Carpets get a lot of use and can acquire unpleasant smells over time. If you have a pet the amount of dirt particles increases and pet messes can happen to your carpet. Deodorizing products are available to help you take care of any unwanted smells your carpet has. Carpet deodorizer is widely available and inexpensive. We used Arm & Hammer Pet Fresh carpet odor eliminator with vacuum booster.
To deodorize your carpet you will need the deodorizing product and a vacuum. First vacuum the carpet to remove loose dirt and fur. Next sprinkle large amounts of the deodorizing powder all over the carpet. Rub the powder in with a brush and let it sit for at a minimum of 30 minutes. You can leave it in longer for a deeper cleaning if desired.
After the amount of time has passed, vacuum the deodorizing powder from the carpet. Vacuum carefully to thoroughly remove the powder from each section of the carpet. Carpet deodorizers often smell strong so it is highly recommended that you deodorize with windows and doors open. Some powder can migrate around the room it’s best not to have food, children or pets present for the process.
Carpet deodorizing is good for maintenance. However, it doesn’t mean that you can skip carpet cleaning all together. Your carpet still needs to be washed annually with a reputable carpet cleaner. For other carpet maintenance you can use a dry cleaning compound. This compound can remove some dirt and be used to treat stains.
