Pet Urine and Carpeting – A Terrible Combination

We have all seen it at some point in our lives – and even smelled it if it’s that bad. Of course we are talking about pet and human urine deposited on carpets or upholstery. Obviously it is always an accident, usually through perhaps old age or from some illness – or just plain having a weak bladder and being left for too long.

Some pet owners believe that their cherished pet (and they are cherished – we adored our dog when he was alive) can never do any wrong – and understandably but unfortunately some pets can have an accident every now and again somewhere in the house. Because there is not always an odor it’s difficult to tell. Some pet/human urine can smell really strong where others do not.

Anyway, having your carpet or upholstery ‘scanned’ with a Xenon light to determine whether they are infected is quite a simple process and takes away the guess work. If urine is caught early the damage can usually be limited or completely removed.

In the photo above you will see that the urine patches have been highlighted by our special UV urine rated detection amplifier because the salts and bacteria found in urine has become fluorescent. The patches are in fact usually INVISIBLE to the human eye – but not to us! We can deal with these issues and make your furnishings healthily clean – bacteria and virus free.

So if you have a pet or an elderly relative, and suspect that the carpets or upholstery are harboring urine deposits or bacteria, why not get the professionals in and the odors associated with them eliminated?  We also clean and treat Oriental rugs.
