Wednesday, November 4th, 2015

Removing the smell of urine from armchairs, sofas, and couches can prove to be difficult for even the most determined of cleaners. The absorbent nature of such furnishings is what makes the complete removal of urine odour tricky as the offending liquid often penetrates far deeper than one might imagine.
