Home for Sale? Pets and Selling Real Estate

Pets_House.JPG

If you live with animals, you can only benefit by reducing and hopefully eliminating pet odors, odors which you may not even notice. Most of us have company over from time to time or maybe you are selling your home.

Hard as it may be to believe, many people react negatively to the presence of pets whether due to allergies, fear or just indifference. Dogs, Cats and Real Estate | Realty Times has some easy tips.

Make sure you and your pet are not home on the day of the open house or during showings.

If your pet has had "accidents" around the house, the Humane Society of the United States recommends buying a black light at a home supply store so you can find old urine stains. You should clean these areas thoroughly because your pet will return to the scene of its "crime" and do it again if the area isn't neutralized, says the society.

To clean washable items, add a one-pound box of baking soda to regular detergent and air dry the items.

For carpet and upholstery, rent an extractor or wet vac, advises the society. Once the area is clean, use a high-quality pet odor neutralizer, available at pet supply stores. If the area still looks stained, try a carpet stain remover. The society says you should avoid using a steam cleaner because it will permanently set the stain and odor. Don't use cleaning chemicals - they don't cover the smell and may actually encourage your pet to come back to reinforce the scent in that area, says the society.

Pets and Glow Sticks on July 4th -- Just Say No

GlowCat.jpg

Fourth of July can be a lot of fun. Maybe not so much for our pets. It's easy to forget that our pets don't have a clue what all the noise and partying is about.

Revelers, especially children, have been known to dress up pets with the glow sticks or glow jewelry that they are playing with. Along with fireworks, these are toxic for our pets.

It may look adorable, but if those are chewed up and swallowed, plastics and glowing chemicals are not good for animal bodies, likely resulting in gastrointestinal irritation, as well as intestinal blockage. One more problem no one needs.
