Scrub those pet stains on the carpets and rugs until totally gone or replace them if necessary. Try cleaning formulas made especially for pet odors.

Pet odors soak into your best friend’s favorite things. Completely remove pet beds (or Fido’s most-loved couch), blankets, toys, play structures, food bowls, and the like.

Use air fresheners that eliminate odors, rather than simply mask them. There’s nothing worse than the smell of artificial pine with kitty litter undertones.

Repair or remove any furniture that’s been scratched or gnawed on.

Clean all pet “presents” from the yard.

Keep cat boxes immaculate and hidden away, or — better yet — see how your feline-loving friends feel about a temporary houseguest and remove litter boxes altogether.

Remove any dog or cat doors. Pets? What pets?

When you leave the house for a viewing, take all the furry (or feathery or scaly) residents along with you.

Make a pet hair sweep the last thing you do before you leave the house.

Until next time….
