No More Smelly Carpets – Getting Rid of Carpet Odours
We have to use pet friendly products when we deodorize our carpet
A carpet in your home is great as it can help to cover a bare floor. It can also work as a sound barrier and keep the drafts at bay. However, when it comes to carpet cleaning it can become a chore in itself. More often than not, people waste their hard earned money on renting a carpet shampooer that causes more damage than good. If you cannot afford to hire a professional carpet cleaning company, here are some tips that will help you to remove the smelly odour from your carpets.
When you have two dogs and a cat and only one room with a carpet it in, the room where those same cute (but yes sometimes smelly pets) like to go and hang out. then it becomes priority to be able to get rid of carpet odours but to also use products that won’t harm them.
Use Environmentally Friendly Carpet Cleaners (in our case pet-friendly)
Ground in dirt and stains are annoying. They can make your carpet look worse for wear and if you happen to suffer from allergies to dust, a carpet in your home can cause you to sneeze repeatedly. One way to clean your carpet effectively is to use environmentally friendly carpet cleaners.
Musty odors in a carpet can be removed with baking soda. Simply sprinkle some baking soda over your carpet and then use the vacuum to pick up the baking soda. What we love best is to use the Arm and Hammer Carpet Deodorizer. It’s made of you got it Arm & Hammer’s baking soda and they have scented versions for the carpet. Not only does it deodorize our carpet but the whole room smells better!
Another way to clean your carpet is to add some white vinegar to a bucket of water. Fill up a spray bottle with the liquid mixture and spray it on your carpet. Concentrate on the areas that have stains by using a scrub brush to remove the stains once you have sprayed the area with the vinegar and water solution.
Open the windows and allow the air to dry the carpet. After the carpet has dried completely run the vacuum over it once again. You will notice that the carpet looks cleaner and does not smell musty either. A rule of thumb to avoid getting stains on your carpet is to make sure that youngsters drink their juice in the kitchen. Sitting at the table will help to prevent unnecessary spills on your carpet.
