A dedicated DIY-er is ready to take on the world. If you have a will and a wi-fi connection, you can learn to do anything around the house. You can learn to fix a banister so you don’t lose your balance on the stairs. You can learn to grow a vegetable garden on your window sill so your food always tastes fresh. What you can’t do is do-it-yourself pet odor removal. There are several reasons that a professional will always be the better choice for pet odor removal.
Can’t know all the tricks
Professionals know cleaning like, well, it’s their job. You probably don’t know the right time to use an enzymatic based cleaning product on pet odors. You don’t know which cleaners will get the smell of a wet dog out of your paint without stripping your walls bare. Learning all the tips and tricks of the trade will take more time than you probably have to give. Why struggle to master pet odor removal when professionals already know what to do?
Can’t stick with cleaning enough
Cleaning pet odor takes a dedication that many people simply don’t have. If you want your house to smell of lemon cleaner instead of loose pets, it takes a lot of time and energy. The problem that many DIYers have is that they’re not willing to put in the time to really, thoroughly clean their space.
It may take a few different passes with a few different cleaning supplies to get your home smelling fresher than ever. It can be frustrating to try to do this in your own space. While you’re working, you also have to live with the smell that’s sticking with you. Professionals can do all those houses at once and get your home like new again.
Can’t use the best equipment
According to most do-it-yourselfers, there’s nothing that can’t be cured with a little elbow grease. Unfortunately, that’s completely untrue. You can scrub on your hands and knees for hours, and a single pass with a heated water extractor (“steam cleaner”) will do a better job reaching deeper, ground in dirt and buildup that causes odors to stick around. A pass with a mop or broom just isn’t going to do the trick.
Since many pet odors are carried deep in your carpet or the fabrics of your home, it’s essential that you have the best tools in place to help you reach them. Cutting edge equipment will do a better job than you can. Hang up your mop and bucket and seek a professional’s help.
Can’t even smell the full odor
The last reason that DIY pet odor removal fails is that you don’t even know what you’re smelling. Over time, you become accustomed to a certain level of odor. You don’t smell it the same way that you don’t smell your brand of shampoo or laundry detergent after using it for years. On the other hand, a professional entering your home is going to smell it right away–and so will any friends or colleagues you bring over.
You can DIY your way through a lot of household chores. Pet odor removal needs a professional. You won’t have the expertise, time, tools, or even the ability to smell that they do. No matter what the occasion, get your home smelling fresh with professional help.
