“Fun” Fact: As the temperature and humidity rise, the odor from pet stains can become increasingly noticeable. Yuck! For pet owners, pet stain odor is very common and maybe not as complex as some may think. The danger of animal urine isn’t always obvious, but we are here to shed some light.
Not only are pet odors unpleasant, they can also pose a health risk you and especially to children. Urine and all animal waste carry bacteria that could cause illness. That’s why, when cleaning up an accident in the home, you should always be using gloves to not only clean the spot but to clean the materials you used to clean as well.
But it doesn’t stop there.
It’s easy to believe that once the stain is gone, the lingering odor is a harmless nuisance you can spray Febreze on and forget about. Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. If you are inhaling urine smell, you are inhaling microscopic particles of the urine itself, meaning inhaling actual animal urine. It also can go beyond the initial stain and soak into baseboards, furniture, drywall, and other places that don’t leave a visible stain but continue to smell.
If that wasn’t bad enough, it gets worse.
Dog and cat urine contains ammonia, which is an irritant to the lungs. When you’re dealing with large amounts of urine, your lungs could feel like they are burning. Ammonia in large quantities or over a long period of time has a number of negative effects including:
- Burning of the throat
- Respiratory infections, such as bronchitis
- Eye and skin irritation
- Lightheadedness and migraines
Those with weak immune systems, allergies, asthma, and children are especially susceptible to exposure to ammonia. You don’t want your home becoming a health risk to you, your friends, and your family, so completely eradicating pet odors should be a high priority.
