7 tips to control odors naturally when you live with a cat

Use vinegar to clean your home

If your home stinks due to strong odors from urine and feces in your cat’s litter box or your cat’s pheromones’ markings, get a cleaner that contains vinegar to clean your home.

Use a natural air freshener in your home

While trying to control the odor caused by cats’ urine and feces in your home, you shouldn’t use chemical-based materials. Try using an all-natural air freshener.

Apply an enzymatic cleaner

Enzymatic cleaners contain enzymes which are natural substances that can break down smells and unpleasant odors from cats’ urine, feces, and dander.

Clean your cat’s litter box regularly

The main source of odors in your home is the cat’s litter box. Your cats come here to relax after stressing themselves during the day, therefore, they are likely to create some mess in the litter box.

Groom your cat regularly

One of the best ways to control odors naturally in your home when you live with cats is to groom the cats themselves. Most cats have the habit of rolling on the ground and hunting for prey. They eventually bring the carcasses of those animals and keep them around the house, causing unpleasant odors.

Try odor-killing paints

If you’ve recently moved into a new home and you’re disturbed by odors from your cat’s urine, feces, and dander, try using odor-killing paints on the walls of your house.

Get a professional help

If after trying all possible ways of controlling odors, you don’t seem to get the result you want, you can consider hiring a professional cleaner to clean your home.

Conclusion

Keeping pets requires getting into the habit of regularly grooming those pets as well as cleaning your home. Cats have the habit of playing around and causing a mess in several spots in the house that can lead to unpleasant odors.
