Preparing your carpet for odour removal
Dog odour in carpets can be caused by a variety of factors. Understanding the root cause of the smell is crucial in order to effectively eliminate it. One common cause of dog odour in carpets is pet dander. Dogs shed their fur and skin cells, which can get trapped in the carpet fibres and emit an unpleasant smell.
Another cause of dog odour is urine. Accidents happen, and if your dog has had an accident on the carpet, the odour can be difficult to remove. The urine can seep deep into the carpet padding, making it challenging to eliminate the smell completely.
Additionally, dogs can bring in dirt, mud, and other outdoor elements into the house, which can contribute to a lingering smell. It’s important to understand these causes so that you can take the necessary steps to effectively remove the dog odour from your carpets.
Homemade and natural remedies for removing dog odour from carpets
Before you begin the process of removing dog odour from your carpets, it’s important to properly prepare the area. Start by thoroughly vacuuming the carpet to remove any loose dirt, pet hair, or debris. Use a high-quality vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter to ensure that you capture as much of the dog odour-causing particles as possible.
Once you’ve prepped your carpet, it’s time to move on to the next step in the odour removal process.
Homemade products to eliminate dog smell
If you prefer to use natural and homemade remedies, there are several options available to help eliminate dog odour from your carpets. One effective method is to create a vinegar and water solution. Mix equal parts of white vinegar and water in a spray bottle and apply it to the affected areas of the carpet. Vinegar is known for its odour-neutralizing properties and can help eliminate the dog smell.
Another homemade remedy is to use baking soda. Sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda over the carpet and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. Baking soda is great at absorbing odours and can help neutralise the dog smell. After the designated time, vacuum up the baking soda and enjoy the fresh scent.

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.
