I have pets. How can I keep my home clean and odor free?

  1. Minimize pet access to carpeted areas and upholstered furniture as much as possible.
  2. Respond quickly when you discover a pet “accident’.
  3. When you discover an “accident” area, blot the excess, soak the spot with a neutral cleaning agent, and blot (don’t rub) to remove the moisture.
  4. Call a certified cleaning professional. Avoid the grocery store remedies. Most merely mask the odor while the urine contamination problem worsens.
  5. Clean more frequently. According to public heath officials, homes with pets and children should have carpet and furnishings cleaned more frequently. Cleaning not only removes normal household soils, but it also removes pet hair and body oils that contribute to ongoing odor problems.
