How to Get Rid of Skunk Smell

skunk smell treatment by Allstate Animal ControlOur odor control machines and products are very effective at getting rid of skunk smell. Call us immediately; we experience the greatest success when the smell is still fresh.

We offer several techniques for removing skunk smell from carpets, drapes, upholstery, and other indoor and outdoor surfaces.  We use odor control machines and products that are effective at neutralizing or masking the odors.  These methods and products work best when the skunk smell is fresh; once the odor is deeply embedded in materials, it is very difficult to remove.

The best way to get rid of skunk smell is to avoid it in the first place.  If you have skunks on your property it is advantageous to remedy the situation ASAP.  We recommend that the animals be trapped and removed quickly, hopefully before any spraying damage is done.  It is not uncommon for property damaged by skunk smell to cost thousands of dollars to replace.

If your pet is sprayed by a skunk, remember that the quicker you take action, the more thoroughly you can remove the odor.  Conventional wisdom suggests using tomato juice, but that method does not really eliminate the odor.  The products we have can offer you the most help in your efforts.  You also may be able to save clothing by using our products to clean, neutralize, and deodorize. 

Remember that if anyone gets sprayed in the eyes to quickly and thoroughly flush them with water.  Skunk spray in human eyes is incredibly irritating and has been known to cause temporary blindness, but with no permanent effects. 

No doubt when it comes to foul odors, the skunk smell takes the cake.  The most effective treatments are not home remedies, but are available from a skilled professional with specialized products.
