Whats That Smell!! Getting Rid of Pet Odors!

One of the bigeest turn offs when walking into a home is the unmistakable smell of pet urine, particularly cat urine. While it is very difficult to totally eliminate the odor, and in some cases it may actually be necessary to replace sections of floor, carpet or drywall, some of the enzyme cleaners today do a pretty remarkable job of removing the stain and smell if treated quickly! Many pet stores sell these products and I can honestly say in many cases you will be able to reduce or eliminate the odor. Professional carpet cleaning companies also offer enzyme products that they inject into the carpet and padding before steam cleaning. Just food for thought before listing your home!

This is a great post for homeowners with pets... They really need to think about this because buyers and agents can automatically pick up on the odor of a pet with one foot in the door. I have had clients stop at the foyer and say "lets go to the next house"
