Your beautiful carpet (or other home furnishing) suddenly wears a pet stain. And if that wasn’t bad enough, you now have to contend with embarrassing pet stain odor. Most importantly you must train your pet to avoid soiling these areas again. Then you must use pet stain removal products to get rid of the stains. Fair Price Carpet Cleaning can help you with pet stain removal so that your carpets and upholstery look exquisite with a fragrance of freshness. You’ll feel more comfortable and prideful of your home once more—when you are free of pet stains and pet odors.
Pet Odor Removal
Fair Price Carpet Cleaning uses different products that can wipe out urine and fecal odors from carpets and furniture. Some contain enzymes that will actually break down the source of the odor. Pet accidents should be taken care of as soon as they occur, simply because the longer the source of an odor stays on a surface, the harder it will be to get rid of.
Tips for Pet Odor Removal
If you are a pet owner, chances are that you will have to deal with pet stain odor at some point in time. Sometimes you can solve the problem by yourself with pet re-training or utilizing multiple stain removal products. If not, your carpets will need professional attention. You can use the following steps to determine if you can take care of the stain yourself, or if you need professional help.
Step 1: Pinpoint the source of the pet odor.
odors don not always mean they are accompanied by an easily visible stain. One way to find a spot is to actually get down on your hands and knees and sniff your way to the repulsive odor. If this isn’t your style, there is another method. Pet urine contains salts that are visible under black light. You can buy an inexpensive black light at your local hardware or party store. Turn off all the lights and close all the blinds in the room and turn on the black light. Use the black light by scanning the carpet. Pet stains will literally glow when the black light is exposed to them.
Step 2: Treat the odor
Now that you’ve identified the spot you can start treating it, but it might not be so easy. That’s because urine sometimes soaks not only into the carpet, but all the way through to the padding, the backing, and sometimes even the floor beneath. If this is the case, you cannot simply wipe the spot away. You will have to take a trip to the pet store and buy an enzyme spotter. This enzyme solution will actually eat the proteins in the urine or fecal matter that the bacteria are feeding on. The key is killing the bacteria left behind even after the visible stain is gone because they are the source of the odor. This protein eating process could take several days to eliminate the odor.
“What if I can’t remove the odor?”
Have you given the enzyme sufficient time to work? Occasionally the smell gets worse before it gets better. If your efforts haven’t succeeded in doing the job, and the pet odor continues, you may want to call in Fair Price Carpet Cleaning for a professional opinion.
