! This blog will tell you everything NOT to do and to what point you should call a pet odor cleaner.

What to Avoid with Carpet and Pet Odor

If you’re bringing a new pet into the house, it’s essential to know all the following information ahead of time. Once pet odor enters your carpet, it’s often there to stay (unless you call a pet odor cleaning company in Frederick, Maryland, of course). Thus, it’s just as important to know what NOT to do as it is to call the right people when you know you need help.

  1. Don’t panic

Oh no! Your dog or cat peed on your carpet AGAIN. If you’re like most homeowners, you want to have a lovely house. You can’t stand the thought of your pet soiling your carpet. How will you get it out?!

This is how the panic begins, and it usually ends with rough scrubbing with materials that should NEVER be used on carpet. You can ruin your carpet in seconds and make the situation drastically worse. So, whatever you do, don’t panic. Pet odor cleaners exist for a reason.

  1. Don’t use a random cleaner.

This is often involved in the cleaning stage of panic. You go to your cupboard and pull out all kinds of cleaning solutions that you think may pull out the pet odor. However, the pH value of the cleaner must be within the tolerance limits of your carpet’s fibers and colors. Otherwise, guess what? It’ll ruin it! Never use an at-home carpet cleaner unless you understand what’s in it and how it will work on your carpet.

This also extends to air fresheners and perfumes. If pet odor worsens, homeowners often attempt to cover up the smell of the excrement with a better-smelling scent. However, the organic molecules in the waste will not respond to the synthetic chemicals that air fresheners contain. You can spray all you want, but no amount of fragrance will suppress pet odor – not to mention that the alcohol in deodorizers pushes foul odors deeper into carpet fibers. This means you’ll make the smell worse by spraying it.

  1. Don’t scrub your carpet.

If you put a safe carpet cleaner on your carpet, you may expect the stain and odor to disappear immediately. Yet, stubborn pet stains and smells don’t always lift that easily. So, most people will scrub vigorously at the stain to make it disappear.

Unfortunately, if the stain has already been there for 10 minutes or longer, the enzymes will have penetrated to the padding or floor beneath your carpeting. This not only means that scrubbing won’t resolve the pet odor but that you’ll damage your carpet by continuing to scrub.

It’s better to wet and blot any area with pet stains and odors, especially if you discover the accident soon after it was left.

How to Properly Handle Pet Odor

It is possible to conquer pet odor and keep your carpets nice. Here are some tips on adequately handling pet odor in your home.

  1. Clean up accidents with the right products

Did you know that using a product with an enzymatic formula that will break down the proteins in your dog or cat’s urine can help permanently eradicate the odor? Doing this will help properly treat the smell left behind and prevent return visits to the same spot.
