Pet accidents can be a frustrating and difficult problem to deal with on your own. Removing stains and odors from your carpet may seem impossible, leaving your home feeling uncomfortable, unhealthy, and uninviting. At Precision Chem-Dry, we understand the challenges that pet stains and odors can present. That’s why we offer our Pet Urine Removal Treatment (P.U.R.T.®). This treatment combines our proven carpet cleaning process with a solution that targets the source of pet stains and odors, leaving your carpet looking and smelling fresh again.

Why are Pet Urine Stains and Odors So Difficult to Remove?

To fully appreciate the effectiveness of Chem-Dry’s Pet Urine Removal Treatment (P.U.R.T.®), it is important to understand why pet stains and odors can be so difficult to remove. Pet urine can quickly penetrate and absorb into carpet fibers and padding, making it difficult to completely eliminate. If not promptly and properly cleaned, it can seep deep into the carpet layers, leading to persistent odors and stains. Pet urine also contains various components, including urea, uric acid, and other organic compounds, which can chemically react with carpet fibers and create strong bonds that are resistant to regular cleaning methods. These compounds can also crystallize over time, further complicating the removal process.

When a pet accident occurs, it’s important to clean up the moisture as soon as possible. Some homeowners may try using store-bought cleaners or even common household hacks such as baking soda or hydrogen peroxide to remove the stain. However, these methods can risk damaging the delicate carpet fibers of your carpet.

While you may consider calling a steam cleaning service for odor and stain removal, it is important to know that steam cleaning may not be as effective as you hope. Steam cleaning relies on a large volume of water, which can actually push the urine crystals deeper into the flooring instead of flushing them out. This can result in the permanent setting of urine odors and stains, creating a significant problem for your home.

At Precision Chem-Dry in Salt Lake City, we have developed P.U.R.T.® specifically to address this issue. Our process targets the urine crystals and breaks them up, releasing them from the carpet fibers to effectively remove pet stains and odors. 

How Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaners Remove Pet Stains

The trick to removing stains is to destroy the chemical compounds that create these stains and their telltale odors. In the case of stains and smells related to pet accidents, that source is generally microscopic urine crystals and other residual matter residing deep within your carpet. You can count on our time-tested P.U.R.T. process to carefully target and effectively lift away pet urine crystals from deep within your carpet. 

As the initial step in our process, our team employs ultraviolet light to meticulously locate all pet stains, as urine deposits can be difficult to detect with the naked eye. This thorough approach ensures that even hidden stains contributing to unpleasant odors in your home are identified and addressed.

Next, we leverage our Hot Carbonating Extraction process (called HCE) to penetrate deep into carpet fibers and lift up urine crystals that are already loose. The HCE process also removes any liquid that is worsening the stain’s appearance, and any dirt or other grime in the carpet.

Lastly, our carpet cleaning technicians apply the specialized P.U.R.T. product, which works over 24 to 36 hours to break down stubborn stain- and odor-causing matter that is left behind in the carpet.
