Dogs enrich our lives, they make us laugh and keep us company. When dogs are trained well, cleaning can be easier, however, it’s no secret that they often leave a bit of a whiff wherever they go in our home.
As much as we love them, nobody wants to live in a house that smells like them. Luckily, there are a few tips and tricks you can try to stop this happening.
Use the right products
A man’s best friend needs somewhere to rest. Whether it’s upstairs or downstairs, they require a comfy and safe place to get some shut-eye. Typically, they have their own dog bed. You might think that’s a good way of confining bad smells to one spot, but when they use them every day, multiple times, they can become a breeding ground for bad bacteria. And this might be why your home smells a little too much like your canine companion.
To get rid of dirty doggie smells, you need the right products. Luckily, an enzyme spray, like Bio one™, will break down those odour-causing particles. Bio one™ is totally safe to use around pets as it’s natural and non-toxic (as well as vegan and more planet-friendly). Without harsh chemicals, it won’t cause any irritation or dry out your pet’s skin. To make your furry friend’s spot smell fresh, thoroughly spray it with the solution – drenching every inch. When the affected area is damp, the friendly bacteria work their magic. Leave for at least ten minutes, wipe off excess and leave to air dry.
Sanitising their bed is a great start, but a consistently clean and tidy home will help banish bad smells. It’s one of the best ways to stop odours in their tracks, before you notice them develop. Make sure you’re vacuuming weekly (or more often for a particularly hairy pooch), cleaning and disinfecting your floors as well as any other fabrics and surfaces they touch. Running around after your pet can be exhausting. But to stop unpleasant pongs, clean up after every accident straight away. Whether it’s poo, wee or mucky paw prints – wipe down any messes on carpets or hardwood floors. Bio one™ is a great all-rounder which you can use for all of these tasks. It removes 99% of germs on any hard or soft surface, but always follow the instructions and test a small section to see how it reacts first.
Wipe and dry off your dog
Most dogs absolutely adore walks and they love to be outdoors. Regardless of the weather. Snow, rain, sunshine, they don’t mind. After each outing, gently wipe them down and clean their paws. This will stop dirty trails throughout the house and smells popping up. If it’s been raining, they’ll need a proper drying off with a towel. Wet dog smell is even stronger, so don’t let them jump straight into bed or your sofa either.
Clean your carpet regularly
Our furry friends sometimes leave us unwanted gifts around the house. Unsurprisingly, toilet mishaps are one of the most common causes of a nasty odour. When these surprises pop up, scoop the poop straight away. Afterwards, use Bio one™ on the affected area to remove both the stain and smell. As your dog sits or rubs on your carpet, it leaves behind chemicals from their body and hair, which can get stuck deep down in the fibres. Naturally, that makes the carpet smell. To nip this problem in the bud, spray your carpet weekly with Bio one™ and leave to air dry.
There you have it. Even with adventurous and playful dogs, your home can still stay fresh with a few regular steps. Just remember, frequent cleaning and using an enzyme cleaner, like Bio one™ is key. It keeps pongs at bay and nice aromas lingering for longer. That will make your home a happier place for both you and your four-legged friend.
What are enzymes?
Don’t be fooled to think that because enzymes are natural they are less effective than chemical cleaners. Enzymes are nature’s very own powerful cleaning tools. Making them the go to choice for pet owners who do not want to spray harmful chemicals around their pets and their home.
Simply put, enzymes are all around us performing millions of important tasks in our bodies and in nature every single day. They are a type of protein that act like a biological catalyst to speed up the break down of organic compounds.
Similarly to how saliva, (which contains enzymes), initiates the digestion process by breaking down food in our mouths, cleaning enzymes use the same ‘enzymatic digestion’ to effectively break down and eradicate the organic proteins present in urine, faeces, vomit, drool, dirt, food, and more.
This process not only makes cleaning easier but also prevents the growth of bad bacteria – the root cause of those unpleasant odours – in the air, on surfaces, and within the fibres of your soft furnishings.
Try out Bio one™ today, vomit and the other nasties is what nature created enzymes for.
