How To Get Rid Of Pet Odors In Your Carpet
Almost any carpet cleaner will tell you the most common problem they see on a regular basis is pet issues, whether that means pet stains and/or the odors associated with them. And most cleaners will tell you they struggle with actually getting rid of the odor and not just covering it up.
How To Get Rid of Pet Odors In Your Carpet THE RIGHT WAY!
There are a few issues when it comes to properly getting rid of pet odor in your carpet, but in most cases they can be dealt with effectively if the cleaner is trained properly, uses the right tools, uses the right cleaning agents, and has the desire to really get rid of the odor and the source instead of just temporarily covering it up.
Let’s take a look at how to properly get rid of pet odor.
- Locate the source of the odor. This would seem a common sense issue but in many cases the reason pet odor removal fails is because the source of the odor (the location) was not found. Or at least most of it was not found. It is absolutely crucial to find the source of the odor. If the source of the odor is not found then you can almost be assured of failed results.
- Remove the source of the odor! Again this would seem like a common sense thing to do but in many cases even if the cleaner finds the source of the urine he/she may not actually REMOVE the source. It the source is not removed or altered chemically then the pet odor is going to come back.
- Cleaning Agents That Actually Destroy Any Remaining Urine. In many cases the 100% removal of the urine by physical means is not going to happen, especially in carpet and pad. But even if the removal of the urine source is NOT 100% complete, a good carpet cleaner can get rid of the rest of the urine (or at least neutralize it) by using the right cleaning agents.
