How To Get Pet Odor Out Of Carpeting

Pet odor is a widespread problem for pet owners. At Tru-Clean Surface Care, we can help you deal with your pet challenges. Tru-Clean Surface Care can help find the solution that works best for you, from minor problems to major headaches.

The problem with pet odor is that it can be much more profound than it first appears. Pet urine can easily soak through the backing of the carpet into the padding underneath. In more severe cases, the urine can penetrate the sub-floor beneath the padding. This creates a multi-layered problem.

The urine also provides for the growth of bacteria. This, in turn, contributes to a worsening of the odor problem and can contribute to permanent color loss of the carpet fiber.

To eliminate this problem, the urine must be removed or neutralized 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 with live enzymes may be applied.

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 replacing the carpet in the most severe cases.

Left untreated, pet odor can become absorbed into many of the porous materials in your home. Draperies, sheetrock, upholstered furniture, baseboards, even the concrete foundation are just a few of the materials that can absorb these odors.

At Tru-Clean Surface Care, we offer a range of solutions to help you with your pet odor problems. 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. Tru-Clean Surface Care can help you meet those challenges.
