Pet Stain & Odor Removal
One common source of odor coming from carpets is from our beloved pets!
Pet urine can permanently damage your floors and fabrics, while creating an unhealthy environment. Let our professional residential carpet cleaner restore your carpet using our proven methods.
• When urine is first secreted, it is on the acid side of the pH scale (usually 5 or 6). Urine is easily removed at this point.
• When urine dries, it turns into an alkaline on the pH scale (10 to 12) and produces a strong ammonia. At this stage, the urine is much more difficult to remove.
When urine is first deposited, it begins to oxidize and reacts with the carpet or fabric fiber to create a color change. Many times this has a yellow to brown tint. This color change can be permanent if the urine is not quickly removed. An unpleasant odor is caused from waste materials and gases from the decomposing urine. When dried urine is remoistened, it gives off an ammonia gas. This explains a recurring odor on humid moist days, or when the area is re-cleaned without an enzyme treatment.
