How big of a problem is pet odor?

  Pet odor is a universal problem. However, we can help you deal with your pet challenges! Perfect Carpet Cleaning can help you discover that solution that works the best. Usually our normal cleaning process is all that is needed to correct little pet problems. The powerful rinsing action of our cleaning system can effectively remove urine from carpet fiber. The trouble with pet odor is that it can be much deeper than it first appears at first. Pet urine can effortlessly soak through the backing of the carpet into the padding underneath. 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 causes the bacteria to grow. This makes the problem worse and can contribute to permanent color loss of the carpet fiber.

To get rid of this problem, the urine must be removed from each of the layers affected. 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 used.

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, cannot guarantee complete removal of the odor.

If left untreated over a period of time, pet odor can become absorbed into many of the porous materials in your home. Draperies, sheet rock, upholstered furniture, base-boards, even the concrete foundation are just a few of the materials that can soak in these odors.

At Perfect Carpet Cleaning we offer a solution to help you with your pet odor problems. In the long run, however, it may be more a matter of proper maintenance instead of total elimination. After all, we love our pets and want to keep them a part of our family. Pet ownership adds to the challenge of maintaining a clean and healthy home. At Perfect Carpet Cleaning we can help you deal with those challenges.

Urine Control:

Please note that there is a difference between cleaning the urine soiling and treating the odor. Cleaning existing urine spots may not remove any associated odor. In fact, it could increase the odor in the air space for a temporary period of time. Pet urine can cause permanent harm to your floors and fabrics. It can also create an unhealthy indoor environment. When urine is first deposited onto a floor or fabric, it is in an almost "neutral" state which means it is easier to remove when it is fresh. Once it dries, it becomes more difficult to remove. If left for days or weeks, depending on the fabric or floor type, it will permanently change the dye structure, as a result causing permanent staining. Even if the soluble deposits are removed, the damage to the dye structure may already be done. No one can guarantee complete removal of all urine spots.

To prevent permanent staining in the future, clean urine spots immediately by blotting with a white terry cloth towel or plain white paper towels until no dampness is transferred.

To clean the spot: mix 1 part white vinegar to 2 parts water and massage (don't rub) into the spot with a white terry cloth. Once you have "flushed" as much of the urine out as possible, blot with dry cloths until dry to the touch. If you have a small extraction machine, rinse with fresh water until spot is removed. Do not use over the counter, general spotters or extraction detergent.
