There is a very specific type of ‘hijacking’ every time a furry buddy enters your life—and, unavoidably, your car. Wet dog smell is one unusual and slightly frightful pet odours that filter into your car’s vents, seat fabrics and carpet.
There are two methods that can be used to combat this invasion. You could learn to live with the stench and explain that it is part of the territory of pet owners (much to the dismay of your friends, family, and anyone unfortunate enough to accept a lift). Alternately, you could get rid of the odour and have your car smelling fresh again. We know which one we’d prefer!
Why does my pet smell?
Don’t worry if your pet has a slight odour. Pet odour and “wet dog odour” are quite normal and can occur for a variety of reasons. However a pet odour eliminator like Bio one™ could be just what you need.
First off, despite the fact that they don’t sweat as much as humans do, pets do perspire via their feet and from other parts of skin that lack hair, including the nose. Even though this sweat doesn’t smell right away, it might develop a slight odour over time, which is why it’s crucial to keep your furry friends clean.
How to remove pet smells from your car interiors
Wash anything that can be removed. Rubber mats, vehicle seat covers, and your dog’s blanket all fall under this category. Rubber floor mats should never be washed at temperatures above 30 degrees celsius to prevent melting. Always check to make sure they can be washed in a machine first. Disinfectant should be sprayed onto an old cloth and used to wipe down any removable parts that cannot be washed in a machine.
For leather interiors, make sure to spot-check it first. Use a gentle cloth and enzyme cleaner to remove pet odours. When washing anything, always read the label and any washing instructions.
- Use an enzyme cleaner
Using an enzyme cleaner spray, such as Bio one™ will help remove any lingering odours. Saturate the area with the Bio one™ and allow the enzymes to work for at least 5 to 10 minutes. This gives the enzyme enough time to eat away at the odour-causing bacteria. The enzymatic compounds break down the core components of the stains and remove the smell completely rather than just masking them.
- Leave to dry
Once the enzyme cleaner has been used, scrub the area and leave the area to dry. The pet odour should be completely gone without causing any harm to your car’s interior. Your car furnishings will be left with a fragrant smell of lemon, orange and neroli flower.
When it comes to a long-term solution for getting rid of the pet odour smell in your car, Bio one™ is your best friend. Its natural odour-eliminating properties work wonders in restoring the smell of your car.
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.
