December 18, 2013

Unfortunately for homeowners, one of the first symptoms of a “stressed-out” pet often is having an accident indoors. With the countless stains and messes that come with holiday entertaining, the last thing pet owners want or need is a pet stain to clean up and the lingering odor that comes with it.

The experts at Chem-Dry recommend the following steps for pet lovers to ensure a joyful and accident-free holiday season with their furry companions:

  • Create a safe space for pets away from the crowd that includes toys, a bed, and other familiar items like food and a water bowl to help decrease anxiety.
  • Stick to a familiar schedule and limit the amount of changes pets are exposed to by taking walks and feeding them at regular times.
  • Pet-proof the home by keeping holiday decorations, electrical cords, food, alcoholic beverages, and holiday plants out of reach to avoid stressful trips to the vet.

When accidents do occur, it is vital to act quickly to remove the stains. The experts at Chem-Dry recommend the following remedies for removing pet urine and odor to preserve both carpets and home health.
