There is just about nothing worse than a pet stain on your freshly cleaned carpet. Even if you get the stain out of the carpet, the odor could linger indefinitely. Your at-home cleaning products purchased from the local store will only clean up the mess and mask the scent to a certain point.
In fact, if such a portion of the carpet is stained once again in the future, it is possible for irreversible damage to occur. You need a professional stain removal service with ample experience to eliminate those unsightly stains and gross odors. Our team has the experience, advanced cleaning skills and careful approach necessary to eliminate pet stains from your carpet for good.
Beware of Alleged DIY At-home Solutions
If you have read about cleaning solutions you can make on your own or purchase over the counter at the store, do not assume this approach will work. More often than not, this low-cost approach simply masks the odor. You need a proven carpet cleaning service to completely eliminate the scent as well as the stain itself. There is no sense relying on a store-bought pet stain removal product to cover up the hazard and allow it to remain a threat far into the future when a permanent solution is available in the form of our carpet cleaning experts.
A Thorough Clean is Necessary
Lean on the proven carpet cleaning gurus to clean your carpet and we will get right down to the source of the problem. We clean all surfaces and items impacted. This includes carpet, furniture, drywall, clothing and anything else that has taken on the scent of the pet’s waste or vomit. If these spaces are not thoroughly cleaned, the odor will linger. We will use whatever cleaning product is necessary for your unique type of carpet.
Once the surface is properly treated, our technicians will seal the surface to trap the odors that remain. Nasty odors formed by airborne particles can be sealed away so your carpet remains in tip-top shape. It does not matter if the lingering odor is from pet urine, vomit, wet fur or anything else. Our team will perform a comprehensive clean that brings your carpet back to normal.
What You can do in the Meantime
It is worth noting as long as your furry friend can smell his or her personal scent on your carpet, this part of the home will prove especially alluring. Your pet will continue to return to this area as time progresses. If even the slightest trace of urine remains, your cat or dog will hover around this portion of the home. You can help prevent the spread of the pet urine by cleaning all washable items in the vicinity of the accident as soon as possible.
Wash the garments and additional items in the washing machine. Include some baking soda along with your typical detergent. If the pet stain or odor lingers, repeat the wash cycle and use an enzymatic cleaner. You can find such a cleaner at your local pet supply store.
Addressing the Pet Urine Stain
Once you have called our cleaning experts, you will likely be wondering what you can do to address the stain in the meantime. Soak up all the fluid with paper towels and/or newspaper. Use thick layers of each to soak up as much moisture as possible. It will also help to position newspaper below the soiled spaces as well. Apply pressure to the padding for a full minute to promote absorption. Once a minute has passed, take the padding away.
Continue to repeat the process until the spot is slightly damp. Rinse the space with cold water. Blot the area or use your wet vac to soak up the moisture. If the pet urine stain has already set, you will require the assistance of our carpet cleaning team as quickly as possible. We can remedy those heavy stains with specialized equipment and approaches. When in doubt, rely on our experts instead of trying a DIY attempt with a steam cleaner. The heat from steam cleaners can backfire in a big way by permanently setting the stain and making the odor that much worse.
This occurs as the heat bonds the fibers to the protein. So go ahead and apply a pet odor neutralizer and wait for our cleaning team to arrive to properly address the stain and odor. If the stain seeps on down beneath the carpet’s padding, it might be necessary to replace that portion. Reach out to us right away and we will do our best to prevent a potentially costly replacement.
