Addressing the Deeper Issues of Pet Stains

The substances that cause pet odor are, to say the least, unsanitary. Pet odor removal from the carpet, then, must address not only the smell of the carpet but the underlying cause of the odor. Germs, bacteria, and other harmful microbes from pet stains can cause more than just a stinky carpet; they can also be unhealthy for people who live in your home. You want your home to be clean and sanitary, and the best way to make sure that’s the case is to hire a professional for carpet cleaning, pet odor removal, and pet stain removal. Clean, fresh, good-smelling carpets aren’t just better for your family’s health, they’re also better for your indoor air quality and the overall ambiance of your home.

Difficulties of Pet Odor Removal

Let’s face it: pet odors are nearly impossible to remove. Why is it so hard to get them out of your carpet? For one thing, pet urine contains nitrogen, urea, sodium, creatinine, and potassium, all of which contribute to that pungent ammonia smell that lingers in the air, even after you have cleaned the stain to the best of your ability. Pet urine can also contain bacteria that can cause illnesses in humans. Moreover, fecal matter contains bacteria that can cause a long-lasting, very unpleasant odor. Combine these two substances, throw in some pet vomit, and it’s a wonder every pet owner’s home does not smell terrible all the time. It is also important to note that your pets’ bodily fluids don’t stay in the top layer of the carpet, but seep down into the deepest layers of fiber and even into the carpet padding. Not only do you need to use a cleaner with special enzymes to break down the bacteria and urine proteins, but you need machinery capable of cleaning all the way through the carpet.

Consumer-Grade Products Can Fall Short

The pet odor removal products available to consumers are not always effective, and many just cover up the problem instead of getting to the root of the issue. Once you have used one of these cleaners, it can actually set the stain, making it harder to remove it once the stain remover has reacted with organic materials. Not only do you end up with a carpet that still smells bad, but you also have a permanent stain on your carpet. Even if you are able to get rid of a fresh pet stain, it can be challenging to find the locations where past accidents have occurred. Unfortunately, it is not as difficult for your pets to find these spots, and this can often lead to fresh markings as your pets try to cover up old smells.

Why Professional Pet Odor Removal Is Better

Professional pet odor removal services are carried out using industrial products and industry-standard equipment. The chemicals that professionals use are much more effective than over-the-counter products in both neutralizing odors and eliminating stains. Additionally, professional carpet cleaning equipment is able to reach all the way down into the padding to get rid of the germs and contaminants that have soaked through the carpet. Once the spots have been treated, professional cleaning companies also use ultraviolet technology to make sure every spot has been addressed. By pre-treating, flushing the areas of protein and bacteria contaminants, and then using hot water extraction, they are able to eliminate pollutants completely and permanently. Once the carpets are clean, they are dried, leaving no damp areas behind.
