How To Remove Pet Urine From Carpeting

We love our pets, and most of us consider them part of the family. And if you have a pet, you know that even the most well-trained will have an accident. That’s why we call them accidents.

Pets are often territorial and mark areas around the home to do their business. Because space is so limited in your home, often, you are unaware that your pet has been continuously urinating on the same spot. The urine deposits on the carpet will penetrate the fibers, contaminating the backing of the carpet, the padding underneath, and even the subfloor. As the urine dries, the liquid evaporates, leaving behind urine crystals that become more concentrated and intense over time.

Replacing carpet and padding can be expensive and time-consuming, so getting urine stains and odors removed correctly is vital.

Professional Grade Pet Urine Urine Treatment In A Bottle

To effectively treat and remove urine odor, urine salts and bacteria must be eliminated. Many carpet cleaning companies use strong deodorizers to “mask” urine odor, and this treatment lasts just long enough to make sure the client’s check clears the bank. It’s temporary and does not treat the underlying issues.

For years, Tru-Clean Surface Care has treated pet urine and the associated odor with a commercial grade product called Urine Neutralizer and Bacterial Enzyme Digester. This product was not available to consumers until recently and can not be purchased in stores. Urine Neutralizer is the exact same formulation professionals use to combat pet urine issues in clients’ homes.

Urine Neutralizer is designed to effectively treat stains, and neutralize urine salts and odor while eliminating off-gassing. And because the product digests bacteria, it is also effective on feces, vomit, blood, coffee, tea, spoiled food, and body oils. If the pet urine is fresh or within a couple of days of being deposited, there is no more potent, more effective product on the market.

Professional Pet Urine Treatment 

Professional intervention is necessary for pet accidents that dwell for days or in large areas. Tru-Clean Surface Care has the skill, equipment, and essential products for deep contamination treatment.

Our process begins with thoroughly inspecting your carpeting (or upholstery) using Xenon lighting. Xenon lighting is “tuned” to a wavelength that detects bacteria and causes it to glow so that our technician can determine the level of contamination and the appropriate cleaning method.

The next step of the treatment process begins with flooding the affected areas with Urine Neutralizer and Bacterial Enzyme Digester to ensure that the treatment penetrates the carpeting, padding, and subflooring. After sufficient dwell time, we use an extraction tool called a Water Claw that connects to our powerful truck-mounted unit. The cleaning solution, along with bacteria, urine salts, and other contaminants, is extracted from the treated areas so that the technician can begin a thoroughly exhaustive cleaning process.

Tru-Clean Surface Care is the “cleaner of choice” to many local Veterinarians, interior designers, child care nurseries, nursing homes, and pet owners. Our cleaning solutions are allergen-free and safe for pets and infants.
