5 Electrodry Tips To Eliminating Dog Odour

By Property Management

The good news is that removing dog odour is a relatively easy fix.

The most important tip to stop your home smelling like a doghouse is to keep it clean. This means:

  • Vacuum the lounge, carpet and hard floors regularly to remove any dog hair.
  • Wash the dog bed and dog blanket once a week
  • Have the carpet and lounge professionally cleaned regularly. This is necessary to remove the oil from the pet-hair that holds a lot of odour.

Odour Eaters for Pet Accidents

It is a well-known fact that our pets like to urinate in the same spot. Pet urine contains uric salts that sits in the carpet and carpet backing. The uric salts attract moisture and foster bacterial growth. It’s the off gas from the bacteria that causes the horrible, pesky pet odours that just seem to keep coming back.

Here’s what we suggest you try:

  • Use an enzyme based pet odour remover. One we recommend is “urinefree” (urinefree.com.au)
  • Mask the odour with an air freshener such as ambi-pur
  • Professional cleaning to treat the source of the urine odour. Electrodry can inject a product into the carpet and underlay to remove the bacteria and dissolve the uric salts

If you have a chronic issue in a particular room then you may need to look at replacing the carpet.
