Beware: Pet urine can in fact cause permanent staining on your carpet and upholstery! The urine is initially in a slightly acidic state — it is much easier to clean when fresh and can typically be treated with a “stage 1” topical treatment. Once it dries, it turns alkaline and becomes much more difficult to remove. If left for days, weeks or several months the urine can permanently change the dye structure, causing dye loss or a bleaching effect, which results in permanent staining. Even if the soluble deposits are removed, the damage to the dye structure may already be done.
This means that no one can guarantee complete removal of all urine stains. In severe cases where the pet urine covers more than 30% of a room, it may be more cost effective to replace the carpet and padding. Make sure to act fast and clean up your pets accidents as soon as possible or schedule a professional cleaning. We recommend using a homemade recipe when cleaning up after your pets. The majority of over the counter cleaners that are on the market can be to harsh and do more harm than good.

Do you have a 100% Guarantee on Pet Odors?
Unfortunately there is no way to completely guarantee 100% odor removal of any type. The reason is that the odor may not only be in the carpet but it could also be under the padding, on the cement or wood beneath the carpet. It may also be on the baseboards, drapes, walls, etc. Furthermore, one cleaning may not be sufficient to take care of a severe urine odor. In certain cases the carpet may have to be replaced and the subfloor treated and sealed. ***Pet odor that originates or extends BELOW the carpet backing (into the pad and/or subfloor) is not remediable with simple cleaning or topical (surface only) application of deodorizers. Remediation of deep contamination from urine is expensive and advisable only when the area involved is limited to a few square feet***
What can be done about pet stains and odor?
Area Targeting: We always analyze the area in question before we commence treatment. To target the areas with pet stains or odor a UV light and moisture probe will be used. By doing this we can find a problem area that might not be seen on the surface with normal lighting. This allows us to pin point the area of concern and use the right formula for the job.
Topical Treatments: For pet stains and odor that is recent this treatment will work wonders. We are able to treat the carpet with a urine pre-conditioner. This incredibly effective product suspends urine salts so they can be completely flushed away. We follow this up with a thorough cleaning with an all fiber rinse and then apply our topical treatment. This eco-friendly solution contains enzyme-producing bacteria that digests organic waste, destroying odors at their source for removal.
Subsurface Extraction: This will be used when the urine penetrates the carpet backing and pad, we would now perform a subsurface treatment. We start by using a UV light to perform this process. We locate all the contaminated areas, treating them one-by-one using a specialized solution for ultimate results. We then saturate the areas with a powerful, self-neutralizing oxidizer that not only destroys odor in carpet, but it attacks the stain as well. A water claw will then be used, which is specially designed to flush out the contaminants, removing it to our holding tank for prompt removal. This is followed up with a fresh water rinse and final subsurface extraction to remove remaining pet odor, stains and residue.
