Dogs are among the most popular pets for homeowners. We play with them, give them love and attention, and take care of them with pleasure. Sometimes our dogs have accidents on the carpet or upholstered furniture. Usually, you discover this surprise when you come home tired after the long, busy day at work. To get rid of the pee smell permeating your home, you take the easy route and reach for the air-freshener to mask the odor. But for how long? Moreover, pet urine usually consists of acid, which can destroy fragile surfaces. This article will provide pet owners with some useful advice about how to efficiently clean dog pee out of your carpet or furniture, both the stain and the smell.
It's very important to remove any odor on the carpet or sofa because dogs are attracted by the scent and it's highly likely your dog will return to that same spot and do it again. However, the secret to cleaning up all the evidence of the accident is not necessarily expensive and messy. Follow these simple steps:
If you are a lucky one, your pet will leave a solid, well-formed nugget you can simply pick up. But if your dog left something a little mushier, roll up your sleeves. First, remove as many hard particles as possible. Try not to squish or spread the mess. Then use the trusty white vinegar and baking soda method described above to clean the mess and eliminate the odor.
In a container or jar, mix brown sugar, lemon peels and water.
Shake the mixture well so that everything is thoroughly mixed.
Quickly loosen the cap in order to degas the mixture, otherwise, it may burst.
The experts at Top Wood Green Cleaning Services say to leave the mixture to sit for three months. After that your citrus, chemical-free detergent will be ready for use!
With these tips, you can avoid spending a lot of money forspecial detergents and air-freshener, by using the power of products you may already have at home!
