Those beloved pets can be smelly on carpets. Can those smells be removed?
In many homes, there are carpets and also pet. To many, these adorable animals can be our best friends, but the little rascals can cause our noses to crinkle up sometimes. This is caused many times when they get wet and lay on carpets, as well as other reasons, but if you are an animal lover, you would understand that it’s worth it.

It is common for pets to lay on carpets and rugs in your home. Why? The fibers of the carpets, especially the natural ones, give your pet a pleasant sensation. That is why they tend to spend a lot of time on them. These carpets usually take on a lot of traffic, especially from those pets. Most, if not all of the time, your pets leave their characteristic smell, fur and even their urine on those carpets.
Obviously, we all know that this is not healthy for your pet and much less for your family. At My Carpet Stinks, we care about both and we want to help you out. We want to help you by giving some tips that you can do to help reduce and even remove the smells left behind from your pets on those rugs or carpets. Nothing is better than a professional cleaning from My Carpet Stinks, but when the carpets are not too bad, you can try these methods that could do the trick for you!
Instructions to remove the smell of pets (dogs, cats, etc.)
- Perhaps the worst thing your pet can do is to urinate your carpet, as it really gets embedded the longer that it is left sitting in there. If this is the case, you should go immediately to dry the area. Because, if you wait longer, bacteria will multiply, spreading on your carpet and generating a truly horrible smell.
- Use specific carpet cleaners or deodorizers that you can find in your local hardware store or even supermarket that say they are for urine stains and smells. They are your best shot for doing it yourself and some aren’t too bad. You really want to counteract the odors of your dog or cat as soon as possible. Be careful with the cleaners that contain ammonia, as this usually leaves as a mark that pets in the home can recognize and help them claim the spot and do it again.
- Then you can always use a steam machine that you can rent, unless you own one yourself. They can not compare to professional steam machines, but to be fair, they can be enough for your stains and smells, is not that bad. It can be a tedious task to get the smells and stains out of those carpets, which is why many people call us at My Carpet Stinks. Who really wants to deal with that mess?
