Handy Hacks to Clean Dog Smell, Mold, & Mildew

Getting Rid of Dog Smell from Your House

You don’t get rid of the source; you won’t get rid of the smell. No matter how much you clean out the house and use all of your air fresheners, you won’t get anywhere until you vacuum out the dog hair and dander that is present in the house. In the end, you will have a house that smells like dogs.

Enzymatic cleaners are one of the most popular cleaning items in stores that is a must-have for every pet owner since they remove dog smell from houses. Although it’s not a permanent solution, an air purifier can also help with the pet smell in house.

These are a few of the tips that home sellers should follow to get rid of the dog smell from the house they intend to sell:

● Begin the cleaning session by opening up every window so that fresh air can cross over.

● Now, grab the vacuum cleaner and clean out all of the rooms. Dog hair and dander need to be removed to eliminate the dog smell.

● Mop the floors with scented floor cleaners.

● Mix a 1:1 ratio of fresh water and distilled white vinegar and spray it abundantly around the house.

● Baking soda absorbs strong smells rather than covers them. Pour baking soda into a few cups and place them around the house.

Getting Rid of the Mildew Brown Spots on the Walls

Mildew brown spots on the walls mostly develop on the spots that have excessive moisture present against them. This could be due to a leakage, water pipe damage, or even bad ventilation. People whose house starts getting brown mold problems should clean it out but should never ignore the source of the problem because if the cause is left unchanged, the brown mold will be right back.

Speaking from my personal experience, there are two main causes of brown mold appearing on your walls. One, the light brown mold on walls is due to condensation build-up from past colder months causing mildew to grow on the surface of the walls’ paint. The moisture in your house or bathroom helps the mildew residue grow to the point it becomes visible to the naked eye. Another reason you might be seeing brown spots or streaks on the walls is due to in-house smoking. The smoke from a cigarette doesn’t disappear into thin air; some of it gets absorbed by the walls. Once enough tar enters, you can see them as brown spots or streaks.

Now that we know our problem’s possible causes let’s get to the solution of how to remove brown mold from your walls! Cleaning brown mold on the ceiling is pretty simple and requires only pantry items. Grab your chlorine bleach, and spray on the spots or streaks that are dirtying up your wall. Let the solution do its magic for 3-4 minutes before gently scrubbing the surface with a soft cloth. Scrubbing aggressively can ruin your paint and make a mess! Keep in mind that there is a high chance you will see those spots in the near future. There is nothing wrong with your house, paint, or walls. It’s just natural and something you will need to clean every time it shows up.

Getting Rid of mold from treated or untreated wood

Mold is something no one can escape, and it is only a matter of time before it appears on your wooden doors, furniture, and other fittings. If you are looking for the best way to get rid of mold and appropriately clean your wooden stuff, here’s how.

Mold is not dangerous but can definitely become the source of a minor infection and irritation, so why take the risk. Wear long rubber gloves and a face mask to ensure you aren’t exposed to the mold spores while cleaning them out.

Install a HEPA filter into the dust collector of your vacuum before using it on the mold-infected areas to get rid of any loose mold spores. Once finished, take the vacuum outdoors and clean out the dust collector. Ensure that the plastic bag is sealed so that the spores cannot escape.

Now we get to the part where we clean the mold off your wood. Provided the mold hasn’t already penetrated deep inside the wooden door or furniture, you can still kill it and get rid of it completely. There are three recipes for killing mold, depending on how strong it has grown.

First, add a teaspoon of dish soap to a plastic water spray bottle. Spray the mold-infected area using a soft brush and gentle scrub against the wooden surface. Dry the surface and check for the mold. If it’s still there, go to the next option.

Second, grab distilled white vinegar instead of soap in the water inside a spray bottle. Do the same and see if it has done its job. If not, it’s time to bring out the big guns.

Third, grab borax from the pantry. Combine a teaspoon of borax with a cup of water and apply the solution to the mold-infected spot. Scrub away but this time, let the solution be soaked in by the wood. Run the room fan to ensure the surface still dries up while the solution is inside the wood.
