    Odors are an ongoing problem for pet owners; candles and sprays are temporary fixes, which have to be replaced when they run out. Ionizers and Ozone generators are effective but can be expensive and require cleaning and filter replacement. There is a natural permanent application that will resolve your odor problems. Air-ReNu is a paint additive you mix with paint your walls, yes it’s a little work, but it works great and once applied it works 7/24 and does not have to be re-applied. You can find it on the Internet.
