Getting rid of odors is one of the things that homeowners should worry about because proper hygiene is important in keeping the household healthy. Dog urine odor, for instance, can be disgusting for some pet owners because such distinct odor is really strong enough so much so that such an annoying smell lingers around the house.

We all know that it is usually dog's nature to habitually pee on the same exact spot around the house. When dog pee is left to dry naturally, it can give a very strong, awful, and distinct dog pee odor as time passes by. This is why you need to clean up the dog's urine immediately or as soon as it happens. Obviously, you don't want the smell of accumulated dog urine to overpower the house.

Floor carpets are the common victims to dog pee. Carpets are very tough to clean since the urine can easily penetrate through it and are usually able to spread on its underside. Indeed, dog urine odor can really seem hard to get rid of, but with patience as well as the right cleaner and odor-neutralizing agent in your possession, it is possible to clean your carpet back to its original state.

Normally, the first thing to do is to sponge up as much urine as possible using a piece of cloth. Place a piece of cloth or a paper towel underneath the soiled carpet and apply pressure to maximize the extraction of the urine. After removing the urine, the next thing to do would be to neutralize the smell of the pee.

To neutralize the odor, the pet owner has two options:

1. His first option would be to use a mixture of common household chemicals. Common household chemicals used as odor remover are easy and safe to prepare. Here is how to begin the odor neutralizing step: Pour in a mixture of water and white vinegar and sponge the mixture up the way you would normally handle the pet urine. Vinegar dissolves the uric acid crystals derived from the dog’s pee thereby neutralizing the odor. Pour a mixture of baking soda, 3/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide and dishwashing soap into the affected part of the carpet and then let it dry. If you have a vacuum at home, use it to siphon-off the residue of the dried mixture.

2. If you don't want to have to prepare the odor remover yourself with the use of household chemicals, an even more convenient step is to buy one of those odor-removing cleaners which can be bought at the pet stores so you can use it in your next urine odor cleaning. In fact, it is easier to just order for it online.

Keep in mind, though, that removing dog urine odor is just a temporary solution to free the house from smelling like a dog house. Indeed, getting rid of odors may be as easy as using an odor cleaner and neutralizer; however, it would also be wise for pet owners to consult a vet to help solve pet peeing issues. A qualified dog trainer can also help train your dog to pee only in permitted locations.
