Eliminating Skunk Odor from Your Home

Eliminating Skunk Odor from Your Home

After a family pet is sprayed by a skunk, it will often attempt to rid its fur of the smell by rubbing against your home’s furniture and carpet. The result is an entire home that smells like a skunk – an odor that can be difficult if not impossible to eliminate. The first thing you should do is thoroughly bathe your pet in order to rid their fur of the smell. Speed is a necessity – the longer the smell stays on the pet’s body, the more deeply it will penetrate its fur. After you have removed the odor from your pet’s fur, you may begin the process of removing the unwanted smell from your home.
