There’s no doubt that having furry friends around is a blessing, and we all love to have them around. Coming home after a long, tiring day and watching your four-legged baby go all excited, running here and there, and humping on you just to greet and love you is one of the most amazing things one can experience. The joy of playing fetch with your dog or taking them out on a stroll in the evening is not only relaxing but also good for our mental well-being. However, all this happiness comes with a price to pay. While you might bathe them regularly, it is natural for them to smell funky. Furthermore, installments such as carpets or couches are bound to become victims of your pet’s accidents.
Worry not! If your beloved furry friend has marked its territory on your couch, our couch cleaning specialists have got your back. We use safe and pet-friendly cleaning agents and odour elimination products that are highly effective in cleaning, removing the unpleasant smells from your couch, and ensuring that it smells fresh at all times. While professional couch cleaning can quickly save your day, here are a few ways that will come in handy in case of emergencies:
1. Use Baking Soda
It is a truth universally acknowledged (just as Jane Austen might say it) that any couch, once dominated by a pet, is in desperate need of some baking soda magic. Think about it—that meek little box tucked away in a corner of your kitchen shelf is the only magical weapon that you might need to tackle the awful pet odours. Whether it’s from your wet dog deciding the couch is the perfect spot to dry off or your dog thinking that the couch is its territory, our beloved four-legged friend sure knows how to make their presence felt and smelled! This is where baking soda comes in to save the day. It is an easy, affordable, and totally non-toxic way to bring back that ‘just like new’ freshness. All you have to do is sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda on your couch, let it absorb the odour for 15-20 minutes, and then wipe it away. And voila! You’ve now transformed your couch from smelly to fresh.
2. Use an Enzymatic Cleaner
It is no surprise that sometimes the natural dog smell can even be accompanied by the awful odour of their pee. In such scenarios, the odour can be so disturbing and overpowering that it not only makes it unbearable to stay in your living room but also makes your place look uninviting. The best way to address pet accidents on the couch is to get your hands on an effective enzymatic cleaner. With this, you will be easily able to eliminate the pee stains and all the nasty odours persisting on your lovely couch, ensuring that it looks and smells fresh.
3. Use a DIY Essential Oil Deodoriser
This is another easy yet effective couch cleaning method that works wonders at eliminating all the unpleasant smells from your couch. All you have to do is make a great concoction by adding ½ cup white vinegar, ½ cup water, 5–5 drops of eucalyptus and lemon essential oils, 1 cup baking soda, and 1 teaspoon salt. Put this mixture in a spray bottle, and there you have it. Your own effective and affordable deodoriser at your rescue. Give it a good mix and let the solution settle for 5 minutes. Now, before spraying it directly over your couch, do a patch test. Spray the solution on a small and hidden area to see whether it is safe for your couch or not. Then spray the solution on the affected area and leave it overnight. The next morning, vacuum your couch thoroughly to remove any baking soda residue. This will remove all the odour from your couch, leaving it smelling pleasant.
4. Invest in Professional Service
While these DIYs are a great fix for a smelly couch, you might still want to consider investing in a professional couch cleaning service if you are unsure of what cleaners and methods would best suit your couch. Not knowing the right way to deal with dog odours can do more harm than good. Professional couch cleaners, on the other hand, have the expertise, industry-approved cleaning products, and state-of-the-art techniques to quickly tackle all kinds of pet odours and accidents on your couch. They will remove all the stains, smells, and even the pet dander from your couch, making sure that it looks clean and brand new.
