In many cases our normal cleaning process is all that is needed to correct minor pet problems. The powerful action of our cleaning system can effectively remove urine from carpet fiber.
The problem with pet odor is that it can be much deeper than it first appears. Pet urine can easily soak through the backing of the carpet and into the padding. In more severe cases the urine can penetrate into the sub-floor beneath the padding. This creates a problem that is multi-layered.
The urine also provides for the growth of bacteria. This in turn contributes to a worsening of the odor problem and can contribute to permanent color loss of the carpet fiber.
Urine Treatment & Elimination
To eliminate this problem the urine must be removed or neutralized from each of the layers effected. If the contamination is limited to only the face yarn of the carpet then the cleaning itself may effectively remove the odor. In more severe cases a urine neutralizer may be applied.
In the most severe cases, replacement of the carpet padding, treatment of the under-side of the carpet and the sub-floor may be required. Even replacement of the carpet, however, can not guarantee complete removal of the odor.
