As much as pet owners may love our furry friends, there’s no denying that sometimes, pets can cause unwanted smells. It’s embarrassing when you have guests over and they can instantly tell you’ve got a pet simply because of the smell of your apartment. Plus, you always want to leave your apartment feeling fresh for future renters, and that includes trying to minimize any kinds of odors. The good news is there are a few simple steps you can take to keep your apartment smelling fresh and good.
Keeping Air Fresh
The easiest way to keep the air quality of your apartment fresh and feeling good is to leave windows open, but that’s not always a feasible option. If you’re unable to leave your windows open for extended periods of time to keep fresh air circulating, you may need to purchase an air purifier. This will remove smells and other particles from your air and make the whole space feel fresher and cleaner.
The worst thing you can do is let pet messes sit around for too long. If there are any bathroom accidents involving your pet, make sure you get the issue taken care of as soon as possible. Additionally, keeping your pet brushed and washed regularly will help ensure that your home will smell as clean as it was the day you started renting. You should also wash any pet accessories, like bedding or even soft stuffed toys that can hold onto nasty smells.
If you make your home easier to clean from the get-go, it can make getting rid of unwanted smells a lot more manageable. If you have duvet covers, those are a lot easier to clean than quilts. Slipcovers are also an easy-to-wash option. You’ll want to make sure that your pet’s paws are wiped off and clean whenever they enter and exit your apartment as well!
