4 Steps to an Odor-Free Pet Home with NoStench®
Having pets can be one of life's greatest joys, but it often comes with a less-than-pleasant side effect: odors. Whether it's from their beds, their toys, or even the pets themselves, these odors can make your house feel less like a home.
However, you don't need to choose between your furry friends and a fresh-smelling house. With a few simple changes, you can achieve an odor-free pet home.
Step 1: Regular Cleaning and Grooming of Your Pets
The first step in combating pet odors is to ensure that your pets themselves are clean. Regular grooming helps to minimize the amount of pet dander and hair in your home, both of which can contribute to a pet smell.
According to the American Kennel Club, you should aim to bathe your dog at least once every three months, but this frequency may increase depending on your pet's breed and lifestyle.
Consider also brushing your pet's teeth, as bad breath can contribute to unpleasant pet smells. The American Veterinary Medical Association recommends daily dental care for pets for optimal dental health.
Step 2: Regular Cleaning of Pet Areas and Belongings
Keeping your pet's living area clean is crucial in maintaining an odor-free home. This includes their bed, toys, and eating areas. Pet beds in particular can harbor odors, so ensure these are cleaned regularly. A 2021 study found that pet beds can often be a hotspot for bacteria, so regular cleaning isn't just about odors, but health too.
A good approach is to use Everest's NoStench® Laundry Shield, which is designed to protect against odors caused by mold and mildew. This product can be used for both pet bedding and toys.
Step 3: Proper Ventilation and Air Filtration
Good airflow can help to minimize pet odors. Regularly open your windows to allow fresh air into your home and stale, pet-scented air to flow out. Using air purifiers and filters can also help to maintain a fresh-smelling home.
Everest's line of sub-micron air filters can filter out particulates as little as 0.1 micron in size, providing an effective solution for airborne pet odors.
Step 4: Utilize Odor Prevention Products
Odor eliminators may be great at masking odors, but they do nothing to combat the real problem. Add products like the NoStench® Odor Prevention Spray to your arsenal to prevent odors from ever taking hold in the first place. These products are designed to prevent odors rather than simply mask them. You can use these products on pet bedding, carpets, and any other area of your home where pet odors linger.
Keeping a pet-friendly home odor-free can be a challenge, but with these five steps, it doesn't have to be a daunting task. By staying on top of cleaning, using the right products, and focusing on prevention, you can enjoy the company of your furry friends without sacrificing the freshness of your home.
