Pet Odor

We love our pets and they are a big part of our daily lives. But they have the tendency to leave behind unwelcome odors in our homes. If this odor is not addressed promptly, it can create greater problems. Performing carpet cleaning regularly helps keep odors under control.

It's important to realize that even the best kept home can smell like the pets that reside in the home. This is because pets usually spend most or all of their time on the ground, and the oil from their body is left on the flooring, as well as their hair. Over time this smell saturates the carpeting, leaving a scent that is not only unpleasant to most but can be embarrassing if you have company.

A Better Carpet & Floor Service recommends three ways to treat pet odor:

1. Minor Odor Treatment- Enzymes, which are formulated for chemically sensitive people and safe your family. The enzyme is sprayed on each urine spot before cleaning to absorb (eat) the urine bacteria. Since this is a surface treatment for your carpet this procedure will help reduce odor but is not intended on removing severe odor.   If you can smell the odor when you walk in the room, this would not be considered a minor odor. This procedure will help reduce or control the problem, not eliminate it. Minor pet odor is usually smelled if you are on your hands and knees or on a humid day.

 2. Moderate Odor Treatment- Water claw sub surface extraction. With this process, we saturate the spot so the cleaning agent reaches into the padding. We then use the “water claw” sub surface extractor to pull the urine out. This process will reduce the odor significantly, but may or may not completely cure severe problems. Moderate odor treatment is not guaranteed. The “water claw” procedure is priced by the spot.

 3. Major Odor Treatment- Carpet is pulled up and padding discarded. The carpet is thoroughly cleaned on both sides with an application of enzyme that neutralizes the urine. Before reinstalling the carpet and installation of new pad the sub floor should be cleaned, disinfected and sealed. This procedure should correct any major pet urine problem.


Frequently Asked Questions

Can you remove pet urine stains on carpet and upholstery?

Success depends largely on how long the stain has been in the fiber. Pet urine can cause permanent damage as well as creates an unhealthy indoor living environment if not removed promptly. When urine is first deposited onto a carpet or fabric, it is in a neutral state. This means it is easier to remove when it is fresh. Once the urine is allowed to dry it turns to alkaline emitting an ammonia odor and becomes more difficult to remove. If left for months, depending on the fiber type, it could permanently change the dye structure of the fabric and cause the fiber to deteriorate. To prevent permanent staining, clean urine deposits immediately.

What can be done about urine odor?

A Better Carpet and Floor Service technicians apply enzymes or a professional grade deodorizer to treat urine. The enzymes actually eat up urine bacteria. Urine is one stain that is very difficult to guarantee complete removal. The stains could be permanent and may lighten up but not be completely removed.

What to do if you have a severe urine odor?

If the odor is severe, the padding beneath the carpet may need to be replaced and the sub floor treated. We also treat the face fibers with enzymes, allow time to dwell, and then extract the enzymes. If the urine is covering over half of the carpet, it may be more cost effective to replace the room of carpeting.

Can pet vomit be removed from carpeting?

Yes, normally. However, the chances are reduced if an improper spot removal solution has been applied to the stain before our arrival. Some cat food has a red dye that can permanently stain some carpet fibers. This dye is similar to Kool-Aid and if this occurs, we recommend and apply a red dye removal agent that includes a heat transfer to the effected area.

Do you have a 100% Guarantee on Pet Odors?

Unfortunately there is no way to completely guarantee odors of any type. The reason is that the odor may not only be in the carpet. It may be under the padding on the cement or wood beneath the carpet. It may also be on the baseboards, drapes, walls, etc. One cleaning may not be sufficient to take care of a severe urine odor. We strongly recommend that a small wet vacuum or spot machine such as Bissell or Dirt Devil be purchased to extract the liquid out of the carpet. Paper towels never work as well as a wet vacuum.
