Rid Your Home Of Pet Smells Without Getting Rid Of Your Pet


If you’re a pet owner, you know about the trials and tribulations of owning a furry friend. Aside from being stared at while eating and having to tiptoe through toys on occasion, one of the big issues with owning a pet is keeping your home fresh and tidy.

So how do you remove the smell of your pet, so that you feel comfortable bringing guests into your home? You’ll be glad to hear that it’s relatively easy, and it doesn’t require you getting rid of your pets!

Baking soda is not only useful in the kitchen, but it can come to your assistance throughout your home. It makes for an excellent odour absorber, as it has highly absorbent properties that draw the odours from fabrics and materials. All you have to do is sprinkle baking soda, leave it to rest for a few hours, and then vacuum it up.

An easy way to freshen up your home is to simply let fresh air into the house. Opening windows and doors once a week for ten minutes or so – even in colder months – can make a huge difference to the air quality in your home.

Of course, the essential task to do on a regular basis is vacuuming. As any pet owner knows, this is a bigger task than non-pet owners will ever know. For starters, you need to take all your furniture apart and vacuum everything thoroughly. Pet hair can get everywhere and it can result in your home never quite smelling fresh. Unfortunately, it can also be quite taxing on a run-of-the-mill vacuum, meaning you need something up to the task at hand.

As the name implies, the Miele C3 Complete Cat and Dog Vacuum Cleaner is designed to make light work of pet hairs. It operates at an incredible 2000 watts, while the custom designed Turbobrush, the Active AirClean filter will not only suck up any pet hairs, but works to absorb odours too.

Dyson prides itself on powerful and consistent suction, making the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal an excellent choice for pet owners. Along with incredible suction, the Dyson Big Ball Animal comes with multiple floor heads and tools to tackle the toughest of jobs.

If you need something a little more compact, both Dyson and Bosch have you covered. The Dyson V8 Animal and the Bosch Pets Athlet Vacuum Cleaner are designed for the pet owner. Not only are they incredibly powerful, but the cordless design means that you can get into every nook and cranny in your home.


Dyson 360 Eye Robot

It’s recommended that you vacuum once a week if you have pets. That can be quite the commitment and there are some weeks where it’s just not possible to find the necessary time. If that is the case, technology can come to the rescue.

The Dyson 360 Eye features a 360 degree vision system that lets it see all around the room and once and interpret its surroundings. It can navigate independently and even knows where it has been and where it is yet to clean. With the Dyson name attached, you can be sure that it generates plenty of suction, ensuring that it can capture particles as small as pollen and mould.

You don’t need to supervise the Dyson 360 Eye, meaning it’s perfect for the time poor. The free Dyson Link app lets you control and schedule your 360 Eye’s cleaning duties, and you can even see a map of its progress.
